name of dream: james smith the second

 

this dream is set in africa

 

an awake-time friend from a few years back is with me

 

we are standing at the top of an open-cast mine

 

the mine was shaped like a shuttle-cock and was tiered

 

the tiers had been made into standing and sitting areas

 

it could accommodate four or five-hundred-thousand people

 

there was music playing but whoever had set up the p.a. hadn't done his homework and the music sounded like it was coming from a pocket-sized transistor radio or a mobile phone

 

i said to my friend "we could get this place humming with a bit more organisation" but he wasn't the slightest bit interested; i knew why

 

the music stopped and a voice came through the speakers

 

it was an essay or a soliloquy and was composed by a man and it was introduced as a song by james smith the second, he was an african man

 

it began... "words are the second most important means of communication we have; language is the first..."

 

it was meaningful and captivating and i tried to think-read it so i would remember it but it was too diifficult, besides it was satisfying to listen to it

 

it had made its way into my psyche
