Have you ever seen a ghost? Have you ever felt one?
Visual apparitions are rare. I waited my whole life to see a clear one.
I’ve always noticed the amorphous, ephemeral shades:
thin wispy white ones, bulbous black blobby ones, and
the darting quick grey cat ones. The human form eluded me,
until I moved to New Orleans. I hope to tell some of those stories
in the next installment. I wish I understood more about them.
Once again, I’m sorry to say that I culled these images randomly,
and have no idea of their provenance. As always, enlighten me
if you know, and automatic mad props are due to their creators,
be they living or dead. Have you ever photographed a ghost?
If so, I’d love to see it. I love spirit photography, even fakes.
This one tends to creep me out. For some reason, I always imagine
that the bannister railing is her long arm gone all stretchy. Eeep!
I see the dead in dreams. Usually it’s the dead parents of my friends,
asking me to look out for them. I think parents have a hard time leaving
this plane when their children are still here. I’ve only seen my mother
there a handful of times. I get the sense that she passed through long ago.
I’ve seen poltergeists, or more accurately,
seen objects moved or damaged by unseen hands.
It can be alarming. Also, phantom odors and sounds and chills.
