Trout Fishing, Telepathy and Loss


By Mike Bossy

I am always amazed when I am in family business transition situations by the lack of communication skills on the part of the family members and perhaps me as well. Speaking for myself, I can’t ever remember taking a course related to communications. One of the many things I observe is family members thinking that telepathy is an acceptable from of communication.

I can think of two other telepathy situations. The first is related to my dad, Julien, and I when we went stream fishing for trout. We would arrive at the Otter Creek which ran through our Norwich farm and then proceed on the stream in two different directions. It’s corny but you are really one with nature when you're alone. But I wasn’t alone, I could sense my dad. When we got home, my mom always asked us what we talked about. I always said, "anything and everything. It was awesome."

The second telepathic episode surrounds loss. There have been some recent deaths in my family, and I am still feeling the losses. Jamie Anderson who writes Dr. Who novels is quoted:

“It's all the love you want to give but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.”

So, have you lost the telepathic connection or is it something you did not communicate non-telepathically?
