Random coincidence, or a Sign?
Three nights ago, November 14th to be exact, I had a dream. I'm not exactly sure what it was about, but all I remembered the next morning was that an old friend from my semester in Australia, Craig, was in it. And it left this lingering feeling of wondering how he is and wanting to get in touch with him again. He and I had emailed here and there after returning to the States, but have completely lost touch since graduating college. I think about him every so often, but for some reason, this dream intensified my want to talk to him again. Nothing too odd or particularly interesting about this story so far, except for the discovery I made last night. I randomly picked up my old journal from when I was abroad, and started to read some entries from the latter part of my trip. One entry I came accross was about Craig and how funny and such an oddball character he is, and also mentioned how I had had a dream about him the night before. This was shocking (why would I have a dream about him and what was it about?--I never went into detail), but what was even more shocking was the date of my entry: November 15th. Which meant the dream was on November 14, 2001. Weird. A dream about the same person on the exact same night, four years apart. So, I pose the question: just a very odd and random coincidence? Or some sort of SIGN?
