'Objects have lives... they are witnesses...' A really good listen...
The weather is oh so gloomy, luckily I have the day off work as my internship #2 boss is on a skiing holiday (yes I'm jealous.) I am taking the opportunity to catch up on paper work, blogging, ebaying and thinking about getting my car MOTed.
In the meantime, I have taken cue from the rainy weather to listen to this ghostly, creepy nostalgic story of The House on Loon Lake.
It's about a couple of kids who stumble across a derelict house and decide to explore it; finding it in a mysterious state not touched for 50years. A wallet, eye-glasses, withered roses, canned food, just-washed dishes (and stranger items such as a burnt doll) - all the general artefacts of family life - could be found inside.
The story tells of how the friends spent the rest of lives discovering the mysteries of the abandoned house. If you're a fan of nostalgia, melancholy and mysteries which make your hands and heart tingle then I highly recommend listening to this, preferably in a darkened room with a friend. It's an amazing story.
