Our lil family was able to save up and get a new computer for all Borg needs (that's what my hubby calls my connection to the internets) alas we have had connectivity issues for the last couple months. Our apartment comes with free WiFi but somehow spooky old limestone and brick mansions do not make the best for those wayward signals. We finally adjusted our budget and got a mobile hotspot from our phone service and here I am! I have a spooky Ouija story I had been working and reworking on for you dear readers. One of maybe a handful of times I have ever used one. It needed a little further working on from one computer to the next, so I hope to get that out in the next couple days.
Speaking of signals, I turned the Wifi on my phone and opened a maps app. The signal actually showed the blue dot wandering in the walking court just outside my house. The Walking path of a certain nieghbourhood ghost.. coincidence or ???
Which leads me to other app I found for my phone through the Google Play feature (I am sure they must have it for you Apple folks in your iTunes market) It is called "The Ghost Speaker" (c) by Krugism. The Ghost Speaker works like Ovilus , which you may have seen on some Ghost Hunting type shows where it take the EMF reading of your environment and turns it into words. I like to just turn it on and see what comes up. Sometimes it isn't so random and that's the fun part. It's quite inspiring and a lot of the reviews by actual ghost hunters using it on investigations seems very promising. I have other plans for this app actually that are inspired by it but not necessarily it's intended purpose. I think it could be more of a inspiration for the writing of stories and songs...
Which leads into my next topic of catch up..music! For those who may just know this blogger as a writer of "spooky things that happened to me" may not know that for the last 20 years or so I have spent a bulk of time as a professional musician, namely a singer. I have been lucky enough to get to create and craft great music with really talented folks. In the last several months I have been afforded a nice break from the constant gigging that I have been doing since my teen years! Wow , being almost 40 and realizing that I have spent all that time on a stage somewhere singing my heart out is something that makes my head spin a little bit. The only other break I took was for 1 month in 2008 when I got my tonsils removed and had to be silent to heal. This current break is more a scheduling challenge. My husband and I have played music together in bands since our re-meeting at a band rehearsal in 2004, we had our first child in 2011 and living in an new town where we don't know anyone makes gigging together a little hard with a now mobile toddler. Previously we took shows where we could take her along, either strapped to my chest where she could be sung to sleep with a full band (with proper ear protection, of course) or sitting in the lap of a family member watching Mum sing or play Theremin or Flute.
