I had a dream… not a Martin Luther King Jr kind of dream, but a ‘what the h*ll was that all about?’ kind of dream. I was in what seemed like a cave and I was surrounded by bunnies that were sticking white fur all over my body. They wanted me to join their bunny clan, or I guess ‘herd’ is the correct term. I tried to fend them off, but they wouldn't stop. I said to the bunny who appeared to be the leader…
JB: Listen, I'm human.
Leader: Don’t worry, you'll fit right in.
JB: No, I'm human.
Leader: Look, you are being transformed and looking more like us.
He turned me towards a large mirror, and I saw that I was beginning to look like a fluffy Easter Bunny kind of bunny. Wow, I thought to myself, I think I can pull off these ears. I don’t know why, but they looked really good to me. I couldn't stop caressing them.
Suddenly, I felt one of them grab my butt & stick a tail on me.
JB: Hey! No, I don't like it. It feels strange.
They tried to get me to sit down, but I couldn't with that puffy tail stuck to my butt.
JB: Stop, I don't want to join you. Can I keep the ears, though? Please, I like this look.
All of them (there must have been a good 25 or more) stood up on their hind legs and faced me.
Leader: JB, don't worry. We will guide you from this point on. Don't be afraid.
Well, let me tell you, standing up on their hind legs made them a good 7 feet tall and they looked pretty damn scary to me. All I wanted to do was get the heck out of there. I turned to face what looked like the way out and made a run for it.
Next thing I know, I was on a beach and the sand was freakin' hot. I thought for sure it would burn the skin off my feet. I looked back to see if the bunnies were after me, and was relieved that there was no sign of them. Whew!! I then quickly went over to the water and stepped in. It felt so good… very cool, very refreshing.
As I walked along the water’s edge, I was distracted by the view and almost didn't notice that a man was sitting in the sand. He appeared to be meditating, so I was just going to go around him, but then he turned to speak to me.
Man: Hi JB (he had an Indian accent). I have been waiting for you. I am your guide to the next part of your journey.
JB: Do I know you?
Man: Yes, you do.
JB: From where?
Man: From inside your heart. I know your soul. I know your fears. I know where you are going.
JB: Did you see the bunnies?
Man: What are you talking about? I have been sitting on this beach waiting for you.
JB: Oh… sorry…
It was then that I noticed he had no arms or legs. How did he get here, I thought to myself. Again, he spoke.
Man: I am going to guide you, JB, you just have to follow. Are you ready?
All of a sudden, these incredibly huge angel-like wings came of out his back, and he took flight. I was completely mesmerized watching him fly off into the horizon, but what really got to me was when I heard him say, “Go now. Go follow your path.”
JB: My path? What does that mean? I thought you were going to guide me?
Next thing I know, I'm awake & staring at the ceiling through wet eyes. Tears? I don't remember crying.
Holy crap, I thought as I grabbed a Kleenex, talking 7 foot bunnies sticking fur on me, a really hot beach with very cool water, a flying Indian man with no limbs.... I must really need a vacation because that was one crazy a** dream.
The bunny ears did look good on me though… seriously.
