I dreamed I had to take a test…..







Oh no! It's an entry about dreams

Re-laying the track

A dream about train tracks being taken up and re-laid, in a slightly different place, while I'm on the train

A person in the dream asks, somewhat non sequiturially, given the circumstances (but hey, it's a dream!), but what if you're on the last car? And then the response was something like, so long as you're on the train, you'll get to the destination, but the route will change.

Ahh, the tinny sound of dream profundities. And yet, to actually see the track taken up while sitting on the train--visually compelling.


Don't ask for whom the company operates (it is not for you)

A rich and powerful man looks out over a nearby city, at some construction project going on, and says, "I'm thinking of buying that company."

Me, anxious: "This is an economically depressed area with a high poverty rate, so I hope if you do, you find a way to create more jobs, not simply streamline it to eliminate jobs."

Jasmine and burdock

A woman I knew in grad school offers me mood-enhancing pills that are like pastilles: one is raspberry, another is jasmine. We're sharing a room, but she retires under a tent of gauze to sleep, and I don't want to disturb her, though I'm filled with a desire to talk about careers, children, youth, and aging. So I walk outside, where people are admiring a huge burdock plant, remarkably tall, and with even more-giant leaves than usual, growing by a billboard.

They sound like interesting dreams.

I couldn't imagine a mood-enhancing pill in a dream, since my dreams always have enhanced moods to begin with.

You're lucky, then!

I haven't yet visited my friends list, but I see you have two entries since last I stopped by--looking forward to them.

I may or may not have a third one tonight. I'll probably wait until tomorrow or Thursday for that one, though.

Your dream-world is more interesting than most peoples' waking world. Also, your subconscious is socially responsible - kudos. ;)

Better than my dream self, who veers between the mundane and the seriously unhinged. :)

I love to hear about other people's dreams. :)

A couple of those would make awesome stories, you know.

Maybe? I can't see the *plot* of them. But they were vivid and fascinating to be in, in any case.

Burdocks - GRRRRrrrr
They are, possibly, the nastiest plants I have to deal with on the farm. If the seed pods get into a horse's tail or dog's coat, they are a dickens to get out.

Re: Burdocks - GRRRRrrrr
Oh yes, they can be a beast.

But their roots are delicious--I used to cook them all the time in Japan, slivered and with slivered carrots, in a sweet-spicy sauce.

Your dream world seems much more lively than the real world. I wish i had such great dreams.

I don't usually remember them with anything like this clarity. I think it's because I woke up, then slipped back asleep.

I love posts about dreams. What brought these on, do you think?

This morning, when they were fresh, it was much clearer to me where they came from. The pastilles probably come from the fancy fan teas, with interesting ingredients like jasmine blossoms or cornflowers, the grad student in question is one whom I'd been thinking of… but the trains, the construction work--I am not precisely sure.

One I didn't write about was seeing a whole bunch of people--hippie types, imitating Travelers or Roma, all in a hillside field, flirting with one another while children played with dogs and some folks made music--and everyone in beautiful patched-together garments, all patterned and colored, with lacy and velvet and ribbons and leather stays. Really bucolic. I wasn't part of the scene, but I saw it and felt happy.

Are you sure you were asleep in the dream about the man buying a company?

If I knew such a rich and powerful person, I'd no doubt already be pressing him with my schemes and ideas!
