I don't remember dreaming last night. But I was awakened from a deep sleep by what sounded like two women standing right by my bed. I felt a distinct presence in my room, but couldn't quite pull out of sleep completely. They were discussing something. Just as I was becoming conscious, I heard one of them say, " I wish I had known when I was younger the extent of the damage my drinking was going to have on my body."
I quickly thought about my own drinking, as I had been thinking of taking a break recently. Honestly, I have been drinking much less, but the thought crossed my mind the other day that I've never gone more than a month without a glass of wine or something.
I thought, I wonder if that's me in the afterlife, speaking with my mother, and watching myself sleep? Reminiscing about being alive…
Then I woke up.
