One night I had a dream which I felt was significant for CNC. It went like this:
A sweet young Ugandan guy Mark, from our community, was leading about 20 of us along a narrow path, through some thick bush. We stopped for a while to watch two baby elephants playing. As we started walking again, I spotted a huge tiger crouching in the bush, ready to pounce on the baby elephants. Mark tried to chase it with a stick, but it didn’t flinch. We knew we had to pass it to get where we were going.
Jordan was small (in my dream and actually 🙂 and was lagging behind, getting distracted by the scenery. Mark shouted, “Pull together so we look like a big elephant!” We all pulled in toward each other. Jordan got scared with all the panic and started pulling away instead of pulling towards us. I was shouting at him to come to us but he was crying and couldn’t move.
As we huddled together, the tiger crawled into the bush and towards the back to where Jordan was. I noticed a tigress crouching on our right. They both had their eyes on Jordan. I kept shouting at him. They got closer to Jordan, but Asha managed to drag him in; just in time.
The tigers backed off and disappeared into the bush. We kept together, shuffling slowly along the path, surprised at how much we did actually look like a big elephant.
