It is still the clearest memory I have and if I concentrate on the details, I still get in a little state of shock. I must have been 3 years old when it happened.
My mother was an actress; we lived in Hungary, maybe Veszprém at that time. (I'm not sure, we moved three times, before I got 4).
It was afternoon. I was playing with my toys on the carpet of our old living room. People were walking on the street as usual, and suddenly I clearly saw a woman standing by the window. She wore dark green clothes, had black hair and a white pale face. She was about 40 years old. She stared right into my eyes for about half a minute. I started to scream and cry, because in her eyes I clearly saw and felt darkness and emptiness. Then my mom and dad came in the room, but by the time they arrived, she was gone.
She was familiar somehow, but where could you put a face, that you had never seen before, in the way it was? At the window I saw my mother, who died six years later.
There is no explanation... I didn't saw any scary movies that young, and I'm 22 now but it is still the clearest face in my memory. Even if it wasn't her, and I just replaced it with her in my mind because of the loss... (well I don't think so) I saw the darkness, and I felt the emptiness in her eyes.
Is there anyone out there with similar experiences?
