with Summer's best of Weather and Autumn's best of cheer.
~Helen Hunt Jackson~


 “The first flash of color always excites me as much as the first frail, courageous bloom of spring. This is, in a sense, my season--sometimes warm and, when the wind blows an alert, sometimes cold. But there is a clarity about September. On clear days, the sun seems brighter, the sky more blue, the white clouds take on marvelous shapes; the moon is a wonderful apparition, rising gold, cooling to silver; and the stars are so big. The September storms--the hurricane warnings far away, the sudden gales, the downpour of rain that we have so badly needed here for so long--are exhilarating, and there's a promise that what September starts, October will carry on, catching the torch flung into her hand.”
~Faith Baldwin, Evening Star~

 

 “We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds 
of summer's wreckage. We will welcome summer's ghost.”
~Heny Rollins~

but the days grow short when you reach September."

“Ah, September! You are the doorway to the season that awakens my soul... 
but I must confess that I love you only because you are a prelude to my beloved October.”

My favourite freaky TV shows - Addams Family


The everyday story of a new family moving into a new neighbourhood first went to air on the 18th of September 1964. At the heart it was a very traditional story of an extended family and their everyday lives and tribulations. The one main thing that always stood out and made this family drama somewhat different to many other family shows was that this family actually cared about each other.

The husband and wife really were a love match. As an extended family of three generations they of course had their private squabble occasionally but they always stood together by the end of the show. Their tastes in furnishings were somewhat eccentric, hobbies somewhat macabre. They had a retinue of staff that could on first meeting be unnerving to any new visitors.  Yet all their staff were very loyal to the family, from Lurch the butler to 'Thing', a disembodied hand which given how adapt it was at tasks would have seem to be an asset to any home. The families pets were also apt to take visitors by surprise, yet I'm sure Kitty cat really did only want to play. I guess some people are scared of cats, though why they tried to always run, I've no idea.

Sadly the family didn't always seem to be accepted in to their neighbourhood, it was very hard to see why as when viewed aside of their neighbours the Addams seemed the most decent and rock solid family in the area.


A catchy theme tune that stuck in your head was the hook that drew you in and the family were one you wanted to be part off. Good solid homely fun.

Edit - Opps I've just realised this blog party is suppose to be about the freaky,
sorry I've written about such an ordinary family TV show, I should have 
concentrated more on their everyday neighbours, now they really were quite freaky.

Warning, I'm bored

Changes are afoot.

I haven't known where I'm going with this blog for a long time. I don't like what it's become as it's not me anymore, not sure it ever was completely. Those who know me know my Aspi brain likes things in themes and order. This blog has moved far from its origins and I’ve had tried to get it back but I’ve slowly come to realised that in the time I’ve had this blog I’ve also moved on. I've tried to make it traditional witchy as it once was but my heart keeps leaping into flights of fancy too often to keep that up. I've tried to make it all whimsy Halloween and fantasy but I have qualms of about witches just being linked with Halloween. I keep trying to get away and start different blogs, but I always drift back here, this is home. Some of my new blogs I like and will stay, they fit different themes like my dolls and crafting which can move from here to be just use as and when but I'm still back here, searching for an everyday blogging home, a home that represents me, not a stereotype public image of a witch.

I keep taking posts out, then putting them back in, trying different looks. I love the colour black but I'll never be a truly dark witch even if it matches my mood perfectly sometimes. Black makes a dash of colour dance. I like vintage and modern. My heart and soul was born witchy. I treasure the old ways, yet also happy to dance with the new. This witchy home needs to either move into the 21st century, mix old and new and come complete with cactus, dinosaurs and flamingo's if it's going to represent me. Time to redecorate, move this blog forward and take another of these damn masks off. I wear so many trying to fit in with everyone else it gets tiring.

Hopefully someone may still visit. Lots of changing and redecorating ahead.



Edit - No, this blog still isn't working for me, no matter how I fiddle about with the name I just can't seem to combine all I want into one blog, a bright a side of me with my internal love of darkness along side fantasy and spiritual side.. My aspi brain refuses to accept the mix. Going to have to rethink.

My Favourite Freaky TV Shows - True Blood


This show wasn't just about a family but whole town and their interacting lives. The town was only a small country town and all the towns folks lives seem to eventually merge in some way. The protagonist is Sookie a waitress working in a little country bar and eating place.




Her story revolves around her relationships starting with her falling for a much older man, Bill and gradually draws in the lives of others around her, work colleagues, friends, neighbours and future lovers. It involves all the normal everyday things a town drama is known for; personal lives of it's inhabitants, gossip, crime, good times and bad. A very traditional and simple tale of a small town and its inhabitants who just happen to be mainly vampires, fairies, werewolves or other inhabitants of a shape shifting world.

(Hmm reading back maybe still not so freaky, maybe my freaky dial is faulty.)
