Me, my husband, and my mother in law was shopping daily needs in a supermarket. Inside the supermarket there was a section that’s being renovated so we have to turn around to reach next section. We searched for items that we needed. After we finished grabbing all of them, we walked to the cashier. There was a purple backpack on top of the cashier’s table. I felt very familiar to this backpack. I had a backpack just like that. Exactly similar. I hurriedly approached the backpack and opened it without doubt. Thankfully nobody stopped me or called me thief. Everything in that backpack were mine. So, it was true. That backpack was mine. I went and looked for an officer there and told him, that backpack on the cashier’s table was mine. “Can I take it home?”, I asked. “Go ahead”, he answered me. I was so happy, but I was confused about one thing. How did my backpack get on that table? I didn’t bring it to the supermarket!
When the sun was about to set, I walked into a restaurant that I had never visited before. Me and my friends had made promise to meet there. We had become friends ever since we were in college. When I walked towards their table, my sight was attracted to a group of women at another table. They were my friends when I was in junior high school! I was a bit surprised to see them gathering together. Why did they gather without asking me? Even though I was also one of their close friends and I used to gather together with them. I walked towards their table right away and asked them what’s on my mind. They were confused and stayed silent. They probably felt bad towards me and didn’t know how to answer me. Disappointed, I walked towards my college friends’ table. Even though I felt sad because my junior high school friends had forgotten me, but I was grateful that I still had my college friends who always remember me and ask me to gather together. Honestly, my heart still felt sad because I was forgotten, but thankfully it was just my dream.
When I was walking through an alley I have never gone through before, I crossed paths with some mothers and children. The mothers were talking excitedly while the children ran after each other. I looked at them as I walked.
When I moved my legs, a girl that I didn’t know suddenly ran to me. I observed as she came closer. I smiled as I looked at her. When this girl had become very near to me, she stretched her small arms and hugged my legs. I stopped walking and stared at her with my smiling face. She’s such a cute girl. She hugged my legs tightly and I happily patted her head. I was wondering in my heart, “Have I met this girl or known her before?” My memory had no record about her at all, however.
Sunday, July 29th, 2018, me and my husband had just came home from our service at Kakap. I felt so tired because of my long trip and activity while being there. I took a bath and I wanted to lie down on the bed as soon as possible. When my body touched the soft bed, it felt great. My rigid bones felt limber. Moreover, I was accompanied by the sound of rain and air conditioner's blow, my body felt relaxed. I felt so peaceful. I didn't need a long time to fall asleep.
I felt asleep for about one hour in this Sunday afternoon. When I woke up, I still lied down with closed eyes and I tried to remember what I had just experienced when I slept. This experience is called dream. Yeah, right! Dream. You must have dreamed too. In my case, I dream almost every night, and starting today, I am going to write down all my dreams. I will connect some of these dreams to real events in my life, or I can draw some lessons from them.
