I had a dream on the morning of 4/6/2013. Me and my husband live on one side of a renovated historic condo duplex. It’s Saturday morning on a bright summer day. After a conversation with my husband, I go into the basement to get something. While searching the basement, I see a large bird standing by the back door. I approach the bird and it flies over my head landing on the floor behind me. I intently watch the bird, as I slowly approach the door and quickly fling it open, imploring the creature to fly away.
As the bird takes flight, I turn to see it depart and I’m surprised by a large group of people seated in the backyard. I join a group on the deck and inquire about what’s going on. A woman gleefully informs me it’s a celebration and an all night dance party is about to ensue. I am not happy about this revelation, as we cherish our weekends relaxing and enjoying our beautiful home. Suddenly, a DJ pumps up the music as people begin dancing, mingling and eating. I walk around to the side of the house where a stream of guests are crowding my neighbor’s side entrance stairway, fetching drinks and food from inside. I quickly defuse my frustration and anger, deciding to join the party. I approach the deck where a young man is flipping through a fashion magazine, while sunbathing. He explains that because the State had just legalized gay marriage my neighbor’s decided to quickly get married and celebrate at home. After talking awhile and flipping through his magazine, I go inside to congratulate the happy couple. While talking and laughing, I realize I’d forgotten to close the backyard basement door. I rush downstairs into to the basement, heading toward the backdoor and again, I’m surprised by another animal. This time, a beautiful orange striped cat is sitting by the now closed door. I reach out to pet the cat and notice a few kittens scampering around the room. I follow the kittens into another room to see the young sun-bather cradling several kitties in his arms. The dream ended.
