Not wanting to sound out there or a nutter, but this is what I do know...
Silly Old Tay:- Born here early in 1960.
Buddhist monk:- Died in Tibet 1959 when shot through the abdomen by a very young Chinese soldier. I could see fear in his eyes as I walked toward
him... it was his fear that pulled the trigger. Strangely the pain was not as intense as we would think it should be. It was simply too fast for
anything other than the force effect on the body to register before my lights went out.
I don't like telling people this next one because in the past 15 years or so it has become Popular to have one of these
1800's:- Native in america. Young and either married or about to be. About the time of the last great Summer Camp near Snake River. The lady and I
were walking in the hills a few miles from camp when we were spotted by four or so white men on horses. They chased us and we run uphill on a path
that led to cliffs above the river. As we approached the edge the men were 20 or 30 feet behind us at full gallop. My lady hesitated and stopped at
the edge, so I pushed her as I leap out. The men and horses followed.
I met that lady again in this life, and she hated me for killing her. Still does despite knowing I had to then.
About 5 to 600 AD:- a Bard in England, in service to his king. Got to travel around a lot which I loved. This is the life that explains my avatar and
user name. Great memories of then, except for some warring hoards here and there.
Couple of hundred years earlier than the above:- Far north western Scotland in a Pict tribe. We were dark skinned, some of us where very dark almost
black. About age 7, I spoke out of place in a tribe meeting and was given to our 'shaman' to be educated. He taught by Standover tactics. Later when I
taught I also used his methods. My main task ws protector.. like head of the military. Standover tactics was what my dad in this life used on me too..
and so I had to learn how to not follow the trend this time.
I failed to protect my people from northern sea raiders when they arrived overland as I was down from the mountains near the coast seeing our
fishermen. They were using coracles. I asked about whether they had seen any raiders, which they hadn't. On the way back up the mountain range I saw
smoke. When I stepped over the ridge at the top I could see my village in ruins, women and children gone, elders all dead and animals gone for
You can bet I had some emotional baggage over that one for many years.
Okay, that'll do you ..you don't need to know them all.
