    Fragment of Dreams

    1. 8-13-14 Swimming

      by , 08-13-2014 at 11:35 PM
      This is from this morning, after a natural awakening at 4 AM:

      I'm going on a field trip with a bunch of kids from school. I'm very unaware of what's going on until we get to our destination: a massive, half-indoor, half-outdoor pool. The only way to get into the pool is a giant metal slide. My boyfriend is with me until we get to the slide, and then he seems to vanish. I don't notice until I'm in the water. My awareness spikes at this point, and I think gleefully, It's great to be swimming in a deep pool again! (I haven't been to a pool in years.) I am particularly delighted at not being able to touch the bottom of the pool. I spin around and notice a ladder to get out. I also notice my boyfriend's disappearance. I decide to go look for him, and I swim towards the ladder. A wave of newcomers sliding down the slide blocks my way suddenly. As they move away, I swim forward again, only to find that I can't move. It feels as if my kicking and paddling is accomplishing nothing, and I give up for a moment, confused.

      Pretty sure I woke up at this point.

      Dream fragment #1:
      I am walking around the side of my house with my friend D. There is a flash of bright light and the scene changes abruptly; where the side of my house should be, I now see many white, delicate flowers, illuminated brightly from behind by golden sunlight. The flowers hang from the branches of a little tree. The sight of them stops me, and I sense my friend turn to complain about why I'm not following her. I feel overwhelmed by the beauty of what I'm seeing, and I ignore her.

      Dream fragment #2:
      (3rd person view) D and I are in a giant, deep pool. We are swimming along the side of the pool, which resembles a dock. (Switches to 1st person) I spot a little island of concrete out in the middle of the pool. It's pretty far, but I want to get out of the water, so I start for it, but D grabs my arm, and points to a ladder that she had been heading towards. For a moment I see the pool from a 3rd person view again, this time with a ladder. Then the scene seems to fast forward, and I'm climbing up the ladder behind D.

      Dream fragment #3 (from 6-22-14) - this was a very vague fragment, and I had very little awareness:
      Against a black background a see a table, surrounded by five or six horses. I only really see their heads and necks. One of them stretched it's neck out, pointing its nose to the center of the table. One or two others copy the first. I think vaguely of gambling. The scene starts to change before my eyes, to something greenish. (This last dream makes me laugh... The way the horses moved was like that kid game Hungry Hippos.)

    3. 6/5/14

      This is a dream fragment from this morning. Been a while since I dreamt of the beach.

      I am standing on a sand dune overlooking the ocean. My dad is beside me. The dune is maybe 5 feet high, and it's damp. The sky is dark and cloudy, as if it's been raining or is going to. I decide to go down the dune to stand on the beach. I look down at my feet as I go. I'm barefoot, and it's high tide; the water is right there at the bottom of the dune. It's clear and cool, and a few inches deep. I wade around for a little while, and then I climb back up the dune - not noticing that my footprints from before are gone - and I rejoin my dad.
