Dream of: 16 November 2010 "Free To Possess Drugs"

I was in a courtroom in a Spanish-speaking country. Apparently I had been appointed to represent a black-haired fellow (about 30 years old) who had been charged in a drug case. The trial was going to be held that day. I knew a jury of six people would be hearing the case, but I was certain of the function of the jury. I didn't know whether the jury or the judge would decide the guilt or innocence of the fellow. I wasn't prepared; I knew practically nothing about the case. Nevertheless, I was going to have to defend the fellow.

The defendant and I were sitting in a corner of the courtroom and as the jurors began coming in and taking their seats, I was able to talk to a couple of the jurors. I told them my argument was simply going to be a question of freedom, even though the evidence might be overwhelming that the defendant had possessed the drug. The word "freedom" kept passing through my mind. Should a person be free to possess drugs? I zealously believed the answer was yes. I thought I at least had a good argument, even if my client had indeed possessed the drugs.

I still didn't know who was going to decide the case. There was so much I didn't know.

I realized that I was only wearing a short-sleeved shirt and some casual pants, and that I wasn't even wearing any shoes. Looking down at my brown socks, I wished I had at least dressed a little better. I thought, however, maybe my attire would at least show my humbleness. I was going to have to proceed the way I was, whether I liked it or not.
