    Strange Strangers

    Yeah. I`ve had them too. I explain to them, how it makes me feel, via the medium of interpretive dance. They always seem to get the message and leave me alone.

    Did She Really Confirm My Hallucination?

    I sometimes get the faces too. I live in a house with a large cemetery just beyond the front garden and always wondered if it could be the faces of the people buried there coming for a visit. I always get up and make a cuppa if I get an angry/evil stare.
