the name of the dream
the celebrity dream

it was a blisteringly hot day

just about everyone was wearing a skimpy t-shirt or was bare-chested (alas, no women in the dream)

in the next scene, i was in a bodybuilding gym as big as the ground floor of a department store and was kitted out with every type of mechanical aide, weight-stand, bench, rack… imaginable

it was much too hot a day for working up a sweat and that was probably the reason why there were so few people (about fifteen) in the place

however, the most dedicated, or is that the vainest, of us, are doing the occasional rep of this, that or the other with maximum weights

arnie, of “i’ll be back” fame was doing squats, he looked absolutely enormous (one of the two stand-out visual scenes of the dream)

we swapped comments and watched and critiqued as we each done a leisurely rep now and then

the scene changed, i am sitting down in what might be the carriage of a train but the seats are facing each other with the access-aisle for the passengers between the seats

at one point i look across the aisle and see a man sitting on the floor between the legs of a man sitting on the bench-seats

the man sitting on the seat is leaned forward with his head above and apparently resting his head on the head of the man on the floor

at first glance, it looked really freaky, like one body with two heads, one attached or growing on top of the other

i saw the opportunity for a fun photo

for the photo, i imagined getting behind the man sitting on the seat and resting my head on his head in the same way his head was resting on the man sitting on the floor

a picture of what it would like popped into my head… i had pulled the hair at the sides of my head out sideways and had a broad teeth-smile, the person sitting on the floor had a fun-smile on his face and hid his arms from view, as did the man sitting on the seat

the man sitting on the seat was wearing an off-white mac and his clothing was dishevelled, it was columbo, again (22122018)

it would be a great fun-photo

via the magic of dream-time, a sophisticated, multi-functional camera (the aperture dial and film-speed and the other features on the top of the camera was an equal stand-out visual of the dream ) was resting in my hands

asked a passer-by to take the photo and the dream ended as i was trying to explain, without success, to the passer-by about the settings of the camera

the name of the dream
the website

had been developing my website for some while but was still discovering and experimenting

in one scene, i left lots of blank lines between the top half of the text and where the text began again

the blank spaces were big enough to contain two or more pages of text

in the next or another scene, i was reading an email from the providers (wordpress) of the website

their programmers had discovered a new and significant way of utilising a page with large gaps or spaces between the text with new features and had got the idea as a direct result of coming across my website with the large gaps between passages of text

they were so pleased with what possibilities had opened up the letter told me i could have any and every feature that was or would be available for their products and i could have as many pages and .com names as i wanted for free, for life

the name of the dream
the modern vintage bike

was surfing the net when i came across a bicycle made from modern materials but had a vintage look to it and it captured my imagination

the bike had a basket on the front and a basket on the back

the triangular frame had a light metal alloy green plate which filled the gap between the tubes of the frame

the pedals were thick and the bike itself looked “chunky” although the weight of the bike was the same as the bike i have in awake-time (one of those bikes you can lift with your little finger)

the person selling the bike was asking one-thousand pounds but was prepared to take my bike in exchange for the one being sold

the end of the dream was me in a state of dejection as i realised that swapping my bike for the advertised one was a monumental blunder

the bike i now owned didn’t have any gears (the bike i had to start with had twenty-seven gears) which effectively made it “unfit for purpose”

to get the performance of my original bike from this new vintage-look bike would mean having to spend more than the value of both the bikes combined

the longer the last scene of the dream lasted, the more depressed i became

it was a relief to wake up and find i’d had been having a bad dream

notes 1

the previous day’s experience’s which caused this dream are clearly remembered

the name of the dream
a good giggle

the laughing part of the dream began about a third of the way into the dream

to begin with, it was a soft titter that grew and grew and grew until it became a noisy and unstoppable giggle that woke me out of the sleep

although the dream produced a nice feeling, i was still feeling tired and went back to sleep, and now, some hours later, i can’t recall what the dream was about

the second dream
the name of the dream
wasted fried fish

arrived at the bus station with half an hour to spare

was feeling peckish and with more than enough time to eat a meal it follows that the second scene would be of me in a cafeteria

was sitting on a bar-stool style seat with my elbows resting on a narrow shelf about a third of a metre deep waiting for someone to come and take my order

in the next scene, i am giving the waitress my order of fish and chips

the waitress was writing the order when a man sitting near to me said, “you can have this fish.”

i looked to where the man was sitting and could see the fish on his plate

it was a shade of amber and crisp and fresh (the stand-out visual part of the dream)

i was about to ask the waitress to strike the fish off my order when another voice behind me said: “you can have mine as well.”

his plate too had a tasty-looking fish on it, only not as big as the first one

i was about to have a banquet for a few coppers

the waitress admonished the two men in a friendly manner and said something along the lines of “we don’t allow that.” and went out of the scene with her pen and notebook

the dream ended there

first dream
the name of the dream

it’s not just the brick walls that stop a person dead in their tracks when walking while in prison; in prison, brick walls come in many varieties

those of us who find “a pleasure shared is a pleasure doubled” will be able to identify with the sentiment when it comes to having a “toke”

sharing your weed in the nick is something of a status activity

it says to others that the “system” hasn’t completely got the better of you and it also allows you to demonstrate your generous nature

the two lads who were enjoying the benefits of being “high” weren’t my best friends in prison but, as mentioned, a pleasure shared…

the “session” had been going on for an hour or two and, eventually, we had smoked all of the blow

the two lads asked if i had, or could get, any more

when i said “no” they got up, and without a “thanks” or “goodbye”, left me

at that moment the “feel-good” factor from the hash vanished and a sense of betrayal took its place

it felt as though i’d just come up against a brick wall

notes 1

in recent days i had spoken to someone who was aware of the situation we all find ourselves in and had chosen to live in, and for, the moment

the attitude the person had toward me was reflected in his parting comment

it has played on my mind for the last few days and is the cause of this dream

notes 2

the underlying cause of most, and maybe all, of the reasons people choose the here and now over the future, reduces to one thing, not being willing to put in the effort of acting ethically
