Seymore's Interlude

Sarah is in a terrible car wreck, is in the hospital and is comatose. From her coma she finds a way to go a far, far distance to Seymore's Place and arrives early...unexpectedly....and there meets Seymore, Mesa and Geralty. Seymore's Place is being created and Seymore isn't ready for...not even thinking about...visitors. And much more...Sarah is comatose in the hospital after a serious car wreck. She leaves her body and finds a way to streak to Seymore Place...a place that is out of this world...literally, out of this world. Seymore is building the facility for helping people like Sarah, but it isn't ready yet. Seymore Place, where Sarah lands, is Seymore's creation and he and his assistant, Mesa, and young helper, Geralty, are embarked upon a huge adventure. It is Seymore's job to build a platform that will accommodate the troubled earthlings and send then home again. They have been ending up at other locations and the numbers seems to be increasing. So, Seymore has been charged with building a station that will attract, engage, and redirect the earth dwellers to return home. Since this is a new facility, nothing is actually known about what kind of facility it will be. Seymore must decide and create the atmosphere and method for dealing with the wayward travelers from earth. Geralty, his charming young helper, is delighted and is totally taken with the facilty at Seymore Place. He grows and learns through helping Seymore and Mesa create the facility. He also has enormouse affection for Sarah.Mesa, Seymore's assistant, is a transplant from Mercury's station and is smart, outspoken and kind. She does her best to not influence Seymore...but can't seems to avoid making an impression. The creation of Seymore's Place is a treat for your imagination. It is funny, serious, andI hope you enjoy reading it. Here's a small excerpt from the book: If I had stopped at box one I could still have burned everything, but having read the note I was on the hook and the details and information inside the cardboard boxes took over my life.The take over resulted in Aunt Sarah’s story being written, but not without lots of fits and starts, and hours upon hours of reading her scratchy handwriting in diaries, on note pads and in her professional files; not to mention sorting, filing and preserving mementos, personal drawings and even a small piece of music. The professional files had proved the most helpful in reconstructing the adventure that initiated Sarah’s research into out of body events and other unfamiliar states of reality. The records she had kept of the experiences of patients who had been comatose were fascinating and provided the support I needed to personally get past the you’ve-got-to-be-kidding part of her work. If I had relied only on the other materials, you’d be reading some other author’s book right now. She was a fine psychologist and had done years and years of research into the in-coma experiences of individuals as well as consultation and support for their families. She was quite well known and her work was much admired. Her husband, a medical doctor who specialized in head injuries, had been her main source of clients in the beginning of her work, but later she traveled extensively to both train and consult with other psychologists and doctors about the impact of deep coma. What I discovered from organizing and reading the material in the two boxes was that what I thought I knew about my Aunt Sarah was just a smidgen of the incredible depths of her knowledge and experience. As I gradually began to understand the contents of her collection of “bits and pieces” I knew I wanted to make the contents public. So I began to write. This is the first book of the Seymore series, and the second one is on its way. It was a treat to write and I hope you enjoy reading it.
