EXCERPT

WAKING UP IN A NEW PLACE

It was an accident, or so I thought.
But I couldn't remember the details.
When I woke up
I was on some kind of lawn
that had just been mowed.
You wouldn't expect that
when you are dead or maybe you would:
a mowed lawn
that you never have to mow.
It was green and sunny and very nice and quiet very quiet.
There were people in the distance young, old all colors and types.
Someone was walking toward me but he was still a long
long way off.

I was, of course,
trying to figure things out.
I couldn't remember my name, even. I was trying to
figure out if this was a dream or real.
But then, I had doubts all my life as to what was real and what wasn't.
I wasn't breathing and when I put my hand on my chest
I couldn't feel a heartbeat.
That was scary and I started to panic.
That's when the someone headed my way was suddenly just there in front of me.
Relax
he said.
You're
home.
