House on Fire

Monday, October 25 2010

It's 1983. It's not written anywhere, but I know.  I am seeing people as if we are all in a faded photograph. Colors are faded: we've all got a yellow-y orange-y, green-ish tinge. I am with my family on the back lawn. Extended family: cousins, aunts, uncles. I am eight or so, and all of the family I know now are all age appropriate to 1983.  We are on the lawn watching my house burn down. My uncle is somewhere inside trying to rescue the cats, and we are waiting for him to come back

Turtles, Rats at a Hotel on the Beach

Rating
Thursday, January 7 2010

I remember this only in fragments:   My family is staying at a hotel on the beach. The hallways all look alike so I am wary of walking into the wrong rooms. I like a turtle with a shiny orange back, so I take it to my room.  I watch it crawl to the window and stand on its back legs. Suddenly, it tips forward out of the window. We are high up, so I know he's dead, but I want to find out where he landed. I walk along the beach, but I can't remember which room I'm in, so I can't focus

A daughter, A plane, Evacuation

Sunday, January 3 2010

I am in a line of people at the airport. Over the loudspeaker, a father is apologizing to everyone about his daughter. "When you head for the plane, do not look at her, it will make her mad".  (She has control over the weather and calls up hurricanes when she is angry. ) I am now first in line to board a plane. I think we are all being evacuated. I look out across the airfield to the small plane in the distance. The woman in uniform tells me to keep out of the girl's line of sight. The tro

An alligator in the fishpond

Sunday, December 6 2009

We have a goldfish pond in the backyard. It is a sunny day. My cat is walking along the edge of the pond. Suddenly, an alligator emerges from the water, snatches and swallows my cat. It moves onto the pavement and swallows my dog. I scream and run outside and punch the alligator to try to get it to release my animals, but all I can do is watch and cry.   [I woke up trying to catch my breath]

Plastic Baby (excerpt)

Thursday, November 19 2009

It is dark. I am inside my grandmother's house. The lviing room has thick carpet. Night. Old fashioned radiator that hisses steam. I walk to the staircase and grab the wood railing. It creaks. I walk upstairs and at the landing is a short hallway to my left. Walls and doors are dark wood. Bedroom doors are closed. There is a small window to my back and it gives off a faint white/grey glowy light, so that I can see only a few feet before me, the rest of the hallway is dark. I look down. There is

Void

Thursday, November 12 2009

I am in complete darkness. I can't see anything around me.  I am lying on my back on a firm surface, but it's soft to the touch. Let's say it's a mattress, but it's not a comforting feeling. I don't feel as if I'm in a bedroom. I am deprived of the senses of sight, smell, taste, hearing. The surface begins to shift, so it goes almost vertical, so that I am struggling to keep from slipping down into the dark feet first. When I get a grip on the mattress, it tips to the left, then tips to t

Cats

Monday, December 17 2007

My grade school friend, appearing as an adult, takes the skins of cats (complete with heads and whiskers) and nuzzles my ear with them. Later, my black and white cat (in reality still alive) was stuffed and programmed to move and meow like a real cat.

Italian

Friday, December 14 2007

I am in a villa (?) in Italy in the 19th century (?). A black haired woman is taking a bath in a tub. She is reading a letter and speaking with anger. The dream is in "Italian" although I do not know the language and I do not understand what she says. She is not aware of my presence.

Buses Trains & Monorails

Monday, November 19 2007

On a train or monorail. Thomas says hello and sat in front of me holding a baby. Moving through town. We're rocking back and forth with the motion of the train. We pass Fried chicken places; I spy a high school boy as counter help at a diner / ice cream shop. Across the aisle was a girl (teenage) minister and a boy arguing over religion. The dream skips and I end up between them; The dream skips again and the minister, the boy and I are suddenly on the train's roof. I grabbed both of them to ba

A journey by train

Saturday, November 17 2007

On a train journey--I was supposed to get on a bus for a short ride back to my house, but I accidentally got on a train. Don't know where it was going. We got re-routed. I began talking to two women sitting in front of me but I don't remember the content. I mentioned I didn't drive. Then the dream shifted to a bar or a snack counter at a diner. Damian Lewis sat to the right of me and Kevin McKidd to the left. I talked to DL first. I thought, "it's too bad I'm ugly" Then he excused himself for s
