'I didn’t get a lot of opportunities to go east in my job—for some reason the beach wasn’t a hotspot of supernatural activity. I guess it could have been all that sun and sand, or maybe it was the combination of wealth and youth that stopped people from being upset about things like ghosts and spirits and the occult . Or perhaps in some cases they took it too seriously and didn’t want an actual practitioner like me mucking up their idea of how it should work—even after the magic came back there were still a lot of people out there who wanted to make their own interpretation of spirituality. The real occult avoided that sort of thing.'
