Last Thursday the Ladies of Lafayette's Secret Society came together for a night of spook-tacular magic hosted by Miss June, who dropped off our secret invites to each of us. Even the invite was glowing with magic, the front was a vintage seance image of Edgar Allen Poe, a Silent Film Actress and other Icons of that error, all dressed to the eclectic hilt of glamor and filling on watchers with curiosity and intrigue.
Thursday's group was Karen, Noreen, Joyce, Joan, Me, and our host June, with special guest ghost hunter, Brian, who came to meet each of us. June had homemade lasagna, baked artichoke squares, wine and The Queen's Cherry Jubilee Royal Cake waiting for us, complete with dozens of glowing candles and lanterns to set the mood, all inside the historic 150 year old building which has tons of history and folklore surrounding it.
It was a night filled with absolute magic, a little Halloween for ourselves, each of us needing this night in more ways then one. Whether you believe there is an afterlife or a skeptic of it or not, whether you are filled with curiosity or not, understanding ghosts and historical folklore, just know magic is everywhere, each of us who attended left with that and much more.
I know my Grandfather, Grandmother (her birthday is Halloween) and family is watching over me, learned of the history and afterlife at Piddlestixs, and more, we all left with a special bond, laughter, memories and love.
We have now entered a new month, a new day, new night and new adventure in November. I hope this months brings us all love, luck, good health and prosperity.
Magic and Joy,
