Magpie, 6/20/11


She had always been an amazing psychic.
He had once had an autographed photo
just like this one.When he found this at
a yard sale on Saturday; he had not thought
of her in years. He phoned another good friend
immediately; and was shocked to hear her say
"Sheila just passed away,didn't you see it in the paper?
Her Memorial service is on Wednesday- Please come!!"

Sometimes things like this DO happen! In just a few words, you told a story that leaves me wanting to know more. Does he go? What was his relationship with her like? Does her death leave him with a gaping-wide void?

Reflections said...

Wow... a truly powerful impact. Your words carry so much depth from the photo.

Like she was reaching out to him, so he could know she had gone. Powerful!

Sioux is right. Things like this really do happen sometimes, and I think it is more than coincidence, although I hardly know what to call it.

I would be really sad to discover someone I haven't been in touch for a long time had passed away. I'd feel awful for not having managed to keep that person in my life for enough time while she was still alive. =/

Kiss you. =*
