When I woke early this morning, I felt an odd sensation, as if my body was vibrating. Focusing my attention more intently on the sensation, I decided it might not be a vibration but, instead, an exceptionally rapid and greatly amplified heartbeat. Considering that possibility, I became a little alarmed; I decided to lay very still, in case any movement could trigger something even more troublesome. Finally, I concluded I must have been dreaming; I got up and dressed, but was not completely certain the sensation was related to a dream. Even now, though I no longer feel it, memory of that sensation causes me some concern. But at the same time I feel more than a little silly for giving the experience any credence. The more I think about it, the more I think it must have something to do with a dream. I have a vague recollection of dreaming that I accidentally knocked a puppy off a card table, causing it to fall on a smaller puppy on the floor below. That could have caused my heart to flutter.
