This morning when I awoke I remembered a dream I had.
I dreamt that I was able to visit an alternate reality. I found myself suddenly sitting next to Cathi at a funeral. She was sitting next to a skinny guy with long greasy black hair with streaks of grey, and a beard. Cathi was different. She was heavier and had much shorter hair. She looked sad.

I began to talk to her and she didn't know who I was. I whispered for her to please come with me into the hall and talk with me for a minute. I don't know why she trusted me enough to do that, but when in the hall I began to explain to her that she needed to join me in my reality. That in my reality she had seven young kids, we had a happy and fulfilling life together, that she was an athlete and beautiful mother.
