Folks, I just had me another one of them strange, funny Zimmy-syncronicities today; I’m yearnin’ to share it here, since we’re talking bout listening to TTRH to help us sleep (and that's where my story begins here). Alright…so last night I was listening to the TTRH episode about “Time” to help sooth me to sleep – loved it! (I also listened to some of Bob’s own music as well, before and after listening to the show). Well, today I just went out to lunch with one of my friends, and SHE
told me that she
had a dream ABOUT BOB last night
!!! ~possibly at the exact same time as I was listening to TTRH last night! (?)…how freaky-creepy-cool! ~And by the way, if you’re wondering whether she listens to his music to as she sleeps: no, she has told me before that she never
listens to any music (like I do) when she goes to sleep; so it’s not like she was listening to him as she dreamt of him; and she’s not really even a big Dylan fan- but more of just a casual fan; she doesn’t love him as much as I do. Perhaps she dreamt of him because of all the time she spends with me, having to contend with me talkin’ about him a lot, hearing me play his music in my car, etc?; (actually, she told me that she had eaten some very spicy Indian food for a late-night dinner last night, and she reckons that’s the reason why she dreamt of him; hmmm, now I would’ve imagined that eating Indian food might conjure up a dream of someone like George Harrison
instead, lol). She told me that her dream involved her and Bob eating fritos corn chips
together, or something like that….
And she said that they were loading a bunch of guitars onto some trucks…and that’s about all she told me, of her dream about him. I asked her, “Did he SAY anything to you, in your dream?!!?!?”, to which she replied, “yeah”…so then I asked her, “ well, what did he say to ya!?!?! Come on, tell me!!!”. But all she said in response was something like, “I don’t know, I can’t remember what he said to me! I know he did say something
, though”. (I got a bit frustrated at that, as you might imagine! grrr...). Our story doesn't end there, though: after lunch, she and I went to a local record store, and guess whose music was playin’ over the store’s speaker system
? BOB OF COURSE! As we both stepped into the store together, “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” hit our ears, followed by “Tangled Up In Blue”. (just imagine if it had been “Dreamin’ Of You” or “Series Of Dreams” or “This Dream Of You” instead!
). In that instant when we first stepped into the shop to the tune of “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” I gave my friend the craziest, most bewildered and amazed look ever, eyebrows raised and all….and she nodded her head in response to the look on my face….
.....wow, what a day!….seems like Bob’s haunting me again! LOL, cool…Love this stuff
(Side-story: I remember when another friend of mine actually dreamt about Tom Petty
sometime around the beginning of spring, in 2012….I remember we went out for a car trip together, the very next day after the night that he had dreamt of Tom Petty, and so I teasingly played Tom’s lovely song, “Angel Dream” on my car's audio system for my dreamin' friend to listen to. Tom opens that song up with the words, “I dreamed you, I saw your face”……I just couldn’t help giggling as Tom sang those lyrics on the record, into the ears of my friend who had just dreamt of him the night before!…That was such a pleasant, warm, funny little moment…Loved it
