I thought coming up to Halloween would be a good time to post this.
Now my mother has always said I am far sighted, now I am not sure if she just means I can see further than her based on the fact I am taller than she is so my horizon is further away, or if she means something deeper and more meaningful. I tend to suspect the latter.
When she was younger mum often dabbled in reading the tea leaves and I must say more often than not she was 100% accurate, I must say though I was not a believer, even when she told a friend with two children well into their teens that she was going to have another baby. Sure enough nine months after her friends children had a weekend away she presented them and her husband with a little baby brother. As far as I can remember she never spoke to my mother again.
Anyway, I know you’re asking yourself what this has to do with me being far sighted, well to be honest not a lot but it has set the scene nicely for the bit about a vision, a found house and a touch of the future.
Are you sitting comfortably? You are! Excellent I shall begin. Settle down at the back no fidgeting. Anne put down your iPhone you will only break it again!!!
One dark autumn night the rain was lashing against the windows, the wind was howling and blowing causing the branches of the tree to beat against the windows…..
No scrap that that’s a totally different story that I may tell you sometime, but that sometime is not today.
Now for almost six years I have kept getting this image clearly in my mind, it’s a view I can see whilst I appear to be sitting in front of a house, I can only see the view and I can’t see what the house looks like but I know it’s behind me nor can I see much to the left or the right. In this view I can see amongst other things trees, an overhead line, support poles, a couple of post boxes, one each side of the road and a track leading to buildings in the distance. Now this is not a static black & white picture, it’s in full colour and a moving scene I can see vehicles travelling along the road that’s between where I am sitting and the view I can see. The seasons change as does the general weather.
Now from this view, the post box and the vehicles passing I deduced that it was in America. Other than that I had no idea where it was. I have never visited America, actually not possessing a passport I have never been outside the UK though I have found some parts of Wales a bit of an adventure. Now before you ask what happens if I see the view at a time when it would be dark in the States the answer is yes when I see it at that time then what I see is a night view.
So we have this view or vision whatever you want to call it in full colour with moving objects that’s as clear as if I was actually sitting there in person. Sometimes it even rains and I can see that together with spray off passing vehicles etc.
Please remember I have been seeing this for almost six years. That time span is very important.
As some of those who know me well are aware I love looking at stuff on Google Earth it fascinates me to look round places around the world especially at street level. Well one day about a year ago for no specific reason I chose a spot on the map in the United States, I came across a house located in Annville Kentucky, and for some strange reason I immediately decided that if I ever had the money I would try and buy the house, why I have no idea but I immediately decided that if the opportunity arose I would make an offer for it.
Often since finding the house I have often run through Annville on Google Earth down the main road seeing what the place and general area is like, and yes one day I know I will try and buy that house, of that I am in no doubt whatsoever.
Now we come to the spooky part.
Some weeks ago I decided to look at the specific view out from the front of this house, why I had not done so before I have no idea, so using street view I did a scan across the view opposite from the roadside in front of the house. Guess what, the view I saw was exactly the same view I have been seeing in my mind for almost the last six years allowing for the fact that I see it from the front of the house rather than from the roadside so I can see a tree and a post box in the front garden of the house that I can’t see on the Google street view looking out opposite from the road but they are there when I look from the road towards the house, now is that spooky or what.
Here are the facts, I have for almost six years been seeing this view that’s the same as the one that can be seen from the front of a house I found on Google Earth about a year ago.
So there you have it, a vision a found house and a touch of the future. I have no rational explanation for the things I have seen and continue to see.
As a further little story to add to the far seeing theory, some years ago I worked in retail and together with another lad we had just unloaded some cages full of stock from a delivery, they were all safely on the loading bay, all the wheels were locked and the cages nowhere near the edge, we had both checked and confirmed that. Well we were down at ground level and the chap I was with went to walk towards a rubbish skip to put something in. That would have taken him in front of the safely wheel locked cages above us on the loading bay. As he started to move I called for him to stop which he did so. A couple of seconds later a cage full of stock tipped off the loading bay and landed where he would have been. That scared the hell out of the both of us, and over the years I have not told many people this story.
So there it is my vision or whatever you want to call it, I am not aware of any deep meaning but I do know that I will visit Annville Kentucky at some stage and I will if I can buy that house.
Please feel free to comment on any of the above either on the blog or if you prefer by email direct.
Please note Mum is not available for tea leaf reading!!
Have a great Halloween.
