I wonder how many people believe in Bigfoot? I would think that a majority of people probably believe in ghosts. I heard not that long ago that about half of Americans believe in ufo's. So how many believe in what I would consider 3rd on the list of unknowns, Sasquatch? I think most will accept and even get excited when you talk about ghosts. My experience has been that many will listen when you talk about ufo's. However, when the subject of sasquatch, or other unknowns, comes up most that I've talked to will look for a reason to leave the conversation. Why is that? I think we only go as far as our awareness will take us. When we continue to expose ourselve to more and more, our awareness expands and seems to open the door to other possibilities. It may actually be a conscious shift in the brain. I only say this because it has been my experience. There are things I thought people were making up a few years ago before this show, now it just seems easier to accept the possibility that many many things could exist. Perhaps it is ego?
This show has been great for my growth, in the last few years I have talked to several people who have had sasquatch experiences, many have taken place all over Upper Michigan. Even though as a kid I believed that these things existed, if I would have thought they could have been in my backyard, well, I don't think I would have ever been outside after dark! Yikes! From what I've been able to gather there are many up here that have witnessed these beings, whatever they may be. Are they physical or spirit? Do they have special abilities that allow them to go undeteched? Are they just a form or man/ape that hasn't been discovered yet? Can you call them to you? What, are you nuts?
About a month ago a friend told me of a sighting by 3 men in an area some 20 miles from here, this in turn helped me decide to approach the subject this week. It's really weird because one of the men is getting married and I just met his fiance at a bridal show about a month and half ago. Strange coincidence? Are there no coincidences?
At the beginning of this interview is audio from Allan Berry, a journalist who recorded some strange sounds back in 1972. This was taken from another interview. The stories I tell take place all over Upper Michigan. One is as close as a few miles from where I presently live. Yikes! My feeling is if these things do exist, ard they are here, then they are everywhere where it is wooded. Sleep well tonight...
