Synopsis: Collection of six stories: Tell Us Everything ? A girl?s piercings create a connection that allows her to see truths and broadcast them over the air in a limited area.... a wonderful piece. It Was Me (I) ? While driving home one night, the narrator looks in the next car ? and sees himself from 30 years ago. Is it really him, or just a crazy coincidence? Then other coincidences start to show. The Notebook ? Two people connect over their losses, brought together by an unbelievable confession and a mysterious notebook hidden in an attic. The ending has a twist you?ll never see coming. The Strange Case of James Kirkland Pilley ? ... a man who has a home at the edge of a park decides that the old, swampy pond needs to be cleaned out and a new, more pristine lily pond made in its place. But as the water is removed from the area, strange happens commence. What is the source of the strangeness, the sense of unease, and the odd behavior of those who live in the area? A Match Made in Heaven ? I found the ideas presented evocative and thought-provoking. There are questions of consciousness, how to truly access God (in whatever form that power takes for you). Like all of his books, I highly recommend this terrific story from Randy Attwood. By Pain Possessed ? This story is about pain - those who enjoy dealing it, who enjoy feeling it, those who would rather avoid the whole thing... Deeper, there is an undercurrent of facing up to your fears and becoming a stronger person for it, but also a warning about becoming that which you hate.
