I had a nightmare. No a night stallion. Far too horrible to be downgraded to nightmare. I'm fairly used to nightmares but this was a particularly horrible and seemingly prolonged one. I was confined to a room in a house. I was free to leave but couldn't. If that sounds odd it's because it was odd. And horrible. There was a lot more to it, of course, but I can't remember all the details now.
So today I am thankful, very thankful, for the fact that I am free. I am free to go where I wish. I am free to do as I wish. I am free to speak as I wish.
CJ and I were fortunate in that we were brought up with a remarkable freedom. There were no barriers other than our own understanding that we had freedom so long as we didn't abuse it. I often wish that society could work on that basis.
