I had a dream last night.
I was traveling across country (which I don’t do much anymore) and my flight was delayed and I had to spend the night in the airport. Except that the airport was sort of a combination of an airport and a museum (too many episodes of Sister Wendy, I know). It had a lot of natural science and natural history exhibits (which I love) with those enormous stuffed animal displays and giant windows offering incredible views of the stars and planets.
When I woke in the morning I was running through the museum to catch my plane and as I looked out the windows the scenery was so incredible that I had to stop and stare. And then I thought…I want to remember this forever. I should take a photo. If only I had my camera! And then I realized my phone was a camera too! So I reached for my iPhone and it fell apart in my hand.
I tried and tried, but I couldn’t seem to figure out how to put it back together. So I went looking for someone to help me fix my phone. Everyone kept trying, but when I would take the phone back it would fall apart again. It had all these cardboard pieces and washers and nuts and plastic inserts that just didn’t make any sense to me.
(Ya think, Josh?)
OH. And I ran into Ginn Hale and Nicole Kimberling who were (this part still gets me laughing when I remember) traveling with a theatrical troop of little people who were putting on performances of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. They were all in costume. Including Ginn and Nicole. Lots of red velvet and breeches.
Anyway, they couldn’t fix my phone either.
So I finally I was left standing at the window staring at this breathtaking scenery with my broken phone in hand, trying to memorize everything I was seeing.
