Out of the blue, the actress I was driving asked me,
“Do you believe in spirits?”
It was 5 a.m. on a Tuesday and we were driving to somewhere through the middle of nowhere… After some thought, traversing through decades of non spiritual encounters I finally arrived at…
“Yes I guess I do… I experienced things when I was younger, that are hard to explain any other way. “
“Go on.” She encouraged.
“When I was about 18, for about a month in the spring of 1980 when I could hear something breathing in my bedroom. I would hold my breath to make sure it wasn’t me. It wasn’t. I checked under the bed. Even checked under the house. It was like it was coming from inside me. Also during this time I had nightmares where I unconsciously knocked out the windows in my bedroom while asleep about six or seven different occasions while screaming at something or other. This was witnessed by someone who was quite unnerved by the whole thing. I’ve never seen anything like a ghost per se…. Just felt or heard something I couldn’t explain.
When my daughter was 4 and she announced to me.
“I’m not afraid of dying.”
“Why not?” I asked.
“Because we just turn into ghosts.”
