In the Circle, Within the Leaves

The Temporary Tale of a Wannabe Ghost Hunter

If it hasn’t been worked out quite yet, I like the tales of the supernatural. As dumb as I think they are, I can ever entirely stray away from the shows where a group of people go into abandoned buildings and salivate at the sight of dust specks and claims of supernatural presence. I’m essentially¬†an addict and ghosts are my heroin.

Part of the reason I so enjoy these shows is that I’m not entirely sold on the existence of ghosts, demons, and anything in between. It would be exciting if they were, but I tend to have a difficult time carrying a belief in such ideas I’ve yet to have any personal experience with. I’m a stubborn and set in my ways, making me a difficult person to convince of much anything.

I do have a background in ghost hunting. As a young high school aged lad, my friends and I became the ones that would go into decrepit buildings that were supposedly¬† “haunted.” I fulfilled the essential role of the reluctant friend who was there because I had a car and could drive, so naturally, my presence was required in any group. I try my best to appeal to any cliche that’ll have me.

I came to find out old, rundown buildings are not the ideal place when you’re accident prone and apprehensive. On one of our excursions, I fell through the floor of a house. I’m pretty sure we were trapped in a building with a homeless man at one point, and not once did I see a ghost. Needless to say, my life as a ghost hunter was a fruitless endeavor.

Maybe at some point, a spiritual entity will decide to grace my presence with their being and allow me to develop a definitive answer, as well as add something to my ever-growing list of fears. Until that day, I’ll just have to worry about common everyday worries, like measles because people don’t vaccinate their kids or sudden bear attacks.
