Experiences that do not easily fit into other categories

Written by Sue St Clair

We received the following report in December 2013, however the event occurred many years ago:

"My name is (removed for privacy).  I've lived in one of the most isolated dwellings in the mountains of Pennsylvania for 38 years.  For the most part I involve myself in religious studies.  Recently I related an experience I had many years ago to a friend who then googled and found your website.

I'm not drawn by curiosity, nor am I in search of a novel experience.  Often I spent my years barefoot and practicing interior prayer.  The hollow is a very protected place.  It's length is owned by a number of affluent families who basically keep people out.  At any rate I was walking down this hollow along the stream,  my mind was somewhat silent which I think had a lot to do with having had the experience.    I was about 5 or more feet above the stream bed and to my left I saw 2 somewhat humanoid creatures sitting on a log that had fallen across the stream.  I was clearly aware of them before they became aware of me and in the instant they realized I was there, the one sitting closest to me turned instantly into a frog and leapt into the water.  The one sitting to his left was clearly confused and mildly panicked.  In trying to choose his best avenue of escape I watched him morph through 3 animal forms in the span of seconds.  a frog a mouse and finally as a small bird he flew a small circle and disappeared under the bank  Were I an artist I could easily sketch these two entities.  They never stood completely erect but I estimate they were between  9 and 12 inches high Their skin was leathery and brown.  Their noses were long and large in proportion to their frame.  Naked or clothed ???? I cannot say either.

I know what I saw.  And I saw them as clearly as I see anything.   However I don't expect ever to see such things again and I'm sure a search would be futile.  I saw them morph with my eyes and that explains a lot of how they might exist along side us"
