the name of the dream
the first scene, in amsterdam
a young girl, seventeen or eighteen, latched onto me
she was a typically exuberant teenager; excited with the newness of life and, like so many young and happy girls, she had lots to say
her extrovert nature made her appealing and i was perfectly happy to let her into my life
she wasn't, however, a girl i wanted a relationship with but that wasn't a problem for her
a scene or two later a young man about the same age as the girl was asking passers-by for money
it didn't take long for me to recognise he had character problems, he came across as being "slow"
after handing him some money the young girl and i walked on
in the next scene, we are walking along at a casual pace and he is talking to the young girl
immediately it was noticeable that his personality had changed for the better
he speech was no longer hesitant and the expression on his face had gone from being lost and forlorn to enthusiastic
he and the girl were getting on like a house on fire as they exchanged a to and fro of words and mannerisms
there were a few more scenes and as they played out the girl and boy were becoming evermore friendly
it was a joy to see them engrossed with each other; they had become an "item"
we went from place to place, a coffee here, a gift shop there
knowing i had brought them together produced a deep, warm and wonderful feeling of satisfaction
a beautiful dream
if a simple situation like this can produce such pleasure for the writer what must it be like for you-know-who bringing into being couples who will be together forever and will be becoming increasingly happier the longer they are together !
you will be forgiven, if, like me, you feel a little envious of her/his creative abilities
