It has been a heck of a week, my friends. A week ago Friday evening I came down with a bad case of the flu. For three days I stayed mostly in bed in the fetal position waiting patiently for the Lord to take me. Every bone in my body ached and my skin felt like permanent goose bumps,"la carne de gallina" or "la piel de gallina" in Spanish (the flesh or the skin of a chicken). My head hurt like it was being squeezed in a vice and I thought my brains were going to squirt out. On top of all that, what little sleep I had was plagued by nightmares. I had some very strange visions and one vision reoccurred several times, and in fact so often that I was able to make some notes about it as soon as I woke up in a little notebook that I keep at the side of my bed for just that purpose. You have to catch them right away before they fade. Based upon my notes and what I vaguely remember I made the sketch below. I still have some unanswered questions:
1.) What's with the fish? Does this mean that I had the "fish" flu?
2.) Does it mean that I should eat more fish or less fish?
3.) Does it mean that I smell like a fish? More than likely after three days with no shower.
4.) Who is the woman (?) and why the bow tie?
Anyway, I hope all of that is now "agua pasada" as we in Spanish or as we say in English, "water gone under the bridge". Thank God that I'm still alive and kicking.
