Alice, Clouds, and a Pet Monkey

Rating
Thursday, July 20 2017

        Morning of July 20, 2017. Thursday.        For no reason that I can discern in conscious afterthought, my dream self seems to be in a state of contemplation of the Tom Waits album "Alice" (which I have not heard in years). With the title song, I am seemingly in a field looking up at many small clouds in a dense pattern. I seem to "return" to contemplating the clouds a few times even though there are at least a couple partial awa

Beautiful Storm

Rating
Thursday, December 29 2016

        Morning of December 29, 2016. Thursday.        I am living with my family as we appear now in an apartment that seems very high up in an unknown building in an unknown region, perhaps twenty floors up. The location, including the outside view, is not familiar, though it is vaguely reminiscent of the London Bridge area. My dream begins when I become aware of seeing sparse storm clouds through a window, though as if from a viewpoint of lying down. It

Tuesday, July 5 2016

        Morning of July 5, 2016. Tuesday.        I am on a porch, not fully in my dream body yet not fully incorporeal either (possibly as a result of a stronger and direct awareness of being on the porch itself, as it is a very common liminal space setting that often serves as a waking precursor or dream state transition). The porch is like a half and half composite of the Loomis Street house's porch (which faced east) and the Barolin Street house'

Thursday, October 22 2015

        Morning of October 22, 2015. Thursday.         I am looking at various parts of a panoramic photograph on a computer, which was recently emailed to us by my sister Marilyn (though deceased February 13, 2014). Over time, I study the photograph more and more closely, continuously noticing new features. She is standing at the side of the building on 901 Rose Street (which no longer exists) where I last lived at age six (before moving back t

Imposing Neighbors and Playing in the Sky

Rating
Saturday, March 28 2015

       Morning of March 28, 2015.  Saturday.        This was a long meandering dream though it ends on an interesting note.  It is partly a typical imposing neighbors dream.  I am not sure where my family and I are living.  It seems a bit like the Barolin Street house but also features more and larger rooms and an unusual layout.  At one point, there is a knock on the front door and I see that it is a (unfamiliar) man

Wednesday, January 21 2015

        Morning of January 21, 2015. Wednesday.        I seem to be in La Crosse, but over time, I get a vague idea that I am not where I should be. However, I am not fully lucid at any point even though I regard my environment as if being in a dream. This is a fairly common state since early childhood but it is not of a fully conscious awareness as in vivid lucid dreams or scripted dreams. Another male is following me but is being more of a nuisance than

Thursday, November 13 1980

        Morning of November 13, 1980. Thursday.         This version of a dream that seemed to partly replay a dream from 1973 involves standing at the bus stop on Loomis and Gillette. I get a strange sense of moving into the sky while somehow staying on the ground at the same time. It is probably solely my mental awareness that rises or expands. I get an impression of the concepts of “gray” and “grey” and am trying to work

Rooftop Heaven

Rating
Monday, February 9 1976

        Morning of February 9, 1976. Monday.        Nothing dramatic really happens here, but it seems to last a fair amount of time. Jesus Christ, in larger seemingly layered robes, seems to appear standing on our roof - on the northeast area near the chimney my father built, and the concept of "rooftop Heaven" comes to mind. Over time, I see "miniature clouds" moving through our backyard, not that high from the ground (only about six
