Operative Artistry

September 9, 2016

Super late on this one (noticing a trend yet?), but I promised I would post that creepy sketch from the dream entries, so here it is:




So, I don’t know if you can tell, but the outline of the eyes? Those are words. I can’t quite make it all out — this dude had some atrocious handwriting. Or, ya know, he was losing his mind, in which case penmanship probably isn’t your top priority. But the bits and pieces I’ve been able to decipher all seem to relate to eyes and seeing and truth. Given the eye imagery, perhaps that’s not all that surprising. And though all the scratching around it may look random, it’s not all a bunch of scribbles. If you look close, you can see he’s written “see” over and over and over again.

I spent some time wondering what this might have been about — you know, outside of him completely losing his shit — and I kept thinking about the scratching he’d heard and then felt inside his head. Maybe whatever that sensation was made it to his eyes? Then again, maybe his dreams became more clear, and he was seeing something for the first time.

Or he was just unhinged.

Also, I’ve kept on searching for the St. Louis families with no luck. And by no luck, I mean I found more dead people, but that’s about it. There’s more to it than that… but I’ll explain more on Sunday’s episode. In the meantime, here are the folks I’m still looking for:

  1. Thomas and Linda Nettles
  2. Anthony and Kate Baker
  3. Gail and Peter Ramirez
  4. Judy and Dale Cook
  5. Randall and Theresa Olson
  6. Claire and John Morales

Oh, and one more thing before I go: YOU’RE GETTING A SECOND EPISODE THIS WEEK. I know, I’m awesome. It was more a function of necessity than love though, so don’t feel too flattered.


And as a bit of a tease for the entry we’ll be covering, here’s the sketch that accompanied it:




Dude was a seriously talented artist, huh? Then again, he did have a lot of time to work on it. You’ll understand soon.
