The pain that felt like my spine had explode thrust me into this place. It was dark, there is a silhouette like a structure pole in front of me to the left. There were other people around me but in the darkness I could not see them. The atmosphere felt like I was in a war or battle. I felt as if I was inside not out in the open, yet I could not sense any walls. This was all my mind could process for almost instantly I received another excruciating pain in the right side of my back around my kidney. My mind asked if I had been stabbed. I knew I was dying. Jolted awake by the pain, I lay there.
I awoke in a dream
I didn’t know it was a dream until I awoke
I don’t usually dream. I sleep lightly. Gee, if that’s what dreaming when your asleep is like I’m glad I don’t usually dream.
My awake dream is to jump off the grid. The goal is to live on a boat. Use a local Marina for the first 2 years while we cut our teeth on small trips at first, up and down the Australian coastline extending further north and south. Then off island hopping to the east and anywhere else we find ourselves.
MM shakes his head when he looks at all the crap I have. “How will you ever downsize and cope with living on a boat?” “I don’t know” I say smiling back. “I just will.” “But you have 3 kinds of shampoo and three kinds of conditioner in the shower. That’s 6 bottles! You know you can only have one shampoo and one conditioner on the boat and they have to be put away in a cupboard when you’re not using them?” “Yeah babe, it wont be a problem” I reply.
