I fell asleep unaware
of me sleeping in my bed, I "woke" up in an apartment sitting at an old white
tin table and folding chair. I looked down at the table and tapped it with my
fingers and chuckled, then I looked down at my arms and hands and started
clapping them and touching them in disbelief and excitement. As I was doing this
test of awareness on myself I suddenly heard a tinking noise. Tink Tink Tink. It
drew my attention in it's direction and there stood my grandfather at the stove
stirring something in a green medium sized metal pan with a metal spoon. ( I've
never recalled my grandfather cooking or anything. nanny and grumpy were
traditionalists). Anyways, I instantly asked him where he had been and I was so
happy to see him. He responded that he has been here watching us the whole time.
Ironically, now that I think about it I never moved from the chair. I asked him
what he was doing here and he looked out the window to my right and said,
"waiting for your nanny." My grandmother passed on before him. I looked out the
window and there was a storm rolling in. Dark clouds, no rain yet but I could
feel the vibration of thunder. When I turned back and looked at him, he told me
he wished he could be there for my daughter growing up but that he was watching
how beautiful she was growing up to be. He then went on to say he had some
things to tell me about the family and at that moment I was aware of my
consciousness slipping it started with my peripheral vision. It started to get
blurry and it faded into the center of my vision and as it was happening I told
him "I'm fading I'm fading quick tell me tell me" and that was the last of
