Johnny Cash Ghost Picture

the ghost of Johnny Cash. Her ideas concerning how the ghost of Johnny Cash manifested are quite interesting. Is it the ghost of Johnny Cash? You decide...

"I recently took this picture February 7th 2009, of who I believe to be the ghost of Johnny Cash. February was the birth month of Johnny, who would have been 77 years old, so maybe he was there for a celebratory visit (February was also an anniversary date of the release of the 'Ring of Fire' CD by Johnny Cash). I took the picture at "The Stage" on Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee.

Cash and others hung out on Broadway (actually manycountry stars hung out there). The interesting thing about this picture was, I had just been looking at and taken pictures of the popular mural on the wall behind the stage, which Johnny Cash was in. He was standing behind and next to Merle Haggard, who was in the mural, as well. Then I was taking a few pics of my sister and friend.

When I was reviewing the pictures in the LCD screen, right away I saw an image that looked to be of a ghost. My sister looked and said right away, 'It looks like Johnny Cash.' Then later, I started to notice that this image looked similar to how I briefly perceived the mural earlier through my camera (ironically thinking the hand was to be of Johnny's, going to point, but was in fact Merle Haggard's going to grab for his hat, which I realized when I moved the camera away from my face.

Could Johnny himself have been in tune with my thoughts just moments prior, by then overlapping my friend's hand, as if his spirit was morphing, using her energy in motion, mimicking what I had just thought I had seen in the mural?

In other words, 'synchronicity;' the spirit synchronizing with our thoughts, and happenings, appearing to be a coincidence, when indeed it is a high level of energy around us coupled by the energy of body movement? "

At the top of the possible apparition there appears to be a 'J' and interesting enough, this was actually his birth name: J R Cash...NOT Johnny. Birth records have his name as J.R. Cash. The following is a quote from the Free dictionary:

'The Man in Black" was born J. R. Cash in Kingsland, Arkansas, and raised in Dyess, Arkansas. He was reportedly given the name "J. R." because his parents could not agree on a name, only on initials. Giving children such names was not an uncommon practice at the time,,,When he enlisted in the United States Air Force, the military would not accept initials as his name, so he adopted John R. Cash as his legal name. Then when signing with Sun Records in 1955, he took Johnny Cash as his stage name. His friends and in-laws generally called him John, while his blood relatives often continued to call him by his birth name, J. R.'"
