A call during a dream

October 27, 2009

In the middle of a dream at about 5:20 this morning, I suddenly hear a woman's voice call my name out twice. The calling not a good thing, it's more like "Help ... help", or "Where are you?, Where are you?" and the voice is completely different from anything in the dream.

(A decent analogy is that the dream was like I was sitting on the couch watching tv, and hearing the voice was like hearing someone yelling outside, like the one time in Virginia when I woke to hear a woman screaming one Sunday morning, and her townhouse just down from ours was on fire.)

I woke up, sat up in bed, waited to hear if there was really anyone calling me (nobody here knows my full name, so that would have been impossible), and then checked the time.

I have to say, every night is an adventure right now, but this one was flat out different, like getting a phone call in the mind in the middle of a dream.
