Sunday, September 12
Today my thoughts will be on times we have dreams and what they can do. The reason I picked this particular subject is because I just woke from a nap in which I had an almost nightmarish dream. Usually after breakfast and before lunch, I take a short nap.
Today for some reason, this nap brought with it dream that I was to move out of my home of over 30 years. I was to move back to a location we stayed in the past that was absolutely horrible. This should have been the first clue to this being a dream. I would have never chosen to move back this location.
As for the location, I will not disparage it. Because I did not like it there does not mean other people don’t like it. I am quite sure that there are many people who love living in this town and vicinity.
In this dream, I found that I had a hard time waking up. When I did wake up, I finally realized that I was not living in the trailer that was supposed to had been moved up there. All my stuff was still in Natchitoches. To tell the truth, that was where I wanted to be.
The only thing I managed to bring with me was my camera. But at this point, I was not in the mood for taking photos. One thing led to another that led to even other events.
In short, this dream made me realize that I am happy with what I have now and I do not want to change. That, I don’t care what other people have. Though I do not have loads of money in the bank, I do have my riches around me. My main one being my mother followed by my two brothers.
I have my camera and computer. Then there are the roof over my head, the floor under my feet as well as the walls about me to protect me from the weather. Indeed, I am rich in that I do have access to amenities of water and electricity as well.
But, I feel that if I had been deprived of my toys and my shelter, that I will be able to make it through life. In the dream, I refused to give up my hopes and desires. In my awaken state, I feel the same. I will survive. I see no other choice but to survive. There are too many things out there that I want to do.
