An Unfamiliar Road

Have you ever dreamt of a familiar place, but it’s a little different? Maybe you’re dreaming of your hometown or even the house you grew up in. Maybe it’s a road you’ve driven down two thousand times or somewhere you’ve pulled from the furthest recesses of your mind. Wherever it is, something is amiss.

I had one of those dreams a few nights ago. And what happened in the dream isn’t what really matters, it’s what I was left with when I woke. A dark, brooding feeling lingered keeping me on edge for days.

Is this sense of foreboding a sign of something to come?

This morning I sat down to write an update for my website. I pilfered through my files and found this unpublished blog I wrote in January. As I read it, those dreadful feelings returned and I can tell you that that dream was a sign. I guess my subconscious knew something that I didn’t.

My life has changed in ways I would never have expected. It’s been a difficult year and I had to make many tough decisions. Are they for the better? Did I make the right choices? I guess time will tell. As for now, I’ll walk this unfamiliar road with the hopes that health, happiness, and love will accompany me.

  1. Hi, Anne. It does sound rather spooky, but I hope the premonition is of very good things to come. Especially this time of year where we look back a bit, but mostly look forward to the new year and all of the potential and promise that it might hold. Here’s hoping it’s a great year for both of us, my dear friend. Sorry I haven’t been by these pages very often. Have a marvelous Thanksgiving week. *raises glass of white zin* Cheers!
