The Other Side of Life

31 05 2012

In one of my previous posts I talked about how sometimes you have to be taken completely out of your environment for growth to happen. Key West is one of those places you can do something totally different than anything else you have done in your life and make some money doing it.

When I first got here I fell in with a Ghost Tour that got started up by a local tour company and after a year I found myself as the Operations Manager for the tour.

Below you will find some obligatory pictures of how I earn my living. We dress up as dead people from Key West’s past and tell folks ghost stories as they go through town. Half way through we bring them inside an old civil war era fort to meet our local legend Robert the Doll, who is said to be cursed or enchanted. Many of my friends who have come to visit have gone on it and have had a blast. We work hard but we have a lot of fun.

I also confess I get no end of surprised looks when I tell the good people on the Diocese what I do for a living…and I am highly amused each and every time.

Pictures from Pentecost

Here are some photos from our Pentecost service at St Peters which have been posted to Facebook. If any of the Key West readers are interested in what we do please stop by our service at 10am on Sunday mornings. St Peters Facebook page is just about up and running so expect friend invitations soon.

Pentecost at St Peters

We were all decked out in our best red today!

The service was lovely as always. More pictures to come.

I think that is enough biography …

So that gives a pretty good idea of what I have been up to since I have fallen off the face of the blogosphere … Which is more than most would want to know, I am sure.

With it being a holiday weekend, I think I will poke my head in on some folks I haven’t visited in a while (and you know who you are!) and hopefully will get around to posting a few pictures of St. Peters being decked out for Pentecost Sunday, and some Ghost Tour pictures for the benefit of those who haven’t been subjected to it.

For the time being at least, I still have most of my mornings free since I work nights, so really there is no excuse as to why I can’t blog.
