The Dream
"One night, a year and a half after my grandfather's death and approximately seven days into the recording of this albumm I dreamt an incredibly vivid dream.
I found myself entering a kind of "workshop" or small factory, where several men, including my father, were busy at their work benches performing various tasks. My father's face lit up when he saw me.
"You'll never guess who's here!" he cried excitedly.
Instantly my heart leaped, "Could it be?" I thought. Then denial. "No, he's gone, he can't be here." But still my pulse quickened and longing rose up and forced tears to my eyes. My father stepped aside. "Oh dear God - yes, yes, it's him. He's here and he's alive!"
Grandpa looked up from his work. A generous smile began spreading over that gentle familiar face. He turned and took a step toward me. I ran and leaped, and we both fell onto soft cushony grass where I became a child again, rolling and giggling and safe in those wonderfully strong arms.
Too soon, the dream ended, yet in the house in which I woke, the sounds of that child's laughter still echoed down the hall." -Terry
