<------ My friend, Dave Thomas, is a musician and artist in Charleston, WV. He is quite talented and just a really good person to boot. He played the starring role in this particular dream. To begin with, in the dream I had expendable income. Ha! A teacher with expendable income! I know for sure that this is NOT reality and in fact IS a dream. Nonetheless, in my dream, I bought a variety of art supplies, a HUGE canvas, and showed up at Dave's front door.
He said, "You buy the canvas and I will do all of the rest. Payment comes in the form of us being friends for the rest of our lives. Plus, in the dream, you said I had six months to finish it. You know what happens in six months?"
