If you believe Halloween is all about the dead coming out of hiding, then I have a story, I think Michael Jackson is trying to show himself to me through my painting. I have always admired him, even when the whole world seemed to hate him, I saw good in him. I am not sure what you thought, but I really did think Michael Jackson was an interesting person. When I was a kid, I had a crush on him.
But today, as I stood back from my painting, I thought I saw his face coming through the smeared paint I had just pushed accross the canvas.
I showed it to my daughter, she could not see it. She just looked at me and smiled. Sorry mom, I am not seeing it. But, I said, OK now look, I grabbed a pencil and pointed specifically to the lips, the chin, the hair, don't you see it now? No mom, and gave me the look again.
Some people need to open up their minds a little more!
I think maybe I drank too much freshly ground Starbucks Coffee or something. But, seriously, Michael Jackson?
Hmmmm, I probably shouldn't be telling this to anyone.
Does anyone read these blogs anyway?
Maybe someone will use it against me...
Finally, my ex husband can say, I REST MY CASE.
All I ask is, if they take me away... I have gag reflex, so please keep that rag thing out of my mouth.
OH, AND...'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night.
...OH MY GOSH, WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?
Michael, is that you?
Does anybody else have freaky stories about their paintings?
Trick or Treat is a Combination of Celtic and Christian Influence
The early history known of the Celts is that on All Hallow's Eve, the belief was that spirits of the dead would try to take over the bodies of the living. The idea of scaring the spirits away with bonfires and scary costumes or practical jokes and confusing tricks is probably the basis of what is understood to be the trick part of trick-or-treat. It is possible, but undocumented, that the carving of a pumpkin in order to create a scary facade may have begun at this time as well.
