"Nope"

 On 6 Degrees of John Keel, Kendra Maurer writes about an experience she had as a teenager while on a school camping trip in The Wandering Canoe.  She references Mothman, though the post isn't about Mothman, and the excellent Where the Footprints End.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 With all our hopeful energy assuming 2021 has to be better, maybe it will be.

Mothman Abstract

 On my blog The Orange Orb you can see some of art work, also on Facebook. I bought myself a set of Neocolor crayons -- they are great to play with! Experimenting with abstract creations, and wanting to do a Mothman piece, I came up with this. Just a sketch, ideas, and getting used to the materials. Hopefully I will create a Mothman inspired piece soon.

Colvin: Flying Saucer to the Center of Your Mind

My copy of Andrew Colvin's book arrived today. Excited to start reading it. And, I admit I am not being humble, surprised and pleased to read that my name was included in his acknowledgements.

I have my pens, highlighters and sticky notes at the ready! (I am a nerd.).

Mothman Threads . . .

Haven't been blogging much lately -- down with pneumonia these past weeks. Mostly on my Orange Orb blog on Wordpress. Other than that, not much.

Seems Mothman is seemingly appearing elsewhere. Chicago, for one.

And the excellent series Hellier series (Greg and Dana Newkirk) finds connections to Mothman, even though they were investigating strange goblin like happenings in Kentucky.

As mentioned in Hellier, I just ordered Andrew Colvin's book about John Keel: Flying Saucer to the Center of Your Mind. Should arrive tomorrow!

Mothman, by Thor

Updated...

Always intrigued by the dreaming mind.

I'm visiting a parent of one of the elementary students to discuss what's going on in the school. Although, this parent seems more like the grandmother, closer to my age.

I'm in her living room, and instead of talking about her kid, she shows me her library. She is so happy and proud! She has four books, all written by Thor something (don't recall the last name) and they're all about Mothman. Thick, heavy hardcover books. One of the things so special about the books, she tells me, is that many of the pages are folded into threes, and you have to pull them out very carefully. Also -- and this is very important -- refold them in a specific way. This mother/grandparent (Margaret something) tells me we've all been folding pages into thirds the wrong way.  
I tell her my theories about UFOs, and Mothman -- how I am convinced that all of it exists. There really is a Mothman, entities, aliens, ghosts, UFOs, and on and on, and there are some people who are well aware of that and manipulate this other reality, or concurrent reality, for their own agendas.  
I am very impressed, and a little disappointed in myself that I've never heard of this Thor person. I tell her it's serendipity that we've met, and tell her about myself. She doesn't seem impressed however, in fact, she steps back a little. I feel like she thinks I'm bragging. I wasn't, just very excited to meet a fellow Mothman paranormal Fortean nerd, like myself. So I encourage her and tell her how impressed I am with her library and I'd like to meet with her to talk about these things. But she doesn't seem to want to do that.

Thor? Mothman? Three folds? Seems like that should mean something!

Mothman, Parachutes, and More . . .

Lots of links to  Mothy news, thanks to The Anomalist.

We have Nick Redfern on the "parachute" explanation:

Mothman: Were Parachutes and Jet Packs Responsible? | Mysterious Universe (Nick Redfern)

Scroll down in same section at The Anomalist for more links related to Mothman.

Related to Redfern's parachute article, in 2014 I commented on Soldier of Fortune's article on parachutes mistaken for Mothman. As I wrote back then, "yeah, right."
