The Beautiful Garden

Driving along the road I passed through a plantation of flowers. It was so colorful with all those pink tulips in bloom arranged in perfect rows. I stopped and dropped by to converse with the owner wanting to enjoy such scenery and ask some tips to apply to my own garden at home.

I’m Being Robbed!

We were quite absorbed in our conversation when something caught my eye. I left my pickup truck idling thinking I won’t stay for long. Alas! Somebody, a guy in his late years together with a boy was stooping beside my truck probing something. I noticed the right, front tire of my truck was gone!

I rushed to my truck wanting to catch the thief. I caught up with them and asked the old man with hooded eyes and a white beard what he was doing. The old man was trying to evade my probing questions. With lightning speed, he and his companion quickly darted away. They escaped me. I tried to run after them but could not keep up. They’re so fast. The old man moves so fast just like an old Chinese kung-fu master.

Added Misfortune

I was glad the reserve tire was still there, but then again, I noticed it was out of air. I need to pump air into it but realized that I did not bring an air pump with me. I slumped on the ground and prayed hard for relief from my misfortune.

In a snap, all my concerns were gone! I realized it was just a bad dream. I got out of bed and peeped through the window to see my pickup truck, well, complete with the tires.

Why That Dream

Several months ago, a friend told me that they lost all the tires of their family car to a robber. Also, another friend sent me a collection of beautiful pictures in my e-mail. One showed a beautiful pathway grown with wild flowers.

This may have been the reason why I had that dream.

My dream seemed to be so real I really felt relieved upon waking up. I concluded that my dream was after all, just a coherent, logical construction of my mind based on previous experience of actual and related (from conversation) reality. I dub it as the Theory of Logical Construction of Dreams. How’s that?
