I had a dream recently and it was so meaningful and so illuminating I just need to share it. Plus I want to be able to revisit whenever I need to, and I know I’ll need to.
Bill and I were cruising down the highway. As usual he was driving. We were talking and laughing and all of a sudden we were sailing off a cliff! Neither of us saw it coming. First I screamed but when I noticed Bill wasn’t screaming I looked over and he was asleep. I tried waking him up but he wouldn’t wake up. (I always tear up at this point.) In true dream-style, the descent went on for a long time. I was panicking because I didn’t know what was going to happen, but then a calm came over me as I realized there was nothing I could do about it. It was a Hollywood-rough landing on a paved road and we rolled into a town I had never seen before. Everything was new to me. I left Bill in the car and got out to see where we were. The rest of the dream is fuzzy but I know I met new people and they did things differently in this town. Somehow I knew this is where I would live now. I also knew it would take me some time to get used to this new place, but I felt certain that things were going to be okay.
Then I woke up. And cried.
