Family Dreams, New York Dreams


I had two sets of wild and crazy dreams last night. The 1st one involved by brother Pat. I had receiving one of talking texts that his girlfriend was pregnant. Firstly I was surprised that he had used technology to inform me of this event. Secondly I was excited for him to be having a child at age nearly 60. I was in a house in NYS when this occurred. There was deep snow all around the house. It mat have been the house he owns on his property in NYS. Joanne showed up, and told me that, yes, his girlfriend Maxine was pregnant. I believe that they were having a girl. As far as I know, he does not have a girlfriend named Maxine. My sister did tell me that my mother was not happy because they weren’t married. Just like my mother!

The other dream involved taking a boat ride down the Hudson River, a submarine(!), to get to get to a benefit given by the New York City Ballet. Some of my friends and I, as well as some dancers wanted to make a Mexican dish with beans, cheese, peppers, rice, bread, and baked, then served in a hard taco shall. Other dancers and teams made other dishes. The show was like a dinner show, where people watched the show and ate. I was paired with Merrill Ashely, who was one of Sabrina’s favorite dancers, no longer dancing now. She had a young daughter who was dancing. We mixed up our dish which was wonderful, just in time for the show. The boat came into the picture because on the way down to NYC, a little boy had gotten burned on the hot metal of the submarine on his face. Then after the show, we all took a ride on the submarine around Manhattan. The same like boy was there. We could see the fluke tails of whales in a small wallfall in the river.

There was a painting to be auctioned off to raise money for the Ballet painted by a famous artist. It beautifully captured the intense emotional nature of the particular choreographer’s dance in Merrill’s pose.

Some of the people were quite rude during the show. Which is no surprise. But it was so exhilarating being back in NYC and working with the ballet. I loved that so much. I also miss it so much here in Texas. The ballet is one of my great loves. I truly wish there were a way I could be involved with a ballet or even a theatre company. I love drama and theatre as well as ballet.

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
