    1. Neptune

      by , 11-28-2016 at 10:39 PM (Journeys through Spacetime)
      I am in an orchestra I play in.
      BREAK


      I run outside onto my back lawn and people say 'Look!'
      I look upwards at the night sky and see Neptune and a bright blue star.
      I realise I am dreaming. People say 'Why lucid dream when this is here?'
      I sight Mars and terraform it.

      It looks like Earth.
      BREAK

      Then I was in an intergalactic conference about how humans on different planets had evolved so much they were different species. Should breeding be allowed?

      The result was me waking up.

    2. Notions of the Past

      by , 11-17-2016 at 07:06 AM
      I find myself at a performance of some sort; possibly a graduation. I'm among many of my old peers from Westmont, most of them being members of the orchestra I was a part of for the year I attended the college. I see my old conductor, and I seem to remember having a desire to approach him, but i cannot remember whether or not I did. I enter a rehearsal space, and in the dream, it conveyed itself to me as the place we rehearsed every Tuesday and Thursday. But upon my awakening from the dream, I realize that it was not the chapel in which we regularly rehearsed. In fact, I think it was a place altogether new to me, but somehow similar to my high school band rehearsal room. But this new room presented me with a sickly image of a rainy night outside of my old home, and I think some of my dream took place in this situation, but I cannot remember. This dream occurred the night after my ex-girlfriend decided to text me for the first time since we broke up. She reached out first, having read the letter I had written her about two weeks prior. Many mixed emotions swirled about my brain that evening, and I attempt to find some meaningful connection between the occurrence and my unusual dream. Of course, I had previously had dreams about Westmont. And it makes sense. I spent a year there, made friends and memories, and then left. And my thoughts often drift to questions of whether or not I should have stayed there, or if I even should've attended it in the first place. Perhaps if I had continued my education there, I may never have met my summer lover, and would be free from my love-lorn afflictions and anguish. Maybe i would've found someone else; someone who made me truly happy, and who deeply loved me. But I do not like dreaming about such things, as they are notions of the past, and are unchangeable and unattainable. I long for happier dreams. Dreams of freedom, success, bliss

    3. TOTM Fail TOTD Fail TOTY Fail

      by , 11-16-2016 at 09:50 PM (Journeys through Spacetime)
      I was in a choir, singing in an auditorium. It is soon over. I am now in an orchestra I play in. I can't find my music. Suddenly I see that my desk partner is on both sides of me! I do a reality check, and I am dreaming.

      I announce that I am attempting the Lucid Task of the Day which is, figure out 1% of 5. It shows this on a plaque. I fail. I fly out. and arrive in my house. I try to find Candyland (TOTM) half-fearing I might instead find a girl called Candi. Nothing appears. I give up and try and remember the TOTY.
      I remember it as : Be a unicorn and destroy a Snellkork (I remember it as a sort of intelligent mountain troll). I give up. I then have a talk to T about life.

    4. 2/1/16

      by , 02-03-2016 at 02:41 AM (My Dream Journal)
      I am looking pictures of bettas online. I find a picture that looks like mine but then realize that it doesn't look like my at all.
      I am knocking on peoples doors and find myself in somebody's house. Dear basement is Rusty, concrete, and full of water. I walked into it to grab my Eos and ice breakers.
      I go into a hot tub with a man in it. Another man(husband?) comes up behind me and gets angry at me.
      I am in orchestra class. My orchestra teacher s giving out thank you notes to people who gave him Christmas presents. He doesn't give one to me which makes me mad. Then I start making jokes, and a girl I absolutely DETEST starts giving credit to another girl for them. That makes me even madder.
    5. Two dreams alternate and then mesh together

      It's difficult for me to tell if in this dream I went to a location and then returned to said location, or if I had a (complex) false memory while in the dream of a dream I never had.

      Ahem.

      One part of the dream would cut to the other fairly often, I think.

      One dream-plot is that my brother E, my father, my mother, E's wife M, and I were on a road trip. Maybe is would be more fitting to call it an odyssey, as it was winter and snowy and we just kept having to stop to make the road or help people or whatever. We were in a minivan.

      I remember at some point in this story-arc we were outside on the road, effectively at our destination... or one of them. We were all placing equally spaced boards in the snow next to the road.
      Don't ask me why. I just thought it was funny when M put one in the snow and it stood upright.


      The other dream-plot is that I was re-visiting a great concert hall. Here's where the difficulty occurs: I don't know if I'd actually been there previously in a dream or in this dream or ever, yet I remembered being there before and talking to the director of an orchestra that was to practice there soon. Somehow that memory included a mock-train onstage and (I remember very clearly) the orchestra playing music from Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6.
      But I was there again. For some reason.

      When I left, (and I know this was in the dream, not a possibly false memory) it was in a small crowd of college-aged people, mostly guys. I chatted a bit with one on the way out, and when I got back outside I got in the van (that's where the two story arc come together). As soon as I got in, though, the thought was that at least some of the guys coming out of the performance hall were to come with us in the van. (Which now only had my mom and myself.)
      Some of the guys got in the middle seats and then I helped another guy (a really pleasant person) get in back, where I was.
      I mentioned to mom about the odd music playing in the context of it being a memory. (more confusion about that upon waking.)
    6. concert at school

      by , 05-16-2012 at 02:49 PM
      i am in orchestra at my school,
      i am in the orchestra room going over the music one last time before the concert. people rush around me in different directions as i make my way to my friend Saul. we begin to talk just before the orchestra teacher gets everyone's attention and says "you two talk too much" while pointing to Saul and I. he works out the seating arrangement on a seat of paper and then points to my new spot. i think to myself "I am to far away from the other Violas and i am now only one person away from Saul anyway. the teacher signals us to go out onto the stage and as i do i slip and fall. i slide across the floor nearly slideing off the stage. i get back up to meet Saul and another person standing in front of me and i say "i came soooo close to going off the stage."
      at this point i slowly drift out of the dream and open my eyes.

    8. Rich family piano visit, rap album with G

      by , 08-03-2010 at 01:18 PM
      PART 1 - RICH FAMILY PIANO VISIT

      I'm visiting some rich, "upper class" family. I don't know how I know them.

      There is a mother - 50s, slim, narrow face, short brown cropped hair, well mannered but stern, a cold personality... and a daughter, who looks like someone I very vaguely know IRL.

      The house seems to be based on two locations from my past, one from my childhood and one my father's current home. Kind of both at once, as dreams often seem to weirdly do.

      I practice on their piano (in the kitchen area from my childhood house)... meanwhile in the next room, the mother is teaching the daughter piano (living room, right across - where there used to actually be a piano IRL).

      At one point I crawl into the room toward the corner opposite from them (there is no other furniture other than the piano), where there is a picture of the daughter leaning against the wall on the floor. I "fix" the tilt of the picture. As I do, I'm more or less staring at the daughter. She pretends not to notice.

      As I'm crawling back out, I realize that I was staring and that it must have seemed creepy, and think to myself that I should completely ignore the daughter for a while to compensate.

      After a while the mother comes in and asks how I'm doing. I pick up on the subtext that it's time for me to go, and say that I was actually just about to head out.

      As I'm leaving I notice I'm wearing a bulky green-ish jacket I've borrowed from them. I hesitate, wondering if they'll ask for it back, but suppose they let me keep it for now as it's raining outside.

      I think the original reason I borrowed it had something to do with what took place before I arrived, some sense of danger, but can't remember. I remember something about playing in an orchestra...

      On my way out (now based on my father's current home), where there is usually a closet by the front door, I notice it's a door into an entire room that is in fact a giant checkers board, with giant checkers pieces to play with and everything.

      ANALYSIS

      Piano is one of several arts I've been considering to spend my time on while not working on my meditation project, so I'm sure that association is primed in my mind.

      Crawling into the room... this could certainly symbolize submitting to their "higher status."

      Fixing the tilt of the picture... this could mean trying to improve her self image, perhaps repair damage done by the harsh mother figure.

      The checkers room... this could refer to decadence, extravagance, this rich family having a whole room just for checkers.

      -----

      PART 2 - RAP ALBUM G

      I'm talking to my IRL friend G about releasing a rap album. I say that I'm not super motivated to release one at this point, otherwise I would be "working my contacts," that it's "just a hobby right now."

      ANALYSIS

      Perhaps trying to qualify myself, essentially trying to prove, "I could if I wanted to."
