Was This The Sixth Sense Or A Coincidence?

Is there a so called Sixth Sense? In this experience from my cuttings Colin Polhill acted on an impulse, but why? A coincidence or synchronicty, some sort of message from someone dying, telepathy perhaps ... who knows for sure.

I went to Winchelsea Primary School, on the South Coast [of England], in about 1949. The headmistress at the time was Miss Lilah Christina Smith, who encouraged me in my studies.

I last met Miss Smith in Rye High Street in 1953. I never saw her again. I eventually left the area and moved to Kent.

On June 30, 1983, I suddenly thought of Miss Smith and could not get her out of my mind.

On impulse I drove to Winchelsea, determined to see her. On arrival, I realised that I didn't know where Miss Smith lived and so I went to the Post Office to ask for directions.

The Postmaster asked me if the woman I was seeking was a retired teacher.

When I told him that Miss Smith used to teach me, he explained that she had died that very same day in Hill House Hospital in Rye, East Sussex.

  1. Impulses like this often seem to be about synchronicity. It sounds like Colin tuned in!

  2. What a shame they didn't get to talk one last time. But in a way, they did have a final communication.
