First of all, the kid in the sheet is not a ghost.
Still, it's a cute photo. And the outfit being worn is likely most tantalizing to bears in the vicinity. They love it when you can't see them coming.
Things that are told to me as ghost encounters that I get VERY unexcited about are cached photos of orbs.
1. At least 99.99% of the photos of orbs taken by digital cameras are NOT ghosts. That's just an opinion, mind you. But, I really, truly never want to see another orb photo.
Until one talks to me, I remain unconvinced that digital-camera produced orbs have anything to do with ghosts.
Maybe when someone gets a photo of an orb wearing a hat or eating a piece of pizza, you can sign me up as faithful follower of the Orbitists. Until then....
2. Okay, I think it is really nifty when people find things they lost. The fact that I looked for something right there and didn't see it, then looked right there again and find it, does NOT mean a ghost was hiding it from me.
Because people do have near-death experiences, I will accept that near-ghost experiences occur. Perhaps they occur with some frequency. Sometimes when you are alone you have the eerie feeling someone is watching you. Except when someone is (now that's scary), you might be experiencing a ghost.
When you wake up in the morning in a house all by yourself and you hear someone whispering your name over and over again this could very truly be a ghost experience. I know a young woman who moved out of her ground-floor college apartment after two weeks of experiencing this ghostly whispering of her name. An old house near UNC-Asheville had been divided into two apartments downstairs.
She said she felt as if she were being softly touched... that it was this touching that woke her and then she heard the voice. She had never experienced anything similar before moving in or after leaving the apartment. She told me that even driving on the street where the old house is located still fills her with a sense of ominous dread.
Do you believe this is a true ghost experience? I do.
When it comes to ghosts, seeing is sometimes believing. But, believe me, you don't have to see a ghost to encounter a ghost. The ghost only has to see you.
