  1. After a near death experience where I stopped breathing, my dreams became more vivid and strange. I dream of a empty, red and blue, sun aged, and wind tattered circus tent. It was located in the middle of no where. When I entered the tent I saw nothing, no stands for the people to sit in, no circus ring, with sparse equipment. Only the trapeze, tight rope and something similar to a monkey bar that you would find in a park for children. The floor of the tent had been swept clean and the ground had become hard. It was a place of sadness, and longing.
