I totally understand. I used to see black fuzzy ones, some as big as a beachball and thats when bad things happened here too. The white little ones I see alot, they are cute and yes comforting..CE
A little offtopic, but you reminded me of these guys
The little soot creatures from Spirited Away, hey, its a ghost movie. XD
But I wonder if these faeries, or whatever they are, are a symbol of better times approaching?
