I had a dream the other night...

I traveled back in time to get myself as a baby.  I found myself and picked my little self up.  My little self looked at me and smiled a bit.  And my big self began to cry.  I was also looking for a woman named Melinda Gates.  Melinda Gates is Bill Gate's wife, however, I think that name was in my head because I listen to NPR and an "ad" that I always hear is that funding comes from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  So I believe the woman I was looking for was not in fact, Melinda Gates but someone who is as rich in life as she is in her philanthropic ways (or so I hear).  I was looking for her because I was certain she could stop me from eating hooks.  I could not figure out why I was eating hooks but I knew I was older (teens maybe??) and I could feel myself eating these hooks.

That was the "whoa"est dream I've ever had.


  1. I put a hook through and Almond Joy candy bar to show my counselor how I felt about dealing with my parents. It is a powerful symbolism of the negative impact of their behavior.

  2. LSV,
    Oh my. There's a lot of scary imagery there. I want to cry for your baby self too. And though I'm not Melinda Gates, I hope you don't swallow any of those hooks. :)
    Whoa is right!

  3. Scary indeed. And profoundly moving I think.
