Wow, wow, wow! What an experience! I was going to respond with this in our discussion of yesterday's post, but I'll put it here and it can count for both (for anyone who hasn't read that one yet: https://alexandermcrow.substack.com/p/a-tale-for-halloween ). Isn't there a theory in physics that time is dimensional rather than linear? So that the past, present, and future are all happening at the same time - I think of it like a length of yarn coiled flat on a table where different segments are next to each other. When I read an account such as this, it makes me wonder if that could be the explanation - that what you experienced was a melting of the dimensional barrier for reasons unknown?

I find this fascinating because although I love the magical and mysterious, fantasy, and such, I do think there is an explanation for everything but also embrace that some things we will never know. Another outstanding post, Alex!

I think if ever we were to sit and drink a cup of tea together Alexander, we would may well need a new box of tea bags before we finished recounting our stories... from the excitement of finding badger tracks, I have found three setts on the hill so far, one of which I know is well over 150 years old, (A story for a winters day perhaps...) to the voices, real or other worldly, to deer bellowing and appearing from tall bracken... all this and more - I love your diaries of this time, your discoveries and learnings... thank you for sharing!

Fascinating! I'm not sure I could have overcome the heart pounding from those encounters. What an interesting experience!

I loved this story. I don't find it scary at all (sorry Halloween), but instead very comforting for some reason. You were lucky to experience what you did!

An incredible story and experience, Alexander. I'm in awe of your level headedness in this situation, as I'm not sure I would've coped so well.
