Ghost story…

…I am solo camping and I thought I saw something outside. I looked out the window but there was nothing. then I heard something… Like a whisper… was it the wind? no there is no wind. The leaves on the trees are perfectly still tonight. I look again and I don’t see anything but… I feel something. It is strange… like a whisper in my ear, but for my eyes. I can’t really make out what my eyes are hearing. That doesn’t make any sense to me, but it is what I am feeling. Maybe it’s the solitude, but it can’t be - there are people all around me here, but I don’t know any of them. My senses are on high alert now, I am tingling, The dogs are sleeping. If there was something there they would see it, wouldn’t they? There it is again… I saw it this time. By the fire. I grab my camera and start shooting. Then. nothing. it’s gone. I can tell because the hair on my neck has laid down. It’s not cold but I shiver. The tension goes away from my shoulders and I feel relived for some reason, like I was just given good news, like I was being hugged. Maybe that’s it. Maybe its just that I miss my wife and I miss my son. They will be home on Tuesday. I’ll feel better then. It was a longing that I was feeling. That’s all. Let’s check the camera anyway…
