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 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'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.)

I've known that dogs dream for decades just from watching my dog when he was asleep - he'd be sleep-running and sleep-barking in a subdued way, 'chasing rabbits' as we'd call it. Sometimes he'd wake up and be clearly confused that he wasn't in the place and/or circumstance he'd been dreaming about. After a moment or two he'd do the dog equivalent of a shrug and get on with waking stuff. To now know that dogs are capable of understanding the concept of dreams is pretty amazing.

The 'ouch' bit is why I love dogs so much - you don't get physically hurt in dreams (by which I mean humans don't experience imaginary physical pain that I'm aware of) but you do or can experience emotional pain and it seems pretty likely that that's the ouch Bunny means.

Is that guilt? Is this dog feeling remorse for something she did or was reprimanded for in a dream? Is she wrestling with the question of whether if we dream it then is that what we're really like in just the way everybody else does? I'm not sure dogs are ready for the balm of Jungian psychoanalysis yet - let's face it lots of humans aren't.

Awwwww.

Put me in mind of this poor pooch who became awake after he crashed into a wall.

Bunny uses "ouch" to refer to various unpleasant things apart from actual pain, especially loud noises. But she also has some emotional vocabulary, including "concerned" (which broadly covers the sadness-fear range).

I can't believe she's able to imagine problems she's never experienced. As far as I know, her worst physical pains have been a burr in her foot and an ear infection. She's not going to dream about something like a broken leg because she doesn't know legs can break.

When she was talking about her dream, she was looking at the puppy Otter on the sofa. I bet she dreamed about the two of them playing together. Otter is still new to the family and Bunny is still working through it all. They were playing and he nipped her? There was a loud noise?

Previous dreams Bunny has reported were "stranger animal", "dog, cat, animal", "sound [and] smell", and very recently (during a hot dry spell) "water rain".

I've seen friends dogs do this too, we're watching tv, dog asleep on the couch or floor, then suddenly the rear leg twitches/moves.

I see it to an extent too with my cat though not as much.

(no dream report from me today due to a sleepless night from cold winds and draughts)

Towards the end of a a bizarre and pointless dream, the concept of naked ice skating intruded itself on my consciousness. Yes, it is a Thing on the Internet......

I was in a house, in the laundry when I realised yellow stuff was coming from the back of the washing machine.

I then realised that a tree had been chopped down outside and the wood was coming out from the other rooms, all had to be cleaned up.

A fellow came to borrow a shaver, and we admired the stained glass like design on the outside of the house.

I never thought I would have to google "naked ice skating" but I did.

Dream 1:
I was waiting for a bus? just before a busy junction station in my area, when a historical train came along on a tour. I got on, thinking I could just get out at the station, only realising once I was on, that it would be parked in the yard and not going to the platform.

The train bypassed the station and parked in a turning lane of the road.
I was able to get out and then saw a nice arrangement of leaves under a tree.

Dream 2:
I was at a clubhouse, and had two bottles in my bag. I then talked to people on the sand and found little owl ornaments partly buried.
The others wondered if they were part of a display facing the windows, but I didn't know.

Then we set off walking to class, along a busy highway. I crossed over at one point, then realised I had to cross back, the changes to the road layout were confusing.

I met up with my friend's mother and as we were walking along, she asked how I was, and I said not the best.

We entered a room at the retirement village, there was a woman already at a sewing machine or loom, we went to another room and I sat next to my friend's mother.

I was going to book in via email but had forgotten, took a $10 note out of my purse to pay the tutor.
Then others started arriving.

For some reason, my subconscious decided to taunt me with the idea that SWSOIWLTB was now dating, if not actually cohabiting, with DJ Norman Cook (?????) and was in the process of installing a dancing pole in the bathroom to further spice up the relationship........

What the ever-loving F*CK this means is beyond me.
