    Wish I Could Wake Up

    I was at a convention, about to make a sale, and was in a bit of a hurry. I was nonlucid.

    Suddenly out of nowhere, my grandpa walked by, as though just passing through. It didn’t fit with the scene and was a noticeable interruption from my current state of mind, but not because he was trying to be noticed. I got the feeling he wouldn’t have even looked at me, had I not initiated eye contact.

    He smiled with genuine happiness, the way he used to smile at me. It was real, I thought. Something I hadn’t seen in a very long time, and never thought would happen again. I was instantly lucid.

    There was something peaceful about him. He was ready to just walk by without interrupting the show, but I greeted him and we walked away from the convention into what appeared to be a Denny’s booth (with dark gray carpet on the floor, the wooden table and bench, and the red fake leather seatbacks).

    “How are you doing?!” I asked, addressing him by his first name.

    “Doing good! Its so nice to see you!” he said with a jovial lift in his voice like he used to have. I’ll never forget the joy he had.

    “I’m glad to hear it.” I answered. “How is the real one doing?” I asked, referring to his physical self.

    He frowned and seemed more dubious on the subject. “I just wish I could wake up…” he said with a sort of frustration and disappointment that was dwarfed by his happiness to be here. It seemed like he had been dealing with something lately.

    That was about it for this one. I purposely woke up to write it down.

      This one gave me the heebie jeebies a little bit. I'm very curious about dreams where passed on loved ones come to 'visit' in dreams. My mom sometimes does in a similar way to what you've described here...(but I don't recall actually having a conversation like this). The suggestion that death is a kind of dream-like purgatory is quite scary. But that's probably enough metaphysical stuff from me. Thanks for sharing the dream on here. This stuff is super interesting to read.
