Step into My World of Schizophrenia

When you find yourself in a world full of promises, hopes, dreams, and sometimes fantasies only to be caught up in a world of confusion, disappointments, and untruth, you often find yourself holding onto the edge, at times unable to relate, wondering if it’s your last breath, chance, or unforeseen opportunity to make your messed up situation right. As life takes a turn for what we might think is the worst, a change soon comes that puts the pieces to the puzzle in its proper place.

Night Lights over Greeneville

This was never intended to become a book but merely an inquisitive endeavor, or search, to discover what those ‘flashing lights’ were up over the mountains. It was as simple as that. Local people said they had no idea what they were, but that people had seen them over many years and just assumed they were airplanes. Pictures were taken of the flashes and then when the pictures were obtained, the image was cropped around it in close to see what would be revealed. That turned out to be a complete surprise. There were shapes conforming to the way people identify images as being like UFOs should be, but there were a whole lot of strange images doing very strange things that hadn’t been expected. Yes, they are still labeled as UFOs (Unidentified Foreign Objects) but they come with a whole new list of strange happenings, experiences, paranormal events both with new and sometimes with answers to some old questions. The author lets her imagination get away a time or two as she tries to imagine a scenario that could depict what is taking place within a series of pictures. She could be ‘way off’ but it gives a ‘jumping off place’ for others to come up with an answer. Actual pictures… true experiences… hidden things emerging… and information or answers sometimes materialize. It’s all included within the pages of the book and many will find things they’ve never heard of or seen before, but there just also might be things that match something they themselves have seen and tried to explain and now has a picture to show of it. The entire book is for you to think about and then YOU DECIDE.
