You all can think I’m a nutter but my Guardian Angel just saved me. I mean, I just had the scariest yet best experience in well - in almost all my
I ran outside in the dusk-almost-dark to snap some lava pics of Mt. Etna. (Etna is a volcano on the island of Sicily that's erupting at the moment.
Some of you know I have a thread here on ATS
that tracts the progress of her
Anyway - I didn’t take my glasses - I was in a great hurry for the shot before I lost the light.
On the top terrace of the vineyard (my favorite place to capture Etna) - I stood shaping a pic. You know like when you’ve got the camera to your
eye, sizing things up?
Anyway, Etna was in my site and all I had to do was back up just a bit to get out of the line of a tree when...
I felt someone jerk my vest from behind - hard and to the side. I mean I could feel warm knuckles brush against my neck just under my ponytail when
the hand gripped my collar.
I sucked in my breath, looked around - no one was there of course.
Scared me bad. I almost cried it frightened me that deeply.
Then I saw something - and what I saw is still giving me chills.
I was standing right at the lip off the drop off to the lower tier of the land - and in that particular area the drop is a good 15-20 down to jagged
Whatever jerked my collar saved me a night out under the stars with something broken. Or worse.
I’m still shaking.
Ugh! I’m going to go resize those Mt. Etna pics.
I’ll not be back for a while - I need a hot bath or something. I’m a bit freaked. In the mean time share your own life saving stories - ask
questions I’ll get to later - debate away - whatever - knock yourselves out - see ya in a bit.
Also - on the life a my ATS avatar this is not trolling or bs’ing or anything like that. In fact - I'll add what I was thinking earlier is I need
to go thank God I'm not crumpled up with a broken back or dead at the moment!
Added Note II
Here's the pic. I couldn't wait to check it - just in case I caught an orb or something freaky - but this is the shot I took a few minutes before
what I described above.
