Hey there! I’m not a fan of the iPad and I’m struggling to be techie. It’s annoying to feel so much older than you really are. Soo… It is taking me a while and there won’t be anything fancy.
I’ve been with my family on vacation for a few days. We’re staying in a huge and beautiful cabin in the Smoky Mountains outside of Gatlinburg in Tennessee. We’ll be here for a few days more. It has been wonderful and we’ve done quite a bit of relaxing. All of the family dogs are with us and are keeping us entertained.
The Gatlinburg strip is pretty tacky and the traffic is insane. Reminds me of Branson. We’ve been through that drama and so now we’re happy to just hibernate like bears… which I hope we never see, by the way. And don’t get me started on Sasquatch… 😉
In the next couple of days I hope to find the old village and cemetery. I’ll take some pictures and I’ll have an audio recorder with me.
If I did it correctly, you should see photos below. Hope everyone is enjoying summer (or whatever season you’re experiencing)!
Today during a class of mine a student asked me something about Bigfoot. First of all, it was a completely random moment in class. I promise I don’t teach paranormal studies. 🙂
Anyway, I explained that there were a lot of things I am open to believing in… aliens, ghosts, and other paranormal topics. Bigfoot? Not so much. Go ahead, bring up astral travel at dinner! I’ll tell you how I’ve tried it and have read quite a bit about it. Reincarnation? Channeling? Automatic Writing? Remote Viewing? Sure! I’d love to learn more about it all and believe it’s all absolutely real. But when it comes to Bigfoot, that’s a little too crazy for me. I find it hard to keep a straight face while having Bigfoot conversations. Why is that?
There are a few other topics that make my ego uncomfortable when I hear or read about them. It’s that same ego that forces me to want to roll my eyes as I tell myself “It’s okay… just get past this chapter. You don’t have to be sucked into believing every paranormal topic you read about.” 🙂
What do you think about these?
Elves, Fairies & Leprechauns – Sylvia Browne says elves and leprechauns are real and reside in the “underworld”, which is supposedly not an evil place of darkness like it sounds.
Parallel Universes/Multiverses – I’m sorry… my brain can’t even begin to comprehend that… yet there are many, many books written on the subject.
Time Slips – What?!
So…. What paranormal topics are a bit too far-fetched for you?
