In the dream Justin and I were looking at photos of Evan and Duncan that we hadn't seen before. They were playing together in the sunshine. They were giggling and holding hands and rolling around together. Their arms intertwined as they played. Evan, as always, was gentle with his tiny little brother. The photo was of their arms intertwined in this beautiful golden sunlight. With some sort of dream technology, we were able to flip the picture around to find that behind the arms, Evan and Duncan were holding hands.
I woke up thinking how beautiful and warm that sunshine was. It was 5:30am and I didn't really want to get up to write anything down (I probably would have gotten more detail.) Because I went back to sleep, I had another short Evan dream!
The first part of the dream a neighbor was bulldozing his back yard, and ended up bulldozing ours, too. I went out to speak to him and got distracted by something else. Pretty soon, Justin came out. And that part was over and we were at a restaurant with Evan. We ordered something for Justin and me, thinking that Evan would eat some of mine. The order came. Justin had ordered some weird bird's nest sort of dish. He had to crack through this outer shell to get to some rice mixture inside. With some help from another customer, he figured it out. I had some pancakes. Unfortunately for Evan, they weren't just regular pancakes. They were more savory than sweet. I offered him some, but he said they smelled funny. I was on the verge of ordering something else for Evan (or suggesting going by IHOP!) when...
Somebody knocked something over with a crash in real life and I woke up. Sigh.... It was nice to hear his little voice again.
