We were walking from one building to another. The two buildings were connected by a long straight outside corridor lined by green shrubs. The distance between the two buildings seemed like a mile. It was a bright sunny day.
An older woman who had white/grayish hair that I don’t know or recognize was leading us. It looked very futuristic…other people were also walking to and from the buildings and they were all dressed the same, in white and grey, only Jen and I were dressed different from everyone else.
Suddenly, out of nowhere a bad storm kicked up….and I could see a tornado forming way off in the distance. We still had a long way to go to get the building that we were walking to and for some reason we couldn’t go back to the building that we left, it wasn’t allowed.
The tornado was getting closer and closer, it was moving at a high speed towards us. Jen started running for the building…for some reason I stopped and looked behind me. The older woman who was guiding us now had my Dad with her and they were quite a distance behind me.
I turned around and Jen was way, far ahead of me…like a couple of football fields...and the twister was getting really close. I took off sprinting for the building…and made through the first set of glass doors…but Jen wasn’t there.
I saw a second set of doors on the opposite side…and could see Jen was behind the second set of double glass doors….and I started moving for the doors. It was really loud inside the building due to the tornado. People were panicking, things were in a chaotic state, people were running, falling, screaming etc…
The tornado hit the building just as I was getting close to the second set of double glass doors…..I could see Jen running away…
Suddenly…I woke up….it was 3:08am.
I sat up…then got up out of bed…went downstairs and wrote all of this down…
WTF…what in the hell does it mean….
- It was so good to hear her voice again…it was comforting.
- I have no clue why suddenly my Dad was there…for those that don’t know I am NOT close to my Dad at all.
- The last thing I remembered before I woke up was seeing Jen through the second set of doors and thinking I have to get there.

In August of 2009 my wife Jennifer passed away from an Anaplastic Astrocytoma Brain Tumor. She was only 38 years old. She left me and our two little girls Abbie and Allie to continue life’s journey.
I promised her that I would NOT become angry and bitter about what happened...in order to do that I am attempting to write to express my thoughts and feelings.
This site is a place where I can express my thoughts, feelings and rants...
