    Nostalgia can often keep a weary soul from sleep, but to sit and watch a loved one dream, even if they are just a dog or cat, can be comforting in a way that is both unexplainable and sentimental.

    I'm not from your generation so I'm not familiar with the movie reference. But the way you expressed yourself made me feel like I was there... the dog dreaming was an interesting tool for conveying the nostalgic quality to this. (I wonder what in the world they dream about, besides open fields and cats?).

    Michael, I see you write a lot about dreaming. Dreams are indeed a key to our lives. I have read several of the recent works of yours and have enjoyed them very much. You have a marvelous touch!

    Great piece, you brought me back in time. We must be a similar age. I remember front page challenge and gun smoke on my parents black and white.
