Anyone Superstitious? or ..........

anyone who has seen my photo series about my mate Shane who unfortunately left us in September 2006, will know something of the journey but, I just thought I would pass on what happened the morning he left us…………I was up early as usual, been for a walk, papers, coffee, sitting down the back near the creek, the magpies sitting around me as they usually did, singing their cheery and beautiful songs, talking away. I was reading and sipping on the coffee when I had this overpowering urge that something had happened to Shane …….I still can’t really explain it, but I looked at my mobile phone and it said 6.45 am, I sat there wondering about all of this and what to do, in the end, I thought that it was too early to ring his household and decided to wait until later and check things out. I sat there finished my coffee and read for awhile, then my mobile rang, it was a mate of mine, Keith, he informed me that Shane had passed away that morning, I was feeling really weird about this, although we all knew that it was coming any time. I asked Keith about what happened and he then told me Shane went at 6.45 am and that would be the official time of death………I don’t know what people believe in or what they want to make of things…….but this is as it happened…………to go with this, at an earlier stage, when we thought he was going to die one weekend only to recover, a few days after that, he called me into his room and told me that he had seen my father and passed a message on from him to me…….it was an amazing moment in my life……I take his word for it, that this happened ……….I never disbelieve anything nor do I believe easily, but this makes me think a lot………..ciao
