#39 Portents.I have dreams, surprisingly enough. I have always had them, the same dreams, the same signs, over and over. The dreams don’t happen as frequently now as they did, but still they come. And still I remember them.

The details are fuzzy, and though I do not have the most critical of eyes, I still feel that I should be able to see more than I do. That the exact nature should be more clear than it appears, but never has it been so.
