a dream of Anna dying


I was n a large house with senior members of my family. Anna died. It was not dramatic. We were all watching. was it a heart attack? But she was lying there. It was sudden but no one was shocked. she was still and we were stoical. I was indifferent. she has been such a pain of late. have cosndiered vsiting her in recent years but raio rentals counseled me against since she is so irksome.i shrugged if off

a minute later she came abck to life. she sat up and spoke tranquily. for all the world it was as thogh she had not died

just read aboyt Lazarus moments yesternight when someone died nd heary restarts itself some mintues later.

mist go west. be near the old country incase elderly relatives ass on. want to be there for the obsequies.
