I’ve been having really vivid dreams lately … when I do sleep that is. For whatever reason I’ve woken up at almost exactly 3am every night for the past 2 weeks. I can’t for the life of me figure out why … I go to bed around the same time, get up at the same time, have even tried staying awake late to “tire myself out” and nothing seems to have helped.
That aside, I’ve had recurring dreams about Hobie. Night before last I woke up and realized that I was leaning over the side of the bed looking for her. In my dream, I could hear her but couldn’t find her .. she was softly “growling” the way she would do in her sleep. I always liked to think she was dreaming about chasing prey or something like that. She was a little she-devil diva and expected to be treated like royalty, but she also used to LOVE to go outside every once in a while and chase things. It didn’t matter what it was — from preying on squirrels, chipmunks and birds to chasing off neighborhood dogs.
It never ceased to amaze me how fearless (and territorial! LOL) she was.
Anyways, I woke up saddened because at first I couldn’t find her, then realized that she had already passed away. Even though it’s been several months, I still find myself lying in bed at night and listening for the pitter-patter of her little paws on the kitchen floor, or moving around gingerly in the dark so that I don’t step on her.
Old habits die hard, I guess.
Like I said before … I’ll be glad when dream contents become as everyday a commodity as say, soap.
Mr. Sandman, I’d like some Tuscany Villas for next week, please. :cool:
