2015 Middle East Persecution Dream

Some time in 2015, I had a dream that I was doing missionary work in a Middle Eastern country where Christians are a persecuted minority.

In this dream, I and other young men were working security at a compound for a Christian Church and School.

We carried guns as part of our jobs, though we apparently weren’t supposed to.

Food was scarce as we only had a few rations and lentils and rice a day.

We were quite hungry and I was craving some kind of pork product but wasn’t allowed to because this country was under Sharia Law.

On one afternoon, there were several young children at play, when a hungry lion was approaching our compound. I feared for the children’s safety but was also very hungry, so I aimed my .50 Caliber rifle at the lion. As soon as his head was in my cross-hairs, I fired, killing him instantly. Other men and myself ended up picking up the lion’s body, butchering him and eating the meat because we were so hungry.

When the government had found out that we had killed an endangered lion, we came under heavy persecution.

I tried reasoning with them that I was trying to protect the children from being killed but also that we were very hungry.

Their reaction was along the lines of how we’re Christians and our lives aren’t important anyway.

I think the whole compound was rounded up and shot, but I woke up before witnessing the event.

What inspired this dream probably was the ongoing persecution of Christians in the Middle East and the killing of Cecil the Lion.

February 2018 Tribulation Dream

In February of 2018, I had a slightly disturbing dream. After waking up and collecting my thoughts, I realized exactly what it was about and was even able to interpret it. I believe it takes place during the Tribulation times.

Here it is:

It starts out with two fraternal twins and young man and woman, during the Tribulation Times.

The man converts to Christianity and becomes one of the Tribulation Saints, the woman doesn’t.

The woman greatly desires to be an exotic dancer and chases her dream, finally finding success. She becomes world famous, but ends up following the devil.

She is featured on television screens and posters around the world and becomes very rich and famous.

Then the One World Government comes into being.

The young man goes into a cave for his own safety lest he would be killed for his faith in Christ.

He stays there by himself, living off of the fish he catches from an underground waterway that passes through the cave.

One evening he and I are fishing, but catch very little, just one small fish.

He is worried about his sister in addition to what he will be able to eat.
We talk and I try to comfort him then cook that one fish over some coals. Before I can eat any of that fish, I wake up greatly concerned over the young woman’s soul…

There was someone whom I had recently befriended and thought was saved but found out she wasn’t. I feel as if her blood will be on my hands if I don’t tell her, but I am afraid I turn her off to Christ even more…

Synopsis of “Separated Affection”

Separated Affection is one of my “Public Displays of Affection” stories that I am currently on hiatus with writing.

Though I consider it one of my Public Displays of Affection stories, it doesn’t attack false religion, but it does attack Communism and oppressive governments quite a bit.

Part of this came to me in a dream I had in June of 2006, part of it is based on childhood experiences and the third part is directly from my imagination.

It begins late one evening in June of 1989, where two year old Easton Milford is listening to a news report on the radio with his dad Perry Milford.

The news reporter tells of what going on in the Communist countries, such as the Soviet Union getting its first credit card to modernize its banking system and Red China being put under martial law.

Perry Milford remarks, “Those damn good for nothing communist bastards.”

Easton repeats him.

Perry tells Easton to, watch his language.

Easton replies, asking ‘What language, Dad, I only speak English.’

At the same time, Easton’s mother Penny Milford walks into the kitchen and announces that it’s time for bed. Easton protests, but then agrees when his mother says she’ll read to him.

The next morning Perry is pushing Easton on a swing, when new neighbors are moving into the house adjacent to theirs.

The Milfords all walk over to the house and greet their new neighbors.

It is a thirty three year old man Anton “Tony” Davidov and his four going on five year old daughter Kamilla Davidov. They are defectors from The Ukraine.

Upon learning this, Perry refers to Boris Yelsten as an ‘S.O.B.’ and says that he can’t stand him.

Curiously, Easton asks, “What’s S.O.B.?”

To which, Perry says, “Nothing, son, don’t worry about it.”

Kamilla looks at Easton and says, “Oh, that’s a cute little boy. Maybe now I can have a friend to play with.” Then looks at her dad and asks, “Papa, can I play with him while you unpack?”

All the adults agree. Kamilla and goes into Easton’s room with him and they socialize. She begins to rock him in the rocking chair and Penny takes a picture of them together.

Meanwhile, Perry is trying to cut the grass, but is angered because the lawn mower won’t start.

Being a high school history teacher and not mechanically inclined frustrates him even more.

Anton, hears him cursing the mower, walks over and and offers to fix it.

Perry agrees.

Anton gets the mower running, then explains that he worked his way from assembler to machinist at a tractor factory while living in The Ukraine.

Perry then says how he has tickets to a baseball game and offers to take Anton for fixing his mower. Anton agrees.

Back in the bedroom Easton is soon fast asleep and Kamilla lays next to him on the mattress.

Perry begins to cut the grass near Easton’s bedroom and the noise of the lawnmower startles Kamilla.

She says how when she was really little that tanks used to pass through the streets in her old country.

Easton says how he thought that was “neat.”

Kamilla corrects him and says, tanks are not neat and that they ‘kill people and burn down houses with their missiles.’

Easton replies, that it’s not neat but scary and that he hopes she’ll ‘stay over here from now on.’

Kamilla tells Easton that her dad says he’ll always stay in America as long as Soviet government controls the Ukraine.”

Easton giggles Kamilla then wants to know, what’s so funny?

Easton explains, his dad calls the Soviet people ‘damn good for nothing communist bastards’.”

Kamilla giggles too.

Suddenly the lawn mower flings a piece of gravel from the yard and it hits the window pane, shattering it.

Kamilla ducks down thinking they are being shot at by the police.

Penny comes in and demands to know how was the glass broken.

Easton replies that a rock from the lawnmower hit it.

Kamilla looks at Penny and says, “You mean we weren’t being shot at?”

Penny explains that a rock got caught in the lawn mower blades and hit the window. No one shoots at them.

To which Kamilla asks, ‘not even the police?’

Penny explains that the police aren’t allowed to shoot at innocent people in America

Kamilla confesses, that Easton says that his dad calls the Soviets ‘damn good for nothing communist bastards.’

Penny gives Easton a stern look, but then reassuringly tells Kamilla, that ‘it’s all right to say that in America, the Soviets aren’t in power here.’

Penny then makes the children leave the room so she can clean up the broken glass.

They go into the kitchen and listen to the radio and learned of a Chinese man standing up to a tank in Tiananmen Square, Bejing.

Kamilla says how she would never do something like that.

Easton tells her that he would pull her out of the way if she tried.

Kamilla then kisses Easton and they listen to the radio until Penny puts on Dr. Seuss tapes for them.

Perry finishes cutting the grass then comes in.

Penny tells him how the mower flung a rock and broke Easton’s window.

Perry yells, “Damn it to hell and son of a bitch! What next?”

Penny corrects him and says how his son repeats everything he says and that he shouldn’t talk like that in front of Kamilla either.

Moments later, Anton comes in to pick up Kamilla and she tells him about the broken window.

Anton offers to help Perry install the new pane, to which he agrees.

Anton then measures the dimensions of the window and has Perry write them down.

He then tells Perry to go to the hardware store and have them cut a piece of glass to those dimensions.

Perry says he’ll go right now and take Penny and Easton with him.

Easton is very excited to go look at all the stuff there.

Anton tells Kamilla to come see her new room.

First she kisses Easton good bye and he kisses her in return.

That’s all I had actually written to this story, but there are plans I have to go with it:

Fast forward to July of 1991, over two years later.

Easton and Kamilla had strongly bonded with each other and became very close. They are just about in love if one could call it that.

Kamilla comes running out of her dad’s house screaming and crying because she learned that they are moving back to The Ukraine to care for a dying relative. She continues crying and states that she hoped that they would grow up together and maybe even get married.

Easton kisses the tears off her face and says how they should play together while they still can.

He then asks where is The Ukraine and Kamilla says that it’s on the other side of the world.

Easton then says quite prophetically that, “One day, there will be a way for people to talk to each other and see each other even though they are on other sides of the world. We can use that when it is invented.”

Kamilla seems distressed and unsure.

They sit together in the grass for a bit then Kamilla says, “I have an old calculator I want you to have. My dad gave it to me and now I want you to have it. I know you like to play with that kind of stuff and I want you to remember me with it.”

Easton then replies “OK, then I want you to have the swirl to my Shelcore Activity center.”

They exchange their items.

I have yet to write the scene where Kamilla and her dad actually move away, but one day I will. It will require a lot of emotional energy to do so, I can see that for sure.

Fast forward to Easton’s teen years (2000-2007): He is obsessed with Kamilla to the point where it is unhealthy but generally harmless. He teaches himself how to work on computers and every day carries a vintage Mini Maglite flashlight. The reason behind him doing this is that the said flashlight was invented in 1984, the same year Kamilla was born and also it was invented by an Eastern European machinist, named “Tony” very similar to Kamilla’s dad. He also carries the calculator Kamilla gave him in the same pocket as his flashlight. The calculator is an Elektronika MK-61.

Then, fast forward to 2005: Easton is a senior in high school and has a side hustle of repairing other people’s computers. With some of the money he earns, he collects calculators, especially those from the vintage Soviet era. He soon graduates and gets a job at an office supply company but also and begins attending community college taking up Information Technology and English.

In 2006, 19 year old Easton gets his own apartment.

In 2008 he begins his career at age 21 as an online blogger.  

In 2009, as a lonely 22 year old, he signs up for Facebook and uses it to search for Kamilla Davidov, still obsessed with her.

In 2014, Russia annexes Crimea, Ukraine and the factory where Anton works is bombed, killing him. 27 year old Easton learns of this on the news and decides to do a search for Kamilla Davidov on Facebook. Finally he sees her picture and is overcome by her beauty. She is 29 going on 30. The war between Russia and the Ukraine prompted her to get on social media.

He friend requests her and writes a message “Hi. I don’t know if you remember me or not or even if I have the right person. However I knew someone by your name as a child whom I really cared about. Did you live in the United States from 1989-1991? Please let me know either which way and I’m sorry if I have the wrong person.”

She instantly accepts, and replies, “Yes. I most definitely remember you. I still have your Shelcore Swirl toy. Do you still have my calculator?”

“Of course I do, I carry it on me all time.”

They begin exchanging messages and he eventually convinces her to come to the United States where she will be safe.

That’s all I have. I’m willing to write some more of this one day, hopefully soon, but I’ll need a very high amount of emotional energy in order to do so.

My Synopsis and Commentary on “A Train Conductor Meets an Aspiring Writer” (Written on October 20 2016)

I began my series about a train conductor meeting a schizophrenic writer online in March of 2016. What inspired [and motivated] me to start writing this was I wanted to promote some of the [decent] values that I had in a previous series, without being too offensive and self-righteous. There are some references to that former series and there might even be more if God wills it. I have only written two scenes (or pieces) from each the guy’s and girl’s perspective and I am not too sure why I haven’t gotten further. I’ve been focused on writing other stories, essays, and articles, though, but possibly hope to continue this soon.

In this series, I try to promote that everyone deserves to love and be loved just like I did in my “Grocer and Writer” stories. This is done by centering the stories around a nineteen-year-old aspiring writer, named Tabitha “Tabby” Howell, who has two major flaws: she is schizophrenic and she is overweight. She is a senior in high school and has extremely overprotective parents. She doesn’t drive yet and depends on her best friend for transportation to and from school. So on a Saturday night in March, Tabitha was on a writing forum with the screen name CuteCuddlyTabby, posting her latest romantic story. She had received several negative reviews and comments and was devastated by these reactions. She was about to go bathe when she saw a new comment from someone known as MisterTrainman. He praised her story, unlike anyone else. This comes from personal experiences where I had posted some love stories on forums and got negative reactions, yet there always seemed to be someone who encouraged me.¬† Anyway, Tabitha looks at his profile and finds out his name, Cyrus Braeden, and sees a picture of him, to which she is attracted.

They begin to converse. Cyrus makes sure she isn’t a minor and continues talking to her when she reveals to him that she is nineteen. Tabitha then says that he probably wouldn’t want to do anything with her anyway because of her weight. Cyrus asks Tabitha for her name so he can look her up on Facebook. She gives it to him. He sees her pictures and is attracted and confesses that to her. ¬†Tabitha tells him that there must be some lucky girl in his life. He tells her that train conductors have hectic work schedules and therefore have trouble getting and staying in relationships.

Cyrus then asks Tabitha to tell him more about herself. She states that she is still in high school because she had to take a year off for medical reasons. She then says she still lives with her parents and they are overprotective. Finally, she says that she attends a very strict catholic school, but only because she is afraid the students in the public school would torment her about her weight. Cyrus tells her that she has beautiful curves. She blushes then asks him to tell her about him.

He tells her that he ran away when he was eighteen and wound up in a railroad yard. He was almost hit by a train, but the engineer took him under his wing and offered him a job. The engineer also helped him buy a house. The house Cyrus bought was the same house that the main characters of the previous series lived in until my male character was murdered and my female character died of a broken heart, from witnessing the murder.

Cyrus then said he wished that he had love in his life, but knows that railroaders have trouble with romantic relationships because of their hectic schedules and frequent time away from significant others.

Tabitha replied that he definitely can have love in his life and made an advance at him. He accepted but was honest about his job and how they will be frequently away from each other. Tabitha reminds him that she is willing to put up with that because no one wanted her before him. So, with that, they mutually entered into a romantic relationship and exchanged phone numbers.

Cyrus and Tabitha continue to talk online into the night until Tabitha realizes that she has to take her Abilify. Cyrus agrees that she needs to take it, so she does. After taking her medicine, Tabitha gets sleepy and they both sign off and go to bed. Tabitha is overweight from taking the said medication.

The next day Cyrus wakes and sends a text message to Tabitha. They text back and forth but then Tabitha then says how her parents went make groceries and he could call her.

They talk on the phone and Tabitha says that they are doing third quarter exams all next week. After a while, she reveals to him that she is schizophrenic and that he probably now wants to leave her. Cyrus assures her that her writing has taught him that everyone deserves to be loved and he is also attracted to her and would never leave her.

They then confess their mutual virginity and Cyrus states how happy he is that he waited, even though he is a twenty-five-year-old virgin.

After more conversing they discuss plans to meet during exam week and how she would have to get her friend to take her to the train station.

At the end of the piece Tabitha’s parents return from making groceries and so she and Cyrus hang up the phone. They are now falling very much in love with each other.

That’s all I have for now…

I wrote this and hope to write more of it because it is very similar to the previous series and one can almost say that it is even a continuation of it. Here I am promoting basically the same values without the immense amount of controversy and hypocrisy. Two people find love and accept each other without demanding any changes be made. They will treat each other with love, reverence, and kindness. Their intimate moments will be very sacred and beautiful. Still, there will be conflicts, such as Cyrus’ work performance and schedule, Tabitha’s parents’ and friend’s unnecessary suspicion of Cyrus, strict school officials forbidding the relationship because their age difference reflects negatively on the school’s image and reputation. However, I plan to resolve all of these issues. And, not only that, I will allow these issues to build the passion and affection between my main characters. I think I can make something wonderful with this new series if I remember to not promote self-righteousness. If I can remember that I need to stay humble and keep in mind that I am far from perfect just like everyone else, then this will be something genuine and beautiful. There is a train derailment caused by a terrorist attack in the previous series and now I am wondering if Cyrus Braeden could have been the conductor on that train. Of course then, he would have survived, because he is alive in this series. Maybe it could be a bygone times piece detailing the derailment. I think my foamer friends would enjoy!
