11/20/07 'STILL FRIENDS'

I HAVE 24 OF MY PAINTINGS HANGING ON THE EAST WALL OF OUR KITCHEN--THESE ARE SMALL IN SIZE--PERHAPS 7 BY 8 INCHES--PAINTINGS OF ALL SORTS --DONE ON CEREAL BOX CARDBOARD ETC.--MOST OF THEM DONE IN A CRUDE WAY--THE ONLY WAY I CAN PAINT--PEOPLE IN THE KNOW SAY ANY PAINTING IS A GOOD ONE--I HAVE DOUBTS ABOUT THIS--

I SEE THESE PAINTINGS EVERY DAY --BUT THIS MORNING THEY WERE ALL STILL THERE BUT ALL REARRANGED--NO ONE HERE BUT MY WIFE AND I---THE NEXT MORNING THEY WERE ALL BACK IN THEIR USUAL PLACES--ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE UNEXPLAINED THINGS THAT SEEM TO FOLLOW ME AROUND--

SO I HAD AN IDEA--I WOULD PAINT ANOTHER STRANGE PAINTING AND HANG IT WITH THE OTHER 24 AND SEE IF PERHAPS I COULD 'CATCH' WHAT WAS HAPPENING--PERHAPS THE 'CHANGER' WOULD NOTICE THIS NEW PAINTING AND SEND A MESSAGE OF SORTS BY THE LOCATION OF THIS NEW PAINTING--I PLACED THE NEW PAINTING IN THE TOP LEFT CORNER OF THE PAINTINGS--

THE NEXT MORNING THE NEW PAINTING WAS IN THE SECOND ROW DOWN--AND NOW I REMEMBERED I HAD PAINTED WHAT I CALLED A 'NIGHT DEMON'--NOW THIS 'NIGHT DEMON' PAINTING WAS IN THE TOP LEFT CORNER OF THE PAINTINGS AND MY NEW PAINTING WAS NOW IN THE SPOT WHERE THE 'NIGHT DEMON' PAINTING WAS---

NO DOUBT NOW --I HAD MADE FRIENDS WITH THE NITE DEMONS SOME TIME BACK AND HAD COMMUNICATED WITH THEM WITH A FLASHLITE AND MORSE CODE--THEY HAD COME BACK TO VISIT ME -THEIR OLD FRIEND ---BUT COMMUNICATED IN A DIFFERENT WAY BY CHANGING THE ARRANGEMENT OF MY PAINTINGS--

IT WAS SIMPLE NOW --MY NITE DEMONS HAD COME BACK TO VISIT ME --AND THEY WOULD LET ME KNOW THEY WERE STILL MY FRIENDS--SIMPLY BY CHANGING THE POSITIONS OF THE PAINTINGS--I RESTED WELL THE NEXT NITE AND THE PAINTINGS THE NEXT MORNING WERE ALL LOCATED WHERE THEY WERE THE DAY BEFORE--MY NEW PAINTING IN THE TOP LEFT CORNER--

WHAT A THRILL I FIND WHEN I CAN COMMUNICATE WITH THE 'UNKNOWN'--IT DOES NOT GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS--

I KNOW THERE WILL BE OTHER TIMES--AND I LOOK FORWARD ANXIOUSLY FOR 'THOSE TIMES'--I WILL SEND A COPY WITH THIS STORY--OF THE NEW PAINTING I USED TO FIND MY FRIENDS AGAIN--
