I had heard from my mom and her friends that they played with a Chinese ouiji board back in China many years ago when they were young and silly. I had her recount her experiences in great detail and reconstruct the exact Chinese ouiji board that they used which I wrote into the seance scene in The Beijing Ghosts, my third book. Rather than having hundreds of Chinese characters, they wrote words like 'man', 'woman', 'love', 'hate' and used a tea cup as the indicator. For the sake of English readership, I added the 26 letters of the American alphabet around the Chinese words. In reality, spirits do not speak in languages and have no barriers. Word of caution - don't play ouji in your own home.

I am thankful that I am able to wake up every morning to make my next 24 hours the best that it can be no matter what is happening. Life is in our own hands and we are blessed with that choice to fill it with abundance and joy. Make the best of life and everything it has to offer! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
