Tom M's ADC
Two days after the passing of my loving father, I had an extremely clear dream of us walking together.
The setting was in Boston's old north
station in the wide area in front of the ticketing counters.
This was constructed from my memories stretching back to some wonderful
times of my youth when we had attended sporting events together at Boston
we embraced, he moved through the turnstile and off to his next adventure.
awoke, refreshed, crying with happiness and feeling a superior sense of closure
and a general sense of deep peace.
