Brushes with the Paranormal—UFO’s

I should start this topic off by saying the Irish have always believed that the veil that separates this world from the next is very very thin. They respect those that have “the sight,” and they tell stories about the “little people.” Maybe I owe my willingness to believe in the paranormal to my Irish heritage, I dont know. All I know is, I do believe.

Yes, Im broaching the topic of the paranormal, a risky topic under the best of circumstances, but a positively suicidal one for a fledgling blogger. Be that as it may, I am plunging ahead full bore with anecdotes from various sources, some personal, some gleaned from national/international material. I know that most folks dont give a good Goddamn about this topic, however most foks wont click on the title either. I figure if yer here in the first place, its because you secretly believe just like I do. Ok. Prepare to suspend your disbelief.

I’ll start off with an event that happened after my sister and I came home from a lengthy field trip. We had just arrived by bus back to our schoolgrounds, and our parents were all there waiting to pick us up. It was mid to late afternoon. We attended a school in the Bay Area (In Pinole, for those who care) in the mid- to early- 60’s (yes, the height of the UFO sightings craze). As we were all loading up into our families’ cars, we spied a huge blimp-like object obscuring the sky. Of course, the adults all hustled us kids into our respective cars in a flat hurry, but the weird thing was, all the way down the winding road away from the school, that blimp-thing followed us. and as the sky got darker, all of a sudden, there appeared a “spotlight” that started out as an electric blue and eventually whitened to an electric white….both the spotlight, and the “blimp” followed us (all) away from the schoolyard. My mother was a passenger in the car and got a real good bird’s eye view of this thing, and when she described it to me years later for a college writing assignment, I got goosebumps. I remembered the main incident but not the details she knew because I was in the backseat and clueless until the blimp thing changed position and I could see it outside my window. Anyway, long story short, the thing followed us for quite awhile, but eventually stopped and disappeared almost immediately. just flew off vertical. poof. The next day, the police scanners and tv news stations were full of sightings, and of course the official story was “weather balloon”. I knew better, and so did my folks. we saw a freakin UFO. and to this day I hate getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. More mind benders later.

by the way, I DID try and research similar occurances via the web, but nothing came up. I suppose because there was no internet back then and maybe no one else thought to publish the story?? I’ll keep trying, tho.

in future posts, Im going to introduce bigfoot, lochness monster/permutations. ufo’s, alien dna, underground utopias/mountain labyrinths, etc etc.
