I Had A Dream ..

I have a full time job and I work the night shift. That means I take a nap 2-3 hours before I have to get ready for work.

The cool thing is that I’m such a good sleeper that even when I dream, I usually don’t remember. Well I had a really cool dream today so I’ll post it here so I’ll have it for future remembrance.

One of my side projects is www.Girl-Jocks.com where I sell women’s sports memorabilia and collectibles. I have a very cool logo and had a lot of friends asking if/when I was going to sell some Girl-Jocks t-shirts.

Here’s where the dream begins: I’m walking on a street with an Asian market on the corner. The kind of market which is so tiny every inch of space is used, goods are piled high, and the floor to ceiling windows are covered with ads and clothing. As I’m walking by this little store, there’s a small Asian woman (who slightly resembles my grandmother) standing in front of the window looking at the clothes. There are two t-shirts and a pair of gray sweatpants hanging there .. all bearing my Girl-Jocks logo.

My mind is processing this, and when I round the corner of the store, the little old lady is now standing in front of me actually wearing the Girl-Jocks t-shirt and gray sweats!

I went about my business and when I made the return trip it occurs to me that many years ago (when I was stationed in Japan around 1980 or so) I had some Girl-Jocks gear made up and I gave it to the local market to sell. Quite the coincidence that the very day I happen to walk in front of this store again some 33 years later, my gear is still there in the market window, then purchased and worn by the little Asian woman.

It was a nice dream and I woke up from my nap feeling good and happy.

Now as dreams will do, the timeline was all wonky. Girl-Jocks was not even a glimmer in my imagination back in 1980. I did have some t-shirts and ball caps made up around 2007 or so .. but none of that matters. What matters is that in my dream .. a long time dream came true and I got to see it play out in front of me.

    Robin,

    Congratulations on jumping into the world of blogging! I think you might find you get hooked. 🙂

    I love this dream report: It’s so full of great details and the promise of success.

    And of course, because my mind works this way, I see many potential short stories here.

    I’m just sayin’!

      A funny thing has been happening to me .. as I’m doing research for my various projects, I now find myself thinking out loud and realizing that I really should just relate all of these thoughts and experiences here for others. Might just help someone else or save someone time. Thank you Shawn 🙂
