Why I had a dream of me being in McAllen in a troubled situation, I'm still not sure. I only wanted to live there many years ago, before I came to Chicago. Although I've always loved the idea of being able to live close to the border, and drive down to Montemorelos to see my family every couple of weeks or so. My hometown is only a couple of hours away from the border if you drive. I also love Reynosa, just across the border, and I used to think a lot about going there to party if I ever lived in the Valley.
Maybe it was all this talk about immigration that is happening right now that made me have this crazy dream. Or maybe it was the heavy dinner that I had last night. It could have even been the noise made by the city workers who have been working on the sewer day and night right outside my apartment. Gosh, I hope they finish soon!
Whatever the reason was, one day soon, I hope to see the Rio Grande Valley again, cross the river going south, and pass Reynosa on my way to Montemorelos, to see my dear family. I might even party a little in McAllen and visit relatives and old friends, before crossing to the other side. I keep thinking of how much the area must've changed since I was last there. Those are going to be good times! ♥♥
