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.
I found a new paranormal investigation show, Ghost Brothers. I gave it a shot, and loved it. The investigators are funny and likeable. They interact curiously with ghosts, which I like more than the aggressive approach that Zak Bagans takes (though don’t get me wrong, I’m a big Ghost Adventures fan). I also really like this new show because they are exploring African-American ghosts, which allows for more history and story-telling about Black history in America—as well as the mystical cultures of Black communities, like the voodoo at the plantation in their first episode.
I’m definitely going to keep watching this show!
