I had a long U2 dream last night. I was talking to their manager, who in my dream appeared as my campaign manager from a political campaign i worked on 20 years ago, pitching a few ideas to him. One was that I had a great publicity campaign for Bono to promote Pepfar (President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief). Why I was throwing around the term Pepfar in my dream, I have no idea. The other was that I had found a great bass guitar teacher in my small New England town for Adam to come get lessons from, every Thursday afternoon. The manager was writing it all down, and was interested, so at one point I slipped in, "Why don't you just give me Bono's cell phone, it will be easier for me to explain to him," and the manager responded with "Nice try. No chance." Eventually, though, Adam agreed to the plan and there was a lot of decision making as to how he would get to my town. He eventually helicoptered in. He started with playing with some local folk musicians in a living room, where I had been smart enough to arrive early to get a good spot. Then I invited him for dinner before his lesson and he accepted. I paused, and then asked if his wife and daughter would be joining, hoping he would say no! But he said of course, plus 12 others of his traveling entourage. I woke up trying to figure out what I could possibly pull together for dinner for all of them, with such short notice. At some point in the dream, I tousled Adam's hair. Funny dream. But it goes along with most of my dreams that include Bono - they are always about my trying to connect with him over our backgrounds in campaigning and political work.
