What a strange story. Imagination makes a huge part in childrens life, but this kind of a story is too complex, in my opinion.
I will have a further look into Agenda 21, but I feel as I have to, for the first time I think on ATS, to come out with a personal story.
When I was a kid about 4-5 years old, I was constantly ill. So my grandma decided to take me for some months to a health resort. She and grandpa rent
an apartment, and the familiy who lived in the house invited us to come with them to the near forest to look for mushrooms.
You have to know something about my granny, shes overprotektive and she never ever let her eyes of me.
Always paying attention. So, she said she does not have a clue about mushrooms, and does not want to risk anything.
They convinced her to make the trip.
I think we were 5 or 6 people there.
I remember, that I found some colorful fethers of an Eurasian Jay. They were beautiful, so I searched for more. I asked grandpa, what kind of bird it
was, but he didn´t know. The nice lady knew it, and I remembered it till now.
I looked to the forest floor, to search for more of this blue fethers and then looked up because it was so quiet.
And nobody was there.
I turned around and didn´t see anyone.
I freaked out. I knew that they were searching for mushrooms and bend down once for a while, but that never lasted for too long.
I screamed for grandma. No reaction. I was again looking to the front, but I was alone.
I had a quick thought about going forward but at the same time, I decided to stay in same place in case they would come back and because of this
panicking feeling where you can´t move. This was such a quick thought.
I again called for granny.
Then for grandpa. And suddenly they stood up. Grandpa first, than grandma and to my left and behind me the others.
But I know that I looked in this places before. I know it.
I know that I grabbed grandpas hand, but he was kind of angry at me. I asked him where they were, but he only said: "Always here."
Grandma was further away then anyone else and it seems that she also searched for mushrooms. What is very strange.
She is and always was so worried about everything!
I´m sure, that it was only a trick, my mind played on me. But to know/hope that it was only an "illusion", does not change that scary memory, and
very vivid repetitive dreams about a star in the sky following us and taking my grandma away. I really hope this things are only a powerfull
imagination of mine as I was a kid.
I´m again sorry for spelling and grammar, hopefully you can make a clue of the things I wrote
