I hope this idea takes off. My mother had Alzheimer’s and I would have definitely investigated this further if it had been available. If I should ever be in need of supervision, this is something that I would like my children to keep in mind if it should be come necessary.
I am a big advocate in discussing elder care with my children. When I wrote Shopping for Nursing Homes in the Chicken Soup Book Living with Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias, I had no idea that this would someday become another option. With the possibility of this type of care I believe more families will receive the care and compassion so anxiously sought.
When discussing orbs, I often hear comments from skeptics such as, “There is dust on the camera,” or “that is a reflection.”
The other morning I was in an area that I often take orb pictures. I usually take pictures before I go to work and it is usually dark. On this particular day, I was not working and the sun was streaming through the window.
I was shaking a piece of clothing before placing it on a hangar. I saw dust floating in the sunlight. I decided it was a perfect time to experiment. I wanted to take a picture of what I knew was definitely dust.
The above picture shows a combination of dust and orbs. The little scattered white spots are dust. On the right is a beautiful colorful orb. The orb is distinctive by the basic orb properties. It is round with a defined rim. Orbs come in many colors and shapes. A classic orb is white or filled with color and has a pattern within. There is also another small orb to the left that is deeper blue.
People around the world are photographing and sharing orb pictures. It is a fascinating subject of inquiry. I leave the interpretation of orbs to the individual. I am always curious to learn more about orbs and this is one of my most recent experiments to differentiate whether the spot on my picture is dust or an orb.
