Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, A Favorite Portrait, and Hold it Over the Flames…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am not too happy today.  Still trying to get to my next painting but there too many obstacles.  I have to take Clyde to the opthalmologist in Salem today. 

We had a great doctor here but he was working out of Salem and Radford.  Now he is no longer in Radford and Clyde needs drops for glaucoma so we can’t wait until an appointment he has here in August.   I don’t want him driving back with dilated eyes on I-81 so I have to take him. 

Oh well, health comes first so we will be spending a lot of time in Salem and on the road.  Maybe tomorrow I can get started.

Life with The Word and Bird Man

I have been working hard at cleaning out various shelves and closets.  Inventory is long over do and we hope to be moving in a few years so I want to get rid of things we don’t want anymore.

Yesterday I was cleaning out the cabinet over the stove and found an interesting instruction sheet.  It was on what to do if there is a fire.  Call 911 was first.  Then it said never to put water or flour on the fire.  No water?  Of course no flour.  I don’t want to make pancakes on an out of control fire.

Anyway, I showed the whole instruction pamphlet to Clyde and told him we should probably read it now rather than when we have a fire.

His smart alec remark was why not?  We can hold it over the fire and read it and then we will know just what to do!

East Hall Ghost

East Hall Dormitory is on Appalachian  State University.  The story began in the 1960’s.  A student took her life on the lowest floor of the five story section. The cause is not remembered.  She hung her self with a long silk scarf in the basement restroom.

Ever since then students have reported strange happenings. Whispering in the hallways, strange balls of light hovering near the ceiling in the dorm rooms, and one man claimed a ghost toppled him over after he heard the words, “My Dorm.”

The strongest presence of a ghost is felt in the basement where the girl died.  Students have reported seeing a blue mist about the size of a human being moving through walls and always ending the walk at the bathroom.

Whatever is going on, there seems to be an affect on the students that live there.  There have been a lot of psychotic episodes and the school’s mental health services  keep a close eye on the students in this dorm and they are always on the look out for early signs that a student that has gone East!

I got this story from North Carolina Ghosts and Legends on the online publication Stories from the Mountains

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Once again The Word Man has published his work!  I am very impressed with how frequently he is publishing his poetry these days!   He is not sure how many times he has been published but he knows it is more than 200 times in small press publications!

This time three of his poems will be in The Kentucky Review!  They will appear in the online publication  soon and the printed publication in January 2015.  Way to go Word Man!
