The Obvious Dream

Had a terrifying dream Sunday that I was being chased by the FBI and every time I tried to hide, the object that I needed to hide behind was either too small or it disappeared.

There was also a dead white dog in my dream. It all felt frightening enough that I woke up and my heart felt like it was going to pound itself out into the open.

Last night I dreamed that someone that I know died. Didn't really feel the need to look up anything in the dream dictionary. Current events are seeping into my dreams.

Went to the pool and the lifeguard did not give me a chance to loiter. Go get your spot before they (the wild boys) get in it.

I have to strategize when I'm next to the wild boys a.k.a. I cannot really do the backstroke until they rest. Otherwise, I end up coughing up water.

Exited around 8:15 p.m. and noticed that it wasn't so light outside anymore and, as I walked toward my car, saw the football team running up and down a hill; that's what they were doing last week too.


  1. I haven't posted anything about the recent goings-on in St. Louis because I don't feel like I have anything useful to add to the conversation. But I share in the sadness, anger, and frustration. As some of the signs say, "Enough is enough." It was "enough" a long, long time ago.

    Hoping you have undisturbed sleep tonight.

  2. Thank you...

    Yeah, I've been glued to Twitter etc. "listening" to the conversation...

  3. Interesting development that the highway patrol has been called in. My idea was to immediately suspend the entire police department - turn in their badges and weapons - and call on the national guard to protect the populace. I guess using other state officers seems like a better solution (to the governor) than bringing in federal intervention. Either way, I want the acknowledgement that the P.D. is out of control and needs to be brought down. It's a really scary situation - when the police are out of control, who, exactly, can do anything about it? Who can stop them? Especially now that they're armed like the military.

  4. Re: the National Guard, you called it.

    "Duh" was my response when I saw the headline "US Rethinks Giving Excess Military Gear to Police."
