One Long Dream

I've been watching reruns of the 80s soap, Dallas.

When Patrick Duffy who played the part of Bobby Ewing decided to leave the show, Bobby was killed off at the end of Season 7. During season 8, everyone in the family, including his wife, Pamela, had to come to terms with Bobby's death. Pamela eventually met someone new, fell in love, and got married.

In the meantime, Patrick Duffy agreed to return to the show. The problem with this decision was the writers had to come up with a way to bring Bobby Ewing back since he was supposed to be dead. The writers came up with a brilliant plan - a dream. At the end of Season 8, Pamela woke up and discovered her husband in the shower. She realised that she had been having a nightmare about Bobby's death, which never happened.

Season 8 is a bit like life really that can seem to be full of fear and unhappiness. In Reality, we are all one in Love where we experience only joy and happiness.

Thank you Dallas for understanding the nature of Reality.
