Have you ever had a dream about someone in your life who has died? You know--where they sort of show up and interact with you? I have, and most times, my conscious mind will butt in and think to itself "Hey, you're supposed to be dead! What are you doing here?" I wake up from those dreams and view them as "visits" from my family and friends who have passed. (Go ahead--roll your eyes.)
The other night, though, I had a dream about someone who was once in my life who is still alive! It wasn't just a regular dream, either. It felt like one of those dead-person-visit dreams, in that I haven't seen this person for years, and we haven't communicated with each other in a very long time. His appearance had changed somewhat, but the demeanor was there, and the way he used to make me feel when he looked at me was still there. (NO, it wasn't a dirty dream!) I've had dreams about this person before, but never one that felt almost like a psychic outreach--like this person was reaching into my brain and talking to me. OMG I sound like a psycho, don't I?
I'm sure this dream could be analyzed in any number of ways, and I'm sure you'll all tell me that I have unresolved issues. And yeah, I get that. I'm just wondering if any of you have had this sort of dream as well? It was peaceful...sort of a silent visit between old friends.
On another note entirely, have y'all ever dyed your own hair? I'm a convert to ION from Sally's Beauty Supply. This stuff is AWESOME. It's plastered all over my head at this moment, in fact. It doesn't stink, it doesn't sting, and it leaves my hair silky and shiny. The best part is that you buy it in bulk, sort of. I bought a tube of the color, and a bottle of the activator, and I think I got four or five colorings out of it. I'm now working on my second tube of coloring, with the same bottle of activator. I used to spend about $11/month on L'Oreal hair color, and now I think it averages out to about $4/month, with a much more natural looking result. (And let me tell ya'...I am GRAY beyond my years, people!)
Sorry about the random weirdness of this post. Sometimes my brain just has a cramp, and I have to uncramp it. Forgive me!
