Lay-la playing as a house burns down

Sunday, October 4 2009

I was waiting with Kim at a bus stop, travelling to work. When I met her there, I could hear Layla playing, and as I sat down I motioned that I couldn't speak for a moment because I was so moved to tears by the closing instrumental section. A man interrupted the mood by asking if he could borrow my newspaper. I declined, but Kim told me to stop being so mean so I relented. Cars and lorries were squeezing up onto the pavement because of a traffic incident nearby, but it wasn't until Kim loo

The smoking incident

Tuesday, August 26 2008

I was at a hotel with Sophie. We were either moving in or moving out, but the main part of the dream was that we were sitting at a table about to get a meal when I looked up and saw another man sitting with us at or round table. First up a) I knew that Sophie would want to move because we both like a bit of privacy when we are talking and b) the man was smoking. I asked him if he would mind not smoking and he sort of made a gesture that he would limit but not stop his puffs of cloud in our direc

Scissor Sisters and a wonky mains plug

Friday, March 17 2006

Dad was driving the car whilst the Scissor Sisters played on the car radio. He got a little too close to the car in front as he attempted to park up on a slope and I feared that he might cause some damage. I was in the bedroom and looking at the mains plug as grey smoke billowed out from the socket. I quickly pulled at the plug from mains, but must have made some error in judgment because my radio then refused to work.

The fire drill conference

Monday, September 12 2005

I was in a dark room for a conference on fire drill - what you do in a fire kind of thing. The speaker asked what is the first thing to do in a fire, so I put my hand up and the answer was hit the floor for air. Someone answers 'get a glass of water or open the door', which was wrong so I put my hand up again which woke me up. I also had all the fire and smoke in the conference at the same time as the conversation was going on.

Black smoke and the evacuated premises

Wednesday, July 20 2005

Builders dump rubbish and put paving stones in place to do some work. Shop windows billow thick black smoke and I go into three shops to tell everyone to get out, though evacuation seems to be going on anyway. Most are calm, but one woman's paniced scream is heard.

Me, buying and smoking cigarettes

Saturday, January 8 2005

I was basting a chicken, turning it over and over with help from a cook. I bought some mint flavor cigarettes in a shop and dad was behind the counter of a post office, serving my brother Dave. I don't smoke, and I was thinking what they may say when I lit up and inhaled.

My bed was smoking

Wednesday, November 17 2004

A black dog was running around making friends with Mum. I had been working overtime at the office and had filled in my timesheet when the boss had a look at it and was surprised at how many hours I had done. Smoke was rising from my bed and I was moving and trying to smother the area from which the smoke was coming from. A man arrived at work to sell fried chicken and when he had left a woman came to the office, just missing him.

I climbed in through the bedroom window...

Saturday, October 23 2004

I had climbed into my bedroom through a window where the door ought to be. I could sense smoke so I had to take a look. It took me ages to get my legs up and my body able to wiggle in through, because the window was deceptively small. Once inside, I could see white smoke still billowing, but from where?

Angela Rippon in tears

Thursday, June 17 2004

Angela Ripon cried after departing a football show in 1999. Men stay in a smoke-filled room for many days without realising. One drank, or rather, ate coffee grounds.

The burning lava

Friday, February 6 2004

Friend makes a fire and puts lots of thngs to be burned into the fireplace. Very soon it is roaring merrily. But he is not happy because he expected a kind of lava to flow out and into a bucket. The room is very dark, aside from the fire, with lots of smoke filling the room.
