Hello, Are You There?


Wednesday morning, I was walking on the beach.  The conditions were exactly what Mike always hoped to see.  As I got to his favorite shark tooth hunting territory, I was remembering how he could spend hours on such a morning scouring up and down that smallish stretch of beach.

I have found teeth before, but I was never one of the dedicated hunters.  As I walked along, I spied a small shark's tooth and picked it up.

Sorry about the quality.



Since Mike and I continue to chat, I said, "It would nice of you to toss a big one up at my feet.  You know how how I love a sign."

Don't judge until you have been there.  I really am not nearly as crazy-whacko as I may sometimes sound.

And guess what:

  1. Cool! If you want to talk to Mike, you go right ahead. In your shoes I think I would want to too. And I love it that he "responds".

  2. I think you got a quick response to that request! I have often talked to loved ones who have passed, and I've asked for help. Many times, I see their intervention! So, let no one stop you from such conversations!

  3. Beautiful Olga! I had this same experience finding a sand dollar on the beach; I really felt it was because of Jim and how he knew I loved beach combing! I talk to him all day long.....out loud! It helps me get through some sad days. Thank you for sharing this sweet post! I know hope his presence there with those shark teeth gave you great comfort and joy!

  4. I am laughing with glee here. You and Mike had the perfect relationship since he still brings gifts from afar. I would not laugh AT you, but WITH you.

  14. It's good that you and Mike are still in touch. And not at all unusual, I don't think.
