All Choked Up
Last night I had a strange dream. My brother and I we’re riding a single bicycle. I’m not sure how we fit on it but I do know I was pedaling while wearing a pair of black and blue tennis shoes. We rode around an unknown neighborhood.
At some point I obtained a piece of blue, maybe a life saver?, candy, put it in my mouth and began to suck and chew on it. A part of the candy became lodged in my throat and I started choking. However, no matter how much I struggled it wouldn’t come dislodged. I woke myself up coughing, awakened my wife with my gagging, who got up and brought me some water.
As I struggled to get back to sleep, and after waking up this morning, the dream remained vivid in my mind. I’ve never been good at interpreting dreams. The color blue seems to be important along with family and a bicycle.
I’ll continue to reflect and try to sort it out while remembering sometimes the dreams we have for our lives, if not held loosely, can choke the life out of us.
