I have very vivid dreams and I remember them rather well and in detail. Last night I had a dream and it involved Steve Jobs, let me explain …
A group of people and I were traveling on a bus through a nice forest like country side high on a hill when we came to a very large waterfall. The bus went near the edge of the water fall on top of a large sheet of glass, enabling the bus to get close to the edge and for all the passengers to enjoy the view. The bus started to slide on the glass and it plunged off the edge of the falls and lodged between some trees and a cliff with the front of the bus in the air and the back of the bus closer to the ground. No one was hurt but we had to get out quickly because the trees holding the bus were creaking and we felt the bus could plunge further any minute. Everyone got off the bus including me or so we thought, until a few faint squeals came from a boy in front of the bus too scared to move. I went back onto the bus and grabbed him and took him to safety.
We mustered together and walked through the forest for a while and came upon a large house with nice grounds and a tranquil feel. There were seats on the ground and in front of them a banquet and we all sat down and started to eat. In front of me only a meter away was a separate seat and to my amazement sitting at it was Steve Jobs and his wife. Steve stood up and said he would rather sit with all the other people and he came and sat opposite me. I was rather excited by this.
I asked Steve what he was doing in this place and he said he was searching for someone to help him build the next big thing at Apple. I then asked how he would know when he found that person and he looked at me calmly and said, “they will have a white ball”. I have always been excited at the prospect of meeting and working with Steve Jobs and Apple and looked around me quickly to see if I could find a white ball. To my amazement I was sitting amongst thousands of them which I had previously thought were lotus leaves, so I picked one up and handed it to Steve, who looked back at me with a confirming grin. A tear came to my eye.
I was hired.
I’m at a loss to say what this means and if you have any ideas, please let me know.
