Dream Conversation

Do you ever have a dream where you have a wonderful conversation with someone...? Someone who has either passed away or who you haven't seen/talked to in a long time? Someone who you've been thinking about lately, who you have things you'd like to say to but would probably never (either due to fear of sounding corny or crazy)?

I usually have these conversations with my friend Sarah who passed away 2 1/2 years ago. I feel as though they are visits from her and I treasure them. I REALLY think that she is communicating with me from the other side and I am grateful for them.

Last night I had a long wandering conversation with an old friend. Someone I haven't TALKED to in at least 15 years. It was so much fun. We wandered all these weird dream landscapes and relived so many memories. I was able to tell him so many things I've wanted to tell him lately and it was just so nice to say everything 'out loud.' So much so that I'm sure this dream must've affected him too.

haha! I know, that is crazy, but I'm going to go with it. I know this is a conversation that is unlikely to be repeated in the 'real world' so I will accept it for what it is. A lovely dream that left me feeling very content this morning.

Also - 11 hours in bed is a really REALLY good thing.

I truly believe that we do have these conversations and they are not of this world. If I didn't believe that, I would have offed myself long ago. They are to be cherished.
