Just in time for Halloween. The choice is yours as to what you learn from such tales.
Are they bad luck or good luck?
Maybe it’s the travel, maybe it’s the stressful times, maybe it’s the virus, maybe it’s the Halloween season or maybe it’s the I don’t know what … but the dreams are vivid. Night before last it was a nightmare.
A nightmare brings to mind one of my favorite tunes from a favorite band. Seasonally appropriate I think.
Metallica – Enter Sandman – 1991

This has been a favorite tune of Fearsome’s for years. He relates to it on a level I cannot fully explain in this short post. Somehow we missed this re-release of it in this here acoustic form. It’s simple, beautiful and stunning. It gave us chills.

Upon meeting Danny, Hallorann quickly realizes that Danny shines. Hallorann then warns Danny of what he may experience at the overlook hotel and encourages Danny to keep in mind that the spirits are just that, spirits, that cannot themselves hurt Danny.
This piece on the hotel that inspired Stephen King begs one to ask, does Stephen King shine too?
