What would you say if I told you that a paranormal portal really exists? According to the owner of the land, they regularly watch Marfa Lights or Orbs from their front porch as the mysterious lights dance and glow in the pasture under the portal. And that is not the weirdest thing about the location!
My interest in the portal began when I realized that a certain place in the sky was always the opposite of whatever else was going on around it. If the majority of the sky was sunny, this hole in the sky was cloudy. And, if the rest of the sky was cloudy, this hole was sunny. I noticed it because I drove past it daily. I knew the owner of the ranch so I asked about it one day.
“Oh, that’s the least of the weird things about that place!” was the reply.
The owner began to tell me all about it. The pasture under the hole is the best pasture on the ranch…. BUT the animals will not go into it… EVER. They told me that the UPS man races to get their things delivered before dark…. because the lights chase him!
They also have a small guest house on the edge of the pasture that has been made into a workshop where the owner carves birds from wood and paints them as a hobby. One day, she had been painting for several hours, using different brushes that were being removed from and placed back into a very large mason jar filled with water. Each time she switched brushes, she placed the previous one back into the water, pushing the brush down to the bottom. Suddenly, all the brushes popped up and out of the jar and, when she looked to see what caused it, she found a huge frog completely filling the jar. It hopped out of the jar and went scooting across to….. you guessed it…. that pasture. No explanation at all!!!
I was teaching high school at the time that I became aware of the location and I had her daughters in my class. I can remember a Friday when all the girls were all chattering excitedly about the fun slumber party they had planned…. in the guest house. The next Monday, the girls came to me and told me a very interesting story. They said that they had all gathered for the party and had their pizza and their music cranked up high. Suddenly, the lights came into the guest house and dove on them as they freaked out and ran for their lives up to the main house. At first when they told me this, I thought they might be pulling their old teacher’s leg a bit. But ten years later, my own daughter-in-law told me that she had been there and witnessed the whole thing…. exactly as the girls had described it.
So…. you give that much to a fiction writer and…… The Hole in the Sky Portal One was born! If you are interested in reading the scary story I attached to the real thing, here is a link.
And, if you buy it, would you also be so kind as to leave a wonderful review for it? I would so greatly appreciate it!
Oh, BTW…. I am sworn to secrecy about the actual location of this place. Let me just say that it is in Texas somewhere…. not Marfa.
