There are those who believe in orbs,
the strange balls of light that show in photographs
and thought by believers to be the picture of a lost soul,
a wandering spirit or other being from beyond this world
or at least the world as we know it.
There are others of us
who need only stand outside a vacant house or barn
to know that in these places
remain the sense of what was, and who was there,
and what they left behind.
