Default Re: Weird Dream(s)

I had the weirdest serial dream this morning, one that continued after several wakeful periods. I dreamed I was a visitor at a resort that was in a renovated old convent on a cliff overlooking the ocean or a large lake. There were piney woods nearby. The first night there, I went out with some other guest to descend the cliff to the beach in moonlight. The cliffs were lit up by strategically placed solar floodlights, it was magical. Atop the cliff in a clearing in the woods, I met a nice tall male employee of the resort, sort of a forest ranger type. He was talking to us about the wildlife in the area, when all of the sudden he starts yelling, "We don't want you here!", and runs toward the edge of the forest. In fact, he ran right into the dark forest cover, yelling and waving his arms. He came back a short while later, explaining that he was scaring off a bear. "A bear?" one guest exclaimed. "Yes, we have bears here. One should be cautious, especially at night.

After that I went to have dinner at their restaurant called "Shangr-La", where you ordered at your table via Amazon Dot. "Alexa, I would like to have a ribeye steak, medium rare, baked potato, and iced tea." "Your order of a ribeye steak and baked potato will be served in 23 minutes," Alex replied almost instantly. The next morning when I went there for breakfast, I sat down, Alexa greeting me, "Welcome back to Shangri-La, Warren. How may I help you?"

One the grounds of this resort was a large building that contained a rather fun obstacle course that started with a pool where you waded with fishes if you wanted to. Different paths through the obstacle course were based on degree of difficulty. I chose one that was rather difficult, at one point requiring a leap from one ladder to another. There was a safety net below though, so it wasn't as risky as it could have been. The paths all ended at a large room where people, families with children and others, were doing art work or crafts. It was fun play.

A few miles away was a more desert-like area, that looked a lot like the canyon country of Utah. I went for a hike in that area, finding a cave which I explored. While in the cave, I met a police officer in uniform, who was looking for a lost child. I assisted the search. The officer found the child had fallen off a low cliff and twisted an ankle. We went back to the resort lodge together, taking turns giving the little girl piggy-back rides.

Later that second day, I went down to the beach so swim and lounge. While on the beach, I saw a boy toddler playing with rocks on the shore. He was quite obviously blind, and alone. I clicked some rocks together, much to his amusement. Then a voice bubbled up out of the wet sand, saying, "How would you like if someone clicked your stones together?" I was naked at the time, cringing at the thought. I got up to walk on down the beach. After a bit, I noticed the water was rising for whatever reason, so I went back. I found the baby boy was under water. I grabbed him up out of the water, he spit up some water, but seemed okay. I saved a drunken man who was also submerged. Then I carried the baby down the beach, looking for his parents.

I ended up carrying the baby back to the resort lodge to look for someone in management. Wonders wouldn't have it, the management was all nuns. It was still a convent. I was still naked, and carrying a naked baby, but it didn't seem weird at all at the time. Then the baby spoke in a very adult voice, saying, "It's time for you to get up." My alarm on my phone was sounding; it was indeed time to get up. Weird dreams.

So there's this commercial that's playing on children's shows that has a little boy trying to clean something out of the lint trap in a dryer, yelling up to his mom that he's got it, but she can't hear him because the washer is so loud, so she comes downstairs all mad, and then it switches to a voiceover and the kid says, "I used to have a family, but now I live in a children's home," and then they pitch their quiet washers and dryers that won't piss your mom off so much she sends you to an orphanage.

So, as part of my duties with the watchdog organization I guess I work for, I am told to make an official tweet about this commercial. And the way you send the "official" tweet is that you go to the tea house in the strip mall in the middle of the bifurcated highway and tape the text to the door so they can officially tweet it.

So I get there, and the whole strip mall is places called stuff like "Whole Luck Dragon" and "Happy Jade" and stuff, and there's also one called "Health Witness" for some reason, but they're pretty much indistinguishable and they all seem to be some variety of tea house. So I'm going in them and asking, and they're all pretending they're other kinds of business. Like one guy makes me sit on the floor and pretends to cut my hair, and at another one, they get a guy to come out with a box pretending that he's selling burritos.

So I sat outside for a really long time, I guess, and just waited for someone else to go tape a tweet to the door so I could see which one it was.

It was the one on the corner.

I dreamed my lawyer called me without identifying himself. I recognized his voice when he said "What did you want to ask the judge?"
Me: "And this is regarding?"
Him: ...
Me: Woke the fuck up, wondering what prompted that stupid little dream.

For the last 2 mornings I have had dreams about non-consensual sexual touching. Instead of leaving or telling the guy to fuck off, for some reason my only option was to try to explain and argue and convince him to stop, which of course was not effective. It wasn't so much traumatic as just really annoying, both in the dream and after waking up.

I'm concerned about this. My dreams, especially the bad/weird ones, tend to follow just a few specific themes and they've been the same few themes for as long as I can remember. This is new and I don't like it. I hope it doesn't stick around.

I've been having a series of dreams where I revisit places that only exist in my dreams, and I haven't had those dreams for years and years. Plus the ice cream cones with Hot fudge, but oddly hip and low impact (did you have to give me that ice cream scoop in my hand/ Was there not more sanitary way to deliver ice cream?)
the gentrification of my dreams (really? Can I never escape hipsters and that?)


I am sad my dreams are being gentrified as well as my life. That is all

It was a precognitive dream. I heard from my lawyer yesterday, through the mail, a request for information from the other party's lawyer. I provided most of what they asked for this morning, but I have to make another trip there tomorrow with a few more things.

I was a back as an infantry squad leader. Right before setting off on a mission, right at the line of departure, I blurted out to my squad, "After all this time doing this, I still don't grasp the fundamental meaning of discipline". They looked at me aghast.

Fast forward

In the middle of the mission, there was a big old 3 story federal period building on a mostly bare ridge. We were looking out toward it from behind some vegetation, and just before were about to continue on our way, I said "I need to find out who's in there". My squad all seemed pretty impressed with that, for some reason.

The building was inspired by a show I saw earlier that day, something about Tesla. They were trying to find the location of his lab in Colorado Springs. They had a newspaper photo of the lab with the Printers Union home in the background. The home was a big handsome structure sticking up starkly from the empty plain.

Not that weird, really, but I rarely remember dreams, so I wanted to write it down.
