years ago I had dream which was completely different
from any other I've ever had.
was driving a car and going very fast. The current "I"
was looking at the whole scene as if I was sitting on
the car's roof and looking inside from a third-person
point of view.
the back seat was a man and a young girl around five
years old who was more than likely his child. I believe
they were Jewish and were attempting to flee the country.
I was helping them get out. They kept ducking down in
the backseat as if trying to avoid being seen. I kept
looking in my rear view mirror.
we came to a shop of some kind and everyone ran inside
and downstairs. It looked like a storage area. I'm guessing
this was a pickup/drop-off point, kind of like the Underground
Railroad. I passed a mirror and saw my own reflection.
I looked as I do now, only I wasn't me as in the present
day; I had a 1940s appearance about me.
believe that at some point I was caught by the Nazis
and executed for my "crimes." As I recall
this memory, I feel very proud of what I was trying
to do, that I may have saved people from being executed
during that time. The only term that comes to mind to
describe my role back then is "Runner."
I have a fondness for Germany and am trying to learn
the language. I hope to visit there someday. My grandmother
and great-grandparents are from Germany.
