At the Age of Nine

Alanna was telling a story about how at the age of nine she had very strange dreams. At the time she had the power to change her dreams in the middle of them, but she made a conscious decision to make her dreams very boring so that she could fit in with the kids at school and make friends.

It made me sad that she had felt compelled to trade the power to control her fantastic dreams for the comfort of making friends in grade school.
