Sometimes my dreams are little more than images. A tree. Nathaniel’s hair in a canopy around my face when he kisses me. A memory of Father and me on a swing. The park I used to play in as a kid in London.
So it’s not really odd to me when I remember little more than a feeling, a smell, a single moment.
In our world, dreams are often portents, which may be why I’m thinking so much about my dreams lately. I’m scouring them for signs of what the next chapter in my life will be. Of course, even we are not allowed to know what will happen, or nor in any detail.
I do remember a feeling of tranquility. The flowers were without fragrance, larger than life; the atmosphere was almost aggressively cheerful. But I only just have this image of myself there. I don’t know what I was doing, or if there was any point to my being there.
And what does it say about me that I was suspicious of these feelings? It may be that with everything that’s happened, I simply assume that happiness is fleeting. When something good happens, I find myself waiting for the other shoe to drop. I have never been to a place like this before, and I can’t imagine where the flowers in Faerie would look so much like those in the mundane Realms except for their size. Oh, wait: I do remember something else. There was music, coming from not very far away. It was like festival music, a big stage, people cheering. But now of course it’s fading; it’s gone; it’s just the memory of daisies.

Spiffy photos taken with the indispensible aid of my LumiPro. I never subject my primary rp character to dreams that are probably pointless and not harbingers of dark things ahead involving huge flowers without it!
