Creepy dream--

Very brief little snippet that completely freaked me out. A very little backstory--if you weren't "here" in December, my roommate John died late last year in a motorcycle wreck, very sudden. I'll occasionally have little sad moments, when I find something that he'd really like in a store. A day or three ago, I saw someone that looked so much like him a couple blocks from our house that I almost stopped the car, it was really startling.

Anyway, I dreamed I was in some sort of party, one of the loud kinds with lots of music and people everywhere. I was walking down a hall, and thought I saw him. I did a half-double-take, went to put my glasses on, and yes, it was him. He stared back at me in a "You're staring, so I'll stare back" sort of way, and then said, very matter of factly (and dreams don't have to make sense) "It's an alarm clock." At which point I screamed as loudly as I could, because, hey, dead roommate. That woke me up. I probably whimpered in real life or something, but it freaked me out for a long time.

I think the universe is reminding you John is still around. The death of someone close is really a shock (mortality!), it seems so final, but it takes a while to recognize they have changed, not gone.

Maybe...dunno how I feel about a sentient universal force, but it's very hard to remember/forget that he's not here on a tangible level.

The alarm clock comment makes me think--if you believe in this sort of thing--that perhaps he's trying to warn you about something, or tell you that time's up on something.

Now, what he'd want to warn you about or tell you to stop is totally what John would think was important, so I couldn't guess on that.
