Dear Dr. Jeff and Jody,
In 1976, when I was
27 years old, I had a near death experience
(NDE). After accidentally driving my motorcycle off a 20-foot cliff in
northern California, I was rushed to the St.
Mary's Hospital Emergency Ward in Reno,
Nevada and pronounced dead on arrival.
course the two of you, of all people, will understand the nature of what
transpired next; I have perused your web site and listened to snippets
of your interviews. It will probably be no surprise whatsoever that
during the two hours and fifty-four minutes I remained clinically dead
in the hospital and later in the morgue, I spent 155 active and
healthful years creating art and architecture on "the other side."
The paradise I found myself in was intimately familiar. I also
immediately recognized my deceased grandmother who was there, although
she had transitioned from life as we know it some thirteen years before
I was born.
of this took place the way it did because I had come into the world in
1949 with a vivid recollection of my eternal existence in a place I call
"Home World." Thus, I was not afraid. From the time I was 3-years old, I
had been drawing and painting landscapes of this idyllic place.
Only when a hospital orderly began zipping me up in a body bag
in a cold storage locker, did I take a renewed breath of life back into
my physical body and resume my life on Earth. To this day, I continue to
render artistic images and architectural
concepts that I originally recorded as memory in Home World.
at least 8 million people are reported to have had some kind of
near-death experience, few have the artistic ability to bring forth 2-
and 3-dimensional representations of what they know and what they
experienced. Colorful first-hand images
of the places and events described on your web site seem to be
conspicuously missing to someone like me, who has a God-given ability to
render these representations with a true sense of joy and delight.
As one of the rare individuals who not only had a near death experience,
but who also came into the world with a unique artistic gift, I would
love to share my paintings and sculptures with the world you have hailed
to your doorstep. Please access my web site at
and let me hear back from you. I trust you will agree that a picture
speaks a thousand words.
Till then becomes now. . .
Love and blessings,
