I Lived In a Haunted House

  Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay No, really. I used to live in a haunted house. A friend of mine on Twitter, author Aaron Clayton, posted a question on Twitter the other day. He was wanting to know whether or not his followers believed in ghosts. I had to chime in as I know, first hand, that ghosts are real. As I said before, I used to live in a haunted house. When I was about 14/15, my parents moved us into a little apartment building. When I say little, I'm talking about an old house that had been converted into an apartment complex. There were a total of 4 apartments in the whole place; 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs. My parents and I lived in the back basement apartment and some friends of theirs lived in the front part. My brother and his wife were living in the front upstairs apartment, but the back upstairs space was empty. Nothing seemed out of the normal. That was soon to change. About a year after we'd moved in, my sister and her husband moved into the back upstairs apartment. It was the smallest one in the whole place. A single bedroom, the kitchen and living room were pretty much one space, and a bathroom that had originally been a closet. It was tiny. But it's what happened after they'd moved in that caught our attention. It didn't seem like much at first. When they first moved in, little things just seemed to get misplaced. My mom's car keys, the neighbor kids' school books, one of my sister-in-law's glass unicorns. Nothing major, just enough to keep all of us wondering what the hell was going on.

Delving Into the Para-Mythic World

Image by Stefan Keller from Pixabay Welcome to the world of the Para-Mythic. A mixture of the paranormal and the mythologies that have surrounded mankind since the dawn of time. My name is Christine Graves and I'll be your host on this strange ride. Okay, here's the thing. I started a blog called Para-Mythic on a Blogger site a long time ago. I've updated it here and there, but never really got anywhere. And I have no one to blame but myself. However, I now have a place where I can bring all my blogs together in one showcase and maybe actually get some real stuff up and going. So what's Para-Mythic to me? Oh hey, thanks for asking. I'm a huge mythology buff and I dig a lot of the paranormal stuff. I'm not a fan of horror and all things gory, but I do like to research the strange and unusual. I have a passion for the unknown, the histories and mysteries of our world, and the idea that there might be something beyond what we can see and hear. So come along and let's see where this trail takes us. Will we find a new world? An old myth come to life? Maybe, maybe not. But we'll have a lot of fun on the way.
