    Fragment of Dreams

    1. Night of Monday 10/23/23

      by , 10-24-2023 at 07:41 PM (Dreamlog)
      Went to bed at 11:00PM.

      Fragment
      There is a beach on a starry night. Galaxies are visible in the vast darkness of space.
      The beach itself reminds me of GP's bachelor party from a few years back.
      Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong are battling each other on the beach.


      Woke up at 6:45AM.

    2. Night of Saturday 10/7/23

      by , 10-08-2023 at 10:57 PM (Dreamlog)
      Went to bed around 1AM.

      Fragment
      I'm in a movie theater. Reminds me of IMAX. There is a group of people with me.

      Quest for Buried Treasure
      I'm on a quest. It feels like a video-game.
      There is a 2d sidescroller-styled 3d environment. Similar to Sonic Colors (which I've been watching gameplay of recently).
      It is a beach-like place, with beaches on the left and right sides, and ocean beyond. Sunny, of course.
      The land proceeds forward and I'm searching for buried treasure.
      I'm leading a group, and I've found the treasure before so they trust me to find it again.
      We find other treasures along the way, including equipable pink gear.

      Recorded on waking around 12PM.
    3. Night of Monday 9/25/23

      by , 09-27-2023 at 06:39 AM (Dreamlog)
      Went to bed around 11:00PM.
      All recorded at around 4:45AM. I lost a lot because life was busy today and had to wait until the evening to write this.
      Plus, my nightstand notes were not very detailed and I underestimated how dark my room would be in the early morning.


      Fragment
      I'm at home sitting on the couch with my girlfriend S.
      My neck is killing me. She comes over and reveals a red neck pillow she has made for me.
      It feels godly when she puts it behind my head.

      Fragment
      I'm playing a 2D video game that resembles something from the SNES era.
      Point of view is from overhead, like The Legend of Zelda.
      There is a plot-line that involves time-travel, and when the player traverses eras, the 'future' has a blue-purple styling compared to the standard green-grass look in the present time.


      Fragment
      Something about World of Warcraft.
      I might be playing a new expansion.
      My friend Z is there.

      Fragment
      Something about my Grandma P and Uncle J.

    4. Night of Saturday 9/9/23 (Comp Night 9)

      by , 09-10-2023 at 07:18 PM (Dreamlog)
      Pre-WBTB

      Fragment
      I can faintly remember something Dragonball Z related.

      WBTB
      I'm very tired but force myself out of bed. I spend the 10 minutes similar to how I did last night: going over my plans, and reviewing the advice friends on DV gave me regarding teleporting and visualization.
      I lay down and spend a long while trying to get to sleep. It's possible that 10 minutes WBTB wake-time is too long for me (twice in a row now I've struggled to sleep). More data will tell on that.

      Post-WBTB

      False Awakening and Fade
      I wake up in my bed and remember to do a nose-plug RC, and I can breathe. It takes a couple seconds to realize but...
      I'm dreaming!
      I get out of bed and make my way to the hallway, thinking about how best to start stabilizing.
      I rub my hands together, and also my barefeet on the ground.
      But, unfortunately, before I know it, the dream has faded.
      I don't recall recovering from this.


      Tree Arena Fragment
      I vaguely remember a big circular arena.
      It may have been inside a large tree trunk. Maybe non-lucid me made it to the EFF after all

      I can also recall some pirate ships circling the area. The main combat section was raised and the lower section was filled with water.

    5. Night of Friday 9/8/23 (Comp Night 8) Lucid!

      by , 09-09-2023 at 04:55 PM (Dreamlog)
      Pre-WBTB

      Fragment
      Frieza from Dragonball Z is at a Home Depot store.
      Recorded at 5AM, at the beginning of sleep cycle 5.

      WBTB

      During my 10 minutes of wake-time, I planned what I would do if I had a false awakening at my home. After taking the 8mg Galantamine and using the bathroom, I walked down the hall doing my series of reality checks. Then I rubbed my hands together. I also decided I should interact with the environment in some way, so I licked the wall. Yep. Gotta commit man. I wander around the house a bit, and decided I should find ways to teleport to the forest (step one of "The Plan"). I decide that I will summon an image of a forest on the living room TV and then step through it. Path forward established and my 10 minutes spent, I was content to lay down in bed. I tossed around for awhile and thought about just about every current life problem I have. Maybe I was too awake. After what felt like forever, I finally drifted off. No WILD though unfortunately.

      Post-WBTB

      Seeking The Elusive Fantasy Forest™
      I'm waking up in my bed, and I immediately think to check for a false awakening.
      I can breathe through my plugged nose.

      I'm dreaming!
      I decided to cycle through some more RCs just in case.
      I look at my hands, and I have far more than five fingers on each hand. Yep. Dream.
      I tried to see my nose on the left and right sides and I can. So according to that check I am awake.
      To be fair I've never done that RC before so I didn't really know what to expect.
      I default back to another nose-plug RC and I can still breathe. Definitely dreaming.
      I recalled my plan from the WBTB prep, so I rubbed my hands and licked the wall. Yep.
      It tasted like the real wall. Like paint.
      I then find myself back in bed. Another false awakening.
      I repeat the RCs, but this time my vision isn't quite coming to me.
      I try to will my eyes to work. Nope.
      I say "Heal my eyes!" It works a little bit. I say "HEAL MY EYES TIMES 1000!" It works a bit more.
      This goes on for some time, and I'm getting annoyed.
      I recall another technique where I "take off glasses I didn't know I was wearing".
      I do this and clarity improves a lot.
      Eventually my vision stabilizes to the point where I can focus on other things. Like my goals.
      I can recall "The Plan" in it's entirety. Step one is to teleport to the fantasy forest.
      I wander over to my living room, which now resembles a mixture of my actual living room and my friend M's.
      My girlfriend S is there on the couch. I decide to play it cool and not tell her this is a dream.
      Instead I say "Oh hello! How are you? I'm going into the TV now!"
      I don't recall actually going through the TV, so I may have wandered away.
      ...
      I find myself lucid in the garage later. I'm looking around for the Elusive Fantasy Forest™.
      I look down, and hope that when I look up, the forest will be on the other side of the open garage door.
      Nope.
      Vivid green grass and neighborhood. At least that is consistent. It looks similar to how it did in my previous lucids.
      I checked around the garage some more, looking for a door or something else I can use to teleport.
      I find a storage cabinet and try to teleport Narnia-style, but no luck.
      I lose my focus for a bit, and I end up walking out of the garage door and preparing to fly.
      I kick off the ground hard and take flight. I specifically notice that my right leg doesn't hurt as I jump (In waking life I am recovering from surgery so jumping is normally out of the question).
      I zoom around and enjoy the view. The grass looks even more vivid from up here. It takes on a pastel-like painting aesthetic.
      As I take in the view I come to a realization.
      There is nothing other than vivid green grass and dots of homes that look like legos from this high up, for as far as my eyes can see.
      Maybe the reason I can't find my forest is because this entire goddamn dream-plane is a neighborhood.
      I zoom around some more, and find myself using air-swimming to control finer turns. Haven't tried that before.
      Also unusual, I land without losing lucidity. I remember that I still need to try this stupid teleporting thing.
      I'm back at my garage now and I remember reading a tutorial somewhere on DV about "scrolling the world".
      So I raised my hand as if I was about to swipe the world like an image in my phone pictures gallery, not really expecting this to work.
      Except, against dream-rules, it does work despite my negative expectation. The entire world, my current view of it anyway, swipes to the left, and a new image slides in from the right, teleporting me somewhere new.
      But of course, not the elusive Fantasy Forest™.
      I see a big, vivid, blue ocean in front of me. The waves are almost caramel-like. They move too slowly. In other words, their viscosity is higher than it should be. They crash down lazily.
      My family may have been there too, I can recall my Dad being present for sure.
      I briefly consider exploring the bottom of the ocean because who knows what my brain would put there!
      But I ignore the ocean and my family: I am on a mission dammit!
      I turn to walk away from the ocean and I notice it is raining behind me, and there is a forest in the distance.
      But then a car drives by in front of it. IT ISN'T A FANTASY FOREST! IT'S A REGULAR PRESENT DAY FOREST!
      I start to think about other ways to reach the forest. In particular, I imagined it might be easier to seek out a campfire and go from there.
      But despite my best efforts, before I reach the Elusive Fantasy Forest™ I find myself waking up, thinking I should try to record before I lose memory of this dream.
      I wake.

      Recorded at 7:45AM.

    6. Night of Sunday 9/3/23 (Comp Night 3)

      by , 09-04-2023 at 06:16 PM (Dreamlog)
      Fragment
      On the Going Merry from One Piece.
      The fat pirate lady from episode one is there.
      She's talking about a glitch.


      After waking up, I attempted a WBTB. I woke up naturally prior to my planned 6 hours at around 5 hours. I took my regular supplements and tried to go back to sleep but I was too awake. My sleep cycle is shot right now, so this result isn't too surprising. I'll try again soon.

    7. Night of Saturday 9/2/23 (Comp Night 2)

      by , 09-03-2023 at 09:00 PM (Dreamlog)
      The REM rebound is real

      The Stylin' Spider Boss
      I'm in a Zelda boss arena that reminds me of the Wizzrobe battle in Stone Tower Temple from Majora's Mask.
      The boss is a large spider-like creature, and the solution is to shoot it in the eye.
      It drops arrows periodically, in case the player runs out.
      Later I'm in another Zelda boss arena. This time it is like Stallord's from Twilight Princess, but with a forest theme.
      The boss is a spider-like creature, with long spindly legs. It might be the same one from before.
      My girlfriend S has painted the legs purple and put converse shoes on the legs.
      Zoro from One Piece is resting against the locked boss door, watching the battle.
      He's saying something to Usopp, also from One Piece.


      Fragment
      It's night-time on a modern-military boat.
      Jiraiya from Naruto is leaning over the railing on the front of the deck.
      Some conversation has just happened, had to do with passing responsibility on to the next generation.


      Basement Fort
      I'm in a large basement, fully completed. A young boy is using it as his room.
      It reminds me of Grandma P's current basement.
      The boy has built a fort out of blankets, sheets, and chairs. He reminds me of S's cousin J.
      There is a set of locks in the sheets, where the keys would open the door. There are 5 or 6 of them.
      My sister's boyfriend N and my Dad are there.
      They are hanging out on a large sitting area, with half-circles of leather couches facing a TV.
      This section of the basement looks like the one from the home I grew up in.
      My brother A has just returned from travel. He is carrying a lot of luggage and seems overbeared.
      But he is handling it.

      Fun commentary here...my brother has a young boy due any day now. I don't really believe in premonition, but maybe this dream is saying that he will be OK?

      Fragment
      I'm at a wedding ceremony. Anju and Kafe from Majora's Mask are getting married.
      They are thanking me for helping them with jobs around town that got them to this point.
      There is another person at the wedding who is trying to have me arrested for meddling.


      The Arcade on Top of the Hill
      I'm in a big hilly place. There is an arcade-hotel at the top of a large hill.
      I'm now at the arcade. Lots of lights and sounds.
      I run into Arin Hanson from Game Grumps.
      I tell him I'm a big fan and he decides to hang out with me.
      We walk around the arcade a bit and then leave through a back-door.
      We're outside, back in the hilly area. There is a concrete floor, with a hole and a ladder leading down.
      He says we have to go down there.
      I tell him I can't because of my knee.
      The hole shrinks, such that a person could just barely fit.
      I try to squeeze through, but I can't.
      I think that maybe using some oil would work.
      I remember there is a train I need to catch.

      I really am recovering from knee surgery, so I was aware enough to reflect that here.

      Fragment
      I can recall a fleeting image of a sky palace area, where paradoxically, the hole from the previous dream would lead.

    8. Night of Monday 6/27/23

      by , 06-27-2023 at 01:51 PM (Dreamlog)
      Working the Earth
      I'm on a grassy hillside area, tilling some dirt. It's a sunny Summer day.
      The tilling tool is small. Like a kid's sand rake. I am on my knees near the ground.
      I work at a monastery of some kind.
      I'm with a girl that I like, but it is a forbidden romance-type situation. Will-they-won't-they scenario.
      We are working together on the soil.
      The temple is down the way, to the left of our viewpoint.
      We're talking about our friend (waking life BP).
      There is some project involving computers that we are part of with him.
      DJ is also involved.


      Fragment
      I'm up extra early for work today.
      I reflect how nice it is to experience some cool morning air in the normally oppressively Summer heat.

    9. Night of Wednesday 6/14/23 (Comp Night 14)

      by , 06-15-2023 at 07:18 PM (Dreamlog)
      I didn't get the WILD or dream control I was hoping for, but there is a lot of recall here...so that's a plus!

      Before WBTB

      Sci-Fi Feeding Time
      It's dark, night-time at a stable on a farm.
      There are horse-like creatures and other monsters in sci-fi fleshy body bags.
      Some of the horse-creatures are sitting on their backsides...and have huge upright dongs.
      Like straight up into the air, 3ft diameter and 5ft high...
      Someone is showing me how they care for the creatures.
      They have one mature creature chew up food and spit it out.
      Then they collect the mush and feed it to the younger ones.

      The whole situation is very strange and I kinda wish I would've forgotten this one.

      Fireshots and Frogskins
      I'm in a team at Hogwarts and we are in the middle of magic combat with another group.
      They are Slytherins or otherwise dark magic users.
      It isn't a friendly duel, they are trying to hurt us.
      I shoot some fire attacks at one of them and set their robes on fire.
      I remark that the spell was meant for aesthetic uses, but very useful here.
      I shoot off some stupefies and experlliarmises, and notice that I have multiples wands and they break as I'm shooting.
      They sort of snap like twigs.
      It feels similar to how durability works in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
      Later I'm in a downstairs living space or maybe a lab.
      Mr. Weasley is there. He has a big frog creature. About 1ft tall.
      I'm wanting the frog's shed-skin shell from him.
      There is also information I'm needing. There was another person I was planning to bribe with the skin-shell.
      But I realize that Mr. Weasley has the same info.
      The room looks like my childhood kitchen now, with Mr. Weasley standing near the sink.
      I ask him for the info, and indicate my understanding that I don't need to bribe him.
      He pauses, gives me a look, sarcastically pauses...maybe a bribe IS needed...
      But then gives me the info.

      Cave Battle
      JM from work and I are planning a dangerous trip to get treasure.
      Later we arrive at the site.
      I'm in an underground cave with a large rock blocking the entrance above.
      Similar to a bombable wall from Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
      There is a horde of orcs/goblin creatures above the wall chasing me. JM is above as well.
      I'm searching the cave for the treasure. The monsters are getting closer to opening the rock.
      I start to look for a weapon instead. I find a bow, but the arrows with it are dull.
      They break through. I try to hide.
      3 goblins make their way to the back cave chamber where I am at.
      They chase me around the room and shoot arrows at me, I try to grab fallen arrows to fight back desperately.
      J!!! HELP!!! I scream.
      He shows up and helps me fight.


      After WBTB
      I head back to bed and focus on the forest I want to WILD into. I wait a long time, and multiple alarms go off interrupting my attempt. I eventually slip off to sleep without a WILD.

      False Awakenings
      I'm in my bedroom, thinking that I've wasted my time for the last day of comp.
      Crap. I do a half-hearted nose reality-check just to be sure...

      And I'm dreaming! But it fades quickly into another false awakening.
      This happens a few times, but I never get real control of the dreams.
      Only counting it as one dream because it all was sort of a blur.

      Hey, You, You're Finally Awake
      I have metal chains binding my arms together and I'm riding a cart through some valley.
      I'm a prisoner, similar to the opening of Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.
      My right eye is bound shut somehow and I can't find a way to move my body to free it.
      I think about how maybe I'm sleeping with my eye covered...

      I must be dreaming!
      Despite being lucid, I can't do anything to free my eye.

      When I woke up, I confirm that my right eye was, in fact, lodged into my pillow. Go figure.

      Carpet Shower
      I'm at my Grandma P's old house (the one with the big upstairs area and Jack/Jill bathroom).
      My dad owns it now. He's talking to his friend about how great blowjobs are. I mean, I can't argue with the man.
      There is a stuffed animal on a chair alone in one of the rooms. I don't see the significance of it, if any.
      I'm searching for a shower and I find one in the middle of one of the big bedrooms over the carpeting.
      It doesn't strike me as strange that a faucet is right in the middle of the bedroom wall.
      I start to shower up, but my Dad interrupts me and I have to leave the room.


      Unexpected Assist
      I'm in an apartment similar to H and A's from a few years back.
      We're down some stairs. H is giving me a strange look and I feel like she is into me.
      Her and my girlfriend S are aware of my WBTB and WILD attempts, and are trying to help.
      They set up a bed for me with a stuffed animal to help me sleep.


      Panther Dinner Time
      I'm in a fancy restaurant sitting outside. It reminds me of where we sat and got ice cream in Disneyland/California Adventure.
      There is a large panther approaching the seating area.
      It's aggressive and the crowd freaks out.
      Then a man appears from out of the crowd and seems to know the panther.
      He commands it, and manages to get it to jump onto a nearby brick wall and hang there.
      The situation is resolved.


      Conditions
      Medium workout
      Light dinner
      Bed on time
      6hr/30m WBTB
      Yuschak Primary Trigger (8Mg Galantamine, 250Mg Choline Bitartrate)

      Notes
      So I still didn't get the result I was hoping for. There were some alarms my girlfriend had go off during the attempt, but I'm not sure I can 100% blame those for the failure. I think that given the challenge of falling asleep once again, 30m might be too long of a wake period. Intent was 20m, but by the time I had taken the supplements, recorded my dreams, used the bathroom, and reviewed my goals 30m had passed. I'm undecided if I want to test 6hr/30m WBTB one more time, or move on and try 6hr/20m in earnest.

      by , 06-14-2023 at 06:59 PM (Dreamlog)
      Day-time (Nap)

      Lucid in the Manor
      I'm outside a manor looking place. Its rainy. I go around the side and find the front door. I open it and it has a Mario Sunshine style doorway to jump into a level. I jump in.
      I'm in my living room, but it is wider and has a tall ceiling.
      Much bigger than normal. I put my hand out in front of me and starting counting fingers out of habit. Six fingers per hand.

      Thats not rightIm dreaming!
      I do a nose RC several times to verify.
      I keep my hands out in front of me to look at as a sort of lucid anchor.
      I walk down the hall, but my dream starts to fade before I can save it.


      Night-time Sleep

      The Secret 10th Dungeon
      I'm playing Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. I'm walking on the surface and I get the "new location" HUD text for a new dungeon.
      It tells me that it is the Secret 10th Dungeon.
      I can see that there is air rising out of nowhere so I jump and activate the paraglider.
      It takes me all the way into the Sky with floating structures all around.
      I land on a larger structure and the HUD confirms again that this is the secret dungeon.
      I'm very excited about this and start to explore.


      The Dragon Roost Cup
      I see Toon Link (Windwaker Legend of Zelda Style) fly by on some vehicle.
      I understand that this is for a Zelda-themed Mario Kart game.
      Characters are all riding Sky vehicles.
      On the HUD, there is a Dragon Roost Cup title, and others, similar to how Mushroom/Flower/Star cups work in Mario Kart.

      Not going to say this counts for Dragon Theme, since it was just a title and reference. Not an actual dragon.
      I wouldn't be mad if I'm wrong on this though...

      Airship Dining
      I'm out for dinner with family. We're walking down the street together looking for a restaurant.
      It's a rainy night and my Dad is there with my brother and I.
      We are talking about diet, but still decide on pizza.
      We come across one, where there is an airship tied down. The restaurant logo is 1800s-ish looking gentleman with tophat.
      The quirk of the restaurant is that the airship lands at scheduled times and becomes available for seating, alongside standard ground-seating.
      There is a rope mechanic where patrons help secure the airship.

      Learning Indian
      I'm with an Indian family at a restaurant.
      It looks like Snakes and Lattes and we are in the corner we sat in for I's bachelor party some months back.
      But the table is oriented slightly differently.
      The dad is teaching my girlfriend and I how to speak Indian. He shows me a few words that sound like throat noises.
      He tells us that the meaning depends a lot on the pitch and speed of the sound.
      I tell him there is a word in my language like that, referring to fuck. The family knows what I mean, and busts out laughing.

      Grandma at the County Fair
      I'm at a country fair. My grandma is excited to be involved and she is running and jumping and dancing more than someone her age should be.
      Sometime later we are watching a video of her at the event at her home later in a closet or tight hallway.

      There is some kind of infiltration operation happening. Me and another person are approaching an abandoned looking home. Feels very dangerous.

      Pre-WBTB (Targeting End of Sleep Cycle 4)

      Hermione's Date
      Hermione Granger has a date with an ugly guy. She has her Yule Ball dress on, the scene matches from the movie.
      I'm familiar with the ugly guy since I had heard about him online.
      They are having a light argument about something, but I can't hear them.
      Later I'm in a Taco Ball parking lot near my regular gym. I'm checking "Hermione at Yule Ball" off of a checklist app on my phone.


      The End of the World
      I'm in my gym's parking lot standing near a desk setup outside. I'm working on some type of model generation software.
      I can roughly draw with my hands in mid-air, and a smoothed-out shape snaps into view in 3D in front of me.
      I'm working on a dress for a female model.
      The female model is off-kilter with a projected x-y-z coordinate axis.
      I'm trying to move the dress on the model so it snaps into place, but the image is translated off some value.
      There is somebody else next to me. Might have been a coworker from WL.
      A female AI-person approaches me.
      She's visibly spooked, and needs to tell me something.
      She doesn't trust the other person, so she goes to write it down.
      Her handwriting is bad but I can read it.
      She's telling me about the end of the world.
      About how the world starts and ends in cycles with a calamity.
      And it is about to happen again.


      Hand-Eye Coordination
      B from work is telling me a story about how he entered the military at a young age.
      He says he ended up here in engineering because he had bad hand-eye coordination.
      He gestures to a ledge high above that isn't normally there and tells me that he once accidently hit it with a machine gun.
      He's talking to a group of older cohorts who remember those older days.
      B makes a joke to a 3D animation modeling person that the ledge should probably have been addressed by this many years.
      I tell B that my hand-eye coordination is very good, but I am still here anyway.


      Post-WBTB (Targeting End of Sleep Cycle 5)

      High School Well-Being
      I'm back in highschool, but I'm with Max from Stranger Things and H from a band-group I formed a few years back.
      I brush by Max with my backpack and accidently hurt her nose. I apologize profusely for hurting her.
      She reacts by giving us a lecture about how H and I are too concerned for her well-being and she can handle herself.
      I see some other people that look like jocks. I think about how they will probably go into marketing or sales someday.

      Before WBTB

      Russian Ride
      I'm traveling internationally and I don't speak the language where I am at. I'm getting off a train or bus looking for the airport. I see another bus leaving and I wave my arms and chase it, yelling for it to stop. It does. I try to ask the driver where the airport is and he tells me (in English) that the bus is full. It clearly isn't. I wonder if there is some law saying there must be X number of open seats. Regardless, I stay on the bus and he doesn't kick me off. I make my way to the back of the bus. It resembles the CATA bus system from back home. In the back car is a girl with one leg. Short hair, kinda "bad-girl type". She has khaki pants on, and the missing leg has it tied to cover the stump. I sit next to her and ask for help. She's friendly.

      Some time later we are back at her apartment. It's a big studio, kinda messy with paint and art all over the place. I realize that I'm a girl, and that she may be gay. I get the impression she might have been coming onto me.

      Later I'm running from Russian agents. I'm running through an apartment complex, entering and leaving through doors/windows. I'm really high up. When I go outside I'm sidling on just-big-enough edges to not fall. I don't know why they are chasing me. I eventually make my way down from the tall complex and make it to the ground but I haven't shook them.

      I'm in a down-town Chinatown type area at night. There is a big crowd of people and I'm trying to use them to escape from the Russian agents. I'm at a bar with two floors open to the outside. There are some TVs running with couches set in front of them. There are some dark corners I can hide in. I try out a few and crouch down, but I decide that none of them are good enough and keep moving. Then I stand up face-to-face with one of the agents. He looks like Dr. Brenner from Stranger Things.

      Running again. This time it was short. I ended up in a stone building on a grassy hill, hiding underground. But they've just found me. There is the leader (Dr. Brenner) and two thug-types. They are going to torture me for information. I tell them I've only killed one time, and I wasn't sure if it was me or my uncle who pulled them trigger. I guess I was trying to intimidate them. It doesn't work. They casually talk to me about something and then without warning Dr. Brenner shoots my right ear off with a pistol.

      I cry out in pain (S hears me and tries to shake me awake). It doesn't hurt as much as I expected it would. They tell me that they will shoot off the other ear if I don't comply.


      I wake up and tell S I am OK.

      After WBTB


      W Aged Up
      I'm at my Grandma P's house in the bedroom sleeping on the bed. I've slept in later than everybody else. I roll over and see some old drawings I made in my childhood on the wall. My grandma will have decided to have kept them. They are hyper realistic and drawn in pencil. Somehow, they are holographic. I think to myself that maybe I should get back into art.

      W, my brother's son who is due in September, bursts into the room with his friend, Ian. He's four years old. I can't tell who is who and I feel bad about it. But now I know it is because W isn't born yet. One of them has buck teeth. I follow them around the house and then one kid is missing. I find W/Ian eating dish cleaning tablets under sink. Standard kid behavior I guess


      Lucid Fragment
      I'm in a large mall, reminiscent of one from an old marching band trip from high school. I do a nose reality check and realize I'm dreaming. I double take...crap! I was dreaming that whole time before with W! I think to myself that step one is to find my DG...but my lucidity slips and I wander off.

      Conditions
      Medium workout early in day
      Big dinner
      2 drinks of alcohol
      Stayed up late
      6hr/30m WBTB
      Yuschak Primary Trigger (8Mg Galantamine, 250Mg Choline Bitartrate)

      Notes
      My theory on what happened here...sleep cycle issues. Instead of jumping into the same sleep cycle I was just in, I jumped into the beginning of a later one. I stayed up until about 2:30am playing Zelda and then set an alarm for 8:30am...so about 6 hours after sleep. I know that 5h45m has been a good target for me, so I was experimenting with a larger time to test and see if it can be improved. One problem though is that I didn't have an established wake-sleep rhythm. Plus, I stayed up longer than the typical 15m during the WBTB. I planned slightly longer at 20m but it was more like 30m. I don't think the alcohol will have mattered much because of the later timing, but it could have played a part. Lesson learned: Next time, have an established sleep rhythm. Gonna say data inconclusive about 6h/20m WBTB setup.

      Big Dog Station
      I'm in an airport waiting area. I'm on international travel but I don't know where to. There are some big dogs in the area. I think that S would be happy to see them. One is a big poodle-looking black dog. I also see a big long-haired german shepherd looking one. I'm talking to my brother on the phone, and he is responsible for my bag being missing. I'm upset with him because he made the decision to leave it behind so that I could make my flight. I tell him that there are things I need in the bag, like my $300 headphones and work ID.

      Fragment
      I have vague recollection of a smokey-train station as well. Most likely connected to the above dream about travel.

      I recall something about my Dad being in danger. There was a horror movie style song being sung by a little girl about what was going to happen to him. I can't recall what, but the dream was unsettling.
