Just joined today and looking forward to reading around the forum. Not sure how I came upon this site. It reminded me of a time when I was about four years old. We lived, ten of us, parents and eight children then, in the top floor of an old Victorian house. Could not afford a television so had no exposure to that really. I remember one night it seemed there was a lightning storm, which is rare here. I was not sleeping. I remember going to a window - was during the night, early hours of the morning, and looking out, up at the night sky lit up with flashes of light and 'see'ing old 'war planes' flying about shooting at each other. Stayed with me for ages that 'memory,' and to this day I am still not sure what it was. This was the 60s. Over the years I have had dreams of wartime and having been shot - assassinated, perhaps a firing squad. I have a little mark, like a welt, that rises especially after a hot bath, just over the heart. It looks exactly what you'd imagine a bullet hole would look like. I am in my forties now. When I was younger I thought seriously about joining the Airforce. Not sure if there are any connections in any of this or how 'real' it all was. Makes you wonder though. Being raised Christian, I could never get my head around the fact that we were supposed to have our 'eternal destiny' determined by a few years in this world, even those few were/are one hundred years. Oh, forgot to say, I am in Ireland Kev Anyway - nice to be here. Sorry if this is not the place to open a conversation. Just my first post.
