(The entire story of Libby to date can be found here.)
Libby swung her legs around onto the bench and layed down eyes closed to deliberate as to how to proceed. In spite of the intimidating voice, she felt drawn to this spirit or guide or whatever inner wisdom was in the universe of her mind. Admittedly surreal, she needed to know more.
The beautiful hill was immediately in view with her "guide" beckoning her to come to him. She started up the hill, touching the flowers with her hands, inhaling the fragrance, engaging all of her senses. When she reached the top, she saw the same bench she was lying upon with her tuxedo-ed gentleman not far from her.
"Why are you so scary?" she asked him.
He broke his facade and chuckled. "Well I had to get your attention. I do speak with wisdom which carries some authority in my voice, I suppose. You needn't be afraid of me, Libby."
She walked closer to him gazing at his wise elderly face noticing his kind eyes. She felt a tingling of energy approaching him. Raising her hand, she softly touched the side of his face and immediately felt a rush of love like nothing she had ever felt before. Tears welled in her eyes. He placed his hands on her shoulders asking if she was still afraid of him.
"No," she said wiping away her tears. “Who are you? What are you? I have so many questions.”
“All in due time,” he answered in a softer kinder tone.
