This is a free write of a dream I had. I didn’t want to edit it or do anything to alter it because I woke up and grabbed my computer and typed. This is everything I saw and remembered immediately. Let me know what you think of the dream, and what you think of the raw voice (No editing, I mean).
I dreamed I was lonely, and I wasn’t myself. I wasn’t from where I was. I was someone else. I was a native-American, back before our time is what our time is, and whatever you’d like to call it.

They all stood in unison and peace and harmony. Their appetites were filled by the night air and the moon was their drink. They were bathed in the night.
I sat with my legs crossed, and then the animals stood before me. They stood and stared with such dependance upon me. I was the king. I was their protector and they felt safe. I felt the power come through me again and so I stood. The power circulated through my entire body and I was whole. The animals continued to stare and worship.
