    Childhood Memory

    Another thread I just read about the child seeing the old lady in black with the limp triggered a memory of a sad time for my family in the early 1980s when my aunt died suddenly in London and her husband died at the funeral.

    Memory Of 'Something'

    Honestly, how long have I been here? And I haven't told the tale of the thing that started my interest in the paranormal, tch!

    Remembering Things Not Your Own

    Has anyone had the experience of remembering or recalling experiences/languages that were not their own? I have been bothered by this ever since I was in primary/junior school - When bored and just daydreaming as a kid I was able to write in a script that was not our normal alphabet and also...

    Earliest Memories

    I too avoid mirrors when it's dark. The shadowy look of things causes the light etc. to play tricks on my eyes and it always freaks me out. Playing "Bloody Mary" with my cousins as a kid probably didn't help either... :cross eye
