shines the light on his essential

Drew SintonMy essential is my torch.

There is a quote: "Only out of the womb of darkness is born the light of knowledge". That's a quote from a sixth century Greek philosopher called Zosimus - that's my torch, it represents the light of knowledge on my ghost tours; we go around from place to place, shining this light of knowledge. This torch has been out to nearly every (haunted) case I've investigated in Melbourne. It's 10 years old. I got it from an Army Disposal shop for about $50. It's been to some of the most famous haunted places. It's been to Como (house), Ripponlea (house), the State Library. I've taken it with me everywhere. I'm attached to this torch. It's been to the Classic Cinema which is haunted. I left it there accidentally. I was heart-broken. Talk about stupid! How many people get attached to a torch? It had a little bit of a journey of its own. One of the ushers wanted to keep it. They thought it was a good torch. The torch is very expensive to run. It takes four D-size batteries and, of course, that costs about $10. They last about two weeks, not long at all. It's black. It has an adjustable beam. I keep it right here, behind my counter. Let's take a Jungian perspective of this: it's 15-inches long. You get people who drive around in big cars - well, I carry around a big torch. (Drew Sinton is owner of The Haunted Bookshop, city.)
