Inktober 2019 – Week One

Day 5: Prompt “Build”

This prompt made me think of what people do to ward away bad luck and spirits in their homes. I’m reminded of the old Hsin Kuang restaurant in Toronto’s Chinatown, and how the way it was built, and where, attracted hauntings. I remember how cool the foo dogs that stood out front looked, and then I learned they were placed there to guard against the flow of bad spirits directed into the restaurant by the billboards across the street.
