I am the captain of a ship making sail for Australia and am reprimanding a young man who is supposed to be setting an example to the kids but has been caught stealing. "You can't be doing this! When will it stop?"
He tells me he is sorry and agrees to work his passage home. I trust that he is a good man but I know he doubts his own ability to keep out of trouble in the future.
Later in the dream this young man has transformed into a woman my exact age who carries a violin. I look forward to hearing her play.
