Lights flicker sometimes in my apartment


loves ashes

cinders burning

these arms that once held you

like a sunset and the sea

like a sneaky thief

like the gulls flapping wings

how quickly we've ended up, strangers

just a flicker in my eye

like smoke from a fire
a child in a chair
your clever eyes
your long brown hair
as the shopkeepers closed
crowds passed us by
time has no patience
as we say goodbye

just a flicker in my eye

the rainy pavement's glimmering
like a hundred sparks gone white
and in your heart you feel it don't you
when it is all over
it is all over
it is all over

and so i teased you
to ease the air
when sadness is stinging
when there's no reply

Just a flicker in my eye
Just a flicker in my eye
Just a flicker in my eye

The Circuit Detective's Diagnostic Tree

If you have reached this page without beginning at the Start of the diagnostic tree, you may do better to start there.

A slight flicker or very brief dimming that corresponds to appliances turning on (or stormy weather) can be normal, but if it has become more pronounced, read on.

Do not continue on this page if the kind of blinking you are seeing is:

A dimming or brightening that lasts more than three or four seconds; for that see Weird light behavior Or made by an individual light bulb that has a defect. Check this by replacing that bulb. Or made by a CFL (spiral, energy-saver) bulb(s) controlled by a dimmer switch. A dimmer is incompatible with most of these fluorescents and can make them blink. Or a slight, infrequent flash a turned-off compact fluorescent (CFL, spiral) bulb may make at night if its switch is of the type that glows when off. This is normal.

The blinks I am dealing with here are due to a poor...

Jamie wants to know whether strange electrical activity could be a sign of paranormal activity. She writes:

Hi Michelle! I have a spirit here in our apartment. I have heard him speak before; I have felt his presence, and even caught an EVP of him. The past couple days, I noticed something strange: the nightlight in our guest bathroom turned a VERY bright white and then burned out….and last night, the lights on our ficus tree did the same thing (the lights got so bright that it woke me up…was like a sunlight)..and then they burned out, too.

Is this a sign of paranormal activity? I never heard of anything like this, with the exception of lights flickering and going off and on..all of which we have had in the past month as well. Thanks so much.

Annie Hall script by Woody AllenANNIE HALL ANNIE HALL written by Woody Allen Marshall Brickman (Sound and Woody Allen monologue begin) FADE IN: White credits dissolve in and out on black screen. No sound. FADE OUT: credits FADE IN: Abrupt medium close-up of Alvy Singer doing a comedy monologue. He wearing a crumbled sports jacket and tieless shirt; the background is stark. ALVY There's an old joke. Uh, two elderly women are at a Catskills mountain resort, and one of 'em says: "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know, and such ... small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life. Full of loneliness and misery and suffering and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly. The-the other important joke for me is one that's, uh, usually attributed to Groucho Marx, but I think it appears originally in Freud's wit and its relation to the unconscious. And it goes...
