Ned’s Women: A Fractured Love Story
Tell us about some of the ingenious methods you used to try and survive. And introduce us to Bob and Emily. Initially, I was so despondent I thought this is where I am going to die, so I wanted to write a message to my wife. In my pocket, I found a piece of paper. But as I watched it travel on the current, I realized this was going to be my savior because all currents lead to land. I kept following the current, swimming breast-stroke, trying to keep my head above water. I created a play list in my head of happy songs. I started talking to people. I was running out of energy very quickly.
I had nothing left so my brain said: Form a company. I made my mouth Bob. My left nostril was Hillary, my sales director. My right nostril was Emily. She was marketing. I started having these board meetings with them.
How do we get Bob to safety? I was going a bit mad at this stage but it worked. Emily, in marketing, was responsible for keeping the company buoyant. It kept my mind occupied, away from the pain.

Tell us about the Virgin Mary and some of your other visions. I saw the Virgin Mary in this cloud.
It was after 12 hours. There was this downpour of rain. I got lots of water in my mouth then the rain disappeared and there was the Virgin Mary. She was so real. Are you a sign? Is this my demise? Do I say my goodbyes? Later, I saw a Dutch East India schooner. I could hear the rigging creaking, guys on ladders down the side of the boat. They even spoke to me. What did you say? I just stopped being a churchgoer. My church is in the ocean. I was berating God for that because I was convinced I was going to die.
It was all his fault. I cannot even repeat the language I used.
