A few weeks ago I had a dream that I lived in Gotham.
This was strange, because I’ve always been more of a Marvel X-Men fan than a DC Batman girl. But, the dream I had was undoubtedly of Gotham- as evidenced by the Bat Signal lighting the sky.
In my dream, I could fly.
Without gadgets, machines, or wings- I could soar through the skies. But, I was careful about flying at night. I didn’t fear the many villains that prowled the city after dark, but I did fear being mistaken for one of them. Batman, I worried, would be suspicious of my ability and may assume I was up to no good. Or, even worse, give me a lecture about night-time safety and stranger danger.
So each night I’d watch for the bat as I took flight.
