Flying Dream

I have sat behind the controls of an airplane and flown more than once. I know that when you turn, you tend to lose altitude and have to compensate.

Last night I dreamed I was flying and airplane and turning but I was unable to compensate and was losing altitude. In the dream I remember the realization that I must compensate for the lost altitude. I remember the feeling of uncertainty as I either could not or did not know how to maintain altitude during my turn.

What does it mean? It seems pretty obvious. The turn is a change in my life and the inability to compensate for lost altitude is difficulty in the change.

Or else it’s just a dream about flying an airplane and means nothing. Have a good long weekend!

On Being Invisible

I dreamed last night I was driving around and came to a very remote “park” at a long dead end. I expected it to be deserted, but there were people there. It was dark, but people were laying on the beach like it was sunny. Nobody seemed to notice me.

i walked around more, down gravel paths through scraggly trees. I found a circular “hole” cut in the ground with steps all around going down. Like a little mini arena where someone could give speeches to small crowds of people. The thought crossed my mind that I had walked into a cult, where the leader eventually says “drink the Kool Aid” and everybody drinks and everybody dies.

But I was immune. Nobody could see me. I wasn’t invisible, just unnoticeable, like so often in real life. I go somewhere, I don’t see anyone I recognize, I don’t talk to anyone, nobody talks to me. I take care of whatever I came to take care of and leave. Not invisible, but unseen.

The dream was kind of like growing up, I didn’t want to be noticed by my parents, if I did something they thought was bad, I’d be punished, if I did something they thought was good (rarely) they’d say “see, our strict discipline and punishments are very effective, aren’t you glad we forced you to do that good thing?” That’s not necessarily accurate, but how I.perceived things. I wanted to be invisible to my parents.

It was a weird dream, but at the same time, normal. I was the same me as I always am. I was sitting in a chair in the woods, last thing I remember in the dream, and it had gotten light. It was a lugubrious patch of woods, sticker-bush thorny trees and grey, cloudy light.

I’m glad I woke up here instead of there, because today is FRIDAY!

Have a great weekend!

Dec 7th

I was sleeping hard when the alarm went off this morning. Dreaming I was doing dangerous things. Like trying to drill moving parts. One dangerous thing after another. Not following safety rules. I wish I could remember, some were amusing.

Dec 7. Pearl Harbor. Manrique died.

heavier-than-air toxic gas

Last night I was asleep, dreaming about why I couldn’t sleep. I deduced there must be a toxic, heavier-than-air gas in the area that I was sleeping. As I move around, I stir it up, sometimes inhaling it, sometimes not, sometimes mixing it with good air. I decided I was sleeping in some type of bowl and when I woke up I would have to use a fan to blow all the heavier-than-air toxic gas out of the bowl. Then I’d sleep well.

Overall, I woke up thinking I slept well. And according to my tracker, it was one of my best night’s sleep ever. Dreaming about not sleeping was just a dream

Have a wonderful day!

Diving Elephants?

this morning I was dreaming that I was scuba diving on a shipwreck. It was a beautiful, upright shipwreck . Crystal clear Blue warm water good visibility a nice dive. Probably 50 to 80 ft deep. In the dream, I was surprised to see a very large elephant standing on the deck of the ship. I swam forward on the ship and there was another elephant standing on the bottom off the port side forward. There were also two dolphins, still, apparently looking at the elephant. My thought was, “I didn’t know elephants could go that this deep” it was a very pleasant dream and a nice dive.

it seemed like I was sleeping well when the alarm went off this morning. I wonder which is better, to have my sleep disturbed by the alarm? Or to be awake already when the alarm goes off? It’s a real poser.

it’s almost the weekend, tomorrow is Friday hooray!

Lisa All Clear

We’ve been given the all clear from Tropical Storm Lisa. She’s expected to curve way south now.

I hope hurricane season is over now.

I went to bed early last night, told myself not to worry when I woke up super early. I woke up earlier than usual, but it was ok.

I dreamed about painting the inside of my house. (I’m still waiting for the money to catch up so I can do the outside). Then I started thinking about proactive spending versus reactive spending. Weirdness in the dream world.

have a great day!

New Alarm Sound?

I have discovered what would be a good sound for an alarm The sound of a dog puking. I was dreaming last night about diving and talking fish. (Anglerfish can’t speak well because their mouths are so narrow and they’re quite upset about it.)

All of a sudden, I was awake, up and into action, because Daisy the dawg threw up. I got her out of the mess and cleaned it up. (She puked in her kennel, she sleeps there even though the door is open.)

That sound wakes you up good and fast, with no fuzzbrain or grogginess. Pop tall, high alert!

That’s my thought for the day, we need a dogpuke alarm sound for the alarm clock.

Enjoy your day, unless you’ve made other plans.

New World Record

This morning I picked my biggest pepper ever off my mutant plant. This is the plant seeded from the bell pepper seeds but the peppers are all shaped like the picture. They taste like bell peppers though. The other plant makes bell pepper shaped bell peppers.

Went to have a dental cleaning yesterday. She had her forearm on my chest and my head was touching her side. It occurred to me that “this is the first time I’ve felt anybody else’s body heat in probably two years. I think that’s why greeting hugs from friends don’t count as human contact.

Anyway, it was interesting.

Yesterday, it was raining and I took a lunchtime nap in my van. I think I slept really deep and hard. Tess good.

Last night I dreamed I was on the beach and the ex wife came walking by. She was wearing a modest black one piece Nike swimsuit and had a dog on a leash in her right hand and a yellow kitten in the crook of her left arm. I didn’t see the dog I was alone on the beach but scrambled to get away from the person sitting next to me as I stood up so she wouldn’t think we were together. The ex wife was smiling and looked happy and healthy. It was a pleasant dream and good to see her.

Today is a Wednesday, the weather is looking good. (West Bay (center of the universe) DID end up getting some good rain yesterday after all, if you read yesterdays post.) I expect today will be a snorkeling lunch hour.

Have a wonderful day.

Weird Wake Up

This morning I woke up and got up before the alarm. I was having stressful sleep, not in that it was stressful, but in that I couldn’t steer my thoughts in the direction I wanted to steer them. Among other things, I kept thinking about this woman with green hair. I knew where she was, and I had to get up to go find her.

But when I woke up, I didn’t know where to find her. I couldn’t remember. Keep an eye out for her, will you?

glad it’s Friday. Have a good weekend!

Cactus Repot

Before
After

This weekend I repotted a giant cactus that I have disliked for quite a long time. I the top picture, it is in the cube pot, almost as tall as me. In the “After” picture, well, that pot is about 4 inches on each side and the cactus is as big as my thumb.

Last night, I dreamed this while day through. I already went to work, forgot about jury duty and talked to the boss. I also went scuba diving and got stuck in a hole whilst trying to get a good shot of a banded shrimp. All last night in my dreams.

i tried to mow the lawn this weekend, and ended up taking the mower to he Repair Shop. It’s ridiculous. The mower dies because short, dry grass is too much load for it 3 feet and restart 3 feet and restart. Very annoying.

Im off to work now. (Although I’ve already been there, done that). Have a good day!
