As much as I love a good fright and gratuitous gore, if I were a ghost, I’d be more on the Casper spectrum.
I visited my Mom last Sunday for Mother’s Day in her new space. It had a bit of a creepy 1960s time-warp feel, and I asked, “Do you see ghosts in this place?”
“Yes,” she replied. “This room used to be where the nun who answered the convent’s front door would sleep. I see her walk by in her robe.”
I was comforted to know that she’s not alone.
Many Ghost Adventures episodes are my favourite. But the one that stands out for me is when the crew visits the Linda Vista Hospital. Their fear of being in that rough neighbourhood combined with the paranormal activity was captivating. I’ve watched it a few times, and the scene with the nurse always gets me.
