  1. I’ve heard her. An unearthly sound I won’t forget, though cowled she was not nor was it by night. All the more unnerving when the only two at home were me and my mum who was terminal. I suspect it emanated from deep inside my mum though she never knew, never heard it nor had ever made such a keening sound before. Pehaps it does come from within. Why else would the wail be so haunting if not that it recognised our own mortality and impending demise? It still gives me shivers to remember and to think she must have known.
    Sorry if that sounds a bit depressing but I think we may be our own banshee.
