In the dream there was a billboard, and a man standing next to it reading it out loud to me. But I was far away, and he was shouting.
He screamed the words, “I would if I could!”
My car halted in the middle of the freeway and I stared at him with tears in my eyes. Cars honked all around me but I never took my eyes off of him.
After a few moments I smiled and shouted back that I understood, and that he was the reason I’d found the courage the keep driving.
