Bombarded by apples – last night’s strange dream.

Last night’s sleep, though short (only 6.5 hours, from 23:00 to 05:30), was restful and brought a dream.

The dream had me as a young guy, possibly a high school senior, walking through a neighborhood that was an altered version of one in which I used to live, and interacting with folks I’ve never seen before.

A girl called to me from a side window of the house I was passing by. She asked me to come to her front porch and help; she said her family was being terrorized by some thugs. Running up to her porch, I saw some older boys across the street throwing apples at her house, and at some other houses nearby, and at cars driving along the road. When the boys saw me on the porch they took careful aim and started throwing at me. Apples. Big, red apples. Huh. What a waste of good fruit!

The Phantom is often called, “The Ghost Who Walks,” by African tribesmen. But he’s never been known as the ghost who swims.

I am the last in a long line of soldiers and sailors in service to an even longer line of masters and monarchs…

But the sea is no place for a Phantom like me…

For the ghosts of the briny deep no longer walk…

They swim
