After listening to M83’s haunting song You Appearing, reading that another Bee Gee brother had a kinked colon, hugging Jamie twice, and double-clicking a picture of former photography student Toni Pyrum in preparation for teaching tonight, I laid down for a nap and bam!
Dream: I receive word that Toni Pyrum is being rushed to the hospital with abdominal cramps. After the ambulance goes by, I hear that she has died. Then I am with her at a cookout two hours earlier, where I take her aside and tell her that I am violating several important temporal laws by traveling back in time to try to save her. I beg her not to eat a hamburger, which she laughs off. I then hold her close and tell her, “You have to live. You represent all my friends at Ada High School.” This is very significant to me somehow. As she leaves the cookout and walks across the street to a pet shop, she doubles over in pain from abdominal cramps, and the scene of her being rushed off repeats itself.
