I had the most wonderful dream the other night. I was walking down a dirt road. To my right was a field of green with wooden folding chairs and people dressed in old time clothes seated in them. In front of them was a black preacher preaching in an animated, glorious way. To the left of me was another luscious field of green with children in white billowing dresses playing and laughing. The sun broke free of the clouds just ahead of me and I looked toward it to see two white kites floating side by side, back-lit by the sun. They floated ever so slowly towards the sun and I could not see any strings tethering them to the earth. An amazing feeling washed over me in the moment I saw the kites. A feeling that everything is going to be okay. I knew I needed to remember their beauty when I awoke. It was a vivid dream and something about it brings me peace when I think about it.
