Halloween Edition of A Family Conversation: Death, The Afterlife, The Spirit World & “The Client”(Part III)

A Family Conversation, an ongoing conversation between blogging cousins, Ron Brown and Lady G, is celebrating the time of year when the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds becomes paper thin.

************************************************************************

The cousins continue their supernatural conversation with real ghost stories prompted by LadyG’s post “The Client.”

Although you can easily follow along with each of these posts independently, it would be better to check out parts I & II of this series beforehand.

In today’s audio, we offer our pontifications on all things ghostly and mysterious–including:

  • Is death to be feared or welcomed?
  • Deathbed vision or dopamine?
  • Ghosts aren’t like Casper—they’re more realistic
  • Being clairsentient and feeling the spirits
  • Witches or devils riding people in their sleep? Sleep paralysis?—-Or something else?
  • Heaven, hell or purgatory? Why do ghosts hang around?
  • Where’s our consciousness located? Is it local to the body?
    • NOTE: LadyG mistakenly used the word “marionette” when she really meant to refer to the person who manipulates the strings of a marionette. 🤪
  • Old Grandmas from the South can scare the shit out of you!
  • Reanimated corpses are one of LadyG’s greatest fears
  • Monkey’s Paw
  • Mr. Garrity and the Graves

Halloween Edition of A Family Conversation: Hoodoo, Voodoo and “The Client” (Part I)

A Family Conversation, an ongoing conversation between blogging cousins, Ron Brown and Lady G, is celebrating the time of year when the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds becomes paper thin.

***********************************************************************

For the remainder of this month, we are working with Ethereal Standard Time. That said, there’s no telling when these little ditties will be released.

But…

Posts will occur at the witching hour…..

The date is anybody’s guess so keep a watch….

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA…..*laughed LadyG using her very best Vincent Price transatlantic accent*

And so…

Today, we are discussing LadyG’s excerpt from her newest writing project that has yet to be named.

So, for the sake of sanity, we will refer to it as “The Client.”

Got it?

Good!

Now then, during this discussion, we touched on the following:

  • Popeyes chicken. C’mon….who would we be without talk of fried chicken?
  • Feeling protective of your writings
  • Voodoo, hoodoo, spiritual workers and all manner of magick and mystery
  • A reading of the excerpt (by LadyG)
  • Binding spells go all the way back to antiquity
  • Bounded and not knowing
  • Leave nothing to chance when dealing with magickal folks
  • Big strong ding-a-lings; yeah, we’re talking about that!

Enjoy,

A Family Conversation: The End of Eliza’s Grave…Or is it?

A Family Conversation, an ongoing conversation between blogging cousins, Ron Brown and Lady G, is celebrating the time of year when the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds becomes paper thin.

**********************************************************************

Are we at the end of the story or is this…”only the beginning….only just the start?”

…said LadyG singing from Chicago’s “Beginnings.”

At any rate, listen in as we add just a bit more insight to the conversation on Eliza’s Grave.

We also discuss our own family’s history with the “unseen,” including the fact that one of our family members was born with “the caul.”

Don’t know what that is?

In the South, we call that phenomenon “VEILS!”

To learn more…listen up 🙂

Thanks for listening and follow Ron at The Time Tunnel

Halloween Edition of A Family Conversation: Eliza’s Grave (Part II)

A Family Conversation, an ongoing conversation between blogging cousins, Ron Brown and Lady G, is celebrating the time of year when the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds becomes paper thin.

**********************************************************************

In this edition, Ron shares a bit more about the symbolism of “The Crow.”

We also ponder the following:

  • The mystery of a “real live” person’s grave and DNA Ancestry research… and yes I understand that this is an oxymoron-ish statement 😂
  • Whether Eliza’s ghost wants her story told
  • Transcending time and generational shared experiences
  • “Cassingles” aka cassette tapes usually featuring one song and possibly the “remix.”
  • Ron’s writing process

And…

Whether or not we believe that Universal ideas float around the atmosphere and are available to all.

Did Michael Jackson believe in this concept?

Does LadyG?

Ron has his doubts.

Anyway…

A Family Conversation, an ongoing conversation between blogging cousins, Ron Brown and Lady G, is celebrating the time of year when the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds becomes paper thin.

**********************************************************************

WARNING: I posted this after drinking a glass of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay, so God only knows how it’s going to turn out!

Forgive me!

Anyway…

In this week’s post, we discuss Ron’s upcoming book, Eliza’s Grave.

During our conversation we touch on:

  • Random trash talk about Church’s Chicken, beer, and fall being our favorite time of year
  • Why LadyG loves Halloween and Ron’s unforgettable night of trick or treating
  • Eliza’s discovery and an introduction
  • The challenges of writing a book and wonderful advice received from our friend Roger in the U.K.
  • 1961, The Year of the Crow

We also include our recommendations for Bloggers who can really write!

Roger is an awesome writer from Wales. We are huge fans and we highly recommend his blog.

Although we didn’t get around to talking about them in this post, we also HIGHLY recommend :

Dr. Katherin Garland, a professor who hails from Chicago. The professor owns an editing business y’all!

Best believe, editors are an invaluable part of the process! Well worth the money.

In addition, we happily recommend Ellie P., a fabulous Canadian author and grammar maven!

There are many more… and we will include those as we go along!

Anyway….

Enjoy the conversation and please feel free to comment below

Hello my loves!

Here’s a quick check-in as Daddy and I transition from a summer garden to a fall garden. If you are just tuning in, you’d have to go back to the beginning to see why we are where we are today.

Not to worry though, you can find past episodes on the right panel of this blog under categories: Greens From Daddy’s Patio.
