Dream Chronicles – A Reassurance

A History In Review            A Lover’s Quarrel            Home Invasion

Again, napping on my couch.  I’m seeing a pattern here in that all my vivid dreams occur when I take mid-day naps on my couch by myself.

I find myself in a home.  It’s not familiar in real life, but in my dream it was a family member’s home that I was very used to.  The details of the home are lacking, as my attention was instead of my deceased family member, who was standing perfectly healthy and chatting right in front of me.  For a second, nothing seemed out of place.  We carried on a casual conversation before getting into a vehicle similar to an RV, with the driver’s seat at the front end of a small walkway of chairs.  It was just me and my family member in the vehicle, and as he began driving, I slowly felt memories of his death and funeral creeping back in.  I wanted to hug him, but was afraid to.  Somewhere deep down, I knew that if I tried to touch him, he would be gone.

But I couldn’t ignore the elephant in the room.  I asked him, “how are you here?”

He didn’t seem to understand my question.  So I put it more bluntly.  “You died.  How is this possible?”

And he hit me with an explanation that I would’ve never imagined.  He explained to me that he is always available.  He explained that his death and funeral had happened, that part was and will always be real.  He stated that he wasn’t completely dead, but he wasn’t really alive either.  He can come back when his family and loved ones really need help or really need him.

Conversations With My Boyfriend

Children say the darnedest things…

Anyone who is a parent or has small children in their family can attest to this.  Bill Cosby did a whole show dedicated to it.  There’s a very entertaining Twitter feed that has been turned into a book called Preschool Gems full of nothing but the out-loud thoughts of young children.  Even my Facebook news feed is full of status updates from parents recapping hilarious scenarios and conversations with their children of either funny things their kids say or things they have to say to their kids that they would’ve never imagined they would be saying.  I enjoy reading these and made a mental note long ago that, should I become a mother one day, I would keep a running log of all the cute, funny, and often times quite wise musings that I will inevitably bear witness to.

But then I realized I didn’t have to wait.  I have been blessed with the companionship of a very high energy and entertaining person.  While he is 30 years old, he is very youthful in both appearance and demeanor.  His sense of humor is larger than he is himself and with his Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, it is not uncommon to end up in very strange, confusing, and random conversations.  Give him a couple beers, and that scale is multiplied.  I know what you’re probably thinking.  That doesn’t sound like fun.  Where is this going?  What in the hell does this have to do with Bill Cosby or children?
