As I never read the Henry James novel of The Turn of the Screw, I often wondered what the precise meaning of the title was.

It is explained in the novel. Guests at an English country house are gathered around a fire, telling ghost stories. One guest tells a story, and then a second guest speaks up: “Let’s give the screw another turn” – meaning, he wants to tell his own ghost story, which was related to him by his boyhood governess.

I posted this link of Presence of Mind as I wanted to bookmark it in my YT profile but could not. So enjoy all. There is also a print of The Innocents on YT if anyone is interested.

Haven't time to look at this yet spookie - but will later!


I would love to sit around an open fire in an old atmospheric house with a group of people telling ghost stories! Wonderful!

Some of our Chiefs believe the land belongs to them...
But that is not what The Great Spirit told me... He said No one owns the land, that the land belongs to him. We are just keepers of the land, for our children and for their childrens childen.
