Observation for Now

There was a star danced, and under that I was born.

Mothman Still Puzzles

As you probably know, the 2002 film The Mothman Prophecies was "based on true events" that happened in 1967 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia.

John Keel, who was a newspaperman at the time, investigated the reports of a strange flying creature and wrote a book from which the movie arose.

The film's character called Alexander Leek, a writer interviewed by Richard Gere's John Klein, more or less represents Keel's viewpoint -- the more attention you pay to the paranormal, the more attention it may pay to you.

And you shouldn't really desire that.

Here are two books by Jeff Wamsley, one of the original witnesses from 1967.
Oftentimes, investigations into the Great Garuda (as Keel called it -- look it up!) veer off into other lands of fancy.

A case in point is any of the series of books entitled The Mothman's Photographer.

See you again soon, and stay tuned for Blog-o-Ween, with a post-a-day in October!
