We live in a world of ghosts. Ghosts are bits of history that repeat themselves, the past made present; sometimes they materialize as we watch, sometimes we just feel their cold presence around us. Some are summoned, some come unbidden. Some are as big as countries and wars, and others are so small they fit inside your heart.
