A Dream or a Vision?


I dreamt I was in the tail of a Church procession following a couple to be joined together by God. We entered a cathedral with a very long nave walking slowly toward the Chancel and alter. The church was dark, and I felt like I was walking through a tunnel with a very high ceiling. The procession didn’t stop at the alter; it started through it. The alter was a door to a bright light behind it. There was a curtain of white flowers and the priest was Christ. I saw my beloved Patricia entwined among the flowers of the curtain and I wasn’t allowed through. Pat smiled at me and I whispered “Hi Pat.” She whispered, “I love you!” just like she did more than 50 years ago in that small quiet serious whisper she used for intimacy. As then I responded, “does that mean you will marry me.” After all, the procession was like a wedding. Her answer was the same now as then, a whispered “Yes.” Then the rest of the procession when through the alter and Pat merged with Christ and the light. Her face lingered amongst the flowers of the curtain. The alter like door closed and it was dark. It was not my time yet. I was alone in the nave ready to wake. Death is neither a whimper nor a bang; it is the great joy of joining your beloved and Christ at the Heavenly Alter.

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
