Private Writings: Chapter #76 “Do You Know A Secret?”

Tuesday 17th February 2009

Dear Annie,

I really need to to get out of Redcliff. My daughter Alison Porter needs me know. We have no idea if Alison does them survive the crash and not that was a horrible one. I don’t know whether Silvia was mad, there’s something wrong with the car, but there should never have been any crash. The stunt was simple, no complications should have caused this accident. That’s what makes me think someone tampered with the car.

Scottie contacted Sylvia’s mom, and Catherine Leighton is devastated. Her daughter means more than your own life to her. When I first met Catherine, Sylvia was all she could talk about. She wanted her to be famous as an actress and as a good person. She realized Sylvia had something significantly wrong with her mentally. Sylvia was sent to many doctors, many clinics, and no one could help her. Catherine had about given up on Sylvia, and then she heard what Sylvia had done to me, that she had sexually abused me in a brutal way, which drove me over the edge, and caused my mental breakdown.

Catherine got to know me while I was in Redcliff. She wrote to me regularly. I received at least three letters a week from her. We became close through those letters. Then the accident happened. Catherine didn’t know what to do next. She asked for my forgiveness. Both our daughters were in the accident. And neither one might survive. I could feel Catherine in her words. She was crushed that both our daughters might die threw her daughter’s actions. The mere thought that Sylvia was to blame for the accident, that it was actually intentional disturbed Catherine beyond belief. That was the rumor, that Sylvia was suicidal when she went out with the car. Was it her intentions to take my daughter down with her?

I felt for Catherine but I was more concerned with what was happening with Alison, Scottie and my daughter. Alison was in a coma. Her brain was bleeding out. The surgeons were working on her. They at least had not given up hope. As far as Sylvia, it didn’t look good at all. Even though Scottie was angry with Sylvia she and Catherine stayed together at the hospital. The hospital had set up three extra beds in Alison’s private room.

Jamie stayed with them all. I wanted that, so someone could be strong for them all and to temporarily take my place, because I was not allowed out of Redcliff yet. Annie was working with Dr. Virginia McKinnon to find a way of releasing me early. They needed to get a promise from me, that I would return to Redcliff once everything was well with Alison. I knew I would need to return also, to help Angie & a few other ghosts who expected my guidance. For some reason, they could communicate with me, and the same in reverse for me. I could see & hear them as well.

Scottie spent most of her time with Alison so she had Jamie keep in touch with me letting me know all of what was going on. Your angel voice spoke the words that were so soothing to me. My feelings for Jamie and Scottie and Alison held me together just bearly. I could not wait. It was driving me nuts knowing my baby daughter, I know she is full grown, I could not bear to lose her. She brings a tremendous amount of love and meaning into my life. It may sound corny, but she is one of the reasons I wake up every morning and want to stay alive.

If Alison dies, I will want to die with her. It’s as simple as that. She is important in my life and to my life. What reason would I want to live without my daughter, if she is not alive. So she just has to live. The surgeons have to save her. They must save her.

Annie should know soon when I can get out of here and if I can get out of here. I’ve bearly spoken to Scottie since the accident. She must be angry with me for not being there for her. I will run into her arms and hold her until we can both are able to cry for Alison. Crying, the both of us, together. Tears may relieve some of the pressure and the pain.

Dr. McKinnon just came to see me. She had good news. I was getting out of Redcliff this afternoon. I signed the release with the stipulation I would return when all was back in order. That is if anything returns back into any semblance of order. Were there any promises of that. I wanted to feel hopeful.

The car had been ordered to pick me up in a few hours. In order to leave, I would need a little time to gather my things together. I was feeling anxious already and some fear of seeing how Alison looked. I was afraid to see how her body had been crushed in the accident. All I can do now is wait until I see her in a few hours.

I will write to you as soon as I know something Annie. I will be patient if you will be. I will try texting you when I arrive at the hospital and send you any information I find out immediately.

Ciao Ciao!

Love,

Madison

PS. I love you Annie. Thank you for being there. That means more to me than you know.

Has a New Life Been Granted Me?
By Madison Taylor
17th February 2009

Has a new life been born?
Awakening an energy
I forgot
The feelings for

Breathing in air clean
No feelings of expelling pain
Or the ability
To be attracted
To the sustenance
That maintains
Or excels life

I felt death tap my shoulder
Alerting me to its impatience
It was a battle
I felt loss circling my life
Pulling it away from me

Not suicidal
More the feeling of demise
Was on its own
Nothing in me
Was trying to participate

My struggle was to beat it out
Before it could claim
My weakening flesh

Somehow my angels
Pulled together their power
And rescued me
They did
Temporarily
But hopeful

Is the promise within
I will make it beyond
Tomorrow
And the next day
Will care for itself
Building up my defenses
Against
That which wants me
So insistently

Always playing at
Forcing my final
Surrender

I am a survivor
And I don’t
And won’t give in
Or up
Easily

The Known and the Unknown – #6

Just the
POSSIBILITY
of failing
turns into
a dutiful
self-fulfilling
prophecy.

We begin
to believe
that these
personal
restrictions
are in fact,
the fixed
limitations
of the
WORLD.

We go on
to live
our lives,
all the while
wondering
what we
can change
and
how we can
change it.

And we
calculate
and
re-calculate
when
we will
Be ready
to do
the things
we want
to do.

And
we dream.

If only.

If only.

“Comfortably Numb” – David Gilmour – New York Session

“Comfortably Numb”

Hello?
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?

Come on, now
I hear you’re feeling down
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again

Relax
I’ll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon
You are the only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying

When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I’ve got that feeling once again
I can’t explain you would not understand
This is not how I am

I have become comfortably numb

I have become comfortably numb

Okay
Just a little pinprick
There’ll be no more
But you may feel a little sick

Can you stand up?
I do believe it’s working good
That’ll keep you going through the show
Come on it’s time to go

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon
You are the only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying

When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown the dream is gone

I have become comfortably numb
