With Halloween, Samhain and The Day of the Dead so very close at hand, I felt that an otherworldly sort of word would be quite fitting and eldritch is a rather delightful word with Old English/Scottish origins (both of which are deliciously filled with otherworldly history, myths and lore). May your day be filled with all sorts of pleasant, eldritch occurrences – and for those who are being affected by Sandy I hope that you and your dear ones are safe and secure!
“Do not expect again a phoenix hour, The triple-towered sky, the dove complaining, Sudden the rain of gold and heart’s first ease Traced under trees by the eldritch light of sundown.” – Cecil Day-Lewis ‘From Feathers to Iron’.
An eldritch scream filled the still night air and my awareness of the thinning veil between worlds grew stronger…
Namaste ~ Ella

In relation to 80s cartoon shows that is. 😉
