I had possession of a gun.

I had possession of a gun. I had wrapped it in a GAP bag but didn’t know what to do with it. My whole dream was spent tracking the gun, and so afraid that someone would get ahold of it, misuse it, and then blame me. But still, I would leave it by my beach...

Tears of joy.

Tears of joy.  I dreamt that my auntie who was arrested at the beginning of this year had been released from prison. I seemed to be drifting between an anthill where she was hiding and the family room in our countryside home. The whole extended family had gathered and amongst us was the dead as...

I was trying to escape from bad guys

I was trying to escape from bad guys with another person. (I often run away from bad people in my dreams, sometimes the bad guy has been my father who wants to kill me, but more often strangers, and this never seems like a nightmare until I wake up and am horrified.) We came into...

I dreamt I was in this giant, curvy/modernist/bureaucratic complex with a bunch of other people

I dreamt I was in this giant, curvy/modernist/bureaucratic complex with a bunch of other people, some of them I could recognize but others… and some of them weren’t actually people but changelings, you could tell by the way they moved. And when we figured out who they were we also realized They outnumbered Us. And...

A dream is a work of art

“If dreaming is defined as thinking that occurs during sleep, and if thinking consists essentially of generating ideas, then dreaming is also a process of conceiving and the resulting dream images may be viewed as the embodiment of conceptions. That which is invisible, namely a conception, becomes visible when it is transformed into a dream...

I was traveling with two other girls

I was traveling with two other girls.  Why, where, can’t remember.  Air train from an airport, one of the girls marveling at how much quicker one could travel from the airport now after many years of slow buses.  I think we were going to Serbia, where she was from.  Long muddled journey but then parking...

I was in a butcher shop

I was in a butcher shop—very grey tones. The only things sold in the shop were offal: the guts and brains of animals. I was buying duck livers.

A performance I was directing

A performance I was directing (I don’t direct performances in real life) in a proscenium stage theatre.  I had a crush on a man in the audience, who was in another relationship with a very jealous woman.  The performance was in rehearsal but as it played, I stood in the audience (halfway to the back;...

I was in the old building where I used to live

I was in the old building where I used to live (in Los Angeles), but the location was different, more tucked away, and the ground level of the building was now a wide open lobby, a meeting hall.  Hundreds of people were gathered on makeshift bleachers for New Year’s Eve.  It was the middle of...
