Dream of:01 June 2001 "Flores En El Balcon"
While I was sitting in an administration room of a college, waiting to see someone, I picked up a Latin history book and began reading. As I read – and wondered why I was here – a slender, rather odd-looking fellow (probably in his mid 20s) walked in. Immediately drawn to him, I stood and began talking with him. When the conversation turned to literature, he said he had read almost everything. I asked him if he had readHerman Melville's Moby Dick. When he didn't respond, I told him I had read the book. I then added that I also liked to listen to audio books.
Suddenly, the fellow clutched me and told me I needed to make a decision. He wanted to know if I wanted to make the decision now, or put it off until later. I immediately felt transported, as if I were undergoing a spiritual awakening. As he clutched me, I uttered, "Now."
We walked through the room together and I recalled a Spanish verse, but I couldn't remember the author of the verse. Part of the verse was "las flores en el balcon." As I was thinking the words in Spanish, the fellow said in English, "flowers in the balcony," and then at the same time, we both burst out, "Lorca!" Both of us were thinking of the Spanishpoet Lorca! I couldn't recall having ever had such an experience, of two people thinking the same thing at the same time.
The fellow then told me I must talk to someone about what I was going to do here at the college; and then he left. I felt disoriented, as if I were coming back to reality. About a dozen people were sitting at booths around the room. I was unsure what to do. I thought about the college, which I thought was named "Stephenville." Perhaps I should ask someone about financial aid. I walked up to a counter in the room. The man at the counter said I needed a number. I took number 13 and sat down. And waited. I was still unsure what I was going to talk about when my turn came; but I thought I would focus on financial aid.
