Dreamt of playing catch with a football with a group of friends. We were scattered on the beach on the shallow water. A floating platform was anchored a little further out. The sky was bright over the lake. A friend missed a pass and the ball spiraled into the water on the other side of the dock. The ball stuck into the water, point first, much like and arrow would stick into its target. The football continued to spin, point down, as it moved from the other side of the dock to within easy reach and stopped there, still spinning. We were all mystified.
Dreamt of coming across a teen-aged girl showing something to a group of smaller children. It was a small bird’s nest tucked into the rocks next to the sidewalk. The mother bird was there, screaming her head off, trying to scare the people way.
“Just leave the birds alone,” I told the girl.
She snarled at me and kicked at one of the baby birds, which had stepped out of the nest to make little peeping noises at her. I was shocked. How could anyone be so cruel? I had no idea how to respond. Anything I did would likely lead to more pain for the birds.
Dreamt of lying in a bathtub. The water was warm but wasn’t quite enough to cover my body. It was still very comfortable and I ended up falling asleep. When I awoke, I was chilled. All the water had evaporated, leaving my lying on a damp sheet.
Dreamt of standing in the corner in a packed house party. It was so crowded I could barely move. The man right in front of me got in an argument with the man in front of him. Someone was upset that someone got pushed or something and a fight was about to break out with my caught right next to it. I try to push passed, but doing so aggravated the one man so much that he forgot his previous target and started shoving me. I shoved him back and we started throwing punches. But it was so crowded neither of us could get a good swing in.
Dreamt I was sitting at the side of along table with two friends. A third friend approached with their dog, who had white, loosely curled fur. The dog ran at me at full speed, tail wagging, and jumped under the table and into my lap. It wiggled and tried licking my face as I petted it. Not wanting to disrupt what was happening at the table, I moved to the bench on the other side, and I realized I was on a train. The third friend’s son ran up to me, as excited as the dog. But when he got close, he stopped, waved, then jump up on the bench on the other side of the train. He stood there and watched the scenery pass by.
Dreamt of visiting Yuko-hime at her apartment. Her mint green cat regarded me with suspicion as I approached her cat bed. It was a white laundry basket lined with a blue blanket and packed with pillows and furs. I wasn’t sure I could get in, but managed to by curling up into a fetal position. The cat slowly approached, not sure what to make of the human in her bed. I patted the blanket next to me and the cat jumped in and curled up in the crook of my arm. I wanted to think the cat did so out of affection, but I suspected it wanted my warmth.
Dreamt of trying to coordinate a trip with a friend. He and I were flying out to a different city. His wife was flying off to another city. He was supposed to meet his wife at her location. We were trying to figure out if it made more sense for him to fly back with him to our original location with me, or to fly from where we were straight to his wife. If he flew straight to his wife, how would I get home? I told him, “Just go to your wife. I’ll find my own way home.”
