Old Photographs with Old Orbs
For example, one night I was watching television and the garage door just started opening and closing over and over again. I couldn't get it to stop. I mashed the button and yelled at it but it kept going. I figured the damned thing was broken. It finally stopped and worked fine after that, but mechanical malfunctions happen, right? Another night all the electronic toys in the living room started going off at the same time. Remote control cars buzzed around the room and toy Buzz Lightyear's screamed out about infinity and beyond. A cow flashlight bellowed "moo" over and over again. I laughed. It was funny. I don't remember how I explained that one, but it made a lot of sense. Similar things happened often in that house, but it was a new house and I didn't think it was haunted. One night I did panic. The garage door opened and I couldn't get it to close. Every time I closed it, it just opened again. It really freaked me out, but what are you going to do? In the morning it was OK. We moved, I forgot about all these oddities and I had wonderful explanations for all of these types of events even if I can't remember them now.
However, as I went through some old photo albums, I found a series of wonderful photographs in that house with some lovely orbs. Orbs in no way prove the presence of the supernatural, but I find their presence interesting and they make me wonder if maybe all my explanations weren't wrong? Who knows? They are lovely orbs. I'm not going to put them all here because I was much better back then and I have them glued in scrapbooks I hate to destroy, but I placed one on the top of this page. All the photos look similar. Some of the orbs almost have little faces in them.
