Okay...THAT freaked me out!

Here are this week's...
Random Facts and Tidbits

Random Courting the Flame Fact:
Until the 19th century, Boston’s Back Bay area was literally Boston’s…back bay. Thanks to a 19th century filling project, though, the Back Bay is now synonymous with Victorian brownstones and high-end boutiques. I’m sooooo glad Michael Turner decided to open his gallery there (wink, wink). What a perfect choice!   

Diana DeCameron Tidbit:
I’ve had crazy dreams my entire life. From as far back as I can remember dreams have always invaded my sleep. Thankfully, most are entertaining. The polar bear dancing in a pink tu tu had me laughing for weeks.

There have been a few dreams, however, that I’ve found to be a bit, well...unsettling. The most vivid example happened when I was 16 years old. I remember awakening to a strange noise. Buzzzzz, buzzzzz, buzzzzz. The sound fluctuated in intensity as it pulled me from my slumber. I opened my eyes and surveyed the room, my mind still fuzzy with sleep. Buzzzzzzz, buzzzzzzz, buzzzzzzz. The sound continued. I rolled from my right side to my left and that’s when I saw it…an orange glowing figure, very loosely drawn for lack of a better description, standing beside my bed.

Strangely unafraid, I narrowed my eyes and focused on it. With what appeared to be a raised arm, the fiery colored orb said, “It’s all right. I’m here now,” in a distinctly male voice and then it touched my arm. The buzzing screamed in my ears when it made contact. Still unafraid, I reached out toward the glowing…thing, but this time it slowly backed away, eventually disappearing into my wall.

Okay, that part freaked me out and I jolted up from my bed (for real this time). Did I mention that I was sleeping and that I sometimes have strange dreams? Anyway, I’m 43 years old now, but I can still remember that dream as if it happened yesterday. In case you’re wondering…no, the orange glowing entity never returned. At least...(scans anxiously from side to side) not yet.

Have a great week, everyone.
