A Dream Neighborhood

I dreamt early this morning that I was walking through a rain shower. Walking through the village I have lived in for the last 25 years.

Suddenly the street became unfamiliar, wooded and with buildings set back from the road that I had never seen before. I noticed that my feet were soaked but I just kept walking, I didn't care.

I came upon a big, three story brick building. It seemed to cover the whole block. The brickwork, the masonry, was very odd. The bricks were laid in distinct patterns that I seemed to remember, but could not place in my memory.

The two upper floors were apartments of some kind. I could see drapes in the windows. The entire bottom floor was a open room with concrete pillars and floor. This floor was open to the street through wide entrances like garage doors.

I walked in. It was a market. There were vegetables and fruits on the shelves. There was a smell of earth.

I thought "Excellent. This is far in the future. At least one hundred years. I'm fortunate to be seeing this."

Thanks for your post at my blog... Looks like you've just started yours too?

Well, thank you... Your dream does give me some hope this morning, here where it is raining and new structures line our streets... Hope for good things to come with all the changes too. We could deal with a shop like that!
