This is the story of Helen Littrell's daughter Marisa and her odd college roommate Raechel - two young women who did not fit it - one legally blind and needing assistance, and the other with a strange diet, but seemingly no history at all. This fascinating story, written from experience and years of research as documented in Part II, crackles like science fiction but is true. It answers two important questions: Why haven't aliens landed on the White House lawn, and why haven't they taken over the Earth? Marisa's story invites you to expand your vision, to see the world, and ultimately the universe, through the eyes of a blind girl, her mother, and most strangely, through Raechel's Eyes.
Helen was born and raised in rural New York. She attended a one-room country school during elementary school. Years later she took a few courses in creative writing and law at various junior colleges. Through a series of coincidences, hard work, self-study, and determination she became one of the first certified medical transcriptionists in California. Since then she has authored six medical reference books and is currently a freelance editor for a large medical publisher. In addition she operates her own home-based medical transcription business in rural southern Oregon. In honor of her daughter she devotes much of her spare time to a need largely unmet, that of sewing and donating head coverings for cancer patients as well as designing and distributing patterns for these hats. As a child, she saw lights in the night sky near her house, said by locals to be the aurora borealis. She never once believed that these pulsating red, blue, and green lights that appeared in various formations hovering in the sky, then shooting toward the ground, emitting a shimmering glow, and always in the same place at the same time each evening, were northern lights. After each of these experiences, she came away with a powerful sense of peace. Since then, and continuing to the present, Helens life has been filled with instances of precognition, paranormal events, and synchronicities which she believes have occurred to show her the way to a much broader life experience than most people could ever imagine, including the belief that we are not alone in the universe.
