New Vistors? by Mannerizms

Merry Meet all, I apologize again, for being so long since my last encounter shared. I am currently trying to figure out what is going on in my new home.

My Childhood Ghost Experiences by ConfusingxRain

Paranormal Experiences Or Coincidences by the22centuryboi

This would be my first post here. I am a true to heart sceptic and haven't seen enough proof firsthand to conclude the existence of absolute good or bad.
