A little tongue-in-cheek, but pretty much sums up how I’m feeling right now!

the crystal cave

Oh. My. (I think that I posted about this cave of crystals beneath a Mexican desert awhile back, but these photos are stupendous.) I couldn’t agree more with the first comment under the article!

“Please leave these crystals as they are!! They are assential for what is to come. It took them thousands of years to become as big, beautiful and awesome as they are now. It would be a crime to try to cut them out and reduce them into smaller ones. They are needed to give this earth strength, energy and power to heal herself. Please leave them alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

We haven’t even begun to understand the power of crystals and not in a new-agey-hocus-pocus kind of way (although, there is that!), but scientifically. Crystals most certainly hold vibration and frequency. I don’t doubt that they are truly needed by planet Earth to stay balanced and do her thing. These kind of underground crystal caves are probably just as important as the forests of the Amazon in many ways.

all hallows eve

Halloween was a bust. Only one trick-or-treater rang our bell tonight. One! And now I’m sick to stomach from eating too many Hersheys kisses. Is it me or has Halloween lost its spark? Whatever happened to all the little vampires and witches who used to roam the streets come darkness? Nowadays, it seems Halloween is about costume block parties and various pre-dark organized “events.” Is the world really so dangerous that kids are not allowed to trick-or-treat at night anymore or is my neighborhood just stuffy? Hm. So, as we sat waiting for the doorbell tonight, trying to get into the Halloween mood, I fiddled with a Halloween playlist. And after much consideration, I came to the conclusion that the ultimate Hallows Eve song is “Cry Little Sister” by Gerard McMann (aka G Tom Mac) because, really, you can’t beat that spooky cathedral organ solo! If you were a child of the 80’s, you will most certainly recall this song from The Lost Boys, and if you’re anything like me, you can also name all the cast members, their height, weight and birthdays. Please tell me I’m not the only one who remembers Billy Wirth and Brook McCarter. Anyone?

I’m following this tune with Bloodletting by Concrete Blonde and then a few slow Halloween jams like Goldfrapp’s “Lovely Head”, Cat Power’s “Werewolf”, “Waiting for the Night” by Depeche Mode and “I Put A Spell on You” (I like the Bryan Ferry cover.) Then, some oldies like Donovan’s “Season of the Witch” and Roky Erickson’s “I Walked With a Zombie” and “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell. What other songs sound like Halloween??
