Friday Philosophy…Banshee

Halloween is nearly upon us! So, today’s topic is the banshee. What is it, really?

The banshee comes from the Irish. It’s a female spirit, that is thought to be a sign of death. Basically, she’s a really bad omen. For all of those days I say I’m screaming like a banshee, I’m starting to reassess that statement: my screaming is nowhere near that intense.

“Banshee. Beauty. And, well, badass. He always knew she had it in her.” ~ Erin Kellison

“I’m in a wild mood tonight. I want to go dance in the foam. I hear the banshees calling.”
~ Raymond Chandler

“Far, far away, something made a single ghostly howl, like a banshee in the dark.” ~ Lucy Christopher

“Let the vampire’s creaking wing/ Hide the stars while banshees sing/ Let the ghouls gorge all night long/ Dreams will keep you safe and strong.” ~ Thomas Pynchon

Spooky dreams, and blessings…

Never give up. Unless, of course, the banshees come for you. (Cue evil laugh.)
