What terrified me will terrify others;
and I need only describe the spectre
which had haunted my midnight pillow.

Porte Musings:

August 30th, Mary Shelley’s Birthday is a day to remember Frankenstein Day and nightmares. May all your villagers be welcoming instead of waiting outside your door to execute you. Why not get some popcorn and watch an old Frankenstein movie or better still read the book.

Of all the nightmares of the world, on our TV screens are images of Afghan’s wanting to flee Afghanistan as the Taliban are overrunning the country. Today is also a day set aside as International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances. A day to remember all the kidnapped victims and those taken hostage.

Along the same vein of horrors today is also set aside as National Grief Awareness Day. Take time to heal and grieve.

Part of the healing process might include a long walk on one of the many beautiful beaches, sand, wind and waves as you celebrate National Beach Day.

Frankenstein Day

International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances


Dr. Frankenstein has become one of the most well known fictional mad scientists the world over. His creation, the monster of Frankenstein, is one of the favorites at Halloween. The type of thing nightmares are made of or should I say incites nightmares? Since we’re still limited in our movements due to COVID-19 restrictions, why not celebrate Frankenstein day either with the book or one of the many films?
