It was only a dream…

Or was it?

The author set down her pen. The last page turned. The credits rolled. And they all woke up.

Was it a dream?

Lives ended. Friends betrayed. Wars fought. But none of it ever happened.

Was it all a dream?

Adventure, mayhem, hope, despair, betrayal, triumph, and content.

All a dream.

Was it?

Was it all just in your head?

The friendships?

The laughter?

The grief?

Would you send them to death?

No?

But you sent them to something worse.

Meaninglessness.

If it was a dream, you don’t have to learn.

If they weren’t ever real, you don’t have to grieve.

If you choose not to believe, then you don’t have to love.

They say, ‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.’

Is it? Is it really?

Then He said, “Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, make Myself known to him in a vision; I speak to him in a dream.

–Numbers 12:6
