Hello and welcome back to the final months adventure in creative storytelling with THE WHATEVERS. I want to take this moment to thank the three original Whatevers for including me this year…Vicki Chrisman, Nathalie Kalbach and Catherine Matthews Scanlon. I'm so honored to have worked with them in past and hopefully future projects. Also a shout-out to Cuchy who has been a great supporter and author this round! Here is my take for July…enjoy!
"I spent my childhood and teen years at the Maplewood Inn in Lilydale, NY yet I knew that my time there would soon be over. I graduated from high school and would soon be heading back to NYC to attend NYU. I was excited yet afraid. Over the years I learned how to control my psychic abilities when I was around regular people. It was hard because I have a funny little spirit guide who loves to appear and disappear at the most inopportune time. I called him Waldo and I hoped that he would stay back in Lilydale because he was so silly and it was hard not to laugh at his antics.
Waldo would hide behind the curtains and jump out, hang from the chandelier, under the pillows on the couch and jump out at any time, he was very mischievous. What would I do if he followed me to college, how would I explain my abilities to my new friends, how would I explain all the estrange occurrences created by Waldo. I worried, I fretted, it was all in vain. The day I left Lilydale Waldo came to me and told me that he didn't want to leave, that he would stay at Lilydale and wait for me to return. Waldo didn't want to go to college or live in a big city, he wanted to stay behind at the Maplewood Inn and wreak havoc. And sure enough that's what he did!
