It is time again for “If These Walls Could Talk.” In honor of Halloween later this month, I decided to share a picture of a house which certainly looks as though it could be haunted.
This appears to have been a large, lovely home at one time. But unfortunately, it hasn’t been that for years. It has definitely fallen on hard times. Now, I think we are more likely to see a ghost flitting in and out the windows than to see a corporeal human walking in the front door.
What sort of ghosts do you think would live here? When I look at this picture, I hear children laughing as they run through the halls. I visualize a family gathering around a large table to share the events of their day while they eat supper. I would like to think any spirits present are happy residuals of the families who once lived here.
Even though it is overgrown and barely standing, there is still something about this house which to me is more hopeful than haunted. I get the sense this house is wishing someone would rescue it from its current disrepair and make it a happy home again.
What do you see when you look at this house? Does it speak to you, or is it too far gone for that? I am wondering what you think this house would say, If These Walls Could Talk.
If you want to see some of the previous buildings used, you can find earlier blogs on my website. Also, if you have any suggestions for future buildings to blog about, I would love to hear from you. http://www.karenmarcam.com/contact.html
