JOURNAL — TAPE #12, SIDE #2
Q: Mark Gordon Russell (interviewer)
(TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: THE FOLLOWING WAS RECORDED IN MY HOTEL ROOM ON THE NIGHT OF SUNDAY, AUGUST 13TH. I BEGIN LETTING OUT SOME OF THE EMOTIONS I’VE BEEN SUPPRESSING SINCE I BEGAN WITNESSING THE PHENOMENA.)
Q: Tonight Sunday at the restaurant in Coalgate, first Maxine’s chair bent inward and pressed into her back. She thought someone was trying to pass but then she looked around and there was no one there. And just as she started talking about it my bench moved. I said. “Either that’s Michael or there’s an earth tremor.” She said, “This is Oklahoma. We don’t have earth tremors.” We went to the house and talked. We were discussing Michael and finally, all of a sudden, water appeared on my pants. It was his way of saying that he was there. I thought that maybe some water had leaked out of my Evian bottle in my bag but the cap was on securely. When I got home I did another test and there’s no way the water could have gone through my Land’s End bag. They’re not porous bags. Need I say more?
(TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: THE REMAINDER OF THIS TAPE SIDE WAS LEFT BLANK. MY FLIGHT WAS SCHEDULED LATER THAN I HAD ORIGINALLY THOUGHT YET I MISSED MY FLIGHT FOLLOWING A DELAY CAUSED BY A MALFUNCTION OF WELLINGTON FOTO CENTER’S PROCESSING MACHINE IN ADA. THE ATTENDANT TOLD ME THIS HAD NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. I DIDN’T NOTICE ANYTHING UNUSUAL IN ANY OF THE PHOTOS. WHEN I RETURNED TO LOS ANGELES, NOT ONLY DID I DISCOVER THE SPIRIT VOICES AND UNATTRIBUTED SOUNDS ON THE TAPES, PHENOMENA CONTINUED TO OCCUR AND THESE EVENTS ARE DESCRIBED IN FOLLOWING TRANSCRIPTS.)
