A Dream I Had Last Night
I had this really cool dream last night... I don't remember all of it, but the part I remember starts with me watching some sort of stage performance. And these ridiculously muscular guys (like the guys who were in the movie 300), came out on stage and were strutting around, and then the spotlight came to rest on one of them who initially looked really muscular but was actually pretty fat - and hairy.
(This isn't the cool part of the dream). After the stage performance, I was walking around and there was some kind of restaurant, or just a booth from a restaurant, backstage. At the table was someone who I recognized as a friend, but I didn't know who it was. Once I sat down though, I realized that it was my cousin Megan.
Megan passed on, rapidly and unexpectedly, a few years ago. She shows up in dreams from time to time, but I hadn't talked with her in a dream for a very long time. I think she shows up as a guide, and as a comfort, to let me know that things are okay, and that she's okay, because I miss her pretty frequently, especially at family holidays.
