Oh, I see what you're talking about.  I have a feeling that it's a trick of the light though.  After all, the human brain naturally makes us see humanoid shapes often where they aren't.  For example, "the man in the moon".  I won't completely rule out the supernatural possibility, but before I can accept it I need to debunk all other explanations...such is the life of a skeptical supernatural believer.  XD
<3 Rest in peace, Christiana. I love you so much, and I miss you like crazy already. At least you\'re not hurting anymore...May you ascend. <3

Exactly! I just pointed it out  because it was the  first thing  my  eye was drawn to in the picture. I'm sure it's some sort  of  light  reflecting off the  rocks  but at the  same time the  paranormal  believer in me thinks  " Oh hey look isn't that  neat!"

Some odd (in my opinion) coincidences have occurred, but I don't know if they mean anything or if I'm being silly in thinking they might.

*snip*

 
I forgot to ask. If it did happen to be some sort of entity, is it something I should be concerned about? It doesn't seem harmful and maybe could be benign?

It always occurs when I'm quite relaxed, generally in bed before I'm about to fall asleep or after I go to the beach (which I find quite relaxing). It never happens with my partner in the room, but it has sometimes happened with our small daughter sleeping or resting near me. It doesn't happen if I'm thinking, "Hmm, will it happen now?" unless it's one of those moments where I keep repeating what I'm doing to see if it will continue to happen.

I thought maybe it would be nice to leave flowers at her grave, whether or not it is anything.

I think it would be nice to leave flowers for her either way. I would only be concerned if I felt threatened or unpleasant things were happening. Have you had any experiences with spirits before?

I wouldn't be to concerned  unless  some  really  awful things start to happen, I mean this is  coming  form  someone  who actively  ignores  spirits in her house   if they are  just  being  tricksters or a little annoying.

Whatever it was (like an awful lot of coincidences... well, um, yeah) it sure is one good story.

And I agree, the crip grave stone is very touching and you can easily connect to the sorrow of the parents.
\'You had to repay, good or bad. There was more than one type of obligation.
That’s what people never really understood.….Things had to balance.
You couldn’t set out to be a good witch or a bad witch. It never worked out for long.
All you could try to be was a witch, as hard as you could.\'

Confuzzled and proud. :p
