Dream of: 31 October 1994 (2) "Not The Original Vision"

While I was in the field behind the Gallia County Farmhouse, I heard someone calling to me that my first-cousin Jimmy was coming to visit me. Before Jimmy could reach me, someone called out that my step-grandfather Clarence was also coming. When I saw Jimmy coming, I walked over to him and hugged him. He looked thin and healthy. I also kissed him on the cheek, I was so happy to see him.

He immediately began awkwardly telling me he would like to build a house on the Farm, and he pointed to the spot where he wanted to put the house. It was on the 40 acre plot at the top of the hill close to the government land. He talked like someone unaccustomed to speaking; he simply spoke what was on his mind. I was delighted he wanted to build a house. But I noticed Clarence had walked up to a fence about 10 meters away and was waiting for me to greet him. I realized Clarence had overheard what Jimmy had said, and he wasn't happy that Jimmy wanted to build a house on the Farm. All the years Clarence had lived on the Farm, he had been careful not to let anyone build there. Now that my father owned the Farm, that was about to change. I whispered to Jimmy that I would talk to him later. I told him I hadn't seen Clarence in a long time, and I needed to talk with him first.

I was talking with my sister and my mother about Jimmy's building a house. My sister thought it was a great idea. I mentioned that my first-cousin Ronnie had also told us he wanted to build a house. Since my sister and I both wanted to build houses, that would mean four houses on the Farm. Although that hadn't been my original vision of the Farm, the idea now pleased me.
