    1. 2021-09-10 parking, SB, classroom, clothing failure; driving with mom & dad & RO, observatory, work

      by , 09-10-2021 at 04:02 PM
      bedtime ~ 22:30
      ~120ml red wine at about 21:45

      final waking ~06:00, quite drowsy still, bathroom, back to bed for WILD attempt, but no imagery, wake up too fast, relaxation not effective.

      Couple of longer, quite vivid dreams:

      + parking in traffic, make a u-turn through traffic to a side street, park on the right but the right wheels of the car run up on a large wooden wall on the curb, and then plops back down level to the ground. Get out of the car and am walking with a mini-version of ex-gf SB: she's really short, and half-naked (no bottoms), and I think people may get the wrong idea since she's so small. She stumbles/falls forwards and I notice that she is wearing something below, a sort of thong, so she's not completely 1/2 naked.

      Inside, I'm in a large classroom. to a building, attend a seminar in a large classroom where I proudly describe my start-up experiences ("yes, I was founding member number 10!")
      (about company R, not a founder, but early employee #10), to a crowd of kids at their desks. I wake up (in bed?) and there's a girl there, I don't want SB to get the wrong idea (?), some people are coming in and I'm still in my underwear, I quickly grab a pile of clothes and in a panic try to put them on. I hear outside in the corridor people talking, there is some sort of gather/exposition going on and people will be arriving to this room soon. The clothes are all wadded up in a tight pile and despite pushing and pulling I can't undo the knot. JL [manager company K] is standing nearby(?). Eventually I get the pants on(?)

      + riding [right rear seat] in car with dad [driving], mom [front passenger], RbOrs [bs trp5], we're driving through town. The conversation with RO (who may not be RO?) turns to work, someone says (me? him?) yeah, you don't want to go tor the "2" group, because RbOrs is the manager." I think that I may perhaps go then work for the "3" group, but I'm not sure my qualifications are good enough. I want to go to a store and get something to eat, and sort of want to get away from mom & dad. I mention I want to go to the store, but mom smiles and says something cheerful, and mentions a store different from the one I want to go to, and that (I'd get right back in the car?). I see the profile of her face, short hair, she looks very young, vibrant, and happy.

      We're driving through a treed area up hill (in Str Canyon in B?), and dad mentions taking us to the "Strawberry Cafe, where you can have some cold beers,". We enter a large open area, and my attention is riveted all of a sudden on a huge structure in the distance that fills my vision: it is a massive construct like an observatory. It is lit in the sun, and a bit out of focus, sort of white/orangish color. I see that about 20-30 feet away there are a series of steps and landings leading up to the observatory, and there is a long line of people waiting there winding up the stairs.

      Inside, I'm inside a new version of the old company "R". I hear different remembered voices/people (execs) in offices nearby. I'm thinking that my experience in company "N" will mean they'll certainly want me back here again. I see founder "J" [who sold all his shares], and think "oh, he's still here." I see a [T-shirt? some cloth] with a bunch of signatures written in colorful ink of the early employees/founders, and think I see my signature there.

    2. 2021-09-09 baseball camp, work cafeteria

      by , 09-09-2021 at 02:03 PM
      + [DO] Outdoor, daytime. At a youth baseball training camp, observing the pitching practice mound, which is a large, tall, narrow volcano-like mound with an open bowl top, where players practicing pitching are throwing baseballs. The dirt bowl at the top of the mound absorbs the force of the throws, the balls go THUDD THUDD THUDD as they are thrown into the mound. Some pitches miss and are thrown far beyond the mound. They I'm observing fielding practice from the POV of the player: the balls are thrown up into the sky and the fielders run to catch the balls.

      + lunch at work cafeteria [DS]: large indoor area with long serving tables and picnic-style seating tables. On the main long serving table (traditional with slanted glass to covers and heating trays, there are large chunks of meat like beef. I look at these and they are very unappetizing, looking very red and hardly cooked at all. There are stations along the serving table where people are grilling/cooking their chopped meat further. The contents look very blackened, mixed with something lighter which might be bread or pita-like bread. Further away I see a table/cashier stand where people are buying alternative lunches that look like burgers.

      I serve myself a plate, it's very gloppy and seems to be made mostly of rice. It does not look appetizing. I take this to a seating area picnic-style table and sit down at the right corner of the table. In front of me is a steaming container like is used in Dim Sum restaurants. I think this belongs to ChrCh (company 3, B, N, S) who's sitting at a nearby table. I peek under the lid of the steamer basked and see what look like very tasty looking dumplings. ChrCh says I can have them(?).

      Leave and come back to the table, which is now populated by a bunch of young workers. I sit down at my spot and the guy across from me says "you can't sit here, we're having a meeting." He looks very stern. I say "I was here first," but decide to heck with it, and get up and go look for another table, leaving in a huff.

      + competition for youth orchestra spots (all string players?), the management says "you'll know when you're accepted"

      WILD attempt after final waking but too awake, can't even get to imagery

    3. 2021-09-06 mall detective, soccer in park

      by , 09-06-2021 at 03:12 PM
      "trust" method

      + talking with a (detective)? at a kiosk at a mall, get on the down escalator, and the detective is talking about some investigator, a young man whom I briefly visualize

      + I'm standing outside in a very large park with open fields and mature trees, the place looks abandoned and the bushes/trees look like they need watering. I'm remembering earlier times there, this is a place I used to come to a lot. I'm pointing out former athletic fields at various locations around the park as we walk around. Then I'm playing in a game of soccer, my feet are clumsy and I play poorly, I keep trying to kick in a direction perpendicular to the right with my right leg, but I can't generate any strength in that configuration. After several fumbling attempt to manage the ball, finally I get in a skillful quick assist to my teammate in front of me and he quickly kicks the ball into the goal.

    4. 2021-09-04 short dreams, catching up on sleep

      by , 09-04-2021 at 03:22 PM
      bedtime: 00:00
      final waking: 09:23

      pretty good sleep. Recall enhanced with the "trust/give up" mindset, and eased back to sleep with some pre-WILD sensations.


      + sitting around the table with people in white tuxedos

      + winding through multi-line tight traffic with other cars to the right pushing in front of me, make a right turn and then a quick u-turn to the curb because the light had turned red

      + I see miniature hedgehog-like creatures through the glass door out on the deck, then Chewbacca comes from the right and enters the house, I'm worried he might step on the little guys

      + [vague, fragmented] I'm with my late wife, and she's accusing me of wanting to <foreign slang word for sex> somebody, which I deny

      early forgotten, pretty good mid/later longer vivid-ish dream

      [early]
      + some long sequence about a school?

      [mid/later] work job, single day contract, I've been here before, "recognize" former coworkers in the large kitchen/lounge, a number of scenes

      + I'm arriving in a car-pool to a work location: somewhere fairly remote, the employer provided the vehicle. As I move from the car to the building entrance, (bright daylight, blue sky?), I think these building are (or are just like) the round-domed movie theaters of the Century 21, 22, 23 complex in San Jose. Entering the building, I'm in a kitchen/break room, very large, with couches and vending machines, and people spread around the room, the focus of attention is on me/our group entering. I look around the room and think that I recognize a lot of these people, both men and women, and I have a thought that they are still working here after all this time. I may have had a relationship with a young woman standing with her back to the vending machine on the other side of the room

      At a desk, trying to figure out if it will be a good work place for me, if the height will be appropriate. Two other guys need it for a meeting so I need to find another place.

      Sitting at a workplace in front of a glass wall [DS], a colleague/woman


      + The Queen of England does not let me interrupt her conversation with a man I want to speak with (I didn't realize she was the Queen until she tapped me on the shoulder to get me to back off and I got a better look at her and realize she's the queen).

    6. 2021-09-03 insomnia, brief Tribes & Lion dream

      by , 09-03-2021 at 09:27 AM
      Late bedtime, champagne and wayyyy too much ice cream before bed -- insomnia from 4am on. Finally nodded off around 7am briefly:

      Falling asleep veeeeryyy slowly I saw a lot of hypnagogic imagery, including a short dreamlet of the face of my fiance seen from above in bed, who in my vision opened her eyes, looked at me, then closed her eyes.

      + playing Tribes, initially, I'm DO and preparing to play another human player on some server. Play begins and I'm hovering in the air, lobbing grenades ("r" key) to clear out a base with an inventory station. There are a lot of damaged turrets around. I get in to use the inventory station, use my hotkey to select Engineer load-out with a deployable inventory station, anticipating all the time that my opponent will blast me, but I finish at the station without issues , jet-packing around ("right clicking the mouse"), planning play against human player, then attacking robot defenders of the enemy base. Hovering with the jet-pack above the enemy base, I see enemy turrets that start to activate as I approach lower.
      There are many gray, person-shaped robots standing idle, and some of these also start to move as I get closer.

      I have a close-up view of chopped/rolled (like sushi?) food/meat, and I have a tiny light-saber and I'm waving it at the food, chopping it. I see to my right that there is a calm tiger, and I do not want to provoke it. I'm eating this miscellaneous food in front of me, which becomes mostly meat, like chicken meat, then the tiger to my right is more in the scene, it is resting, with its very large paws out in front of it, it looks more like a mountain lion or now. I very carefully (thinking this is perhaps foolish) reach between the pawns of the lion and pull out a piece of meat that it was holding there, and eat it.

    7. 2021-09-02 weak-ish recall, a lot forgotten

      by , 09-02-2021 at 07:04 AM
      Bedtime too late + too much arguing on FB right before bed + too late dinner = weak recall

      conclusion: GET TO BED BEFORE MIDNIGHT. 22:30-23:00 preferable.
      GET OFF OF THE COMPUTER SEVERAL HOURS BEFORE BED
      Stop arguing on Facebook. It's like teaching a pig to sing: it just wastes your time, and annoys the pig (Mark Twain).
      Take time to calm the mind.

      At least I slept a pretty solid almost 8 hours.

      Bedtime: 00:20
      final Wake: 08:00

      + earlier very active dreams, lots of people [DS] busily doing various tasks, details forgotten

      + in a large, rectangular exercise room, I'm at the entrance on a long wall, my son and a woman on the opposite wall right corner from me, on their stomachs, doing very high back bends. Their upper torsos and arms are raised high in the air, they're amazed themselves, and say that there is (some force?) aiding their ability to do this high back bends so easily. I try myself, I enter the room, turn to face where I entered, and showed that I was able to also do very high back bend, without the aid of this force. I tell them to come over to me and the other corner and to try there (they do?). I go to the corner where they were and do another high back bend, I do not see the difference and think there is probably no force.

      A woman clerk comes up to me and is perplexed about the backbend force, and then the topic becomes something about cosmetic products on a shelf (?)

    8. 2021-09-01 failed WILD, handful of short fragments

      by , 09-01-2021 at 10:35 AM
      bedtime ~ 00:15 (too late!)
      final waking: ~08:20

      Failed WILD from 4 to ~6 hours after bedtime disrupted REM and sleep rhythm, resulting in low awareness, fragmented, short dreams when I finally did manage to get back to sleep (approx ~6 to 8 hours)

      Felt sufficiently drowsy, but spent too long thinking about overly-stimulating thoughts/dream goals.
      Once or twice got to hypnagogic imagery (a bright orange fire in the distance).
      Had to focus 100% on prolonged total mind and body relaxation in order to sleep, had to turn over several times because of arms going a bit numb

      + Playing indoor soccer with another woman against the Queen of England, using a transparent beach ball containing some papers, the other woman is hogging the ball, I get a couple of kicks and finally score a goal

      + My fiance and I are eating some baked goods in the kitchen, I see some more on the counter and reach for it, but she doesn't want me to eat it

      + My cousins are holding a crafts workshop, it's a sort of race building things out of large-sized double-tipped cotton ear swabs on a mini-loom-contraption, I have to use it right-handed so will probably lose

      + [f] I kick a soccer ball, it goes straight, I think about kicking technique and ball angle, I think I made a pretty good shot

      + observing a football play, the offensive quarterback is fumbling/juggling the football, then heads backwards into tall grass to hide [goes into hospital beyond grass?]

      + friend is selling time-limited internet access coupons on the side of the road, there are several foreign customers paying foreign currency, one buys one coupon, another buys a handful, I think this is a surprisingly profitable business

      + inside a room, there is a row of work booths with lower and upper levels, I think there is not much room inside, you can't stand up in them

      by , 08-25-2021 at 03:09 PM
      early:
      + [something about N&A]
      + comparing my very deeply tanned (nearly black) arm vs. my friends, to see who has the darkest tan, 3-4 arms all put side-by-side, at first I think mine's darker but then think grade-school friend EB's is darker
      + [doing something with some guy]

      mid/final [early waking]
      + I'm hosting an outside party where the guests are all seated in an outdoor amphitheater [DS], A (of N&A [DS]) asks for a Coke, go to get it from the cooler, I can't find it but see A's retainer in the cooler bottom
      + Looking up at a snowy hill through a chain-link fence, tell guy there that "well this year the snow didn't make it through the fence at least," at that moment some snow breaks off and rolls down to the fence, "spoke too soon!" I say
      + In a crowded (school?) corridor with people, looking at brightly colored small plastic packages (like individual tea packs) in a display case, turn to "friend" near me to say something and realize it's some random girl I don't know, continue observing the contents of the display case

      2021-08-23

      Late bedtime always wreaks havoc on recall, as does watching videos before bed. Almost not recall at all, but managed to dig up a couple fragments:

      + On top of some tall moving platform, I'm intercepting footballs tossed by the opposing team players who are playing on the ground below me

      + In the back seat of a car going somewhere juggling some items, the people in the front are talking to me about something


      2021-08-24

      Weak recall phase...hoping for more upticks soon!

      + Tossing an Aerobie indoors then outdoors with some guy
      Share

      2021-08-25

      Scotch-fueled dreaming night, pretty good in fact:

      [early]

      + [people in places -- forgotten]

      + racquetball/squash: playing 2-on-1 2 young woman against me, I can't make shots, I call interference several times, one of them disagrees and cites the rule

      + playing a hand of poker: I'm dealt a full house (A-A-10-10-10, plus some other cards), I bet too aggressively too soon and everybody folds, I gather the cards to avoid showing my hand and shuffle

      [mid]
      + in a small "dune-bug" like vehicle with a really long gear shift handle, I'm showing that it's hard to stall this thing

      + [late fragment] working out in a gym [DS]?

      + outside in a flea market, I see lots of garbage/litter on the ground in my area, I think about cleaning it; I'm arranging my passports and documents on a table, I'm concerned it's open and accessible to all, so I try to move a small portable table between the walkway and my documents, I think (somebody says?) it won't be enough to protect them

      [late]
      + in a low small boat with a black dangerous animal (cougar/puma?) sitting right behind my, nuzzles my head from behind, I'm leery of it, deja vu, scene repeats

      + enter and move through a cluttered shop, narrow aisles, follow a girl(?) she's trying to sell something(?), I give the proprietor a handful of papers to sell he looks at them and says they're "Honda parts," and I see he has a large Honda-branded section against one wall; he opens a small box full of papers and puts my papers into the box

    10. 2021-08-20 increased recall over multiple wakings: stop light, night jogging, hotel fiasco

      by , 08-20-2021 at 09:50 AM
      3 distinct recall periods, and one long vivid/present dream to finish things off, a good night and welcome improvement!

      Bedtime 22:30
      3mg melatonin about 22:00

      Final waking 09:23

      Still moving immediately after waking, but thinking of recall very soon after waking

      Nothing written until morning.

      04:00
      [early]
      + [something with people in places -- forgotten]
      + I'm driving a car at night I'm stopped at a stop light at a T intersection (on the vertical leg of the "T" facing the top bar on the right hand side of the street. I'm waiting for the green light. I notice that the light has turned "grey", the lower circle that is normally green has turned grey. I'm anticipating the green, I'm preparing to turn right. The light turns green, and the guy behind me honks as I'm beginning to move, I think he's really impatient. I make the right turn but something's off: on top of the road is a huge, tall pile of loose dirt, the entire roadway has been covered with it going on in that directly. I'm a bit concerned about being stuck, I realize this is a construction zone and I need to get out of here. I turn around and head back to the intersection, driving in the tamped-down area of the dirt in the middle. The car drifts a bit to the right and I'm a bit concerned but it holds straight enough and I enter the intersection, now preparing to turn left at the light, which is still green for me, there are a lot of cars in the oncoming direction. The light is turning red but I decide to complete the turn regardless.


      MILD, SSILD, recall, relaxation just couldn't grasp one of the earlier scene sequences
      Visualization, some dream arm floating started, some dreamlets

      06:30 Still awake, but getting drowsy
      Go for full relaxation, "give up," "let it happen," "stop trying"

      [mid]
      + FA, check clock, it's 11:23, boy it's late, time to get up
      + Outside jogging, I decide to get some exercise, I'll probably sweat, but I feel light on my feet, I'm wearing sweat pants. It's early morning, buildings/shops are not open yet, see women in headcoverings outside [Muslim?], I'm thinking about location and directions, the place I need to get to is ahead and to the right. I run up to some buildings, I think it's a bank, there's a man standing there. I turn right run past closed bank, into a still-closed suburban business district

      09:23
      [late]
      + [dreamlet] Looking at a rectangular sign with red LEDs forming words, on top of garage roof
      + ... standing inside some area with some people (not seen) looking out into a terrace. There is an oversized grey couch there. I am really liking the look of this thing: it is very long, very wide, with ample room to sleep on. I think you could sleep with your SO there very comfortably. I'm going on and on about how attractive and comfortable that couch looks.

      I'm outside (on that couch) lying down to sleep. I wake up, and there is a deja-vu sequence about waking up and reaching for my retainer, which I'd put aside on a side table when lying down to sleep, this repeats at least once.

      There is now the issue of paying the hotel bill. There is a group of who slept on that terrace (it's a hotel apparently), had coffee and breakfast (which I didn't remember), and now we are being charged as a group for it, despite us not being "together" in any way. There is one young man who cannot pay his bill, "I'm trying to get home" he says. I'm grumpy that we have to pay the way of this young freeloader who can't pay his bill. I'm closely examining a pile of receipts detailing the costs and who they're for, but can't make much sense out of them. Still grumbling about paying, our group gets on a bus. There is a woman in our group who decides to foot the bill for the young man. She takes out a large wad of cash in order to do so. I think that I should show some Christian charity and pay for his bill as well. On the bus I take out my wallet and want to pay the woman, I take out my wallet and my cash is strange looking, like colored paper and receipts. I want to give her half of what she paid for the young man.

      Our group is waking up and gathering, we've stayed somewhere in separate hotels. "Did you like the facilities of your place?" the woman asks me. We're walking towards a place with shops/restaurants and entertainment. We pick up one of our group, also a woman, she was staying in a place with a storefront with the large word SNAKES written on it. I smirk to myself what she was probably doing with the snakes. Ahead is the entertainment area, and I notice some midgets there who are probably providing a show.

      + I'm with a guitar, I'm trying to turn it over (it's back is facing me) but its strings are caught on something. Especially the string with the thin line of red coloring running through it. I successfully unsnag it and get it turned over so the strings are facing upwards. I'm now planning on playing what I know of Clapton's "Tears in Heaven," and perhaps the few bars I know of "More Than Words." It will really impress them, I think. I think I need to broaden my repertoire of pieces so that I can put on a pleasing performance without repeating myself too much.

    11. 2020-08-19 blue coastal elephants, ski corner

      by , 08-19-2021 at 09:45 AM
      bedtime ~23:00-23:30

      wake 06:00

      + I'm standing on the ocean coast in a fairly large city, it's built up with walkways, water on my left. A large single-file procession of blue Indian elephants is emerging from the water and heading up on to land. I think they've sum a very far way, only to arrive for a live of slavery. I'm climbing up over green metal railings to move higher up away from the water. At the top there is a mailbox which I open, and it's full of letters and colorful postcards from well-wishes and people offering advice.

      + Standing on a snow hill, at a corner where very skilled skiiers (racing?) are "parallel sliding" down a very narrow and steep portion of hill (only about one ski-length wide), then zooming around the corner and proceeding down the hill. I'm looking closely at how they are holding their feet. It's just just a simple parallel "hockey-style" slide, they actually have one foot out of their boot and that ski is upside down, and they have a complicated stance with the free foot on top of the skis and their legs really held tightly together. I imagine it's quite a trick to get their feet out at the hill and put them back later. One of the skiiers is (I think, doesn't really look like him) my late Scoutmaster NB (with a beard).

      I move higher up the hill and enter a sort of gift shop where the floor is covered in ice and people are skating (?). I notice a lot of little trinkets spread around (on foldable music stands?). Someone is with me and they are saying something like "this is what you get with local delivery"

      Standing on the ski hill in the snow, at the bottom of a run, moving up the hill, I'm thinking about the inflatable, 2-man canoe-style sleds that are racing, and that a winning team (mine?) had the strategy of just not breaking at all until they were close to the bottom. I'm saying "so, they probably had to start breaking about a kilometer from the bottom?" I'm imagining they're breaking with their hands and feet.

    12. 2021-08-18 fragments, but variety, some detail, and another morning back to sleep victory

      by , 08-18-2021 at 08:16 AM
      Another (3rd day in a row?) morning back to sleep victory. It really helps having made a decision that getting in another sleep cycle is important and something I'm dedicated to doing.

      + very early (2-3am) morning appointment at the US citizenship application office, paper forms like airline boarding passes are spewing out of a machine and confusing me as to which one is the current form, I see paperwork with the hand-written name of my late wive's maiden name which confuses me

      + Scene of late wife in freaky mime face paint on an out-on-the-town trip with others that I never knew about, then I'm amongst them walking and threaten one of them with a switch-blade

      + party in a huge crowd, they're all standing in response to some ritual that I'm unaware of

      + walk by a gym (I used to attend?) with a group working out to an aerobic routine [visible through glass wall, dreamsign], I scrutinize the instructor to see if it's someone I recognize

      + [fragment] walking by a large vehicle parked that turns out to be a patrol boat?

    13. 2020-08-17 uptick in recall, a lot of short scenes, some vivid detail

      by , 08-17-2021 at 07:02 AM
      Uptick in recall with a bit more sleep, finally. Fragmented still, but a lot more content with more details recalled

      (earlier)
      + large open dining area, we're at reserved tables, a new incoming group heads towards a large table in the corner, I think this might be our table, too

      + starting to climb up a tall stairwell, there's a guy there who's gathered a lot of large, empty, plastic, orange watering cans at the bottom, I decide to help him out by hauling a bunch of them up with me

      + walking through an orchestra (rehearsal?) strings section, they're all playing synchronized pizzicato

      + (underground parking area with rooms?)

      (later)

      + in old adult PTL home living room, see (young son?) outside throwing a rock at a passing car, see the rock bounce off the passenger front window, think about the possibility of throwing more rocks through the space between parked cars, (I'm naked?) late wife and kids appear on the lawn outside (party?), I move to close the curtains (again) for privacy

      + [vivid] in home in quiet area of foreign country [England?] with woman owner, I say "it's such a quiet area here," I'm wandering through the rooms looking closely at decoration and things on wall, like pictures, think I have a lot in common with the owner, I see pictures of orchestral string instruments, I think I'm a musician, too, now she's a man, who specializes in "pronouns," [selection of them?] I try reading one of his worksheets, hand-written in pencil on white paper, despite seeing words on paper I can't make sense of them or of where th pronoun selection comes into it.

      + walking outdoors (naked?) towards a large multi-story building (heading home?), see a woman in the distance walking a parallel path, get up to tall building/barrier, look up and see the various levels including an open terrace roof where I think people spend a lot of time, imagine heading up to the 2nd/3rd level on the elevator and think the people there will be surprised to see us. The buildings here are all tall.

      + avoiding young, very well-dressed [fancy suits] security, who are guarding stairwells and elevators in a building complex, I'm bringing a large cup [movie-sized] of popcorn [all food is forbidden here] in with me, and turning to shield view of it with my body as I walk among them and rush for the stairs

      + [something about white vs. dark meat on chicken, it's actually colored red]

    14. 2021-08-16 fragments

      Very late bed-time, after midnight, this always results in low recall, no exception today, just a few fragments

      + walking along a side walk, lots of people around. There are spots to the right (away from the street) where people are lying and (sunbathing?). It's like a resort. It's a narrow strip (colored dark green?) where only two people can lie abreast. I'm thinking about how the people will pack themselves into this area, and whether they'll all fit? There's a man with me and we're discussing / thinking about the cooking of the ground meat (visible in a large frying pan in front of us), he's asking me my opinion on whether we'd rather do the selection and cooking of the meat ourselves, and I agree that we should. He tells the (waiter? cook?) this, who seems hesitant about it but agrees.

      [I think there was a lot more but it slipped away]

      + [just before waking], scene in a large public building location (library?) with tables, there's a guy (politician?) speaking about something, some political question with consequences, advising some course of action.

    15. 2020-08-15 Guest performer in middle-school band

      by , 08-15-2021 at 05:57 AM
      + I arrive at band practice in a middle-school band. I hear their players who play my instrument, and they're not very good, poor tone. I'm confident that I'll really surprise them with my playing ability. But I'm missing the part on which I blow. They present me with several new variants. They're odd-sized (too large) I notice. Other people's versions of these are usually not ready to play i know. I try them though, and find them very responsive, and say they'll do.

      I'm playing some melancholy, minor-key tune to accompany a portion of the dream.

      They say I'm going to need to play "the first movement of the Mozart." This is not an issue for me, I know it well. I imagine the tune in my head.
