I had been aggravated for several months by noise from a neighbor. On October 14, 2020, a boisterous backyard gathering dispersed shortly after 10 p.m. but my anxiety kept me awake until about 4 a.m.

At approximately 5:15 I was awakened by a light. To my left, what had been a shuttered window was now a blank wall softly lit with a slight yellowish tinge, as if illuminated by candlelight. Then, near the top of the wall, appeared the living head of a monster, like a cathedral gargoyle. The beastly head was replaced by another after a couple of seconds, then followed by another. This happened five or six times. One head had glowing eyes. Another appeared to be a cross between a man and a lion. Then the heads disappeared.

I turned to my right to turn on a light and make notes. When I looked back, the shuttered windows had returned.

While this vision might be related to my anxiety, this seems to be a spectacular display for something as mundane as a noisy neighbor. Perhaps the event released demons from my subconscious. Did I purge beasts from my mind only to release them into the world?

I looked up gargoyles on Wikipedia. One section noted “gargoyles are said to protect what they guard, such as a church, from any evil or harmful spirits” but another passage said “The primary use of the gargoyle was to illustrate evil through the form of the gargoyle.”

This was not my first time I had been awakened by an illuminated vision, but that is another story.

Gargoyles are artsy gutter spouts.

Great coffee table book is "nightmares in the sky". Pics by F Stop Fitzgerald, text by Stephen King.

Um... what were you making notes about?
To record what I had just seen and the time. There is a clock, a landline phone, a notepad and a pen on a nightstand next to my bed. There is also a battery-operated light on a headboard shelf behind my pillows.

I had to ask because, well, it I woke to see gargoyles appearing where a window used to be, my first thought would be to get the fuck outta' there...
