I went over to Mom & Bryan's place today. While Mom & I played a few games of Jenga, I told her of how I dream of Penwarden St. from time to time. I mentioned to her that recently I dreamed of the bathroom having a board blocking the entrance but you could see in at the bottom because there was a space and the light was on... the bathroom was exactly as I remember it from when I was eleven years old. It was weird that two other bathrooms were put upstairs instead while the one that had always been there and seemed perfectly fine was blocked off for some reason. I have dreamed of Penwarden St. many times over the years and this was a situation that I don't recall happening before. In reality, the same as in the dream, the apartment on Penwarden St. was two stories and part of a house - sorta like a duplex but obvious in that it was a house that was divided later on. There was something about the other apartment in the building that bothered me ~ both in my dreams over the years and in real life... Today, after telling Mom about the bathroom being boarded up, she told me that there had been renovations done and that the people next door had taken down a wall in the one bedroom and discovered a bathroom! This bathroom was even unknown to the landlord (who wasn't the original owner of the place) and so this was a surprise to everyone. I must've kept the event deep down in my subconscious and it just came out that way in my dream, with the bathroom that was ours being the one hidden instead... It makes ya wonder though, just why was the bathroom boarded up in the first place? Maybe when the house was split in two they wanted to make sure that each side had only one bathroom, and thus boarded up the one bathroom on the one side? Or could it be for another reason more disturbing, eh? All I know is that when I was over there after they had discovered it, I didn't have a good feeling about it at all. I was eleven years old and therefore I don't remember much of it though. The couple that lived there ended up breaking up shortly after the renovation but got back together sometime later after they moved, my Mom had said. In any case, it was interesting to learn that my dream the other night may have had some basis in real life.
In other news... I really, really, really miss Guy. Guy and I have been together through some difficult and life-altering time periods in both of our lives. How we have managed to make it through everything - and keep our passion for one another - continues to amaze me.
