David, thanks for sharing. To your point about the woman's gait being "out of sync" with her rate of speed, might it have been like the motions of rollerskating/blading?

David will answer your question if he comes across your post I bet.
Sadness is a common feeling sensed in ghost sightings.
Mogwa said:the concept of "ghosts" as spiritual entitities wandering about eternally doesn't seem to serve any purpose I can possibly conceive.
Maybe I'm just stupid.
Ankhes said:Yeah, I know, I'm posting on a "dead" thread! But I am pretty new to the Paracast and after listening to the most recent show, I move backwards. I just heard this one last night. I have to say...wow! GREAT story! I am referring to David and Bill's soundless girl.
The detail you guys gave was fantastic; from the indistinct hands to the "not entirely there" face.
At first I thought she must be a ghost because of the mundane activity she was engaged in. But then you mentioned the fear and sadness aspect. I have no ideas about that. An emotion personified, one of you wondered. Maybe. Why not? It is as good a guess as any.
I have to wonder how you both managed to sit and stare at her for a full 10 minutes. That is quite a long time. It must have been difficult to maintain your nerve. You also mentioned her digging in a bag or purse of some kind. Did she ever "find" what she was looking for?
I don't really expect any replies to this post. I just wanted to mention my thoughts because I've just heard this episode. Usually I am exercising or doing housework when I listen to the Paracast. Not this time. I was listening before trying to drop off to sleep. Heh! I didn't sleep for quite some time after listening to THAT story!

David Biedny said:If it happened today, I'd guess that I would be more confrontational, but in the moments that this kind of thing is actually happening, it's really difficult to be cool and collected. I was afraid that she would look at us, or get up and come over to us. There was a sense of dread, knowing that what we were seeing was not a live, flesh-and-blood person. When she looked over at towards the end of the encounter, Bill grabbed my arm, and my blood froze. We were scared.
I remember looking down at her feet, and they were right on the ground.
