Laura makes ASCII art, using MS Notepad. (Since 1998). She is currently exploring adding colour to the plain text to make postcards.

Long ago my family went to see The Phantom of the Opera. I loved it. No one else did. For me Phantom of the Opera will always be my favourite ghost story. I don't like horror. I'm not 100% sure where I stand on the issue of ghosts. I do believe in reincarnation so, how can there be people left behind if everyone is supposed to get recycled? However, I do think past emotions and tragedies can remain to haunt a place, or a person.

My Grandmother saw ghosts. Her sister and her husband appeared to her after their deaths. She saw other ghosts too but refused to "see" them. A psychic once told her there were a lot of spirits around her wanting to get help and talk to her. But, my Grandmother said she would never get involved with all of that. One day she spoke out and told them all to leave her alone. From then on she wasn't bothered any more. As a kid, I felt the same way about ghosts. I didn't think anyone hanging around could be all fluffy bunnies and good intentions. So, before I was even a teenager I did the same as my Grandmother. I spoke out loud and said I didn't want to see anything. Maybe that's why I never have. I'm fine with that.

I do explore abandoned houses here in Ontario. I love the history of them, the way they look as they weather and I like the mystery of not knowing what happened to the house or the people who once lived there. There is a romantic kind of feeling about it all. But, though many people tell me the houses look creepy or haunted, I have never felt creeped out by any of them. Except one but that was more about a toad I thought I may have stepped on than anything ghostly.
