We learned to whistle in the dark…

“Why is it we mortals are terrified by the prospect of encountering ghosts and yet so many of us harbor a fascination and yearning for just such a meeting? Why do so many of us share this morbid obsession with ghosts? As children we read ghost stories under the bedcovers at night or huddled around a campfire, afraid to look over our shoulders, as someone told us a ghost story. Some of us grew up near old, abandoned houses that we were certain were haunted, houses that simultaneously repelled and attracted us. We learned, almost instinctively, that we had no business being in cemeteries after nightfall. We learned to whistle in the dark.”
