To Nile and everyone, reading Nile’s piece inspired a dream I had the same night after I’d edited the piece. I dreamed I was a fairy, with a group of friends who were as well (including one person – former best friend Shari – whom I’ve lost track of and can’t find in “real” life).
We were all colorfully dressed, and “good folk,” if you will. Pure, kind beings, but we were being pursued by an evil group of people who wished to do us some form of evil. Either that, or by capturing us hoped we’d do their bidding or give them power to do unspecified “bad” things.
We’d get captured then escape, time after time. Once we were hiding on the shelf of a very old-fashioned looking shop, ducking behind some sort of antiques (decorations?) while the baddies were looking for us. When they left we flew out.
The dream ended with the group of us flying over a generic big city, having escaped the latest onslaught, happily thinking we were free, for now, but still worried we’d be pursued again.
Weird, eh? Obviously Nile’s piece had a big impact on me to wind up in my dream. And I’ve had some WILD ones lately, too! Some involving other super powers, though in one case I was a nefarious baddie, myself…
It’s always the quiet ones you have to watch. A cliche, but oh so true! :-p
