Going to California


"Why didn't you call me that you were back in town - err - on earth?"

"I didn't think you'd care."

"What do you mean? I didn't care?"

"Well, I...just didn't."

"Henri, what did your therapist tell you? Stop being so down on yourself; of course, I cared. You're my character, you know?"

"Actually, if you want to be technical, mon ami, I'm Heide's character. You've gone on to other things, like forcing Henri to date beautiful American women. You should be ashamed."

"They were authors, Henri. Strictly professional."

"They were hot, mon ami, and you know what that does to Henri's ecoplasm. I couldn't have been more watered down than the Wicked Witch of the West."

"Henri, you're so silly. Speaking of beautiful American women..."

"Oh, no you don't. You're not going to talk me into traveling to some unforsaken location to interview some beautiful wild thing waiting for Henri to sweep her off her feet. Oh, no you don't. I'm too wise and worldly for that, mon ami."

"Well, I guess I won't tell you then..."

"You get pleasure in teasing Henri, don't you? Don't you get enough nookie from that poker-playing young thing you got shacked up with you?"


"Just kidding you. Can't you take a joke anymore? Things have sure changed since I was back on earth. I guess you're going to say there's a woman running for President, aren't you? Haha...don't make me laugh."


"Lalalalala...I can't heeeeear you...lalalala...."

"How would you like to go to California?"


"Yes, her name is Deborah Woehr. She's on tour in March and she lives in California and she wants you to interview her."

"She asked for me?"

"Oh, yeah, she said, 'Where's that handsome spirit that interviews all the bestselling authors and why can't I have him, too?'"

"She didn't say that."

"Oh, sure, she did! And, look, Henri, she wrote a ghostie book, too. It's called Prosperity: A Ghost Story!"
"A love story?"
"A ghost story, Henri. If you want to find out all about her, go to"
"Why does everything have to be about the Internet with you, mon ami? How about I fly out and find person?
"That's what I've been trying to get you to do, Henri! She tours in February, so you've got plenty of time. Hey, where are you going?"
"Mon ami, I'm going to California now...for research, you understand. I've got to walk those bikini-clad beaches to really get in the mood for this, you know?"
"Henri, you're going to get in trouble. I just feel it. Henri? Henri?"

I'm baaack...

Good news for you Henri fans. Henri is back in town!

It took me a few times in therapy to realize that just because my book is no longer available, it's no reason not to keep on living, now is there? Of course, Henri does his living in the post-mortem style, but that's neither here nor there, is it?

To catch up, therapy was a blast. I met...a nice young female (don't tell Juicy!) who was in there for the very same thing I was. In fact, you would be amazed at this place. It's hard to tell you where it was because mortals have a different set of rules they play where geography is concerned, but let me tell you, it's not at all like therapy for mortals.

This, actually, is a place where spirits go to detox from earthly wants. It's for spirits who stay on earth too long and start feeling they are mortals, not that it's a bad thing, mind you, but we spirits have to stay non-grounded, if youknowwhattamean.

They finally released me last Sunday and I am allowed to come back for short visits. So, during this time, I will be posting on my blog and catching up with my friends and trying to find Juicy, who I think has slipped to another realm. Has anyone felt her around?

No problem. Once she senses I'm back on earth, she'll find me.

Okay, lots to do...oh, reminder, I haven't taken my book info off the blog because Henri is STILL a writer and loves his book even thought you can't order it anymore because the wretched publisher disappeared...but...therapist tells Henri to forget that and go on, so go on I must.

Nice to be back and I hope to visit all of you soon!
