Last night I dreamt I was in some other city on tour. When I went into the lobby of the hotel there was a hologram of someone performing. I was tired and about to go up the elevator to my room when I recognized one of the voices in the hologram. I left the elevator and went to it, only to find it was a hologram of my father singing one of his Gospel shows. I walked up to it, saw him and cried. Right after that I woke up. For those of you who don’t know my father died on November 23, 2019. He was a gospel singer (and a very good one). I never had a dream of this capacity before when it came to him. Currently I am attempting to write and record a song that will be my final testament to him. Now I am trying to figure if this dream has any significance to my project (or to me). Some people say that dreams hold a purpose in life. For this particular dream I won’t know anything until I (at least) see things through. Maybe it has nothing at all to do with anything, or maybe it is a message to tell me to keep going. Strange things can happen when it comes to the dead and the spirits that are left behind. This could easily be just my own imagination playing tricks with my head. I am going to take this as a positive and continue my quest to pay tribute to my father. I also want to shoot a video and post it here for people to see. Sometimes we all need to do certain things to help us move on in life. While each day helps me cope with his death a little more, I don’t think I can completely move on until I do this song. Something is driving me. Maybe it is him. I am getting there and I am working diligently on this. It is important for us all to pay attention to the things that feel significant in our lives. The messages may not always be totally direct, but it is up to you to pay attention. You might find a new purpose. Thank you so much for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
My father, Elton Jolly (1931 to 2019)
