All-hallow-even and a #Lenox Cat #Giveaway




Energy surrounds us all the time.  But around Halloween, we're even more aware of it.  Who hasn't heard something go bump in the night when there is no logical explanation for the noise?  After a loved one passes, have you ever felt their presence?  On an important occasion or maybe a holiday?  Love is energy that never leaves us and I think we go on feeling it throughout our lives.  I have an antique chest that belonged to my mom.  Evey time I pass it, I remember my childhood and the house where I grew up.  Every once in a while, it seems to give off a scent that can take me back there in my mind...and in my heart.  When it does, it seems to be at those times when I need the touch of my mom's hand on my shoulder the most.

I think energy, a sixth sense and intuition are all closely related.  That's why it was easy for me to create a heroine who can find missing persons through their bonds with their loved ones.  In NATHAN'S VOW, Nathan asks Gillian to assist him in finding his ex-wife and daughters.  Although Gillian was recommended to him because of her success rate, he is skeptical at first.  But he learns she indeed has a gift.  He also learns that love is the greatest gift of all.

Halloween stirs up the pot of ideas beyond our usual realm.  Maybe that's why some of the images surrounding it are so macabre.  But "Halloween" means "all-hallow-even."  Maybe it's simply a night to celebrate everything we don't understand and everything we wish we did!

Lenox Cat Giveaway

As a memento of this All-hallow-even, I'm giving away a Lenox black cat that's 3 1/2 inches high.  All you have to do to get a chance at the giveaway is to leave a comment with your e-mail address on this blog, even if it's simply, "I like black cats."  I'll be accepting comments until midnight October 31 EST.  U.S. and Canadian entries only.  I have two black cats (along with a gray tabby) and they bring me lots of love and good luck.

Best,
Karen

I will probably be banned after making this comment but I'll take my chances. I do not own a cat and am not a cat lover but I have a good reason for that which goes back to my childhood. However I do have a couple of cats in my collection of figurines.

I think my iPad swallowed my previous comment! I love cats! I always have even before I brought home my first stray. Two years ago, I lost my Simba at 16 when he passed away on his birthday. Last year, his brother from another mother, Riley also passed away, age 15, one day after his birthday. He wasn't ill and just laying with me when he jerked twice and passed. I am still grieving and I don't know if I will get another. However, at night, I swear I feel them wandering into our bed, walking around me to find their special sleep spots, one on either side of me. I do believe spirits wander, staying near those they loved who loved them back. My boys know how much I loved them and I know they loved me. Those ghostly wanderings are more comforting than scary to me.
