  • Its 2:37am, minds racing, cannot sleep...counting late evening chimes

    Thoughts of Maine, hiking National Acadia Park - DEATH

    Evening before...B&B, pink champagne, feelings of a princess, puts downs and negativity

    Morning, calmness, "what am I doing here?"

    Breathtaking views, arrogance, lack of respect for Mother Nature’s creations, immaturity

    Unaware, jumping, shocked - a 70' drop, boulder beach, crashing waves


    Seeing your face, never forgetting that sound, no sight of you


    Screaming at the people near - call for help

    Adrenaline, sliding down a steep mountain, waves crashing like thunder, swimming, risky moves

    Finding you - barely breathing, blood splattered like a cracked egg - "how did I get here?"

    Coast guard, Maine Officials, Maine Marine Patrol, observers

    "How long does it take you, I am here in what seemed minutes - did I fly, was I brought here by angels?"

    Singing, pleading for your life, crying, overwhelming disbelief

    Watching the coastguard part


    Overhearing on officials radio - you passed, lifeless

    People talking, heartfelt gestures, going through motions - "what am I doing here?"

    Packing your things, finding your prescriptions, again disbelief - anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, and impotence...LIES

    Crows in the tree tops

    Meeting your family, funeral, listening to your priest, hearing your reality, your lies, "is it police mob?"

    "What am I doing here?"

    Remembering my dream, 6 months prior; "premonition?"

    Frightened of myself

    "What am I doing here?"

    Its 3:33am
