And I awoke to a vision inside a sleepless dream, and it was night. I was floating above the rooftops. And above those rooftops I saw a great company of people with very different expressions on their faces, wandering, some near and some had very far to go.
And I saw that each and every one of them had a thin silver cord attached to them in their middle and I saw those cords glistening in the moonlight. And the stars were overhead and the stars were working in their shining.
It seemed that while the bodies of men slept, their souls (spirits) journeyed in sleep, a dream, a vision of the night.Richard Jon Messenger
