10:52 am - Weird dream
I had a strange dream a couple of nights ago. I was swimming around, rescuing all of my friends from drowning. They had purposely thrown themselves in whatever body of water it was, trying to drown themselves.
Only for one friend, svairini, I rescued her stuff, and not her. The stuff was indistinct in my dream, but I understood it to be things like her Tablah (sp?) drums, and her piano, and maybe her sari's and other Indian clothes.
I understood her (as one sometimes does in dreams) to have a job I think she'd be really good at, and hate. It was a high-stress, high-paying job where she wore corporate women's wear a lot. She wasn't ostensibly in charge of a lot, but she held a high level support position of some kind.
So, I was still rescuing svairini, even if I wasn't rescuing her body. I was rescuing her dreams, and all the things that made her who she is. When I woke up from the dream, the fact almost made me cry, because in some ways, her throwing her stuff in the water was even worse than my other friends throwing themselves in.
