Dream of:17 November 1987 "Visiting Florida"
I had apparently been traveling around the country visiting different people, and I had finally arrived in to Florida, where I was visiting my mother-in-law, my father-in-law, my sister-in-law and my brother-in-law. Although I basically felt comfortable here, I also felt as if I would like to leave.
As we talked, I decided I would like to do some exercises. I found a pillow which I could use to stand on my head. Since I was going to be traveling around so much, I would sometimes have to do my exercises in front of people.
I was also thinking about publishing some kind of little newspaper and part of what I was doing was gathering information on family history.
It was night and I had left the house. Part of the time I was walking and part of the time I was riding a bicycle which I had with me. I was traveling along a path on a high cliff and I seemed to be able to see the ocean in the distance. It was rather scary in a way.
I noticed a couple cars come and go over into some bushes to hide. The cars passed by and then a truck with a police insignia on it passed by chasing the cars. The cars and the truck pulled over about 20 meters from me. Some policemen jumped out of the truck and approached the cars.
One policeman turned around and looked at me. He walked toward me and roughly told me to come out of the bushes. I climbed out of the bushes and said, "I haven't done anything."
I acted innocent, and in fact I hadn't done anything. But I knew my being in the bushes looked suspicious, and I was afraid the policeman thought I had jumped out of one of the cars and run over here. I walked up to them and said, "I'm a lawyer from Ohio."
It occurred to me that the people in the cars were up here using drugs. I wanted to make clear to the policemen that I wasn't involved in whatever they were doing.
I began trying to explain to him what I was doing here. Some other policemen also gathered around. I told them my bicycle was in the bushes and I said, "I was with my mother-in-law, my father-in-law, my sister-in-law, my-brother-law, and I just got bored and wanted to get away."
One officer smiled, as if he understood how being with my mother-in-law could be boring.
One policeman went over to see if I really did have a bicycle in the bushes. I had the feeling they were beginning to believe me.
They asked me if I had ever been arrested before, and I decided I was going to say, "I have not been arrested."
I figured that the times I had been arrested, I had never been convicted anyway. Or if I had been convicted, it had been so long ago, it made no difference anyway.
One of them asked me to turn around. I did so and I held my hands over my back pockets. He told me to take my hands away and I said, "Are you going to hit me?"
I was afraid he was going to hit me. But apparently he just wanted to check to see if I had anything in my pockets.
