Prompt: Tell Me Your Real Life Ghost Stories

For Halloween, All Hallows Eve, tell me *your* ghost stories…your brushes with things unseen.

Last weekend, I enjoyed relaxing around an outdoor fire with friends, and eventually, the stories began. Almost everyone had one to tell, from the unwelcome house guest, to the midWestern prison, to the lingering theater stage hand. Most were mysterious, and downright scary. One was joyous.

I’ve actually never had a direct experience with the supernatural (unless you count dowsing), but I’ve been oddly connected with other people’s experiences over the years. 

The thing is, while I absolutely believe there’s more to the world than we can experience with our physical senses, I’m not entirely sure I *want* to have it all opened to me…

But now, as the veil thins, tell me your stories…share in the comments below.


And so, with a loving heart, I offer you
I’ve heard many translations. Here’s one I love:
The light of the universe that shines within me recognizes
the light of the universe that shines within you.

  1. Sorry, no tales for you, but as I read this a horse screamed in the field outside and gave me a right fright! (My heart is still speeding.) They can sound disturbingly human. I wonder if there is a story in that somewhere.

  2. Writing report:
    Diversion to synopsis writing. I'm trying to get it all into 500 words for a local contest. Unforutnately only halfway through and nearly to 500 already!
