    subway speech

    Good morning, everybody.

    Dream #1

    I was lost in "New York City." I was in some part of town full of vacant lots and stout, warehouse-like buildings. It was late afternoon, kind of dim and grey-blue. There were a decent amount of people around.

    I wandered in some general direction, maybe following a group of people who seemed to know where they were going. But I think I was beginning to question whether I was even in New York at all.

    Eventually I rounded some corner and found a subway stop. The sign of the subway station said something like "Riche St." I knew this stop. It was near Wall St., and it was on the line that ran near my apartment in Brooklyn. (IWL, there is no "Riche St." stop, as far as I know.)

    I went down the stairs and into the subway station. The station was completely hollowed out. There were a bunch of mothers and children (probably mostly Latina) in the empty space. Something about the whole environment felt tan or brown, like there was brownish concrete for the floors and walls.

    The environment also felt somewhat like a community meeting space, or some kind of preschool place. This may just been because of the mothers and children all gathered together. But it may also have felt a little like an almost revolutionary meeting, kind of like the Communist meeting in Vittorio de Sica's The Bicycle Thief.

    A woman started speaking. A loose, random crowd of women and children had gathered around her. Some of the people may possibly have been sitting on the floor. I sat on the floor near the back of the crowd.

    I had a good view of the woman, even sitting on the floor. I think the woman was Asian, kind of round-faced, with pale skin and shortish hair. The woman may actually have been giving a speech about anime. But the speech was intended to give the women and children a sense of empowerment, as well.

      Your recall is very impressive.

      Thank you, Superchaz. I think of my dream memory as a zip-file kind of process. If I let one or two points stay anchored in my memory, the rest kind of re-expands around the points.

      It's the way I remember things IWL, too -- like conversations I have with people or things I read. Anchor onto the key points and let the rest re-expand.

      Unfortunately, both IWL and IDL, I'm pretty sure my memory is far from 100% accurate. So I don't know it the zip-file memory method is always the best...

      Plus, I don't even know how zip-files work. So I'm probably totally off base.

      I use the same thing. Before keeping a DJ i used to write down keywords from my dreams.
