Black-Eyed Knocker
By Stephen Wagner, Guide

I don't know if this is paranormal, honestly. I don't know what to call this, but it is the most significant thing that has happened to me and I will never forget it. I live in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. I am 34 years old and teach World History at a local school. This event happened to me on a Saturday evening, sometime in September in 2004.

I had been home for most of the day trying to fix the water heater. It's that time of day where it is starting to get dark outside. As I was getting ready to give up with the water heater, I heard a knock on the door. Just a single knock. I wasn't sure what it was, but I ignored it. About 30 seconds later, I heard another knock. I stood up and walked over to the door. For some reason, I was feeling very uneasy. My heart started to beat very hard and it was all I could hear at this point.

I decided to take a look out the window to see what was going on. I saw a middle-aged woman standing on the sidewalk looking toward my house. I felt like I knew her, thinking she was a neighbor of mine. The beating of my heart had gone down and I felt normal again. I went to the door and opened it to see what was the matter.

As I opened the door, the woman walked toward my house and stopped about 6 feet in front of me. As I looked into her eyes, it was as if nothing was there. I could not form a thought, I could not perceive the rest of the world. It was as if nothing existed and I was no longer in control of my body. I was overrun with fear. My body felt numb. I felt like I was in a shell. I could see nothing in her eyes, no emotion, no life; they were just black. There were no whites to her eyes, just darkness.

As I stood there completely in shock, not able to move, she said, "Let me in." Her voice was normal, but as soon as she said this, the whole world turned black. I felt like I was dying just being around her. I quickly shut the door and locked it. I was too terrified to even look out the window. I have never seen this person again, but day today I can feel her. I can feel her presence. It's like I am no longer a part of my body when I feel her. I go into a panic mode, as if I am about to die. I have also seen her in my dreams since then. Most nights are like fighting a force in my dreams, trying to get away from my own mind. It's as if she has taken over. It's as if the moment I opened the door, she gained access to me.

You can leave a haunted house, but you can't leave a haunted body. But then again, I don't know what she is.


and dani sent me this picture.
it's called a zonkey.

bittersweet feelings over the cumulation of these months of hard work with the presentation of alice in wonderland this weekend; exhausted and glad that it'll be over, sad to be saying goodbye to so many good new friends and people that i've worked so closely with these past few months.
i'll have some pictures from the performances next week.

have a great weekend!
smell ya later!

Again, Todd & Co., break a leg.

The Zonkey picture is very cute, but my untrained eye thinks there may be a little photoshop involved as the Donkey casts a longer shadow than the Zonkey.

Looks like a donkey that's gone Goth and put on some striped stockings. Daddy Zebra looks a little concerned about his baby's lifestyle choice. Mommy Donkey is supportive, telling Zonkers that it's her life and she'll still love her, no matter what. Even if she starts throwing weird shadows.
