Of Theatres and Ghosts

Excerpt from the Starlight Letters: Most houses are not haunted. The same is true for schools, police stations, libraries and other civic buildings. But if you visit just about any theatre in any country that is at least 75 years old, you'll hear a ghost story. Why is this? I think I have an answer: Life Bait. Life Bait is essentially an attractant for life and theatres put out a lot of it. First, theatres generally host a number of plays each year that have been performed for decades or centuries. This means they are familiar to a spirit from the past. Second, there is a lot of emotional energy in a theatre, either inherent in the play itself or from the butterflies felt by the performers before they go on stage. I believe all of this attracts and holds spirits to theatres : Life Bait.

The Starlight Letters

There is a conspiracy afoot. No publishers have yet to agree to publish my life's work in the paranormal -- The Starlight Letters. Thus, a new option is open to me. I shall publish all I know, which is more than all the previous written works on the paranormal combined, using Amazon. This is an opportunity unavailable to me in the 1980s when I first tried to publish the first section of my research. It was then that the voices crept into my head and I was institutionalized. It was not a coincidence. But I am back. I will change the world. Look out you shadows of the swirling underworld. I will expose and defeat you all! James Starlight, PhD.

A Life Returned

I have returned to life. In and out of dreaded hospitals I have finally breached the surface of health. I intend to return to the hunt and seek out ghosts wherever they might be. I also have less than a year to ready the Starlight Letters for publication. To do that, I must revisit some of the old sites of previous investigations. The ghosts in Nevada City, Sonora, Placerville, Sacramento, Auburn, and Georgetown will once again feel my wrath. To the hunt! James Starlight, PhD

From the Vile Depths

I swam for the surface of consciousness and broke through the watery casket that had entombed me. Clear of thought and action, I rose from my bed and tore off the tubes and wires entrapped me. Alarms pulsed annoyingly as I made my escape, but escape I did.

I found my clothes folded neatly in a drawer along with my wallet, keys, watch and some money. It wasn't enough for public transportation, but I knew where a nearby truck stop was and truckers are lonely road people who love to help and rarely ask questions.

I eventually found my way home. My daughter is still at work. She will be gloriously happy to see me!!

Now I am free to pursue those that have died yet still walk among us.

The experiment worked! My grandfather made contact after three weeks of bacon and eggs. He moved the chair across from where I sat and made the egg yolks quiver. I even thought I heard a sigh.

This is very fortunate. I was ill after the first few days from the scent of fried bacon and eggs.

I also have an offer from a highly respectable paranormal group to publish the Starlight Letters. Keep a watchful eye on the countdown ticker at the top of my blog.

My grandfather loved bacon and eggs -- not just for breakfast, but for lunch and dinner as well. There were days he would eat nothing but bacon and eggs. Sadly, such food caught up with him and he died of a heart attack at the age of 61.

I have often wondered if the aromas of certain foods can attract a particular ghost. And would such aroma trigger a response? To test this, I will prepare a serving of bacon and fried eggs each evening and serve it to the empty chair across from mine. I will talk to my grandfather and see if he decides to visit me. I will do this for a period of one month and will post the results of the test here on my blog.

On a side note, I hereby announce that I have set a publication date for the Starlight Letters, the greatest collection of data and musings on the paranormal ever brought before the public. The date is May 16, 2014.

Free at Last!

I am once again free of the cursed hospital. I have had many months to contemplate my next move and I believe I have found it. Accepted paranormal theory stipulates that poltergeists are really the unconscious telekenetic flares of a young girl on the verge of womanhood. I believe this to be untrue. Rather, I believe that the extraordinary energy put out by such young women provides a source of power that ghosts cannot find elsewhere in nature. The young woman and the ghost forge an unconscious bind -- almost symbiotic -- in which the ghost may sometimes perform tasks that would assist the young woman in some way. This is yet a theory, but one I shall put all my efforts into proving one way or the other.
