Weird scenes inside the goldmine...
Looking back at my notes last week it seems that maybe my subconscious mind was trying to tell me something I didn't want to know. The visions I had in my sleep all relate in some way to the strange goings on I encountered in Casadaga. Read the new entry in the Freakopedia and see if you don't agree with me. Maybe my subconscious is a lot smarter than I give it credit for.
The scariest thing was seeing the symbol from my dreams in front of one Psychic's house. I did go inside and talk to the guy but I don't really wanna get into what he told me. (It's kinda personal ya know?) Still that gave me quite a jolt.
Now I've read the messages on the discussion board about how some of you think I might be some sort of psychic. I don't even wanna think about that. I've got enough on my plate with just keeping this place going and skirting the responsibilities of a normal life. The last thing I need is to be blessed with some kind of paranormal gift. If there was a Barnes that would have loved to have been psychic it's my brother. He's the one that would have embraced it with open arms. Hell, he would have made himself a case study and wrote detailed notes about his every waking thought. As for me, I 'm just happy to be able to figure out what my conscious mind is doing, never mind my subconscious.
Still those dreams do seem to have meant something. But right now I don't wanna think about it. I'm convinced that tonight I will sleep like a baby and I'm about ready to give it a go. No parties for me boys and girls. I'm all tuckered out.
