I hardly ever dream but last night I did and it was a good one. I was sitting at the kitchen table in my Grandmother Maxine's house. She got up from the table to show me the gout that had gathered in her fingertips and bent so that her forehead was touching mine. The gout was escaping through a small cut on her right hand and she was suffering. She laid down on the brown linoleum of the kitchen floor for some relief and a woman appeared beside her. The woman was beautiful with long thick gray white hair. She was wearing a flowered dress and her ample body moved in an animated way, wriggling almost bounding with joy. "Grandma, there's a woman next to you!" My Grandmother opened her eyes and saw the woman and laughed. Grandma could see her too and the two of them started giggling together right there on the floor as if they had known each other for years. The woman wrapped herself aside Grandma Maxine and we sat there talking a laughing, me in the chair and the two of them on the ground.
