I recently found myself moving into a new house after 20 plus years of living in the same one. As you might imagine, I had become accustomed to the creaks and squeaks of my old house. Moving to a new one posed all sorts of new experiences, not the least of which is getting used to the normal sounds of the home. It’s not so much that I think it may be haunted – its too soon to tell that yet. But it sounds different. It feels different.
You may be wondering why I bring it up at all if I’m not worried about ghosts and unearthly beings inhabiting the home. It’s that the possibilty exists , that’s all. Well, that and those pesky knocks I heard on my bedroom door when there was no one around and the knocking on my window the very next day. Now, I’m not suggesting my bedroom is haunted. I’m sure there are perfectly logical explanations for knocks from an invisible hand.
