On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

The things we do for "luck"

Do you do anything for luck?

For example: Throwing spilt salt over your shoulder. Saying, "good morning" to magpies. Avoiding walking under ladders? Throwing coins into plane engines .... What?

    Poor, grandma.
    But they came to their destination safely, right? :D
    Why nine coins? Was it her lucky number?
    To be honest, I do avoiding walking under ladders because it looks so dangerous there under.

    I'd forgotten I should say 'Morning' to magpies. Like @april I avoid walking under ladders simply out of safety concerns. I never waste salt by throwing it anywhere other than on my food.
