Thinking about the dream kept me awake for a good half hour or so before I fell asleep again. One of the last times I had a powerful dream, I wrote down notes and later discarded them. What a loss.
In the face of love lost, I rediscovered a childhood classmate and found what seemed to be a deeper love. As the dream state lifted, reality set in. She is married and has a family of her own. Upon further reflection, this isn’t just any random classmate, but one I certainly had a crush on, which at that age tended to focus on the smartest girl in my class. While not the first time I’ve fallen in love in a dream, this may well be the most memorable.
