Our story for this week comes from Sandy Harmon. When this one appeared on the podcast I had no way to track down where Sandy lived. However, after it aired on the show she contacted me and said that she hails from San Francisco. One of my favorite cities to visit! Here is Sandy’s original email:
Thank you for the podcast. I listen to it each week and marvel at the stuff you come up with. It’s so entertaining. I have a story to share that happened to me this past summer. I want to title it Strange Encounter At Brooks Park.
I was walking in a local park when I got this feeling that I was being followed. I turned around and there was no one there, but just to be on the safe side I took a second look. I kept on walking and coming from the other direction I saw an older man walking his dog. This made me feel a little better since now I wasn’t really alone but I still had the feeling that I was being watched. As I walked by the man he stopped me and asked if I had seen anyone in the area. I responded that I hadn’t, but asked him why he was asking. He told me that he had this strange sensation that he was being watched. I had to pick my jaw up from the sidewalk. I told him my story and we both laughed about it. We continued to talk when another lady came up to us and said that she couldn’t help but overhear us. Then she told us that she too had felt like someone had been following her and watching. This was too strange. We chatted a bit longer, thought that we must be crazy, laughed about that, and then went our separate ways.
That night I had a dream about walking in that very same park. I remember in my dream that I was looking around and a bum walked up to me and asked for some food. I told him that I was out walking and that I didn’t have anything for him this time. That was the dream, and the odd thing is that it felt so very real. The next morning I was listening to the radio and one of the stories that they were reporting was that the night before a transient man had been found passed away in that very park. He had died of natural causes and authorities were having trouble identifying him. I wanted to go to the police and share my story but I just couldn’t see how it would be helpful.
Ron, that is my story and I hope you enjoyed it. It’s true and it probably doesn’t mean anything but I thought I should send it in.
