don't mess with Texas


Dreamt last night that me and the missus went to visit Farmer's Wife in Texas. We were invited to her son's birthday party (she has a beautiful house, btw, according to my dream) and it is a hot and dry and mountainous place--although she lives in a flat part of Texas (they're farmers, right?).
WELL, that was the fun part of the dream. An 18 wheeler pulled up and the trucker dumped a huge box on the ground, which was for me. It split open and was a mess (never did find out what was in there for me) and I started chasing him as he drove away but I took an unfamiliar turn out of the driveway and I was alone running up the mountain roadway and came to a river and the truck crashed through the bridge onto the ice covered river, taking another car with it, and I could see that somebody had rigged the bridge to fall but I was the lone witness to a crime, and I scrambled up the other side and came across a school that turned out to be full of voodoo stuff, like dead alligators and skulls and shrunken heads.....
Well, anyway. I am not blaming my host here, but the whole thing reminds me of Twin Peaks--you ask, what is all this and why am I in the middle of it?

Dreams like that crack me up - you wonder what your mind is trying to tell you!

Farmers*swife was definitely sending out signals again. I think she dreams of blogging and somehow makes a connection!

Really interesting dream Gary, you do have wonderful ones. I think this one is liked to emotions stirred over the past week, it does seem to be an examination of fear and death and being somewhere unfamiliar. A lot of the time I find the emotions in the dream are the key to linking them with life, it's the bodies way of making us confront them or explore them more deeply. So now.
