Ryan Eggold and Freema Agyeman in New Amsterdam

Hilary and I recently started watching the New Amsterdam TV series starring Ryan Eggold.  We really liked him in The Blacklist.   Last night we watched Episode 4 of Season 1, Boundaries.   Oncology specialist, Dr. Helen Sharpe (played by Freema Agyeman) is performing the most difficult task of explaining to young Tianna, with her devastated parents looking on, that her cancer has returned.  Here is a link to the powerful scene that unfolds.

What Is It Like When You Die?

I don’t think anyone can really know what it’s like until our time comes, but I must say, based on everything we’ve learned and experienced over the last ten plus years, Dr. Sharpe’s explanation is spot on.   Jimmy has gone above and beyond, literally and figuratively, to let us know he’s OK and close by. We’ve written and shared a lot about what he’s done and masterfully orchestrated—messages delivered directly to us, through his friends, and by people who never met him. 

The veil between here and there, life and after-life, is very thin and readily traversable from both sides.  We can communicate with one another, albeit a different form of “talking.”

As you know, we’ve also explored and undertaken some less-traditional forms of healing through our work with mediums, psychics, shamans, Native Americans, and others.  Jimmy has never failed to come through to us, unambiguously and incontrovertibly.


This Sunday, for my Father’s Day present, Hilary and Brittany are taking me to a four hour workshop led by the medium Fleur (https://www.mediumfleur.com/) on the Fundamentals of Spirit and Intuition.   I know, this directly conflicts with the final round of the U.S. Open golf tournament, but how could I pass up an opportunity like this.

Jimmy will  be right over there-on the other side of the room.    

Happy Father’s Day, Dads
