All this Lodestar ‘remembering’ must have unleashed a treasure-trove of memories. For, I recently had a crazy, nonsensical dream. You know – one of those silly ones that you awaken from only to remember the last scene; and this scene left me laughing out loud. And still does when I think about it.
And, you Lodestar campers were the stars! The dream ended on movie night. We were in the Lodestar Lodge, the projector was running – an old reel one – and the last of reel was running, numbers flashing by, as the light came on. Back in our former camper days, as the lights came on, our eyes would readjust to the light, couples clinched hands would drop apart, heads and shoulders would separate, and we would jump up to head to our respective dorms.
Fast-forward 50 years, and in my dream, it was movie night again, the end of the reel was flashing, and the lights came on. This time, hands didn’t separate, head and shoulders stayed together, and no one jumped up. Instead, all you former Lodestar campers were slumped in your seats, head and shoulders holding each other up, soft snoring sounds could be heard, and not one set of eyes needed to readjust to the light.
Will this dream come true?
Come Back to Lodestar to refresh, renew and rejuvenated those eyes!
Come Back to Lodestar to see if you can stay awake for the whole movie, or not.
Come Back to Lodestar; and who knows, maybe just go for a moonlit walk sealed with a …
Saying it out loud, or even thinking it quietly, the name Lodestar conjures up powerful memories and reflections. And meaning.
