the dreams begin
For years after I was discharged from the Army I had dreams about my experiences there. The dreams were so lucid it's almost as if I was in the Army twice. Now, after 24+ years with the Postal Service I had my first dream just two days into retirement. In this dream I was called back from retirement to carry mail. It took all day to case the route and I didn't hit the street until after dark. What a nightmare! I guess the job will gradually drain from my psyche, and it may be months before I realize that it is over and a new life has begun.
