Stranger Than Fiction

I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE AN ASTRAL EXPERIENCE I HAD YEARS AGO, WHEN I WOKE UP FROM A DREAM THAT WAS SO REALISTIC, I HAD TO LOOK AROUND & MAKE SURE I WAS STILL IN MY BED! IN THIS "DREAM", I WAS FLYING - COULD ACTUALLY FEEL THE WIND ON MY SKIN. WITHOUT ANY IDEA WHERE I WAS FLYING TO, I SUDDENLY FOUND MYSELF FLOATING NEAR THE CEILING OF THE HOUSE THAT I GREW UP IN AS A CHILD. IT HAD BEEN MANY, MANY YEARS SINCE MY FAMILY HAD MOVED OUT FROM THERE. LOOKING DOWN, I OBSERVED PEOPLE THAT WERE NOW LIVING IN IT; ALL MALES IN THEIR 20'S, THEY HAD LONG SUN BLEACHED HAIR & SPOKE IN SURFER LINGO. THIS "DREAM" REALLY GOT TO ME - TO THE POINT WHERE THE NEXT MORNING I GOT INTO MY CAR TO DRIVE THE 12 MILES DISTANCE & CRUISE PAST MY OLD HOME. WHEN I SAW FOUR SURF BOARDS LINED UP ON THE FRONT PORCH, IT REALLY SPOOKED ME! SO I QUICKLY DROVE AWAY - NEVER TELLING ANYONE OF THIS "DREAM".

A FEW YEARS LATER, A FRIEND & I WERE DRIVING THROUGH MY OLD NEIGHBORHOOD. I DECIDED TO SHARE THE STORY WITH HIM. HE WANTED TO SEE THE HOUSE, SO WE ENDED UP DRIVING TO IT. IN THE FRONT YARD, THERE WAS A BLONDE MAN IN HIS 30's, PRUNING A BUSH. MUCH TO MY SURPRISE, MY COMPANION PULLED UP RIGHT IN FRONT, JUMPED OUT, & ASKED, "EXCUSE ME, SIR. THIS GIRL USED TO LIVE HERE. DO YOU MIND IF WE LOOKED AROUND FOR JUST A MINUTE?" THE MAN WAS VERY FRIENDLY & SAID, "SURE. YOU'RE MORE THAN WELCOME TO."

AS WE WALKED THROUGH THE YARD, I REMEMBERED MY PET CEMETERY, THE TIME CAPSULE MY CHILDHOOD PALS & I BURIED IN 1966, HOW WE VOWED TO RETURN & DIG IT UP IN THE YEAR 2000, SO MANY MEMORIES RUSHED THROUGH ME. MUCH HAD CHANGED - AN EXTENSION WAS BUILT ON TO THE BACK OF THE HOUSE , THE GARAGE WAS GONE, THE GIANT AVOCADO TREE CHOPPED DOWN.

THE MAN ASKED IF I WANTED TO LOOK INSIDE, BUT I DECLINED. I ONLY WANTED TO REMEMBER IT THE WAY IT HAD BEEN WHEN IT WAS MY HOME. HE TOLD ME THAT HE LIVED THERE AS A CARETAKER FOR YEARS & HOW THE OWNER RENTED OUT ROOMS IN THE HOUSE TO STUDENTS FROM THE NEAR-BY UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII. I ASKED HIM, "ARE THE TENANTS MOSTLY SURFERS?" HE ANSWERED,"YES, I'M A SURFER ALSO. HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT?" TO WHICH I REPLIED, "NEVER MIND. YOU'D NEVER BELIEVE ME!"

WE THANKED HIM & THEN LEFT. CALL IT AN ASTRAL PROJECTION, OUT OF BODY TRAVEL, SOME FORM OF CLAIRVOYANCE OR TELEPATHY - I REALLY DON'T KNOW. WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT IT WAS AN EERIE EXPERIENCE THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET. MUCH MORE THAN A DREAM. IT WAS VERY REAL - BECAUSE IT HAPPENED TO ME.
