    1. 2022-11-06 much worse sleep, but some late morning weak dreams

      by , 11-06-2022 at 09:28 AM
      Didn't take any L-theanine, only took 500mg L-tryptophan, and BOY what a difference! Poor sleep (LOOONG wakeful period about 4:30-7 or longer), no dreaming, until miraculously I was able to fall asleep between around 7 and 7:30, and had some dreams, which I remembered fairly well, especially the ones closer to waking. But fairly weak, low awareness, presence generally low

      + observing two girls (in a park?) by a fence, a young girl and her older late teen sister. I have some eye contact with the older sister, briefly. Then another woman lies near them. I have a vague view of the older girl's and the woman's privates. My [deceased 1st] wife goes to take a closer look at them. I think they're gypsies. MEO

      + back inside my home, I'm doing something (reading?) when earlier wife comes in and asks me to do something, to which I feel irritation, but then our sons (as young boys) both enter the room and this alleviates the need to do anything / get up and I feel relief.

      + I'm walking outside on a path (snowy?) pass by two young women walking. I glance to the right and see a rectangular (black) sleeping bag laid out on the ground on a spot I think where people sleep. I arrive to a place where I'm looking for son S1, he's supposed to be doing something productive (studying?) but instead I see him peek out from around a wall where I know he's playing on the computer instead.

      Later I'm walking and hear S1 screech and think he's cut his arm very badly, and is bleeding. I come up to him, he's seated with his back to me, and he is cradling his (right?) arm like it's hurt. I do not see any wound.

      + I'm inspecting a low garden fence [DS, inspecting an object closely] and thinking about its construction. The front is a bit weather-beaten and rotting, while on the back side, where it's open and you can see the construction, the wood seems in good shape. It is constructed by a bunch of vertical rectangular wooden boards all bound together. A section farther on is a combination of brick, mortar and wood, and the seam between the brick and wood is badly done and the brick part wobbles loose if you touch it. I wonder about the good wooden part, how it's not rotten if it's been exposed to the rain for a long time.

      Then son S2 is digging around in a box around the brick area and a very large insect emerges, I think at first it's a pill bug, that sort of big and scary bug, but it gets bigger and crawls out, and I end up bashing it with a stick or something and it deflates and is stunned, the texture like a partially deflated mylar balloon. Son S1 and I get close to look at it and I see a head of a rabbit, and I think & say that this was a zombie bug that infected the rabbit. We have now to put the rabbit out of its misery, I'm squeamish and get son S1 to do it, I think he'll have to cover it with a blanket and stomp on its head to kill it, but I think that this will spray its guts all over the place and be very messy.
    2. 2022-11-05 again some decent recall, over a couple wakings

      by , 11-05-2022 at 07:37 PM
      2022-11-05 long night of dreaming! Many scenes, lots of fragments

      + church buys casino, it's Fr. Oleg's job to manage the parking garage, he takes out the garbage and I think this is an undignified job for a priest. Walk up the street, I need a medical procedure, I can't remember the word for the organ in [foreign lang], finally I remember, "kidney! <in f.l.>" I say. I need to take off my thin, blue casmere sweater, I start to take it off and can't get it off over my head, it gets stuck on my hat, and I need to put it back on in order to take off my hat. Fr. Oleg offer to help me but I shoo him off prefering to manage it myself. The people next to us are laughing at me, especially a woman, who says "need to take a pic of that and put it on the internet!"

      + I'm phasing through a series of doors leading into an office/building up a few stairs. This is an ability I know I have. (pre-lucid?) like 3 doors. "There is no door", I phase through easily. I think somebody may be following me. Then a loud waking sound shocks me awake instantly.

      + Walking into Wil. (B jr high) school, lots of B's, leave my dog outside on street?

      + First big snow outside, about a foot, it's hard to open the door, it will be our dog's first experience in the snow

      + Scheduling a meeting with someone. My "wife" is criticizing me that I'm too calm, I need to be more forceful, so I get very aggressive and call again, she praises me. I can feel how the anger is not the way I want to be.

      + Brief scene at a sleepover of attractive girls, they pose for a picture, I notice how hot they are

      + Girl on a jumpy slide in a leotard, her (mother?) and someone else sniff her private parts as she slides down, they conclude yes, she is stinky there.

      + Playing informal basketball with two guys in a fairly dark indoor court. Making shots, layups, the ball sometimes hangs on the rim before falling. I show I can jump and grab the hoop, this means I can dunk if I want to.

      + Playing with a rifle, young kid, older dark skinned guy in a corridor, I try to point the rifle at the older guy who is standing right up next to me, I can't since he's so close, so I lean over and put the rifle but down between my legs and point it at the guy and look at him and show that I can still aim it at him. Later, I squeeze the trigger (there's some thought about the trigger needs to be pressed for a few seconds before it will fire) and get off a shot at his head, which leaves a very small indentation on his forehead, he's looking right at me as I do this, I'm pretty close to him.
      + Standing with a dog and some people outside in a city environment on a sidewalk with some trees, quite busy street there are cars driving by, a sort of wild weird looking wolfman comes across the street, I don't want him to join us, but then an aggressive / annoying dog comes to us and he sort of distracts the dog. "Good," I think, "yes, take that dog away." I notice that on the street a car is turning left and heading right for us (I guess we're in the street), and I tell everybody to look out.

      A pretty good night of dreaming! No recall for first several wakings. Recall seems to start up around 4 hours and later on recent nights. Maybe because of the sleep-promoting supplements I'm taking
    3. 2022-11-03 some decent vivid dreams

      by , 11-03-2022 at 04:59 PM
      No sleep supplements at all, shorter night, but good recall across multiple wakings, some very vivid experiences:

      + car parked at work covered with colored, neon, animated chalk graffiti, stare at it along time, some (kid?) comes and wipes it off leaving a white/grey smudge

      + in traffic planning route through bad traffic, into parking garage, try to avoid scammy "helper" at the kiosk, but end up giving him a tip of a fistful of coins, a mixture of quarters and pennies

      + submarine/torpedo battle in a river

      + at former company N, eating chips on display in hallway, fill up a plate to take back to my cube, black CEO asks me about my kids, walk into a cube and past a bunch of engineers in open cubes bumping into them in super narrow hallway; standing in the kitchen looking out at the organization of break room tables

      + cutting and handing out wedding cake, discuss the sizes in grams, want to cut double sized for me & wife

      + at the fence of my property and neighbors, clothes are hanging, neighbors push open fence and come in, I want to weld it shut again; ice cream machine in operation, neighbors don't want to go with the workers
    4. 2022-11-02 galantamine and lots of dreams

      by , 11-03-2022 at 04:05 PM
      galantamine night, better/more recall but no lucids (but hey, I got back to sleep!)

      night theme: digging/ditches/ground depressions

      + waking in my outside bunk bed at the university early (4:45am?) while the students flock in to class; The beds are along a wall perpendicular outside a university building. In the distance to my right (my back is to the building, there are groups of students arriving for gym class I think. Then waves of students begin arriving to the building where my bed is.
      I think maybe a bus has delivered them. Among the throng ofpeople I see a high school familiar face [just someone I knew, wasn't friends], I remembered her as the short girl with the odd eyes/face. Also in the crowd one topless girl walks by and into the building. I'm standing a bit back from my bed/bunk, and I see my black backpack is slightly leaning over the concrete wall, I pull it back so it doesn't fall over. I'm thinking that I want to go inside the building to a bathroom and wash my face and brush my teeth, I may go in with a friend who sleeps nearby.

      + [mix 1st and 3rd person] I'm riding/observing a bike rider who makes miles high jumps from out of swimming-pool ground depressions, jumping from area to area several times, it's amazing how it works I think

      + [long, vivid] sitting at table outside with girl, on a patio/walkway outside a low apartment/townhouse complex, I bring out a surprise pie, then she brings out a surprise pie (one was sweet, one was savory), we want to find a room, since neither of us have a private room, we're walking around the area and think we're going to get use of a room in the area, but then I see another couple arrive and then more people, and think it will be hard to get the room now. But we get use of a secret staff room from a friend (older woman with grey hair?) which has a below-ground claustrophobic labyrinth entrance, very narrow between concrete walls, and a complicated door mechanism with bars and bolts that require two hands to operate. I finally manage to open it, and we walk inside, the room which is also a cafeteria with a long curved wall of windows/glass walls [DS], there's a hallway beyond and I want privacy, so I pull shut the sheer curtains, and think we should also turn out the lights, because if they lights are on they'd still see us through the thin curtains. People arrive and eat, I walk past the mojito stand, I think about mojitos and list the ingredients ("mint, soda, alcohol"), but I do not want to drink any it's too early in the day. Walk past a group of girls all dressed in color-coordinated PJs (tops and bottoms same pattern/design).

      + a friend calls me into the ditch he's digging, he moons me right up close, I see everything (he's a hermaphrodite), I think he's making a pass at me

      + Star trek dream, observe the Enterprise speeding out of the solar system at light speed, whizzing past planets (which are all yelllow). One view is a side view from very far away as it streaks past a yellow Jupiter:

      I envy you all-dream-image-2022-11-02.jpg

      + riding a motorcycle up to a fuel/cake stand (the cake is the fuel), they want to sell me the Cinnabon with frosting but think the frosting will mess with the engine, I take away several to share with my wife and eat one as I leave

      + observing people disembarking from a low [night theme] dock, there are two ladders (I need to choose), thinking that the close one is dangerous/unstable, the people come up the near ladder, climbing all up at the same time and even on top of each other

      + riding a bike through a city-scape, on the lookout for bike thieves, enter a bookstore run by two odd small baby-men, they mention an animal nesting on the shelf running around the top of the store (I don't see it), I turn and leave, noticing a book on the right-hand wall shelf as I exit
    5. 2022-11-01 car-jack trap, S2 on bus, marking rocky locations on dock to river

      by , 11-01-2022 at 07:04 AM
      + walking to my car after (work? in a school?) I notice that some thugs back up their car directly in front of mone on the street (about 50 feet away from where I'm standing) and completely box me in, there was a car already on my rear bumper. I recognize it as a trap and turn around immediately and head back to my building, where I think I should call the police. While there (or before?) I'm trying to pick up a lot of different food/groceries and have trouble getting them all into my hands at once

      + on a bus heading down Ced. street at Euc. S2 (gets off)? starts walking down E

      + on a terrace at my (new place?) with L (wife) standing on the dock where it meets the river, looking into the clear water [DS!] I see a big shallow boulder right next to the edge, perspective shifts to standing in the river looking at the dock and I want to apply some red/white stripped hazard tape on to the dock to mark the location of hte large stone so that nobody tries to dive/jump at that point. While doing so I notice another very large shallow stone, and again want to mark off its location with hazard tape. I look across to another outside area along the water which is a rocky coastline, and a bear is there, I notice it is painting the wooden boards along the hillside and I think this is good but I had wanted to claim that area earlier to be ours. It moves into hailing position looking at me and I wave my arms and shout a greeting, it's now not a bear but a large rough looking man like Andre the giant, and he calls back that it's "good to exercise your quadraceps". I that there's no chance now to claim that area, it would be a conflict with that guy.
