Weird dream - Journal of Omnifarious

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

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.

What a dream. And what a vivid description of it, at that. I wonder what it means.

On another note, how's Seattle going for you? Exploring much? Need help at all?

I don't know. svairini found it curious and interesting too when I showed the entry to her. She tends not to do LJ much now unless someone points her at something in specific. Too busy.

Seattle is going OK. Now that I have my computer and stuff here, it will be too easy for me to fall into a rut in which I don't talk to anybody. :-( Hopefully my laptop will help that. I need to make a point of going places and doing things.

The thing is, I enjoy my work, and the work I do that's for my own projects. There are other things I'm looking for in life, but it's easy to be distracted by the things I already have.

Well if it makes you happy, then by all means, cheers.

It's good that the things you have bring you joy. You don't necessarily always have to step out just to have fun. I enjoy being nomadic with my computer at home, too. Plus I hear its cold as hell out there, too. Brr.

Yes, but I'm not enjoying being girlfriendless all the time. So I really do need to get out more, or something.

I think you should pick up Seattle's WHERE magazine.

According to the Best of 2003, the best and little-known place to find hot women is City People's Garden in Madison Park (somewhat Arboretum/Montlake neighborhood). Apparently they are swarming there. You never know...
