A little over a year ago, I was driving through the Grapevine along I-5 during the evening twilight, when I pulled over to check into a motel. I was standing in the parking lot outside of my room when I took the above picture. I stood there for a while believing something would appear, but ... nothing did. Then I decided I would walk into the field later that night, because I was sure there would be a sighting of something, but I only made it as far out as twenty steps before I ran back to my room. Needless to say, my paranormal investigation skills are not that impressive.
A few days that night, I published the first issue of Phantom Kangaroo, and now, 12 issues later, a year away from this field, and no more closer to solving an X-file, the memory attached to the picture is still of something very eerie, and I think all I can really hope for is that it stays like that forever.
