the first time are not in perfect synch with each other.
excitedly waits for his plane to Juneau, where he is scheduled to
speak at a medical conference, only to be disappointed that it is
Maggie who will be flying him. Coincidentally, both have booked
rooms at a hotel that has just experienced a burst pipe, making
it impossible for the hotel to honor all of its reservations. Forced
to share the last room in the hotel, a two bedroom suite, they agree
to spend the weekend totally independent of each other. When Joel's
presentation and his efforts to score with the female doctors are
both unsuccessful, he finds himself alone with Maggie in the hotel
room one evening and the feelings they have for each other finally
erupt. Unbeknownst to Maggie, the night does not turn out quite
the way they had anticipated. Back in Cicely, the arrival of his
brother Bernard influences Chris' speech pattern, making him unable
to put words in a sensible order. For the first time ever the men
are not on the same wavelength. Usually able to finish the other's
sentences, they put their heads together to identify the cause for
the deviation. After much thought they come to the conclusion Bernard's
recent travels through Africa to explore his roots somehow caused
him to lose synch with Chris. The discovery allows them to renew
back from three month in Africa, including Botswana; in Dar-es-Salaam,
an old peddler put a necklace in his hand . . . half a moth, woke
up with an urge to get rid of his western clothes.

Maggie says Joel can't drive a stick. Bernard sets up a Pan-African
boutique at Ruth-Anne's; according to Bernard, certain cultures
believe tha when you dream, your soul becomes a moth that travels
the world ... don't allow cats where they sleep 'cause they don't
want their souls captured before returning.

In dreams begin responsibilities, so wrote the poet. So it
is perhaps. Could it be we take our dreams too lightly, those images
from places unknown? Could they in fact be angels in flight, our
souls aloft? You know, recent experiences have made yours truly
take another pass through the metaphysical thickets. As unlikely
as it may sound in this rational age, I emerged on the side of those
that cannot help but put their faith in that which cannot be easily
explained. Be open to your dreams people. Embrace that distant shore.
Cause our mortal journey is over all too soon. "Those cloud-capped
towers, the gorgeous palaces, the solemn temples. The great globe
itself. Yea all which you inherit shall dissolve and like this insubstantial
pageant faded. Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff as dreams
are made on and our little life is rounded with asleep." (muses
and reads from "The Tempest", Act IV)
