JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 304 :: sweet dreams

2 Nov
Today we gained an hour. I didn’t realize it until it was too late. I unintentionally used it for some extra sleep. My body must have needed it. I suppose that makes it a surprise gift?

Speaking of surprises, and gifts, and sleep, I had a dream this week.

It’s the same recurring dream I’ve had since that pesky cancer diagnosis ripped me off the basketball court in high school.  In my dream I’m playing basketball. It’s usually some form of my subconscious working out a buzzer beater play. I have the ball. We need to score. Sometimes I don’t have the ball but I’m trying desperately to get the ball. The clock is always ticking. The pressure is always on.

The dream takes on different forms. But in many ways it’s always the same. A high school basketball game and I’m trying to make a play.

But this week my dream changed. Instead of fighting for the ball on the court, I was the coach making the call from the sidelines. I somehow changed roles and I woke up feeling free. 

It was more than a symbolic breakthrough.
It was it’s own form of a peak performance.
It was beautiful.
And a sweet dream.

More tomorrow.
