I haven’t written for a while, but I usually like to write about my dreams when I have them. I had this dream a few weeks ago. An old woman was at the foot of my bed, pointing her in-dex finger at me and laughing at me. She was very ugly. She had deep dark black circles under her eyes from lack of sleep, malnutrition, and illness. She had a pasty face, like someone who was trying to look younger by plastering on luminous face powder…and a pasty face from the sickness in her body. She had all the garishness of age…wrinkling skin, drooping muscles and body parts, sparse hair, yellowing and missing teeth, stooped over posture, decayed looking nails, and she was wearing a wrinkled and over-used NIGHTIE. (I have not had a boyfriend in over a decade due to the unnecessary illness in my body and severe the harassment I have been subjected to by these people who will not let me be human and who will not stay out of my personal space…this dream reflects humor, but truly not…what I have been put through is TORTURE and it might cost me my health forever – to keep someone in a cage while you constantly ding them and remind them they are nothing). She kept cackling at me…while I was in a semi-stupor of sleep, “Your still at the Gare”, ha ha ha, cackle, cackle, cackle, “Your still at the Gare”.

The gare is station in french…it means I am still in a place where I do not count. A place where the train stops and dumps off the baggage which if not picked-up is stored or thrown away. I am still a nowhere person in nowheresville.

Stuck at the station…stagnation, fatigue, illness and fear induced by the constant harassment I am subjected to…
