Weird dream in which I woke up in my bedroom but realised that it had acquired an extra window, and a door which would have opened onto a twelve foot drop into my neighbour's back garden...

I often have "lucid" dreams, in which I am aware I am dreaming and can, to some extent, control the narrative. I also have many bizarre and surreal dreams, where nothing makes much sense. Last night (actually this morning) I had a combination of the two. There were many of the usual motifs of my weird dreams, but with such crystal clarity I did not realise I was dreaming. I wandered around for some time, looking for my friend's flat, which for some reason was in the middle of a run-down industrial estate (an overly harsh description of the reality of Harlow imho!) Unable to find it, or make any sense of what was going on, I began to ask myself if it could possibly be a dream. I have a technique for waking myself up from "lucid" dreams, which I employed, and awoke in my bed as expected, but I have rarely had such a realistic dream.

I was sorting out papers/letters. A woman asked me if I ever read any, while sorting them. No, I replied, only those for me.

I then heard a song with the word 'plateau', followed by the line 'and I am in my shadow'.

I was at the next township down the peninsula from where I live, waiting/looking for a bus back.

My plastic ticket holder was falling apart with some bits about to break off.

I saw the bus stop I needed but something was blocking the way and I had to walk up the hill, then back around to get there.

I then walked into a shopping mall and saw a group of pre-teen girls all having their hair dyed purple.

Then I saw a lass at a desk poring over a folder of a house/property.

Going to a school information session with my mum and sister, re book series for parents.

Before it, my sister got several bags of snacks to take, I saw a teacher from my school there too.

I thought I'd then be taken to my rehearsal but mum wasn't prepared for that, then I realised I'd left my instrument at home.

I needed a jacket from the car as the weather got colder and realised my hair needed tying up.

I had a lucid dream once, and found the whole experience horrendous! I sincerely hope it never happens again.

Being an avid gamer, I do often have "gaming" type dreams, in which I'm simultaneously a participant in the action and a detached observer, analyser, and decision-maker about the action. Not the same as a lucid dream, because even the "player" half is unaware it's in a dream.

Dream 1:

A girl who'd started at a new school was scanning a crowd for a friend - she wanted me to go with her, pushing through a zig zag style structure that went uphill.
We still hadn't found the friend, another girl commented on this girl's dress, but the first one ignored her.

I then thought we were at the end of the search but saw more kids higher up.

Dream 2:
I was on a train, the driver had his young son with him and as we went through a station, people took risks by being trackside. The driver swore and then we pulled up short of the destination station, had to walk the rest of the way.

A lass asked about the cabin being locked and she hadn't secured the brake.
As we walk along, kids then ask us about pets and birthdays.

There was a program called Amplifon* for music. I saw my German teacher from school and another girl.

Former Aust. PM Julia Gillard was also there, I didn't know anyone in the current program and said 'see what women can get done'.


*Amplifon is a brand of hearing aid, with tv ads in Aus.

(some of these dreams ran onto each other but I'm treating them separately)

Dream 1:

A cathedral service. I nearly became trapped in a small porch like area as all four doors closed. I went out and wandered into a small shop, where they could hear the service.

Dream 2:
I had a big stack of new books to put on display at a large library. My folder broke, I couldn't buy a new one for a week due to finances, and someone gave me something to help with that, but it wasn't money.

Dream 3:
Maybe in my aunt/uncle's small church interstate, I was shown a birds nest with small eggs in it in the front pew - I wanted a photo but my phone/Ipad had reset and I couldn't get it off the home screen.

And what was a dead end street had been demolished for a freeway to go through.

I was on a bus coming home from work and was getting ready to get off at the next stop (the nearest to my home) when the bus turned around. The driver explained that the bridge was closed, so he'd have to go around the railway junction to get to the other side. I was thinking that (a) the bridge might actually be closed now, but wasn't back when I was catching the bus home that way and (b) why couldn't he let me off so I could walk through as I was that close to home anyway. At this point, he drove off at considerable speed, making my head spin.
I then woke up and my head is still in a spin now!

I was in Sydney (I think) with at least two other people. Suddenly we went for a walk except I didn't have shoes on and only one sock on one foot, so I was 'carried' by the other two so my feet didn't touch the ground/road.

We got to the other end, and hit the closed gate/barrier, had to climb over it.

We were then going to get a different bus back, passed a big bank building and I spoke of my banker grandfather who would have worked in some of the city buildings.
Then the elevator doors closed too fast, the three of us couldn't get in together.

I've just seen this published by Australia's ABC.

A conductor of a community orchestra I was in 20 years ago said that they were also suffering in lockdown, no university students nor city workers.

I got some programs from their concert to show how they worded things.

There was a drama item first and I didn't realise it was part of the show.

Then saw my priest friend and he gave me protective glasses, asking where was my mask. We then stepped our way around Lego towers with the question - man on the moon or more?

I was watching a school rehearsal of a large musical item, orchestra on the stage, choir on the floor.
The principal had learnt a few words of another language.

A teacher played the piano. I went to make myself a hot chocolate drink and realised I'd accidentally bought the smaller sized tin that had ingredients I can't have - had to avoid them to get the chocolate powder out.

Thought this was a good place to share this!

I don't know how many have seen my Quite Interestrings thread about Bunny, the dog who uses a keypad to talk:
http://old.qi.com/talk/viewtopic.php?p=1370762

That was back in January, and her command of language is expanding all the time.

One of her newest topics is "dream", which was introduced when she repeatedly tried to express something about "sleep talk". She may be the first non-human animal to report a dream, unless one of the signing apes got there first.

This film clip was yesterday morning. Aww. Some dreams are like that.

(They've also just got a new puppy, Otter, who hasn't started formal language training yet but is already showing a keen interest in the buttons, including pressing "ear" after he had a sore ear treated.)
