Lunar Eclipse Antics

I'm going to be photographing the total lunar eclipse tonight from the grounds of the Bartonville Asylum for the Incurable Insane. I want to see what the lunar energy is going to do to the spiritual energy there. Photos to follow this week if I get anything.

No gates. Most of the buildings are all sealed up with sheet metal and chains. I won't be going in any of the buildings. I'll just be shooting them and the cemeteries from the outside.

You know, I and most of the people who've been there that I talk to don't get the feeling of any of the spirits being unsettled so much. It's a strange place. In it's heydey they were reknowned for the kindness they showed the patients. When it was shut down in 72, it was not because of complaints about the care like other institutions. You get a feeling of people being there but you don't get the feeling they are unhappy.

I wonder if there is not a reason why some spirits stay behind. Perhaps they have a choice and choose not to go on. Maybe I'll know when I get to that point.

My grandma has stayed in her house for the last 11 years and I'm pretty sure she knows she's dead. She's just there. She doesn't seem to have anything to finish or want to leave for that matter and she was never the type to linger if she didn't want to be there.

I guess I'm just curious as to how the spirtual energy there differs from other areas on a regular basis....

If your sensitive to it, there is always this sort of tactile hum going on. For a lot of folks, that was the only home they ever knew so they hang around. I've not got to go inside but I've shot through windows and doors. A friend of mine shot inside the first floor once and got lots of little floating orbs and such. I got some spirit activity in two of the cemeteries.

It's actually pretty cloudy here too. You folks are getting our rain from yesterday now. I'm hoping it will clear off before tonight at least enough to see the moon. If not, I'll just be shooting the spirits.

I'm just hoping our clouds clear off enough to see the moon. If not it will just be the buildings and cemeteries.

If the sky right now is any indication, I might not get much of the eclipse but maybe some good ghost pics.

I've decided that you are too interesting not to add. So I hope you mind me doing so.

Nope, don't mind at all. And I'll add you in return. I got good shots of the eclipse last night, nothing really good from the Asylum. No ghosties anyway.
