name of dream: finding the rowley's

 

 

was in a built-up area of the town in dream 2 to visit people i once lived close to

 

a woman i didn't know came out of the house i was about to knock the door of

 

i asked her: "do you know where people who used to live here have moved to ?"

 

she did; one bit of conversation led to another and she suggested we go indoors

 

the friendly and amiable woman said she had four children and during our talking, she asked what i did for a living

 

the words "an architect" came out without me having thought to say it beforehand

 

don't know what made me say it, it just came out

 

in the next scene her husband, a girl of five or six and boy in his mid-teens were in the room with us

 

the family were expecting another young man but he never showed in the dream

 

the husband asked me a question about architecture

 

it became embarrassing for everyone as it became clear i had no knowledge whatsoever of the job

 

the atmosphere became awkward and i wished i was somewhere else

 

amid my deepening discomfiture, the young girl kiss-pecked my cheek

 

it didn't make the situation go away but it broke the intensity of the moment in the dream and the dream ended moments later

name of dream: an uphill struggle

 

at the bottom of the road that goes from spon end to the large green where the fairs are, or used to be, held

was on what looked like a foldaway bike with two gears

 

in the first gear it would mean peddling like mad just to maintain enough momentum to keep the bike going without losing balance and in the second gear the rider would have to stand on the peddles and use both the body weight and muscles, again just to keep the bike going forward fast enough to avoid coming to stop

 

it didn't matter which method of peddling was used, and i swapped between the two styles for most of the dream, it was maximum effort

 

finally, and with a sense of accomplishment and great gratification, the bike got over the brow of the hill and a level expanse of bright greenery spread out invitingly before me
