I'm in an odd dream with very lavish sets (much forgotten). A shift occurs and I'm in a community living space that's kind of like a dorm, but more like a gym. B___ R_____ does something stupid and injures his foot.  Then I realize he broke it, for the snapped part of one of the bones is sticking out of his foot.

I wake up.

I'm on the phone with Grandma W___. It's back in time, before I was born, and her voice is different from what I remember of it when she was in her 90s. She still has the same Hungarian accent, but her voice is lilting and fast. She thinks she's talking to "little Al" [even though technically in the dream I haven't been born yet!] but doesn't realize that I'm an adult and I've gone back in time.

I wake up, eat a yogurt and go back to sleep.

I'm looking at a computer screen -- I see someone's page from the dream journal website. I quickly scan through it, at a speed that's much faster than I can read in real life. They're all nonsensical words, though. There are two pages.

I wake up and have a little trouble falling back asleep. I finally get back into a dream. But I'm still in bed in the same position I fell asleep in.

I notice the location is different -- it's the classroom that was adjacent to the gym at the high school I went to many years ago. I move myself around very slowly, not wanting to wake up. I start to feel pretty confident that it's my astral body moving around and not my physical body. So I get out of bed, light as a feather, and walk right through a dresser and the wall to the outdoors.

I fly towards some stars. I notice new ones appear as I zoom closer. But I'm still only a few feet off the ground -- how could I be getting closer to the stars if I haven't left Earth? I realize that the dream is low cohesion. I try to remember what I wanted to do in a low cohesion dream, but I cannot recall it [I want to just be observant in a low cohesion dream, and not try to "fix" it].

I think that a lucid dream like this would be a good opportunity for some sexual adventures, but the second I think that I feel myself waking up. So I quickly dismiss the idea.

But now I'm back in the bed in the dark classroom. Quite a bit of time goes by just laying in this bed. I'm still wracking my brain trying to remember what I want to do in a low cohesion dream. My brother, B__, shows up and I try to talk to him. But he disappears suddenly.

There are other settings that I find myself in, including in a line of people in a chain-link fenced in area. The dream goes on for a good hour, but the main thing is that it remains very low cohesion. The fact that it is of such long duration I know almost guarantees that I won't be able to remember much after I wake up, but this doesn't bother me. After all, if the quality is low, why is it worth remembering anyway?

I wake up and instantly remember what I want to do in low-cohesion dreams -- "Go with the flow and observe and DON'T TRY TO FIX IT!"

    As this dream is occurring, I'm lucid and I realize that the cohesion, or visual quality is quite low...so I consciously am not really trying to remember the details, because I don't feel like these kind of dreams are that significant (but I could be wrong!).

    I'm with a bunch of high school kids. I am one myself, and my brother is there as one, too. The dream is about the tale of one of them turning bad and working for the wrong people -- but, again, I'm not paying that much attention to what's happening. I think we're in a school setting. The girls in the class get involved with the bad side, too.

    I try to get the girls, at least, away from doing the wrong thing; the boys are hopelessly caught up in it. The girls are dressed in formals like they would be for a senior prom in the 70s. We all go outside into the night.

    Suddenly, many nuclear bombs go off. I can see all of them exploding on the horizon -- they light up the night sky. The mushroom clouds are numerous. Still lucid, I decide I should try to face my fear of them. So I take off flying right towards them, pointing my hands in their direction and just zooming along.

    However, I can't seem to get close to them.

    (shift) We're now living in some post-nuclear world. The only trouble is, many people are working for the same bad people now that were in the earlier part of the dream. Me and a few others are still fighting them, using magic. The quality of the dream has deteriorated so badly by this point, though, that sets morph into other ones before a scene is even finished. I've kind of stopped paying attention to the dream, because it just seems all so sloppy.
