Virtual Vacation

Doing back-to-back edits on my fiction and non-fiction books has caused the little gears in my brain to quit functioning and I find myself in desperate need of a vacation. Unfortunately, neither time nor money will allow for such frivolity. For now, I have to settle for a virtual vacation and I invite all of you to join me.

Think about it, we could go anywhere! The virtual world is literally at our fingertips. We could take a luxurious cruise to the Bahamas’s, ski the glorious mountains in Colorado, or enjoy the beaches of California. Ahhhhhh, as good as all of that sounds—it’s not for me.

The best way for me to relax and unwind is to visit places that are rumored to be haunted. I like to delve deep into the history of such places and learn all I can about them and then of course I like to see if I can find any truth behind the haunting rumors.

For this virtual vacation, we will be going to New Orleans. While many of us may wonder if ghosts really exists, I’ve heard it said that in New Orleans most people don’t even question it. Instead of asking you if you believe in ghosts, they ask if you’ve met any of their ghosts.

Even though I’ve never gotten to visit this great city, I’m intrigued with their many tales of ghosts. So get your virtual suitcases packed we will be leaving bright and early Monday morning, and don’t forget the coffee.
