    1. I visited Madrid today, the energy in this ghost town is overwhelming. I was in the Mine Shaft Tavern, their was a male inity behind the bar, near the end, closest to the men’ s bathroom, he was a big, burly man. I told the little bartender. She wasn’t surprised at all. I am a light worker(physic)/medium. I also felt my spiritual presents there, an Indian woman and a women crying.

    2. I fell down the Rio Grande from Taos and landed in the Mineshaft Tavern in Madrid. It was a Friday night in November.and I was famished but the kitchen had just closed.Several stouts served as dinner. As the band played on I moved to the bar to watch the dancers. It was then that I saw him, he wasn’t cold yet, I knew he’d come back. He left so harshly scarring the town. I plan to return and release him.

    3. There were several entities through this town. All were dressed in the clothing of the past. They watch and hide like they do not know what to think of us. Glimpses of a woman possibly a prostitute darts between buildings. A man with a derby hat follows us through town. A big man in and out of the tavern. Possibly a railroad worker or miner. I enjoyed them all and they were not trying to scare us.
