Self, are you trying to tell me something?
Last night I had yet another dream about tap-dancing. This time, I was looking for my tap shoes to see what condition they were in and if they still fit. They looked little different from when I last saw them…oddly they were the shape of booties with taps added to them, not at all what I remembered having. The taps on the bottom of the soles were a little loose so I tightened them up. The booties had ribbon laces on them and were a little dusty, and even though they didn't look like my shoes, it mattered not, only that they would fit me, and I was apprehensive that they wouldn't. But they fit! I recall feeling so happy that I would be dancing again and the feeling stayed with me when I awoke this morning…
…so much so, that I decided today was the day. This is now the third dream in a week. Is my subconscious self trying to tell me something? "Self, it's time to start tap dancing again because it makes you so happy and it fills your soul with joy. Today is the day!"
I went into my closet to look for my shoes…this time they were the ones I recall and love so much. They are black Mary-Janes, still in very excellent condition even after all these years living unused in the darkness of my closet and my mind and they still fit! The taps were a little loose so I tightened them and smiled to myself and started to cry a little in anticipation. Today is the day I start dancing again and my first class is tonight!
