John Cullum and Em have fun wondering how an alien would react to things we take for granted. Em figures an alien would be bewildered by people with cell phones -- a crowded street full of people talking out loud to themselves.

John contemplates how an alien would react if he saw hundreds of people seated in a large area, looking up at platform --watching a play being performed.

Out of the blue, John Cullum recalls a spooky, nerve-wracking, scary incident -- how long it took he doesn't remember, but what happened to him felt like an hour. He was onstage, starring in "Deathtrap" on Broadway one night, when a guy, seemingly an ordinary member of the audience, acted like an alien. The man got up from where he was sitting, walked down the center aisle of the theater, climbed the stage steps, and joined John and the cast on the stage in the middle of scene.

How John and the other cast members reacted, how tricky it was to get this very strange guy off the stage, is a very special, unusual stage-story experience.

I think reproduction and childbirth would be interesting for them.

Everything else would be antiquated. I believe they are far more advanced then us. They will look at us as we look at silent b & w films.


But I feel they would observe us and wish to 'fix' us, but know they cannot alter our timeline.

Perhaps they would wonder about our tattoos and hair.

Interesting subject matter....

Love and light,

Lol! What a great blog today about aliens visiting earth. I really enjoyed John's onstage appearance of an alien during a play. He handled this very well. It reminds me of the classic movie "The Day the Earth Stood STill" with Patrica Oneal or E.T. Thanks for sharing a lovely video! kam

EM & JOHN, how delightful this blog video came out! Reminds me of something I learned in a weekly Bible class....the preacher led it, he was a fabulous teacher, he welcomed questions, & comments & often they would come up. After that 'track' was followed, he'd say, well we got off on the 'rabbit trail' & then he'd bring it back to where the lesson material left off & begin from there again.

So the 'aliens' subject went on the 'rabbit trail' & then John's play experience also took him on the 'rabbit trail'. It all turned out FINE, just FINE as we all loved following along with it.

I hope to discuss 'aliens' a little more as time & your blog may reveal that. Literally, I truly believe there are 'angels' among us at always a possibility that literally there may be some 'aliens' among us too.

Luv to you both. I'm @grammakaye on twitter.
