I believe I am going to incorporate this dream of 1/28/11 into a short presentation I will be giving to my cohort next week at Pacifica. I have not worked with it very much at all as my dream life is fast and furious, along with much movement in my waking life, so I'm not going to decode it here, just to offer it up for any and all intuitive hits. I hope this is acceptable? I don't want to offer any backstory or pick it apart to any great length at this point in terms of what I toss out. What I am hoping is that you might have some intuitive hits of your own in the reading and would be willing to share them, along with any questions you would be asking yourself if it were your dream. I am looking for unfiltered, spontaneous associations it might generate in you.
I have two cassette tapes that are soundtracks to a movie. I want to give one away but the people I offer it to don't seem to want it. Apparently it sucks.
I see a woman that I think I know take a book to a man who is middle-aged and seated, surrounded by a few other men and a young boy. It's as if I am viewing it all in a rear view mirror. Somehow it is happening in the distance, and behind me?
The book is "How to Survive Cancer" or "How to Live With Cancer" or the like. She purchased it as a gift for him.
I see two very extraordinary cars/vehicles driving down the road. It's a narrow, flat, mountain road, much like the ones around here (Western NC). I am watching them drive away from me, but am close enough to observe them well.
They are Water Lilies! (or lotus flowers?) In some ways they resemble a Disney ride but are clearly road-worthy vehicles.
They have supple, green, pointed, triangular petals and coming up from the petals are softly colored, pastel candle sticks. (like the stamen are candles?) The shapes of the two vehicles were identical and very pretty.
I WANT ONE so badly. I must have a car like this.
They are being driven by the man with the cancer book and his family. They belong to them.
I talk to a woman close to me. We might be related? She tells me we have one of these vehicles but it is old and rusted, decaying. I'm not sure it can be repaired to that extent.
I am fixated on these cars and really, really want one of my own.
The men who own the cars are now seated again and I go over to them to talk about the cars. I decide to offer the cassette tape of songs from the movie to the young, adolescent boy with them. It is either the older man with cancer's son or grandson. I am not sure he wants it either. We discuss the tape a bit.
