    Sent Back To Keep A Promise

    I have no memory of this tale, although it is my own.  I’ve searched high and low and gathered what I could, like a child’s rock collection.  Each nugget, stone and pebble unique and from a different source.  Some polished and smooth, others rough.  None, clear and...

    I died as a child. 6 yrs old.

    I drown. I was pulled out of the water and resuscitated by some woman who happened to walk by and then disappeared. I remember after dying as an impossibly large bright space with many people glad to see me and a figure that told me not to be afraid. I responded that I was not...

    I Died Once...

    I died once. Strangled. Suffocation. I was dead. A doctor present at the time saved me. Well, he brought me back anyway. My mother was there too. Sounds odd? I was a new born, strangled by my own umbilical cord. You can't help but take something like that personally. I suffered...
