in dreams

the most vivid dream i have had in my life is one i experienced when i was quite young, maybe 4 or 5.

i was walking down the hawthorn end of glenferrie road, a few metres behind my dad. i shouted out repeatedly, "dad, wait for me!" "please wait!" but he couldn't hear me and he didn't turn around. i kept chasing after him but i could never catch up, he would always remain a couple of metres beyond my reach.

finally, he turned and crossed to the other side of the road. because i was too young to be able to cross the road by myself, i was left stranded on the other side, still calling after him.
