Nightmares and dreamscapes: The past comes back to haunt

A funny thing happened on the way to the hospital.. those who have followed the HORROR REPORT know most things in my private life stay private.. however there were some issues of medical urgency that took place in late December 2013.. A family emergency that led to some odd time slips, warps of the mind, and deju vue that still chills me..Fast forward until now: Things really don’t seem to be changing on the oddity front..Without going into details, the newspaper snippet you are seeing with this post was from May 11, 2014. It was about an old 1800s mining accident that happened in my town.. While the canary was obviously not in this coal mine in 1887, the real northworthy event of the news article is what happened to my father a night before this appeared in the paper..My dad, who is honest and rarely embelishes, was chilled when he read this .. The night before, he had a dream that he was going to work in a mine.. old fashioned mining clothing was being worn by the five others in the dream. They were encouraging him to go into the mine with them.. He was about to, he said, until a moment of clairty occurred and he turned back, telling them to go on without him. He woke up to his newspaper article that spoke of five men who went to work in a mine and never came out alive.It brings up delicate questions such as, was it just coincidental that this article appeared a day after my father had that dream? Could he have been alive in 1887 and died during the incident? Or maybe he did not, and instead was a 6th miner who lived because he never entered the mine to perish? Or it’s all just chance. Nothing more than chance..Nightmares and dreamscapes are on my mind today.. the HORROR REPORT is sure that dreams of my father are not the only ones—surely you’ve had such events, too? Email me at Bryan@horrorreport.com or visit my open lines page to tell me anything.
