one last classic one from February 24, 2003 (the golden dream weekend). sorry for the delays...
am shooting arrows on a raft like oblject that is floating on the water. it was a wooden raft, i think. more like a floating platform. i was competing with someone- am not sure if it was a guy or a girl. but in any case, i was shooting arrows with a tennis racket bow. yup. a tennis racket. don't ask me why~ it's just a dream. so i was shooting these arrows really good at the target at the other end of the floating platform, but my competitor was having some problems. so i try out his/her racket and find that the string is too loose. i tell the oher: hey you, the string is too loose. i then jumped in the water to retrieve those missed arrows...
i am wading through a shallow wading pool (kinda like the big resort pool at the hilton waikaloa on the big island). i am making my way through the water collecting arrows with one hand and keeping my bow in the air to stay dry with the other hand. there were lots of people lounging around the pool just hanging out. as i was moving through the water, a huge grey tiger shark came floating into the wade pool. i distinctively remember telling myself: it's a huge tiger shark (looking at the little stripes on the side of it). everyone stood totally still as the shark made its way around the pool. we took a breath as the shark went out. i slowing wade my way to the edge of the pool being careful to keep my bow dry. almost out, the shark comes drifting back. this time, it's on a mission and seems to be sniffing at me. i can't see it, but from the expression and hints of the people around me, i quicken my pace to the edge of the pool. i never turned to look back at it, but i could feel it just behind me. as i reached the edge, in all its drama and glory, i jump out of the pool in the nick of time. i made it! relief... WAKE.
i kinda liked this dream. lots of action.
am pretty much caught up now. so i will try to post as often/current as possible. please drop me a line if you have any interesting thoughts or dreams that you would like to share. always great hearing from you all :)
thank you for your surprise, love!
don't be :(
i am thinking of you...
deep thoughts - friday:
getting what you want,
or being happy with what you have???
a no dream night here for myself. but a short addition from fellow twisted friend rose. i love twisted people.
she had a dream that she was in a war and she had gotten stabbed with a spear but only pretended to be dead. she fell asleep and woke up nest to all these dead bodies, but could not move because she had this stake pinning her to the ground. WAKE.
she adds that she had this dream after she saw "lord of the rings" but we all know that she probably just enjoyed having that piece of wood pinning her down :) thank you for your input, babe! great veins, BTW...
a few more short-takes from last night. need to get more quality sleep time. 5-6 hours a night is just not cutting it any more. must be getting old or something...
sitting in a dark restaurant with a group of friends. i think i was talking to alison cause the girl had some bangs and a big smile (peppermint patty2). she was seated right next to me. i turned to her for conversation, but she smiled and turned away from me (while chatting), so i was talking to the back of her head. i remember saying: you should not bid on trips, you know, your too junior (a crew planner preferential bidding advise)...
am now on a beach with alicia. we are walking down the beach talking. that's it. it was more of a slide show, snap shot thingy than a regular video dream. you can't say that i don't think of you, now can you? :)
i think i get these multi-part dreams from the damn snooze alarm. i set 2 alarms for the night. my snooze alarm starts going off about 45 minutes prior to my actually getting up. it rings every 9 minutes or so. at about 7:15 my cell-phone alarm goes off (suppose to be my final wakeup alarm) and i have to get my ass out of bed and walk over to my desk in my haze to turn that off. i usually try to capture a 5-10 minute power nap after that (need those precious minutes). it's my best dream capture period. try it!
here are a few quick ones from last night. i had more details but i hesitated to take notes right after i woke up. damn! i was so groggy. it started to fade from me while i was sitting on the john. by the time i got out of the shower, this is all i had left...
back in that bangkok house again. in the outdoor kitchen area that overlooks the back yard. from here i can see the back gate door. it's not a big area, but in the dream ghosts are moving in through that back gate door. people are across from them defending the area. a battle ensues as i watch from the kitchen table area. a wall of water divides the 2 sides. the ghosts never reach me, but they inch closer as they advance... creepy.
in a hotel room now with chisato. it seems to be a really fancy upsale place. we move over to the couch for a snuggle. opening the large wooden shutters, we see a bright and lively beach scene similar to waikiki. it was pretty grand. i tell chisato: that's a pretty cool pool ya? WAKE.
i am a bit behind on my past dream postings. had a big dream-weekend this past week. so let's go back to saturday, february 22, 2003:
was in los angeles like our last trip in athena's house. everyone was lounging around the den. we were suppose to have a party or something. who is it for? what party? was looking for my love (chisato) but she was already there at the party with a few other guys (kevin and allan). i wondered: why was she there with them? i was looking for her the entire night. i was a bit puzzled and upset. i tried to get closer to her but did not quite reach her for some reason. the party was eventually a no go, so we all decided to go walking down the beach together...
am inside the aquarium looking at some strange fish with chisato. it was like the aquarium tanks were in the water or something. i scooped up one fish and moved it from one tank to another. i said: look its a rainbow fish. but it wasn't. it turned into some kind of hatchet fish instead. so we let it go into the ocean water. next we moved a cool red fish from one tank into another. the fish refused to go into the tank. instead it morphed into some kind of blue mantis shrimp or something right in front of our eyes. it was pretty big. it refused to sink to the bottom. it eventually crawled out of the tank and escaped into the ocean. it gave me a strange bewildered feeling... WAKE.
my love (chisato) finally dreamed of me the past night. i really miss you sweetie. you never dream of me :)
in her dream, we were skiing together in japan! i was supposed to be a really good skier too. i was teaching her skiing there (though i have never ever ever skied in my life). then, all of a sudden, i disappeared. and she thought: why did he have to run away? she felt sad. WAKE.
long-distance relationships are not easy. but i am here for you baby. love love.
on friday night, february 21, 2003 i dreamed that i was back in my old childhood bedroom in bangkok just lounging around, when from out of nowhere 3 cats entered the room. one was a black and white taby, one was a beautiful white cat and the other a mysterious grey feline. the black and white one was a pain in the ass. it jumped around everywhere and was terrorizing my room. i had to fight and wrestle with it to kick it out! i looked around for the other cute white cat, but could not find it. it seemed to be hiding away from me... finally, giving up, i walked over to the bed and uncover the sheets to find the grey cat sleeping in my bed when it started to talk to me. i had a nagging feeling that something was not right about this conversation with the cat, but i just couldn't put my finger on it. a certain ghostly quality appeared about the grey cat, like a child-like ghost... i told the cat: it's ok for you to sleep here, but you have to be good. then walked over to the head of the bed and saw huge speakers there attached to an ancient stereo system with many many wires. the wires led into a hole in the wall and i just kept saying to myself: hmmm, these are influence lines.... WAKE.
well this is my dream log. thank you for reading.
i wonder what the grey cat will dream of next... :)
