A WORD BEFORE YOU BEGIN
We all have life stories that give us goose bumps, yet the sheer volume and “creep factor” of our family stories are such that I have to wonder “what gives?”
It’s certainly made me question the age-old argument of fate versus free will. Are we set up, fated to a prearranged destiny? Does everything happen for a reason? If life is built on destiny’s shoulder, if we are nothing but mere marionettes, then there’s no hope in changing the underlying creepy theme.
Or, does free will play a part? And if so, at least in my universe where the “creep” continues, it makes me wonder about the choices I make that time and again place me in creepy, unsettling situations. Perhaps within these stories a common thread will be found and maybe, just maybe, it can be unraveled in order for me to live the rest of my remaining days outside the “creep.”
What a quest!
Obviously I can’t recall exactly what our conversations were when all this went down in the 1960’s, but the framework is right. In other words, the stories are true, even though there is a slight embellishment of the reenactment and some liberty with dialogue.
Before you begin, you should know that many of these stories don’t reveal who-done- it, nor answer the ultimate question - why. For those of you who look for resolutions, solutions, a proper ending that is neatly served with a shot of whiskey, you won’t find it here in these stories.
