Drifting by Whit Andrews

Things I Noticed at the Cemetery Today
  • A sort of fluttery feeling in my stomach
  • Instant pressure around my temples and forehead
  • Sense of calm
  • A black butterfly
  • Pulls towards certain graves
  • A really strong ‘No’ from a cluster of graves when I was asking permission to collect graveyard dirt from their site. It wasn’t a “Go Away” sort of no, more like a “Not Now”. So I chose a different spot a few yards away, and I shit you not, less than 5 minutes later a car drives by and parks right in front of the site I was observing and stays there for a good 5 minutes.
  • Tons of yellow Black-Eyed Susan’s
  • This really pretty grave that looked like a tree
  • A really happy feeling when I invited the spirits to walk with me through the grounds.
  • Sense of surprise after leaving offerings at old and forgotten graves.
