Dreams 2022

Dream 110
(4/23/2022)


I am walking
through the middle
of a long
dimly lit
room

there are
people
crowed
on each side

when I look
closer
I see that
they are all
women

young

beautiful
women

dressed
in party
attire

some
partially
nude

they are
talking
to each other

in very
animated
fashions

some
serious

some
laughing

I feel
as if
I am intruding

that
I do not
belong here

but none
notice me
as I pass

I proceed
slowly
toward a relatively
bright light
at the end
of the room

I see there
a desk

an older
seated woman
illuminated

dressed
in business
attire

she watches
me
as I approach

seemingly
awaiting
my arrival

I stop
in front
of her

she turns
a ledger
so that I
can read
the entries

she points
to my printed
name

then moves
her finger
along the line
to the number
at the opposite
side

046

she
looks up
at me

smiling

as if
that should
explain
everything
for me

I have
no idea
what to do
next
