Sometimes we can stumble across alternate locations/realities during the most mundane daily activities . . . like a regular walk through the park.
Evelyn of San Juan, Puerto Rico took a morning walk through a park along a long, narrow bridge that runs over a lagoon. She saw large iguanas on the mangrove branches and on the top of a cement structure lazing in the sun. Small ducks, herons, and fish were enjoying the water. Between the wildlife and a just-right breeze, Evelyn was feeling very grateful for this beautiful world.
She glanced down at her watch, noting it was 8:05 a.m. Suddenly, she realized that she was in a stretch that she’d never seen before. She marveled at how that could be when she walks the park every morning. This new section had mangrove trees that crossed over the park and went right through to the other side, forming a sort of mangrove dome. Evelyn says, “It was beautiful, and I was enraptured!”
But she could not come to terms with how she could have never seen it before. When the “mangrove dome” stretch of her walk ended, she checked her watch again. It still indicated 8:05 a.m.!
Tracing her steps back, the mangrove dome was nowhere to be seen. The park was as always.
