31 Days of Halloween with The Kelly Society Day 4 - Shawn Wilson
31 Days of Halloween with
The Kelly Society
Hi everybody. It’s Shawn Wilson. For those of you who follow our blog, you know that I’m Vivien Kelly in training (insert laughter here)! But, seriously, under her tutelage my psychic skills have been expanding and sharpening. I hope to be at Vivien’s level in another couple years. I’ve taken on my own clients for readings and assist Vivien on paranormal cleansings (like haunted houses and the like).
I found this old-fashioned Halloween card on Vivien’s desk and asked her if I could use it for this post. I find it fascinating and amusing that in Victorian times, the belief was if a woman looked into a mirror on Halloween night, she would see the face of her future husband. Wow! If that’s true, I have to try it! I already know whose face I’d like to see, and he’s a member of The Kelly Society—Jason Lee. I know he will read this post, because he is the creator and administrator of this website. I can’t wait to see his reaction to what I just typed!
In closing, I want to share one of my Halloween childhood memories. This was when I was seven years old, before my father died. We were a happy family back then. Anyway, I dressed as Peter Pan, because it was my favorite animated movie. Even back then it was deemed a classic. My mother tried to convince me to be a fairy princess, but no! I had to be Peter Pan. So, she sewed me a costume (she’s a fabulous seamstress) and off I went. My parents took me around our neighborhood in Phoenix, but I wasn’t happy. You see, since I was in the full Peter Pan outfit (complete with little green hat), I thought I could fly. I jumped up a few times and skinned my knee on the second try. My father told me I would hurt myself and to stop. I erupted in tears. “But daddy! I should fly! I’m Peter Pan!” Then, my dad told me to shut my eyes and to think of “Any happy little thought.” So, I did, and after instructing me to keep my eyes closed, my father lifted me up and turned around. I was flying! I laughed and laughed, and after that I tapped the doorbells of every house on the block with a huge smile on my face.
What a wonderful memory. I cherish it to this day.
Have an enchanting Halloween all!
