…Plus a special guest sharing some frightening fears with us on Halloween!
So what scares you? Last night I went to see Sleep No More for the first time, and it was wild and wonderful and delightful. I expected to be scared, but I wasn’t. (I think because a friend helped me know what to expect… And it wasn’t pitch-dark, so I could see where I was going. I am kind of afraid of absolute darkness.) Highly recommended if you haven’t gone yet.
To be safe, I’m being careful not to watch any horror movies before I head up to the Millay Colony, though, because I have a very active imagination.
