I’ve been trying writing one line or phrase from each dream in a month, as a way of distilling a month’s dream content. I decided to put two Februaries together here, from a year apart. It has intriguing moments.
Feb 2022 Dreams My ex- sneaks from the hospital, leaving his mess for others In a big lagoon, two burly men swim past in furry costumes I try to get back to a gala gathering Friend’s Asian father says “only come for Thanksgiving” An artifact arrives in the mail My Little Pony parade goes past, with a sentient Anubis Bob helps keep my truck on the road In New Orleans, dragon-guys fight, and I chew smoky meat We tie our houseboats together Up in the air, Soren and a friend research faux-birds Feb 2023 Dreams My lover is engaged No way upstairs There’s an easier way to the spiritual place, I tell Father Brown The bedroom roof is leaking, Angel sees it with me The gentle lion’s chest blazes from a heating pad, but she’s okay Someone’s packed my classroom He doesn’t want to do radio anymore Little presents with bright pink writing – I’ve been to prison A family’s dress-up party, dad in shining armor They’ve moved the furniture, one piece doesn’t fit My bath leaks through the floor My neighbor holds a sign for her party I can’t teach in Wales! I teach here! I’m supposed to leave for a different job Men paint archways like ancient buildings
