The Part I Left Out

The Part I Left Out

Last night I dreamed I had one or two dire
symptoms.  Details are not germane at this
point.  Let’s just say it was impossible
to ignore them which is saying a lot

if you agree that in our dreams only
one rule applies, the dictum that all is
possible, an old saw that holds up in
the waking world as well, if you are a

reader of the daily headlines.  How to
explain the sheer relief I feel upon
waking, tempered by the disappointment
that goes hand in hand with understanding

that yes, I am healthy, at least no less
so than the day before and no, I don’t
look like Christian Bale, the part I left out
of the interpretation of my dream.
