And when I awoke I could still feel the cold Winter chill across the back of my neck. Thoughts of the barn still linger. I wish I had the forethought to go inside.
And when I awoke I found that I was alone. The mourners in the dream had moved along. They'd gone back to their homes, gone back to their fake lives on Facebook. It was time to leave that place myself and get on with my day. The sun is meant to rise in half an hour.
And when I awoke I found these fences had appeared to come to me not as a symbol of restrictions but rather as a challenge, a new stream to cross, a new fence to jump. I must remember to wear my good running shoes today.
And when I awoke I instantly wondered what had become of the man that was standing on the catwalk and who was suddenly no longer there. Had he moved on and left to be with his family ? Had he simply crouched down to tie his shoe and was no longer visible ? Had he jumped ?
And when I awoke I was relieved to know that Mary, Leonard and Dobbs were not really dead. In fact I had never even met them to begin with. Maybe it's time to seek some new friends.
And when I awoke I knew that the molten steel had stopped flowing. The pipes were silent. The blast furnace no longer blasted. What now America ?
"And when I awoke I could piece together what the crowd in the dream had been yelling. 'The damned fool thought he could he fly !' They repeated their mantra as a way of establishing and reinforcing their superiority over 'the damned fool' not out of concern for the man or with any sense of empathy. For the record, the 'damned fool' could not fly. "
And when I awoke the premier was over, the crowds had gone back to their homes, the starlets had boarded their flights back to Hollywood and the small town had returned to being just another small town for yet another day.
And when I awoke I realized the train had once again left the station without me. There would be no more departures today. My ticket was now expired. Further explorations would have to wait a little longer.
