The Dream Chronicles and Presence

I often dream through my conflicts. These dreams sometimes follow a theme or appear in sequence. I work out my questions through my dreams. Sometimes, I haven't even admited the question. This is the first entry in what I will call "The Dream Chronicles."

After finding out that my father was terminally ill with cancer in the summer of 2006, I started having ghost dreams. I've had these dreams since the end of 2006 to until recently, April 2008. These dreams have been very real and tactile.

The first Ghost dream
My husband and I had been asleep for sometime. He was on my left and my cat was between us. I heard a noise which partially brought me out of my deep sleep. My husband was getting back into bed. At this point, he kicked the top of my left foot. I felt the warmth and solidness of his foot. Now I was slowly waking up. Peeved that he had kicked me, I opened my eyes and saw that he was on his side with his feet facing away from me. He was in a deep sleep. I was pretty sure that he had never gotten out of bed and couldn't have kicked me given his posture, deep sleep and total lack of movement.
