". . . waking from a troubled dream. . "
"We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream. . . it may be so at the moment of death."
~~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
Since part of what we sell at the Hawthorne is a night's sleep, it is not unusual that we might see a quotation from our namesake about waking from a dream as a topic of a blog post.
Some of our guests come here to experience a bit of the paranormal. They visit our local psychics, go on ghost tours walking through the city at dusk, ask for haunted rooms, and write about their experiences in our bed and breakfast's guest books.
Some people just come to have a good time at our annual Halloween bash. This year our theme is "There's no escape." Have you bought your tickets yet? If not, you can do so on-line at www.ticketweb.com .
Have you had an other-worldly experience at the Hawthorne Hotel? I'd love for you to write to me through this blog to tell us about it. Or, if you don't want a public post of it, you can email me at info@HawthorneHotel.com.
I look forward to hearing from you.
