This morning (before some crazy family news), I was reminded of the power my words can have. It was good power this time, and brought a smile to my face.

I have many complex and interesting dreams, and I do not usually share them, as often one of the most boring things to hear are another person's dreams. But every now and then, one compels me to share.

Last week, I had a dream, and I woke up with a certainty that a particular friend of mine should hear about this dream. I believe my thought was, "It will make him smile."

In a nutshell, the dream involved me being asked to sing a song onstage at concert for a band where I know some of the members. I tried to demure (love the song, but my voice is for crap these days, plus I've only heard the song twice), but got talked into it anyway. Found myself onstage with a lyrics sheet, with my mike not working, but went for it anyway. And then I kept being handed lyrics sheets to songs I'd never heard, and just went with it the best I could.

(There was more to it, but that's the basics.)

This sounds like an anxiety dream, but really I was laughing the whole time because it was a hilarious situation. I was having a blast. And I woke up humming.

So I emailed my friend, who is a former member of that band IRL. Got back a text today:

"Thank you. I'm in a particularly stressful bit right now, and you helped remind me that the things I/we fear don't need to be so bad."

And it made me smile. I didn't know why I should tell him about that dream, only that I *should,* very powerfully.

Sometimes the universe moves in mysterious ways. :)
