      I see you're franchising. How about TwoShadow's Topless Dream Journal? It could be the Hooters of the DJ world!

      But I'm just kidding of course. A good move considering the size of your original DJ.
      Oh gosh...I wonder how many dreams I have actually had that I was topless in.....

      But, yeah, I felt the need to do this--break my journal into smaller bite sized pieces.

      The other one I thought I might enjoy seeing is how many Flying dreams I have had. That would be a really big Sub Journal, I think.

      Wow...I just did another Task of the Month</SPAN>. And how appropriate, considering it is Valentine's Day.

      I had gotten to sleep in, and I had been awake for a bit, but decided that today would be a good chance to do a WBTB. I wanted to get the Task done, and I thought that since it was Valentine's Day I might have extra inspiration to get the Task completed.

      The dream started with me looking over a balcony of an apartment in which I supposedly lived. There were lots of people below in the yard or road or whatever was below the balcony. I remember thinking that something was not quite right with this. And I suddenly realized that I was dreaming.

      I looked back down.
      I had to find someone to ask to be my Valentine. I saw some teenage boys from the neighborhood. At first I was reluctant, but then said to myself, "It doesn't matter--this is my dream--no one will know that I asked them to be my Valentine in a dream."

      So I glided down the the ground level. And went up to M and asked him to be my Valentine. He looked at me like he thought I might be playing some sort of trick on him. He squinted his eyes a little and said, "Are you serious?"

      Then my dream faded.

      But I ended up back in the apartment and was still lucid. This time I recognized it as my friend E's apartment (of course it was not his either in real life). His family was there along with some family friends. They had been making cookies with sprinkles, but were now cleaning up.

      I wanted to try the Task again, to see if I could get a better answer.

      I asked E's sister. She said, "Sure, why not."

      Then I asked a blond girl, "Will you be my Valentine?"

      She said, "Yeah, because I owe you." I looked at her somewhat confused.

      She said, "The meeting tonight......I'll be getting you your pin and uniform."

      At first I felt slightly alarmed, then thought "There is no meeting. This is just my dream. How funny that my brain would come up with that."

      Then I asked another girl that was about 15. (There were only girls in the room--no guys.)

      She said that she couldn't be my Valentine because she was already a sister.

      I asked her why she couldn't be both. And then she went on about not being able to drive herself anywhere and how she was a burden on others because of that. It didn't actually make a lot of sence. But I let her go on.

      Then a guy in his late 20's walked in with a little girl about two years old on his shoulders. I walked up to him to ask, but at the last minute I asked the little girl instead. She couldn't talk so I didn't expect an answer. But I just talked to her like you do to a toddler. "Hi...you are just so cute...hey, do you want to be my Valentine? That would be fun, huh? And, see, you are wearing hearts on your dress. You are already all dressed up for Valentine's Day."

      At that point I figued I'd asked enough people...an interesting variety...and had gotten an interesting variety of answers.

      I thought, "What else can I ask them?" I thought back to the Task in November where we were supposed to ask people of we were dreaming. I decided to do that again.

      So I started with the blond girl whose meeting I was supposed to attend that night. I asked her if I was dreaming and she nodded and said yes.

      I went down the line and everyone was saying yes. Finally the last girl I got to I asked, "But how do you know I am dreaming?" I really wanted to know what she would say.

      She said, " Because this all sounds like it is being recorded in a studio." (I was not expecting that answer). And the funny thing is as she said that sentence, her voice started sounding all echo-y and unnatural.


      Then the dream faded again.

      BUt I ended up back in the apartmant again. This time it was empty. I looked at the table that still had lots of sprinkles left on it fron the cookies they were making.

      I suddenly had an idea inspired by my mom.


      In real life my mom and I started eating a raw vegan diet about 6 weeks ago. A few weeks ago she told me about a dream she had where she was eating pork, and then became lucid (her first lucid dream--and it was just from listening to me talk about it). She then thought, "Well, since this is just a dream, I might as well finish eating this pork" Since it was tasting so good.... .

      So looked around the apartment. I saw some cookie dough and put it in my mouth. It didn't taste as good as I had wished. I remembered that in real life I had been craving peanutbutter cookies with chocolate chips.

      I opened the fridge. And sure enough, on a plate all made up nice and with plastic wrap over it was a large batch of that kind of cookie. I took one and ate it and was incredibly thankful that my dream taste buds were fully working in this dream.

      I started to take another, then paused, momentarily feeling guilty for taking the cookies that E's mom had put away. It was obvious that they were supposed to be a gift for someone.

      I then had to remind myself that this was still my dream--that's why I was getting to eat these in the first place. That no one with ever miss these cookies.

      So I spent the next five minutes (or so it seemed) just eating one cookie after another

      I can't believe it--I had another long WILD</SPAN>. I started the 61 point thing. Somewhere I have a gap in my conscious. I do remember I thought I was transistioning into my LD.

      I remember hearing people talking (Teresa and someone else) and I remember seeing the dream world, but I was still aware of the talking (Which wasn't actually there , but I thought that meant I was still half awake.)

      I also was aware of my body. I am not sure if this was real either. But I seemd to feel my physical body laying in bed while I was trying to go into the dream world.

      Eventually, I felt like I was completely into the dream world. I am not sure whether to count this as a WILD or not.

      I remember flying for a while down some narrow streets. (fuzzy here)

      I then remember being indoors, and I saw my grandma who in real life is not alive any more. I wanted to ask her if she would predict my future. But something seemed wrong about asking her that, for some reason. So instead I decided to ask her how she was doing....how life was in the Spirit World. She was purposefully being vague. She would answer with little "Hmm's..." and "mmm's...." like she wanted me to answer my own questions. I did realize that I would have done that anyway if she had answered.

      At one point I reached out and touched my grandma's arm. It felt soft and wrinkled like an elderly person's arm would.

      The next thing I remember doing is looking for a mirror. I remembered CB's experience with the mirror and wanted to try that too.

      I walked into a hallway and there was a mirror at the end of the hall. I walked to it and looked at myself. I looked pretty much the same. My eye makeup was slightly smeared under my eyes, but otherwise I looked normal. Then I tried to make myself change. And sure enough my face started twisting and changing before my eyes. I got myself looking quite deformed and ugly. I smiled and noticed that I had several black teeth.

      I then looked at my hands. My fingernails were very short and dirty, but otherwise my hands looked like normal hands.

      I floated down some stairs and decided to do push-ups at the bottom. They were completely effortless. I was wishing I could do them this easlily in real life.


      I then went outside. I was between houses on a little walkway. Along the walkway were stones. I decided it would be fun to look under the rocks to see what bugs I would find in my dream. Would there be any? Would they look like real bugs or would my mind create something completely unnatural?

      So I lifted one of the rocks. Under it were several of the spiders with white bodies and red legs. They looked very normal.

      Under the next rock were a bunch a small black beetles. Under the third were pill bugs. I thought that there were more there than probably would be normally.

      Then on the edge of the rock that I was still lifting up, I saw some black legs around one of the sides. I dropped the rock, and out into a web scurried a medium sized black widow. I thought, "There's my black widow....they always seem to show up".


      Then I went to a playground. I saw some kids playing on a tall rocket shaped climber. I flew over to a little boy that looked about 7 and asked him if he knew how I could fly. He laughed and said, "I don't know."

      I landed on the ground and saw a new kid walk into the playground area. I went up to him. He looked more like a nine year old. I told him, "I'll bet you can pick me up." He looked like he didn't believe me. I decided to have more fun. I picked up a little girl that looked about four and then had him pick both of us up. He could do it because I had made us both float. That was kind of fun.


      Then I was flying again trying to gain speed. I saw two jets go by and decided to try to follow them. I kept up for a short time, then lost them.

      I then tried to fly high. But every time I got to a certain height, the scenery below would start to white out. It was like my mind couldn't create all the detail for that much earth below me. I felt a little frustrated. I tried several times, but the same thing happened.


      Sometime in here I had a false awakning. I woke up in an apartment that I believed was mine. My first thought was, "I need to write down my LD before it fades. " So I pulled out an envelope and wrote all the parts I could remember on the envelope.

      Then I walked outside. All the area below the apartment had flooded. Thank goodness I was on the second floor. But then I saw some of my friends. They had an apartment on the bottom floor. They told me that their place was flooded. I felt bad for them. I then noticed that Tami had lost a lot of weight and looked really great.

      Then I woke up for real.

      My deram had lasted a full hour.

      Another lucid dream</SPAN>....

      I am seeing a bit of a pattern here. Again I was awakened. I was awake between 1:30 and 4:00. As I went back to sleep I tried to WILD. I don't remember transitioning. But I remember being lucid and in a dream.

      I was flying. I remembered that I really wanted to fly over Lake Powell again. I looked down and saw that I was flying over the desert, and in front of me I saw the dam and Lake. I wanted to fly under the bridge and over the dam and across the lake.

      I was flying swimming style, but going faster than I have been lately. I could feel the wind and coolness of the air as I flew below the bridge and over the dam...and across the Lake.

      Then somehow I was in a hallway in a high school. I saw many people walking by. I randomly chose one of the guys. I wanted him to be the one to ask my future. He ended up being fairly good looking. I pulled him aside and talked to him like I was making friends.

      And at this point I think I lost lucidity because I ended up deciding to hang out with him and be his friend. I forgot to ask him the question.

      I can't remember how the dream ended.

      When I finally woke up, I decided not to fully wake myself up to write the dream down. I am going to have to travel in a few minutes and I didn't want to risk not going back to sleep again for the night. I had already missed a few hours by being awake.



      Edit:

      I just remembered that at one point while I was still lucid I went outdoors and thought about making a tornado appear. I remember it being a difficult decision---I wasn't sure I wanted to give up my very cute heart badge...lol. I noticed many strange looking clouds in the sky. I looked around for a tornado. I didn't see one already there, so I'm thinking I didn't pursue it any further.<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

      A WILD within a dream....</SPAN>

      I was on a football field for some non-sports event. I was talking to a black girl who in the dream was my friend. I was suddenly feeling kind of tired. I told her, "Hey--this would be a great time to WILD."

      So I stood there and relaxed and focused-- and felt myself leave my body. As I started to float I remember thinking, "Hey, I did it-- I'm dreaming! I have never done it like this before."

      I started flying. I was no longer in the football field, but by some red cliffs. I started flying up the cliffs staying very low, almost skimming the cliffs.

      I remember realizing that I was still very aware of my "real" body still standing in the field. Although I was flying I still very aware of my arms hanging by my sides in what I thought was real-life.

      Because of this I reached out with my dream hands and ran my hands up and down my arms that were stretched out in front of me as I flew. That helped me feel more part of the Lucid Dream. I flew up the mountian and then I started worrying abut my body left in the field so I flew back down and back into my body.


      I "awoke" back in the field and was then excited to tell my freind what had happened.<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

      Before I went to sleep I took some B6 and laid in bed imagining how I would complete the Lucid Task this month. I decided to skip straight to the snake one. I thought the hard part would be to find the island. So I decided that since I would probably be flying, that I would make myself fly over a cloud , then when I was past the cloud I would look down and see that I was flying over the ocean, and I would then see the island.

      Once on the islnd I would see these bushes with snakes hiding behind them. I would then use my wonderful mind power and pick up the snakes with my mind (like I did with the rocks in a past LD) and fling them into the ocean until I had cleared the whole island of the snakes.


      Dream 1:

      I was flying. I suddenly realized that since I was flying it couldn't possibly be real life--that I must be in a dream. I immediately remembered what I was supposed to try to do. I looked around for a cloud and saw one ahead of me. I flew over it for a short time then looked down . Below I saw that I was flying over the ocean. I flew lower and tried to find an island. I did see an island. As I flew closer I focused my mind on creating bushes and snakes so that I would be able to drive the snakes away.

      But on the way to the island something terrible happened.
      I woke up.


      But this goes to show that I just need to focus more on LDing right before bed, and I will have more success. Not that this will happen everytime I try. BUt I think the extra focus always increases the chances. I will try this again.<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

      Thanks oneironut, CoLd BlooDed , and Ranma, --and guess what??-- It all paid off last night!


      I just did the Advanced Lucid Task!</SPAN>


      It started off in an elementary school. I went outdoors with another teacher and a group of kids to get something. We went out across the street and I noticed a big storm coming in. It hit us with a sudden fury. I thought that that was very unusual. I looked up at the clouds and noticed that I could see a funnel cloud starting to form.

      Again that hit me as strange since we don't normally get tornados where I live. Then I thought, "Could this be a dream." It actually took a few seconds before I was totally convinced. I dicided to try to fly. I almost was doubting that I could becuase this dream felt very real-life. But I jumped a couple of times and then took off into the sky.

      I immediately remembered what I was supposed to be doing. I flew into some clouds, and when I flew out I could see the ocean ahead. I flew out over the ocean and came to the closest thing to an island. It was a long string of rocks and boulders sticking up out of the ocean. I looked around. I really wanted to have CoLd BlooDed, Ranma, and Oneironaut show up and help me with this since we had been talking about it. But I could see no people.

      The boulders were covered with an abundance of animal life. I was in a hurry to get started because when I had the dream last night I woke up before I even got a chance to land on the island.

      I swooped down and grabbed the closest animal--a sea turtle--and flung it as far as I could into the ocean. Then I moved on and grabbed some otters and also flung them out into the ocean. I moved along as quickly as I could flinging all manner of sea animals back out into the ocean.

      Then I suddenly stopped and thought, "Wait, something is not right here. Snakes....I need to be getting rid of the snakes, not otters and marine iguanas.

      I looked around again and saw a couple of cobras in the rocks. I grabbed them by their tails and swung them out into the ocean."

      I flew along the rocks until I was sure that there were no more. And I was confident that I had rid this small chain of rocky islands from all snakes.

      I had totally forgotten in my haste that I had planned ahead of time to use my "mind powers" to get them off the island. But I seemed to get the job done regardless.


      Now my lucid dream goes on, but it gets a little weird.

      I transistioned and was suddenly flying around inside a very large church. I was flying over people's heads, but wasn't paying them any attention since I knew that they weren't real.

      I came to a very large reflective glass window. I looked at my reflection. I took note of what I was wearing. I had on a really strange outfit. I had on a whilte blouse and over that I had on a white tank top with a light grean camo tank top. I was also wearing a white, almost see through white skirt.

      I thought it was really the ugliest outfit I could possibly be wearing. I decided what I really wanted to be wearing was a pink bikini. I tried to make myself instantly be wearing the bikini. I couldn't do it. But I knew if I took off my other clothes, that I would have the bikini on underneith.

      I must have felt like I was in a big hurry in my dreams, because I didn't just take my clothes carefully off--I ripped them off. And sure enough, there was my cute pink bikini that I had wanted. I looked at my reflection and thought I looked good. I am embarrassed to write this but after looking at myself for a minute, I decided to take the bikini top off and see how I looked. I did, and looked at myself and thought that I looked the same as in real life.
      And I'm going to have to stop here....sorry......


      Note:

      I had awakened at three in the morning. I got up for about an hour, took 50 mg of B6, then went back to be and half-heartedly tried to WILD. I had the Task fully on my mind as I fell back to sleep. And it worked.

      Okay, I am up in the night because I just had a lucid dream. Its unusual to have an LD this early in the night. I probably had it between 12:00 and 1:00.

      And it was one of those dreams where as soon as I woke up, I thought, Oh crap, how am I going to remember all that I just did? And I think that I am still half asleep, becuase I don''t seem to be typing my best right now.

      So here is my attempt at putting it all back together again.

      Lucid Dream:</SPAN>

      I believe somewhere in the beginning of the dream I had been talking to other dream characeters about the goal to become lucid. We had talked about if we became lucid we would soar up to the clouds because the clouds were looking very beautiful.

      Then somewhere in here I realize that I am dreaming. I am briefly tempted to look for an Easter Bunny. But I am still pulled by the dream I was just having.

      I decided to go find my friend and take her with me soaring up to the clouds.

      It gets fuzzy here. I believe I found my friend and am soaring with her. Then I feel myself wake up. But instead I find myself still in the dream but on the ground. So I fly back up to the clouds with my friend again. I belive this pattern happens a few times.

      I am wondering how lucid I actually was by the end of this dream. I am going to say that I was lucid, but I wasn't really controling anything. I just really wanted to be flying though those clouds, so I went with the flow.

      By the end I had two friends with me. The sky had turned more into the ocean. There were still clouds, but there were also jelly fish floating all around us. Lots of them--in some places there were huge clusters of them. They weren't the stinging kind other wise we would have been in trouble because we had to keep pushing out way through the clusters.

      There were times in the dream wehre I was so surrounded by clouds that I almost started to feel claustraphobic. I had to have my friends hold my hands so we wouldn't get separated. Because there was no visibility. The clouds felt like I would imagine real clouds to feel--a little damp and "thick".

      Also at one point we cleared the top of the clouds and came out into the yellow moon light. I remember being just in awe of what I was seeing. It was so beautiful.





      It's not even 1:30 yet. I don't have to get up for almost five more hours, so I will try to focus on having another LD tonight. This time I will think Tree.<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

      It worked. I had to lay in bed for quite a while. I even thought I wasn't going to be able to go back to sleep. But I did.

      And I completed both Tasks!!</SPAN>

      It started in a dream where I was trying to get away from this guy . He was big and liked me and was really creeping me out. I had to get away from him, so I ran into an office, then into a furniture store (even hid under a couch for a while).

      Then I decided to come out. I realized it was very rude of me to run away. I need to confront him and tell him how I felt. And maybe he wouldn't be so bad after all.

      Then I saw my family waiting for me. My dad (who is dead) was there.

      Seeing my dad triggered lucidity. I went up to him. I thought "It's been so long".

      I reached out and took his hands and noticed the way his skin felt.

      I put my face to his and gave him a gentle kiss on the cheek. It felt so real. Just like it would have in real life. I almost forgot what I had wanted to be doing in a lucid dream. I just wanted to enjoy being with my dad.
      But then he said something to me about my mom. I looked over at my mom, then my sister. Then I remembered.

      "C, you have got to come with me to find a tree!" I ran out the building. She called after me, "Don't you want to take the car?"

      I said, "I don't have time--any tree will do. There's got to be one close-by."

      I ran out and saw that I was in a plant nursery. I looked around and saw no trees--just smaller plants.

      Then I looked on a top shelf and saw a small tree in a pot. I jumped on the shelves and started to climb. The customers didn't like what I was doing and started to complain. I ignored them. I made it to the top where the tree was only to find out it was more of a vine. It was quite small.

      Disappointed, I jumped back down and took off running.

      I was now in a park. I saw over to the far end what looked like a big tree. When I got to it, though, I saw that it was hollowed out into a kids' play place. I could hear kids laughing inside and the splashing of water. At first I thought I would still try to hug it. But I realized that it was dead. I didn't think I could merge with a dead tree.

      Finally in the very corner of the park I was a medium sized cottonwood. I ran to it. It's trunk wasn't very big (diameter of only 10 inches or so) but I grabbed ahold of it and started hugging. I hugged and hugged.

      Then I started asking myself what "merging with a tree" was supposed to feel like. Had I merged yet?

      I opened my eyes. I could see my shadow holding the tree. I figured as long as I could see my shadow separate from the tree I hadn't "merged". So I kept hugging, occasionally opening an eye to look at the shadow.

      Finally I started to feel dizzy. I could tell something was finally happening. I couldn't see anything recognizable, and I felt like I was hanging upside down.

      "I merged, " I told myself.


      Then I thought about the basic Task. I was still dreaming. I figured I might as well try that one as well. As soon as I thought that I was back out of the tree and back to just hugging it.

      I let go and looked around. There seemed to be some sort of Easter activity going on at the park. I guessed that they had had an Easter Egg hunt earlier. I saw a paper plate on the ground by a picnic table which had a picture of a pink Easter Bunny on it.

      I started running again. I tried to decide if I was looking for a real bunny, a cartoon bunny, or someone dressed up as an easter bunny. I decided that which ever one I found I would count it.

      I finally looked over and saw an Easter Bunny sitting in a chair. At first it looked like a person in a costume. But as I got close I could tell it was much too small for that.

      He had just finished talking to a child. When that child left, I said to him, "Hello, Easter Bunny."

      "Hello", he said back in a robotic sort of voice.

      I couldn't think of anything to say to him, so I politely said, "How are you doing, Easter Bunny?"

      "I'm doing fine, " he said back.


      Suddenly I got excited as I realized I had completed both Tasks and unfortunately that woke me up.

      Dream 5 (Lucid):</SPAN>

      I was walking with several people. I remember my sister and Jeff being there. We were walking toward the beach. It was late evening and the sun was setting. It was the most beautiful thing I ever remembering seeing. I suddenly became lucid.

      I started floating. I wanted to fly down to the water. But Jeff grabbed my foot and wouldn't let me go. I got mad and started kicking at his hand. I said, "Dang it--I'm lucid! Let me fly!"

      Finally he either let go , or I kicked myself loose and started trying to fly off. But then my sister started grabbing my leg. I said, "What's wrong with you people? I'm lucid. I need to go."

      She let go finally. But I was still having some trouble flying very high.

      I thought of all the things I could do in a lucid dream. But in this dream I decided I didn't want to be in a hurry. I would fly over the ocean (shore) and then I would decide what I wanted to do.

      Since I was having problems flying I kept trying to find things to kick off of (kind of like when you are swimming) to kind of propel me forward.

      I finally got out over the water, but I kept sinking lower, so I had to aim myself for this guy's boat. I was going to kick off of it to help me fly.

      But then I felt the dream fade.

      Another casualty of the forum change. The first half of this dream is gone. Now I know what Jess was complaining about when he said that half of his journal enties were gone. Some just didn't make it through. And I'm only just now noticing. Anyway, here is the end of this LD.


      4-20-07

      I thought, "I really need to believe that I can do this". That helped me get to the top of the 4 X 4 place.

      When I was at the top, I looked the several stories back down to where the girls were standing. I thought, "What would happen if I just let go, I can't get hurt. I want to see what will happen."

      So I let go and let myself fall. As I got down to the floor, I stopped at a float about 6 inches off the floor.

      "Cool" I thought.

      Then I decided to do flips in the air. I did a back flip. Then a front flip. I was going kind of slow, like I would if I were doing it underwater. But it was fun. And the girls were still looking at me in awe.

      Then my alarm woke me up.... <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

      Dream 8:

      I was standing by a car on a street in LA where my best childhood best friend lived. I could see kids all playing outin the street. I wondered in anyone would recognize me.

      Then they started running and one shouted at me "The bandits are coming! Hide in you car."

      I looked down the street which was no empty of children and saw these guys on motorcycles coming down. They had guns and were shooting into the houses. I knew my car wasn't the safest, but I knew if I ran toward I house at this point would justmake me an easy target.

      So I got in the car and ducked down low.

      I suddenly realized that my car was moving down the street. They guys on motorcycles were following me.

      We got a a big intersection and were about to turn. I distintly remember thinking, "I can just watch this as a movie. I don't have to participate."

      That thought made me LUCID.

      I realized that I didn't have to stay in the car and be chased by the guys with guns. I could make them all go away.

      I wanted out of the car. I remembered a recent thread on DV about how LDs could be dangeous if you do things that could kill you. So I decided I didn't want to just open the door and jump out--I might be starting a bad habit.

      But before I could figure out a solution, the car door opened on its own, so I flew out. I flew up to the top of a building. I landed and thought for a second about what I wanted to do as my Task for this dream. I thought about the coming Task for May. I debated for a moment on whether I should try it or not. I knew it was too early to get credit for it. I looked around. I saw a planter in the median that was planted with palm trees. I took a good look at that first palm tree. Should I...should I....?

      But before I could do anything more, I woke up.



      Dream 9:

      I was sad to have awakened so quickly from the LD I had just barely started so I willed myself back to the dream. The next thing I knew I was back at that intersection and very lucid. It was now dusk. I looked back down at the palm tree and decided not to do that Task. I decided instead that I wanted to make a Star Wars Character appear. I decided I would be happy with either Luke or Anakin. I hoped that they would have their light sabers with them.

      But I woke up again before anyone showed up.

      I had a bunch of short dreams last night. I went to bed with that feeling that I was going to lucid dream. i don't know why, but I can almost sense them coming.


      Dream 1 (mini lucid):

      I don't remember becoming lucid. I just remember being lucid. I was standing in the kitchen with my dad. My dad was looking down at something on the counter. He had a kind and knowing little smile on his face, and he was humming this tune.

      I remember thinking that there was something very significant to the tune. I told myself that it was very important to remember this tune.


      All I remember at this point is it was G A B (quarter note, quarter note, half note) repeated three times. After that it went on to something more complex that I no longer remember.

      I believe this dream was inspired by Oneironaught's dream yesterday and my comments to him.

      Dream 4 (very mini lucid):

      I was in the gym with Barb. She got a black notebook out and started to show me something.

      BLAM...I was suddenly lucid. I knew the gym hadn't looked right. BUt before I could actually do anything I woke up.

      Mini Lucid:</SPAN>

      I was walking at night with a group of people (no one I know from real life). We came to a place where I looked to our left, and I was the full moon shining down on this snow covered mountain range. It was so absolutely fantastically beautiful. I just stopped and looked at it for a few moments.

      I then realized that I had my camera with me. I didn't know if my camera would be able to capture the beauty of this. But I wanted to try. I took a picture and saw that it seemed to take okay. I then wanted to take more pictures, but the people from my group were now all in the way. They were spread out all over in front of me and there was no way I could get a picture without them in it. I knew I had to wait. I noticed another lady with a much nicer camera was taking pictures of it too. I wished I had a nicer camera.

      Finally, they had all moved out of the way. I lifted my camera to take a picture, but I was surprised to find that there was now a big hill in the way covering up most of the snow covered mountains. Where had that hill come from? I knew it wasn't there before when I took my first picture.

      I stood there for a moment trying to understand this, when it suddenly hit me--I'm Dreaming!

      I remember feeling proud of myself for figuring that out. And not just accepting that the hill was suddenly there.

      I decided to fly over the hill so I could get a better view of the mountain. In fact, I wanted to fly to the mountains. The moonlight was still shining so magically on them. I just had to be there.

      So I took off flying toward the full moon over the mountains.

      But not long into the flight toward the moonlit mountains, I could feel my dream fading.

      I had a lucid dream last night!

      I actually woke up this morning about an hour and a half before I had to get up. I thought back and was frustrated when I couldn’t remember a single dream. I wasn’t feeling very tired, but I made myself go back to sleep so I could squeeze out just one dream. I usually can do that, even if it is just a short dream—and that’s all I wanted—just something that I could write down in my dream journal. It didn’t even matter to me at that time if it were lucid or not.


      I did go back to sleep. And I did dream. I even had a lucid dream. The problem was that it was a very long complex dream. When I woke up, I thought, “Oh my gosh…how am I going to be able to figure that all out.

      So I started by writing down all the things I remembered doing in the dream, lucid or not. Then I tried to sort them into the “before I became lucid”, “while I was lucid” and “after I was lucid” parts.

      Then—I sorted through each section and put it together the way I best remembered and the way it seemed to make the most sense. And I actually think I did a pretty accurate job considering how mixed up I felt when I first awakened.

      So after all that, here is the dream:


      Dream:


      It started non-lucid. I was following Jeff. He was walking toward the back of a building and was about to go in a side door. I remember passing a large sand castle that was by the door. I had no idea where Jeff was going, but I felt I needed to go too.

      We went into the building. I believe we were separated at this point. I remember sitting in what looked like a waiting area. I remember this boy (about 12 years old) showing me some of his drawings. I then was watching something on a TV screen.

      I’m not sure of the transition here. It may be that I was watching something on TV and then I was suddenly there. But next thing I remember was standing next to a large ferris wheel. People were climbing on it. There were ladder-like things to get to the seats.

      Suddenly the ferris wheel starts spinning. I start seeing people falling off of it to the concrete below. I felt horrified. I thought that surely it was killing them. I didn’t want to be seeing this.

      So—I decided in my mind that the people wouldn’t die. One by one, they picked themselves up off the ground and brushed themselves off and walked away. I felt much better.

      Then I remember I was climbing the ladders on the ferris wheel. I was thinking, "If I were dreaming I could climb this with just my hands." --(that is something I have always liked to do in dreams—use my upper body strength and pull myself up things without using my legs). So I start climbing the ladder with just my arms. I remember it actually felt good. I could feel my muscles working but it had the satisfation of a good stretch.

      Then it hits me—finally—that I actually am dreaming. Then I thought, “Of course I am—duh—it takes me long enough to figure this out.”

      So I did the first thing that came to mind. I started to fly. For some reason I didn’t think about doing the Tasks at all. Instead I thought about how I really wanted to make this dream into a complex story line. I wanted to make it my story. But I decided it might be easier to start with something like Star Wars. I have always wanted to have a Star Wars LD anyway.

      So as I flew I decided that I needed to be in space. And without any effort I was suddenly soaring though the stars. It was so beautiful and incredible.

      I thought about how I had always wanted to do that, and I had never been able to do it before. I had read about others doing it and wondered how they managed to do it because it seemed to be a difficult thing to do. And I was so amazed how this just happened naturally for me in this dream.

      I also thought about how everything was just too quiet. I wanted to hear a soundtrack. But I wasn’t able to get music going.

      I noticed as I flew though the stars, that the stars seemed to be more concentrated above me. It started looking more to me like a flat ceiling. But I decided not to let that bother me too much. This was my first time creating a flight through space, and it was pretty darn good.

      I realized that my next goal was to find a space ship. I really wanted to find Darth Vader and confront him. I looked below me and I now saw a white medium sized space craft. It was a dirty white with yellow and black trim. I knew Darth Vader was on that ship.

      I flew to it. I knew that it I flew into it fast enough that I would fly right through the sides and end up inside. And it did.

      Unfortunately (and this kills me), this is the part of the dream I remember the least. Something happened on that ship, but I have no memory what it was. But I do remember the dream suddenly fading.

      I was suddenly back in a house. There was a hallway with a mirror at the end in front of me. I knew I was still in the dream. I also knew that if I ran straight at the mirror, that it would transport me back to space.

      So I ran toward the mirror and was again back in space. I saw the same ship in front of me. I flew right at it. But instead of slipping back inside, I hit the outside. This time it was too solid for me to get it. I was very disappointed. Again the dream faded.

      I was back in the hallway with the mirror. I ran at the mirror again. But this time, instead of going through it I bumped right into it. The mirror was very real feeling. I touched it, and the glass felt smooth and cool.

      I decided that I would just run in to the wall. So I tried again. But I hit the wall. I thought, “No…no….now I am doubting and it’s not working. I have to believe. I have to believe…..”

      So I took a dive and tried to go through the floor. But again my head just hit the carpet. Everything felt so real and so solid. Disappointed, I stood up. I made myself float and started doing back flips and the air. It felt really good to do those.

      Suddenly I heard Jeff’s voice talking to me. I closed my eyes and then thought, “oh no, closing eyes in a lucid dream makes you wake up!”

      I open them. Jeff was standing next to me. We were back in that original building. I had fallen asleep in the chair in the waiting room.

      I said, “Jeff, you just woke me up from a lucid dream.” When I saw that he looked sorry, I added, “But I guess you had no way of knowing. It’s okay.”

      He said, “If it helps, I brought you some ice cream.” He handed me a square container that had some cookies and cream flavored ice cream in it. It was fairly melted.

      I took a few bites and was amazed at how good that tasted to me. Then I thought, “Isn’t there a reason that I’m not supposed to be eating this?” I didn’t want there to be any reasons, so I kept eating it.

      Then I thought, “It’s the sugar. I’m not supposed to be eating sugar. And that’s right—I’m Raw Vegan now! I’m really not supposed to be eating this. How could I have forgotten?”

      It then comes to me—I’m still in the dream! I never did wake up. I looked back in the bowl. All that is left is the melted ice cream at the bottom that is completely runny. I put a corner of the bowl to my mouth and drink the rest of the ice cream. I thought, “This is great. I ate all this ice cream and I didn’t mess anything up!”

      At that point I woke up for real.<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

      Dream 2:

      I was driving with my family somewhere on a long drive. We started going through a town that had an amusement park. At first as I looked at it I believed that it was old and abandoned. But as I looked closer I saw that some of the rides were going.


      Then I realized that the road was suddenly part of the roller coaster. I thought that was pretty cool. But then I questioned it and wondered how big trucks could go on this road if it was also a roller coaster. It started seeming strange to me. I even thought that this was the kind of thing that happened in my dreams. But for some reason –even after thinking that I didn’t become instantly lucid.

      My notes say: “Stood backwards”. I actually have no idea what I meant.

      I don’t remember all that happened here. But I think this part of the dream went on for a while here on the road/roller coaster.

      I do know that somewhere in here I became partially lucid. I remember thinking that this was a dream and was trying to float. But there seemed to be no picture at that point. I was just existing in this grey void. So nothing really happened and I must have lost lucidity ......

      Yes--I had a Lucid Dream!!


      It started in my neighbor's backyard. I was talking to my friend N who supposedly lived there. We were discussing the problems we had with our yards. As we stood there in her yard, I could see right through the chain link fence to see my whole yard. Both of our yards were very large. They were all sandy dirt and had junk laying around.

      I commented on how messy our yards looked. I said, "Look at how my yard slopes. It's hard to have a yard look neat when it isn't level. You're lucky yours is level."

      But as I looked at her yard, it was only level where we were standing, all the rest was uneven with ditches and hills.

      Then I looked at the green plants growing. I pointed it out to N. I said, "You see all that green stuff that looks like grass? Well, it's not. Those are baby tumble weeds. They are going to grow up to be huge and ugly, and when you try to pull them up, you'll get all scratched up with their stickers.

      She then said she wasn't sure what plants I was talking about.

      I said, "You can see them better if you fly over them." And at that point I started to hover in a horizontal position a few few off the ground and started flying over the little tumble weeds. "See..?" I said.

      She looked at me and smiled and said, "C----, you just like to show off."

      BLAM!

      I was dreaming. Of course, because I was flying. Funny that I had a bit of a delayed reaction in figuring that out.

      The first thing that comes to my mind is to complete the Advanced Task. I needed to find a tree.

      I looked over into my yard and saw two poplar trrees. Unfortunately they looked dead. I didn't think I could make a dead tree walk around. So I kept looking. In the far end of the yard I saw another poplar.

      I stared at it really intensly and willed it to pull up its roots. I could see it start to come up. I could see its roots emerge from the dirt. I then willed it to walk. It started forward.

      As I wached it move, I realized that something wasn't quite right. I looked closer at the tree's roots. Under the roots I could see little wheels. The tree wasn't really using its roots to walk, but intead used little wheels that it hid under it's roots.

      I thought to myself, "Will I get credit for this? Maybe I should try again."

      So I looked over at another poplar tree. I stared at it until it too came up out of the ground. But this tree, instead of trying to fool me with its roots, just had wheels....and it wheeled itself away.

      I started feeling like I had to hurry. I started pulling up tree after tree at this point only to find that all my trees had wheels and no roots at all.

      To make matters worse, all the background in the dream suddenly went out on me. Everything but myself and about 8 wheeled trees was a flat light blue. I felt like we were in a computer--like the Matrix-- and someone had messed with the background color.

      Then it messed up again. I was now trapped in a dark blue room. I had to get out. I ran at the wall with the intent of slipping right through. But I hit the wall.

      After several times of being unsuccessful, I decided to try something different. I thought if I closed my eyes, then I wouldn't be fooled by a wall that wasn't even physical to begin with.

      So with my eyes closed I ran at the wall. I ran further than I thought I needed to go and started to feel like I had made it, then blam. I hit it with the top of my head.

      I tried two more times with my eyes closed.

      But after no success. I decided to just do flips--like I often do in LDs.

      As I did the flips I felt so good. I remember thinking, "This feels so good, why am I bothering to do anything else at all in my LDs. I shoudl just do flips the whole time."

      SO I stayed in the room completely content for the next few minutes just enjoying the sensation of dream flips.

      Until I finally woke up.<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

      Okay....here is my little sketch of what my wheeled trees looked like.



      The one on the left is the first tree that hid its wheels. The one on the right represents all the rest that came up without caring that I saw their wheels.
      I suppose that should really say "Tree not afraid to show its wheels".....

      [Note: This is not supposed to be a work of art.]

      I got to have a good nap today. And I ended up having a nice mini-lucid.

      I don't remember how it started but i was at the top of a very tall building and I started thinking something like, "If I were dreaming I would jump". And then it hit me that I was atually dreaming. So I let myself fall. At first I was thinking how I didn't feel any wind on my face as I fell, then as I thought that and became conscious of it, I did start feeling the wind on my face and the wonderful sensation of falling and knowing that it was okay.
      I must have lost lucidity at that point because that is all I remember of that dream.

      I just had a mini lucid. I had slept in some and was going to get up, but I felt disappointed that I really didn't remember any dreams, so I decided to try one more tiem to try to squeeze out a dream or amybe even a lucid.


      Dream:

      I was looking at a house with my mom and sister to buy. This one was for Sale by Owner. It ened up being a ver big house. But there were many odd things about it. It was very junky--the previous owners had left all their junk and garbage.

      There were many floors. The top floor was about four stories off the ground and had a great view. But there was a part near the front where the floor and the wall didn't meet so there was a 10-12 inch crack. The previous owners had put some chicken wire across it so that nothing --or no one would fall through.

      On the way down I noticed that one of the staircases was wobbly. I wiggled it a bit and heard it it crack, and it then broke free and fell to the lower floor.

      That was the thing that made us decide that we really didn't want the house. I told mom, "This house is really big, but I don't think it was built very well.".


      The next thing I remember is that I am going down a school hallway on roller blades. I trripped on something and almost lost my balance and thought, "Whoa, that would be very embarassing to fall down here in front of everyone. So I was extra careful after that.

      I got to the Kindergarten hallway. I noticed a display hanging on the wall. It was how one of the classes used cooked lima beams (mashed) and jello to create this wonderful moldable substance. They had displayed a jack-o-lantern and other things that they had shaped out of the stuff. The color was a light clearish orange. Another teacher came by and she also mentioned how neat she thought that was. I pulled out a paper and was about to write down the recipe. Then two more teachers walked by. They were talking about weightloss.

      Then I was back in the original big house. I was standing by the window. I saw a very tall cypress tree by the window. I notied it was moving. I thought it was moving because of the wind (it had been very windy in real life all night). But as I looked closer, I noticed that it was actually moving past the window.

      "It's walking!! A walking tree...just like the last Lucid Task." I thought. "I am dreaming! I'm having a lucid dream! I have to find my cat so she can talk to me..." I looked around. I saw the garage door in front of me I knew my cat would be there if I were only lucid long enough.

      But of course at that thought I felt the dream start to fade.

      And then I woke up.


      But this is a great sign. This often happens to me before I get it right. So I am hoping/expecting to get the Task done in the next night or two.

      Lucid dream /Tasks:

      I have vague memories of sitting on a chair at a round table and staring at the ground. I remember things being somewhat fuzzy.

      As I was looking, I suddenly realized that this was a dream. Everything still felt extremely fragile for a moment while I got myself fully immersed into the dream. And then, there I was.

      I am unsure where this went from here. Several things happened in this dream, and I am trying to get them in the right order. I think at this time I stood up and looked around. I was in a big school auditorium. There was a small stage in the center of the room. It looked like a band was getting ready to come on and play. I could see other people (maybe 20) hanging out.

      I suddenly remembered I had Tasks to do. I searched the crowd. There had to be a DV member in this crowd. I coldn't see anyone that I recognised.

      I then saw some band members coming out. I thought, "This will be so easy. I'll make sure CoLd BlooDed is the guitarist." But then the guitarist came out, and it was a guy with blond curly hair.

      I was beginning to feel frustrated that the DV members weren't appearing. This was supposed to be something I was good at.

      The next thing I remember was being in the air spinning around. It came to me that this is the first time that I had ever spun in a dream. I was glad I was doing it, because hopefully it would help me to stay lucid even longer.

      After spinning. I started flying across the room, back and forth. I then decided that I should try the Advanced Task of going through a portal. There were no mirrors in the room, but I did see a dark dark spot (about 3 feet diameter) on one of the walls. I decided to aim for that spot.

      I sped up and went feet first into that spot. I was successful. It was a portal. All around me I could see more circles that I was going through. And the feeling was incredible.

      I came out in another room. I had to do it again because it felt sooo good. So I started flying around the room and aimed for the dark spot that was on the wall in this room. The same thing happened. .....the continuing circles and that wonderful feeling.

      I did this several times going from room to room just enjoying the experience, until I was back in the original auditorium. I looked at the walls. There were murals painted on the wall. Some were paintings from the Peter Pan movie. I could see one that showed Neverland.

      I decided that I really wanted to go to Neverland. So I decided to make the painting of Neverland be my next portal. I flew again, feet first at the painting. I went through. There were no circles this time. I tried to make out Neverland. I wanted to be in the sky looking down at the island. I could see it. But the detail was so bad. It was like looking at a poorly done painting. I didn't have the feeling of actually being there.

      I suddenly decided that I had done enough with portals and that I really needed to try the DV member part of the Task now.

      So when I came out back in to the auditorium, it was now filled with people sitting at tables. I decided that i would make myself confident and assume that this was a DV reunion.

      I sat down next to a lady at one of the tables. She looked like she was dressed up to be in a movie. She had blue make-up all over her face and had what looked like a bleached blond wig. She also had glasses, and I believe she had a bright green shirt (or outfit) on. I didn't recognise who this was. But I realised that it could be any number of DV members under the costume.

      So I sat next to her and asked, "Which DV member are you?"

      She answered and said "Clairity."

      I said "Hi Clairity, do you know what other DV members are here?"

      She points to a table and says, "Well, that's Gomer, and that's Ivan."

      I felt disappointed because those were not DV members that I knew.

      Gomer then stands up and comes over to Clairity and for a moment I think he is about to flash her. But he doesn't get his pants down very far before he bursts out laughing like it's some inside joke.

      Gomer then starts to take charge. He is holding a clip board and some raffle tickets. He then announces that everyone needs to get a raffle ticket if they haven't yet. They are only five dollars, but this is covering the cost of the reunion and everyone who has a ticket will be able to take home an audio recording of this event.

      For a moment I feel a little insecure--I have no money with me. But then I realise again that this is just a dream.

      And at that moment I woke up.



      Edit:

      I just checked. There are DV member named Gomer and Ivan...both are lurkers with no posts. Funny how I was able to pick actual names of Members. Although with a site this big, it's not that great of a coincidence.<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

      I took a little nap this afternoon and had another lucid dream in which I attempted the Task again.

      Nap Lucid:

      I know the dream was longer, but I'll start when I became lucid.

      I was somewhere, and I suddenly needed to go home and it was going to be a very long walk. I decided that it would go a lot faster if I just flew. So I took off flying. I flew along for a moment at a height of about 6-8 feet off the ground.

      Suddenly it hit me--if I'm flying, I must be dreaming. And--I'm lucid.

      I decided that I really wanted to try the Task again to see what other Dream View Members I could find. So I started looking around for people. I flew a little higher so I would have a better view of the streets I was flying over.

      At first I was seeing no one. Then I looked out in front of me and I was a group of guys playing basket ball in the street.

      I got excited becasue I just knew I was going to be able to make at least one of them be a DV member.

      But as soon as I got close enough to start making out features and trying to decide if anyone looked familiar...I woke up....

      Still it was a good feeling to be able to become lucid again... and so naturally. I really hope this means my dry spell is really over.

      Wow...I just had a long lucid dream in which I did the Task of the Month again, plus several old ones.

      I had awakened at 5:00 I laid in bed about 20 minutes. Then I got on DV for about 45 minutes (looked at old Task of the month) and then went back to bed. I laid there for a little bit wondering if I would go back to sleep. As I felt myself started getting really tired, I made myself open my eyes and glance at the time--6:32.

      The first part of the dream that I remember is being with my two little neices. They had had a birthday party, and things were still decorated. I was talking to one of the neices (K) and she was telling me about how the party theme was Pirates and how fun it had been.

      I then remember picking her up and jumpin with her, and at the top throwing her up a bit and catching her, then both of us would land on the floor. She loved it and I remember noticing how I could keep doing this and not get tired (Missed the dream sign this first time).

      Then I set her down and started doing back flips. I remember being amazed that I was doing such good backflips and I wasn't even on a trampoline. Then I started doing front flips and I noticed how good they made me feel to do them

      Then it hit me. This was a dream-- I loved doing dream flips because they make me feel so good.

      As soon as I realised that I was dreaming I decided I wanted to do the DV Member Task again to see if I could get more DV members to show up.

      This first transistion is a bit fuzzy. I think I started looking through the house for DV members. I didn't find any. I then decided to head out into the backyard so I could try the "Pet" task from last month that I had never gotten a chance to try.

      I walked through the back room next to a sick looking Vietnamese guy huddled in a yellow blanket. I opened the door and went into the yard. It was my yard form my LA house.

      I saw both my current dog and cat there. I started with my dog. "Hey boy, what do you think of me, huh? I need you to talk to me. DO you like me? Tell me what you think." But he kept sniffing at something in the grass and wouldn't even acknowlege my presence.

      I looked and now saw my cat just a few feet away. I asked her the same questions. But like my dog, she seemed more interested in something in the grass than in answering my questions. So I thought about trying another Task before I woke up.

      The Fire Task. I had to do the fire task. I looked around for a fire. There wasn't a fire in my yard. But as I looked over the fence toward my neighbors' yard, I could see smoke and I knew that there was a fire there.

      I flew up and over the fence into my neighbors' yard. I landed on the grass. The yard looked just like I remember the Franko's yard to look. They had been the neighbors that I grew up by. I walked under their big tree. I could see the Frankos on the patio. I told them I needed to borrow their fire for a moment.

      As I got to the far side of the yard I could see a small campfire. It wasn't very big, and I didn't know if it would actually count as walking "through" fire. but I was just doing this for fun anyway since it was now a new month with a new task.

      I looked down at the fire and took small step and and walked over the fire. Since it was only about 2 feet across, I could only step twice--once with each foot.

      I had wondered if the fire would feel hot...or if it would just seem like I was walking on normal ground. Well, as soon as I put my bare foot on the coals, I relalised that this was going to be harder than I thought because the coals were actually very hot and burning the bottom of my foot.

      Still, I walked though. Even though it hurt, it seemed a bit anticlimatic. So I turned around and did it again. It still hurt. I decided that I would keep trying until I could control it and make it so it didn't feel hot to me anymore. On about the fifth time through the fire, I felt that I had achieved that.

      I started walking across the yard back toward my own yard again. Suddenly the neighbors dog ran up to me not looking very friendly [the real Frankos had a dog that scared me as a child]. I decided that it was time to fly.

      I remember wondering what the Frankos must be thinking of my strange visit to their backyard, but then remembered that they were my dream characters and weren't actually thinking anything.

      In my own backyard I saw two large white and brown dogs. I chased them out the side gate.

      I was still not satisfied with my attempt to find DV members so I tried again. I walked around (somewhere near the yard I think) calling out for DV members. I saw this group of people. I asked again if there were any DV memberd present.

      Finally this teenage guy walks toward me from the crowd with his arm up. He said, "I'm a DV member.

      I said, "Great, what's your username?"

      He answered, "T-Arizona"

      I said, "Cool, I think I'll remember that one."

      Then two more guys walked out. One of the boys had two heads, one looked normal, the other had no neck. He told me his username. It was something cool sounding with two words and started with an "S".

      Then the third boy told me his name...which I have also forgotten by now.

      After that I decided to go look some more. I really wanted to find DV members that I knew. I walked inside a building and decided to call out for certain members. I decided to start with Oneironaut.

      So I walked through this crowded building calling out for Onieronaut. Several times I could see black guys that from a distance looked like the right guy. But each time as I got close I could see that I had the wrong guy.

      I finally decided to try another name. This time I called out for CoLd BlooDed. I walked through what now looked like a school building. I called and called, but still got no matches. I even tried CB's real name to see if that made a difference. But it didn't.

      I finally ended up in a hallway by the doors to the outside. There was a group of students there waiting for the bell to ring and for school to get out. There was some teacher by the doors reminding the students to wear their bicycle helmets. The students all repeated a chant about helmets.

      Finally the doors opened. At this point I decided that I wasn't having any luck with finding DV members, so I decided to try another of the older Tasks that I had never gotten done. I decided to do the "Snowman" Task.

      As luck would have it, I walked out of the school and into a snow covered park. There were at least five snowmen in the park. At this point I was also suddenly with my childhood best friend M. I looked at the snowmen and wondered how hard it would be to bring them to life. I decided just to look at them with the expectation that they would just start moving. And sure enough, the one closest to me started twitching. Then it turned so it was facing me, and then started moving toward me. It was smiling, and I felt no fear that it would suddenly become evil and attack me.

      I looked around and saw at least four other snowmen now moving in my direction. When the closest one got to me, I decided that I wanted to go flying with it. I told it to turn around so I could climb on its back.

      After I was on its back I told it to fly. As we took off in the air, I remembered my friend that I had left behind. I knew she was only a DC, but I just felt the need to be polite, so I called back to her to get on the next snowman and to follow me.

      At first I felt cold being on the snowman and flying through a winter sky. But I remembered how I had been successful in changing the temperature in past LDs. I told myself that I would no longer feel the cold since it was just my good imagination making it cold in the first place.

      Gradually the snowman started feeling warm beneath me, and the air became just cool and not cold. It was perfect.

      Then suddenly it was night. We were flying low and past buildings that were all covered with Christmas lights. I remember a building that looked like a City Hall that was just beautiful. We flew so close I could almost touch the lights.


      There is a transition here that I don't remember.

      But the next thing I remember is that I am back in a building looking for DV members. I believe it was an arcade. I could see out the window that it was still dark outside and I could see Christmas lights.

      There were no DV members in the arcade, so I walked into the next room. There was a long skinny swimming pool there, the kind that makes a current that people can just stay in the same spot and swim against it..

      I looked down in the pool to see if anyone I recognised that there. But I saw this man--he was bald and scarred and was very white. It disturbed me, and I suddenly felt myself start to wake up. Instead of fighting against that and staying in my dream, I suddenly realised that I had dreamed such a long LD that it would actually be a really good idea to wake up at this point and see if I could remember all of it.

      So I let myself wake up.
