|A Bicycle Built for Jim
I have had several dreams now in which Jim has played a major or minor role. I always wake up with a smile on my face when he has put in an appearance in my dreams. The latest one was no more than a snippet, but it had that very real quality which is unmistakable when it occurs in dreams.
I saw Jim very clearly, almost more clearly than I could if I were to see him in my waking consciousness. I was sitting in a large parked car, with the windows open, on a very pleasant tree lined street. It was an absloutely beautiful day. I remember noticing the way the sunlight dappled through the leaves, and there was a slight, pleasant breeze. I was about to go somewhere, but for the moment was just enjoying the beautiful day. Jim rode by on a bicycle. He was on his way to run errands, and would be coming back later. He looked at me through the window very intensely - I will never forget the vision of his face there in the window, crystal clear, as if my senses were heightened - he gave me a broad grin, (even in dreams, he's a real charmer, lol!) and asked me if I wanted him to pick up some film while he was in town. Then he rode off. While I was remembering the dream as I woke up, I was very touched to notice that he was very happy and at peace.
