I had heard of that before but didn't know what it was called. Neat. I like to think that is true.
I haven't heard of them before either.
Lovely story Laura.
i do believe in ghosts, but I do believe that is just dust.
OK Laura..viewing this on my laptop..on a smaller screen hampers my vision a bit..if I looked on my desktop pc's larger monitor I'm sure I would have seen it better. I'm glad Jake has an "orb" watching over him, no matter who is might be.

I too believe in ghosts(angels) but I think those orbs are just reflections of some light source off of the lens. We live in a house that is about 120 years old and to hear the history of some of the past residents is really neat. I have talked to some of the old timers in the hood and they tell of a lady that used to live here. They say she was a Healer, making sick people well. They had specific examples and one even had a relative to confirm his story of a bad leg made good. Don't know for sure if any of it is true, but since moving in here our lives have improved drastically... I guess it is just something to have fun with but I am not gonna mess with her...LOL
Here's one of my "ghost stories". We bought this house in NC while still living in NJ. We would come down for vacations and one day found this place. We came down for the signing in 2004, and after that went out shopping for some stuff for this house. Let me preface this by saying..the owners wife had died years ago..and the owner lived in another house in NC. Well..we found out the morning of the signing that the owner had passed away earlier that morning.. We thought we'd lose this house..but his son had power of attorney and all went smooothly.
We came home from shopping and the garage door opener was not working, so I used the keys to open the front door..I no sooner stepped thru the doorway, when I heard a woman's voice say "Bill?". Bill was the owner, and the voice sounded like when you hear your SO come in and say their name in a questioning manner. I stopped dead in my tracks...and just stood there..finally after a few moments..I said outloud..Bill has passed over, you have to go find him". That incident was one of the most.....definitive ghostly happenings I've ever experienced. We have had other things happen, like one slat of a vertical blind, move back and forth for about 10 minutes..just one...no others moved..right after that we went on a trip and almost had a bad accident..so I wonder if it was a warning of sorts.
There is more that we don't know or understand I think, than we do know about the spirit world.
Ok..wacky mode OFF. Jackie
