Last night’s dream.

The fog…my picture taken with a toothless Eddie Van Halen…my down coat on fire…the smell of a campfire…David Crowder…more fog.

Anyone with an interpretation?

Caleb Nei is the Worship Arts Director at Emmaus Church in Berryville. He also teaches at least 40 piano lessons each week, is a member of the band Stereoreel, plays piano jazz at a couple of restaurants when Stereoreel isn’t playing, has three children, one wife and loves where God has him. He has a degree in church music from Huntington University and has studied jazz at Shenandoah University. He has no additional hobbies because he’s one of those people who have been able to get a job doing what he’d do for free anyway.

    I’m not a Psychophysiologist by trade, but I would suggest that you’re facing the dilemma of being a jazz pianist who is an in-the-closet Van Halen junkie. Society expects you to be playing Miles and Dizzy, and yet deep down inside, you’re longing to punish those ivories with “Why Can’t This be Love?” and a little “Spanked”.
    The toothlessness of Eddie symbolizes his advanced years and your photograph together is your realization that you too are no longer 30.
    Your down coat on fire is the result of Eddie’s recent lapse into rehab and the fog that it has left you in, as a result.
    The smell of campfire is actually just your down coat. Apparently the manufacturer doesn’t clean the down feathers as well as they should during product assembly.
    David Crowder is in ALL of your dreams, because you listen to him constantly, follow him to all of his concerts, and obsess about one day being able to get your hair to style the same as his.
    My advice? Lay off the Crowder, pound out a few lines of “Man on a Mission” and “Jump” at your next jazz performance, and visit a Chipotle soon.
