9/18/07 'NIGHT DEMON COMPROMISE'

SURELY YOU REMEMBER MY STORY OF MY DEALINGS WITH THE NIGHT DEMONS THAT VISIT ME EVERY NIGHT JUST AFTER SUNDOWN--THEY ACTUALLY DO NO HARM EXCEPT TO MAKE AN EFFORT TO KEEP ME FROM SLEEPING AND DEPRESS ME---AND I AM SURE THEY HAVE OTHER PLANS THAT I WILL NEVER KNOW ABOUT--

EACH TIME I GET UP FROM THE BED AT NITE--I TURN ON A FLASHLITE--THIS MAKES THE NITE DEMONS 'RUN' OR CHANGE INTO A SMALL DOT THE COLOR OF WHATEVER THEY ARE ON---ONE NITE I DECIDED TO NOT TURN ON THE FLASHLITE--ABOUT 6 FEET AHEAD OF ME--I SAW A VERY SMALL BLINKING LIGHT ON THE FLOOR--SORTA LIKE THE EYES OF A SPIDER THAT YOU CAN SEE AT NITE ON THE GROUND WITH A FLASHLITE--BUT THIS SMALL BRIGHT LIGHT WAS BLINKING -NOT AT REGULAR INTERVALS--BUT AS IF IT WERE MORSE CODE--DOTS AND DASHES--I DID KNOW HOW TO READ MORSE CODE SO I DID MY USUALL THING WITH THE FLASHLITE AND MOVED ON--

I WENT TO A PROFESSIONAL AND IN 3 MONTHS I WAS PRETTY GOOD AT SENDING AND RECEIVING MORSE CODE--SO NOW FOR THE EXPERIEMENT--THIS NIGHT I DID NOT TURN MY FLASHLITE ON AND SURE ENOUGH I BEGAN TO SEE THE TINY FLASHING LIGHT--NOW I WAS ABLE TO READ THE MESSAGE--THE NIGHT DEMON TOLD ME HE WANTED TO MAKE A COMPROMISE WITH ME--I HAD PUT BLACK TAPE OVER MY FLASHLITE AND PUT A SMALL HOLE IN THIS TAPE AND NOW I HAD A SMALL BEAM OF LIGHT THAT I COULD USE TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE NIGHT DEMON--

I ASSURED THE NIGHT DEMON WE COULD MAKE A DEAL--THE NIGHT DEMON TOLD ME MY FLASHLITE WAS DESTROYING TOO MANY OF HIS COMPANIONS--HE PROMISED ME HE OR HIS FRIENDS WOULD NOT BOTHER ME OR MY WIFE--IF I WOULD JUST STOP USING THAT STRONG FLASHLITE WHEN I GOT OUT OF BED--I IMMEDIATELY SAID THAT I WOULD DO AS HE WISHED--THERE WERE ENOUGH NITE LITES IN OTHER ROOMS FOR ME TO SEE TO GET AROUND SAFELY--BETTER FOR THEM AND BETTER FOR ME--CAN'T BEAT A COMPROMISE LIKE THAT--SLEEP CAME EASY FOR ME AFTER THIS AGREEMENT--SUNSET WAS NOW A HAPPY TIME FOR ME---

AS I HAVE SAID -THE NIGHT DEMONS HAD PLENTY TO DO WITHOUT BOTHERING ME--THE SUN SETS NOW AND I AM AT EASE--LOTS OF GOOD CAN BE DONE WITH HONEST COMMUNICATION--THIS EVENT PROVES THAT--TRY IT SOME TIME--
