Halloween is over, and this post has nothing to do with Halloween.
I love graveyards especially historical graveyards. Here in Rhode Island we have many dating back to the 1600′s. I love the peace and quiet of a graveyard, where the only thing you can hear is the wind. I go out of my way to find these places, some are in great condition, some are overgrown, and then some are vandalized which really bothers me.
I do not do rubbings of the gravestones, it just seems a bit invasive of the final resting place of these people, but I do take pictures of the gravestones, like these ones I took today.
I also like to research local legends and go visit these graveyards too, because I find legends and the paranormal intriguing. We have a few Vampire legends dating back to the early 1700′s here in Rhode Island.
We have the legend of Mercy Brown and Sarah Tillinghast just to name a couple,
I have visited both Mercy and Sarah’s gravesites and I feel a little uneasy at Sarah’s. Like all good legends there is some absolute truth mixed with what may be a little less than the truth and that certainly holds true with these two vampires.
Speaking of Vampires, I am writing a novel about them, the working title is
“Hunting Humans, Before The Dawn”
It is nowhere near finished but I will keep you all updated as it progresses, and let out little teasers for you.
