Well, links to video, anyway! :)

You should be sick more often, if you write this well afterward! :)


Signalman. I've been looking for a new copy of a book I used to own, a collection of ghost stories. It had "Casting the Runes" in it, and it also had a tale of a ghostly signalman. I've been trying to think of other stories' titles, and that helps. I shall redouble my efforts to find it.


By God, that did it. I've been looking for that for months, and searching for "anthology ghost stories the signalman" found it.

Thank you, sir.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the fact that as I've gotten a little older, I've started to enjoy walking for exercise/pleasure, etc. I think it has to do with the fact that my free-and-alone time is limited and it's a good use of that time.

Of course, it's snowing and about 25 (not to mention pitch- black) at the moment so perhaps now is not the time for a stroll.


Now that I have a bit more time to comment - that sounds like some of the walks available here - they dip in and out of reclaimed or neglected patches of wildness, and urban stretches. Here, many of the urban stretches are also wild and neglected - it's easy to envision "a world after" walking around here.

I'm thinking that my New Year's Resolution will be to get outside and walk every day, if only around the block.


Thanks for the link, Lance. FYI- our juncos have arrived...


I had to read this again... it's pure bird porn... taunting me with promises of gangs of nuthatches. How I hope we get those again this year. They made me feel downright giddy.
