HALLMARK DREAM #1

From a few weeks ago...I don't usually have dreams like these, and have to wonder where this came from...

Had the strangest dream last night...could be a book....it was in the
third person.
A man kept telling the woman he loved that he would wait
for her forever, and showed her the spot by a pond where he would be
waiting...

Though he loved her, they were not lovers.

The dream covered the period of years quite quickly as dreams can do...
He planted a garden in the springtime and reminded the woman of where he would meet her...
Harvested that fall, reminded her again...
Fishing in a boat the next year he tells her again...
Then a war, like WWII starts, he is a pilot.
Flies many missions and on leave he sees the woman, tells her he will wait.
He is very insistent about telling this woman he will wait, forever, and showing her the spot by the pond.

It seems like there is even a bench there he will be waiting, sitting upon.

As the War is drawing to a close, he is not shot down , but runs out of
gas. Bails out of the plane and his parachute does not open.
not fully anyway, and in the dream I am wondering if he will survive the fall.
He hits the ground and in the dream I am wondering if it kills him.

Then a German runs by him and laughs, saying "I was shot down but your 'chute did not open and now we are dead just the same, no?" and the German keeps going as though he has someplace he needs to be.

So my man, the pilot, gathers up his chute, (still third person, I'm
like 100 yards away) and I watch him start walking away.
He is smiling and happy and I wonder why he is so pleased.
He walks with a purpose, like the German, and seems to have a place in mind he needs to be.

Thats when I realize where he is walking to, to wait forever and in the dream I see the bench by the pond.
I wake up.

At least your dreams make sense. I try to relay mine and they are so dijointed they make no sense.

You should write down all of your dreams and then write a novel.

Did you fall asleep in front of the TV again?

Haahnster

You two have to meet. I dropped you Post link on DNC to him as well.

It sounds like the movie where the 2 people live in a different time and correspond through the mail box and some other way. They are in the same house. On a lake. One has to grow up to meet the other. It is either Sandra Bullock or Meg Ryan. One of those heart breakers.

I think it was called The Lake House

Great story for a dream. I'm amazed that you remembered the whole thing. I always just remember a dream fragment. Makes you wonder if a subsequent dream will pick up where this one left off...

That would make a great novel. You need to hang on to that idea. Seriously.
