I had the most bizarre dream last night.
Just last night in fact!!!! In my dream I was playing a symphony concert in the Salt Lake Tabernacle with chorus performing some nameless piece by Vaughan Williams. My mother-in-law and a childhood friend of my husband’s had come to hear us perform and it was the most awful performance I had ever played, the choir was seriously under rehearsed and all the vocal soloists were sight reading. I arrived on stage right on the downbeat and was desperately trying to tune the harp only to have it change into a folk harp AS I was playing it! It then proceeded to keep falling over because the floor was on a slope, I then noticed I had no chair and I tried to creep off the stage as inconspicuosly as I could to notify the stage manager who I then could not find….
Gotta run and play a concert in Ogden now, hope it wasn’t deja-vu…..

Generally I dream that I will take the dustcover up in the morning only to find a never ending crack, like the sign we draw for lightning, all along the length of the soundboard… but probably its just my addiction to always having my harp in shape and he fear of anything ever happening to it….
But at the end I believe dreams are a way of showing you the truth about yourself and what is going on in your life…
