SIDELIGHTS: Keith Varnum once told CA: "I like to write about extraordinary events that I have personally experienced in my life. The events that intrigue me are those that are outside common experience and belief, that cannot be 'rationally' explained within the beliefs of the collective consciousness. These events tend to be ultimately of a spiritual nature, since that is the dimension in which magic, miracles, and grace happen. For power and convincibility, I keep my writings to these events that I have personally witnessed, firsthand."
