Battle DreamI had a rather intense dream last night...I was on a battlefield in ancient times. In the distance a great city was burning and lit up the evening sky in a brilliant orange that was highlighted with the twilight's purple and deep blue. All around me men were fighting with swords, spears, maces and shields. I defeated the man I was fighting only to be knocked to the ground from behind. I rolled over with my sword at the ready, and above me stood a roman soldier. In one swift move of his sword he removed my weapon from my grasp. Now with the point of his sword at my throat he knelt down and said to me, "When your soul has been raped, mutilated and plundered you have a choice. You can submit to the cruelty, or you can rise up and reclaim your honor!" Has he spoke the last few syllables he rose up and was silhouetted by the burning city. He then punctuated his last words by driving his sword into the ground beside my head. With that he turned back into the fight seeking his next battle.
It's been a long time since a dream woke me up with a startled WTF on my lips...this one did it!
