omg - yes - it's happened to me twice.
One was not a person I don't think. I don't know what "it" was or whatever. I was leaving my office job, walking with a sea of people through the
lobby area to head out the door (downtown city) to walk over to my parking garage. Walking fast, deep in my own thoughts, whatever.
Suddenly, a person-like being was calling to me, and I thought it was a homeless person (as there are some panhandlers and homeless type downtown
around this major building, and sometimes they might come in to the common area).
This person was the tallest person I've ever seen in real life. Very tall. Very thin. If I had to guess, I'd say 8 foot tall. Covered in weird
clothing combo, way too warm for the weather. Again, so fast, I thought it was just a homeless person wearing all of their clothes at one time (which
I mumbled something about not having any cash or whatever, and kept walking, but suddenly it was like time slowed. This person was saying something
beautiful to me and handing me the most incredible orange/red rose, a color so beautiful I was mesmorized. I want you to have this and I want you to
be happy, the person said. I could not tell if it was a "man" or "woman" by the voice or appearance.
I said, I don't have any money on me, I can't give you money. I tried to look at his or her face, and this is the part that was so strange. I swear
to god that person looked like a bird, not a person. Hood, hat, sunglasses, and nothing that looked like a person's face -- it looked like a real
"beak" - large, and a rounded head -- like an eagle or hawk's head. No "jawline" --
Voice was odd too, strange.
I was so taken aback trying to process the tall, hidden bird being, I said thank you and hurried away, thinking "what was that and what was that all
about?" -- and I turned around and they weren't there. But I had the flower. I took it home and it stayed alive for the longest time in water. I
looked at it every day, wondering what had happened that day.
Earlier that day, a small bird (or young bird?) was either dazed or hurt or something, on the sidewalk as I walked to work from my car. I moved it
from the sidewalk to right next to the building so no one would step on it. I stayed and wondered what to do, I didn't know if I should come back to
the spot with a box and take the bird home, or leave it there. I agonized for about 10 minutes, and folks walking by ignored me.
Eventually I left and left the bird there, and the rest of the way to my office the sidewalk had white feathers. I mean, every couple steps there were
feathers on the ground, all the way up one street, cross it, and up the other. I was amazed and did not understand where the feathers had come from.
And when I left work that day, the "bird" person showed up with a rose.
The other episode was more of a "ghost" person that I think was one of those "repetitive" images that occur over and over. Looked like a man from
the 1800s, crazed look in his eye, barreling toward me after dusk, as I walked back to a cottage I was staying at in a chataqua area. It frightened
me, I said, "you startled me," but the man never looked at me, and kept hurrying by and I turned around, he wasn't there. I saw him charging at me
again a block or to later, as if he had looped around and came toward me at the exact same angle. I thought he was real at the time and was afraid to
enter my cottage alone as I had no neighbors nearby and the street was empty and dark. I went to my car and he was charging toward me again. I got in,
locked the door, looked outside, in my mirrors, he was gone. I started the car and moved slowly, he was no where. I went around a couple blocks, and
shaking, came back and ran into my cottage. But I assume now that this was a ghost in a loop.
