Dream of: 12 August 1987 "Symbolic Act"

I was walking through a long grassy back yard which reminded me of the back yard of the House in Patriot (the home of my maternal grandparents when I was a child). The ambience was pleasant and I was in a good mood. After a while, I realized my ex-wife Louise (in her early 20s) was with me. Having her there felt good. She seemed glad to be with me; she seemed somewhat unhappy about her relationship with her new husband and she talked some about it. Most important to me – she was there with me.

Some other people were also walking along with us. Most were women about Louise's age. Finally Louise and I sat down, continuing to talk. The fact that Louise was now married and had a husband began to sink in. Although I enjoyed being with her again, I felt as if I were doing something wrong and I said, "I really should not even be here."

We both stood up and began walking again with the others. I was beginning to realize I wasn't going to be able to be with Louise; but it didn't bother me much since I would probably be able to be with one of the other women. Finally I took a short run and did a couple hand flips. I thought about how doing hand flips was generally a symbolic act for me, symbolizing a sense of well-being. I had noted that fact before in my dreams.

It occurred to me that I had been dreaming and that I should write the dream down, especially since Louise had been in it and the dream should therefore appear in the book I was preparing which contained the dreams in which Louise had appeared.
