All about me and my world!

In Washington Irving's story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," Ichabod Crane attends an autumnal harvest feast, where he listens to local townspeople recounting ghost stories. Later that night, on his fateful ride home, he encounters the Headless Horseman. The ending of the story is left open to interpretation: Is the Headless Horseman a ghoulish spirit, or is it actually Crane's rival in love, dressed in disguise and further exaggerated by Crane's haunted, overactive imagination? It's your blog, have fun.
The Headless Horseman could have been a manifestation of Crane's guilt over not being man enough to stand up to Crane to win the lady he loved. In other words, the Horseman was the brave side of Crane, trying to get him to man up. Just a thought....

Pine, oak, cedar, birch, aspen, fir, maple. Joshua, jacaranda, palm. There are thousands of species of trees in the world; some are found in many regions and some in only one place. There are trees that grow fruits and nuts; there are desert trees and tropical trees but there is only one special one. Weave us a story about the one in your life.
I can't really come up with a story about a tree, but in my book, Bloodshed on the Setting Sun, I have a scene where there is a tree with a huge significance to it. It was the tree that was a portal from the Faerie realm to Deacon, Mississippi. It was how both Queen Morganna and Cydia got to Deacon and met Lucifier. In a nutshell, that tree caused a whole lot of trouble between mother and daughter.
Today was boring. I didn't do much, but clean a church and use a leaf blower to blow leaves off a walkway and driveway. I did receive a nice skin care sample kit from a company out of Australia called Luxe Botanics. I plan on including it in my review video on Tuesday. I'm up to 39 subscribers on my YouTube channel. I think I may do a giveaway when I reach 100 subscribers. I've seen that work for many of the other YouTubers to increase subscribers.
Here's a video for a song that mention trees. Y'all should watch it!
Bye for now!
