I had a dream last night


I don't suppose dreams are all that unusual. What's usual is that I remember part of this one.

I remember I left the house and just started walking. I don't remember there being any sort of sensation of warmth or cold. Maybe you don't get those when you're in a dream. I hope it was warm, though, because I was apparently only wearing a blanket and carrying my clothes. This is also odd, because I would no more go outside naked than fly, but there I was, apparently completely unconcerned about it.

Finally at some point I decided to stop and put on the clothes. The place I stopped was by the seashore, There were waves, which you don't get walking along Puget Sound, so I must have been walking quite a while. It was the back porch of a house. One of those really homey houses, with a little window greenhouse and patio furniture and stuff. There were also two musical instruments there. I don't remember the first. Maybe it was a guitar. The second had a body like an oversized banjo head -- maybe two feet across -- almost no neck, and only one string. The string was tightened by an odd device that looked like a Greek letter, or maybe a frog from a coat.

As I got into position to put on my underwear I brushed up against the banjo-looking instrument. It didn't make a sound, but I managed to right it before it fell down. As I did so a man appeared at the door. He was a young man, about 25. I don't remember anything else about him. I told him something like "Don't mind me, I'm just passing through." At least that sounds like me. He gave me an inscrutable look and went back into the house, but I could tell he was keeping an eye on me.

I woke up at that point. There was probably more to it, but I don't remember any of it. In fact I'm a bit surprised I remembered that much.

Heck of a way to reactivate a blog after almost a year, huh? I had to scramble a bit to figure out what screen name I'd used.
