  1. I’ve seen a ghost too. I even captured it on film, no matter where I moved and how much I cleaned the camera lens, it was there. I’m not sure where the photo is at the moment, but the ghost is in the shape of a man sitting on some tree roots. It was taken on the Monocacy Battlefield near where I live (Civil War).
    I loved reading this and thanks for participating 🙂

    1. It’s uncanny how we are connected again by similar experiences, I should really write mine into a story. Although it was a ghost, what I mean is I saw a person who had passed away but they looked real if you see what I mean an not ghost like.


  2. Thank you for the nomination!

    You’ve seen a ghost! I’ve had that pleasure as well. It’s quite the story. Unfortunately it was not one of my ancestors, who if they appeared in my bedroom one late night, glowing spectrally over my bed, would cause me to leap from the sheets; grab pen, paper, and smartphone; and start by asking: When did you come to Canada? What year was that? What was the name of the ship? And how do you spell your mother’s maiden name? 😉
