Jason in Manoa

Jason is an energetic young 8 y.o. who recently moved into a house with his parents. Like any other 8 y.o., adjusting to a new home and new neighborhood took some getting used to. One day, Jason's mom observes her son talking to himself in the mirror. For about a week, she notices this same peculiar behavior and realizes he is creating his own imaginary friend to keep him company. So, she decides to ask him who he is talking to. Jason, looking at the mirror and then back to her mom's face, replies, "I'm talking to an old man." Surprised as to why Jason would have an imaginary friend way older than him, she ask him more questions.
Jason begins to explain to her that the old man used to live in the house until, one day, the old man was buried by his daughter in the backyard. Everyone in the neighborhood thought he had simply passed away.......

The photograph was taken in Manoa, parts of the story is based on a true event in Hawai'i. Which part? I will let you decide. Happy Halloween. =)

I suddenly feel chilly... Probably it's not a good idea to read your story home alone at night by a wind-leaking window...

Impressionnant, de quoi faire des cauchemars cette nuit. Jason a l'air d'avoir beaucoup d'imagination.

Impressing, what to make nightmares this night. Jason seems to have much imagination.

That is a fantastic story and accompanying shot. I have 2 sons who would love to give our garden a go like this should i let them, but Halloween is not a holiday here, although you see more and more of it.

I also read about the underwear Ironman race. My husband still has dreams of doing this race (normally clothed :)one day but as time passes by his chances are diminishing fast. I let him dream though.

Are you going thru a spooke phase in preparation for Halloween? Cool picture!

I believe that the part about the old man buried by his daughter is true, but the part about Jason isn't!

I can't believe what great lengths people go to for Halloween in the US - and in Hawaii too apparently !!! It really hasn't caught on in Australia at all; if kids go trick or treating, no one will have sweets ready for them...
