name of dream: lion being shot

 

in africa

 

from where i was looking i could see two hedgerows about two metres high separated by seven or eight metres of grass

 

the hedgerows stretched away into the distance as far as the eye could see

 

about sixty metres away and between the hedgerow, there was a brown african bull resting on the ground with its legs folded underneath it

 

a lion came into the scene about twenty-five metres away from where i was and was walking in a very casual manner toward the bull

 

i pointed at it and said "lion"

 

a man with a rifle appeared to my right, took aim and fired a shot

 

the lion, still moving casually, turned its head, looked at its hindquarters, and then started walking towards us

 

i had a moment of panic as it looked as if the lion was coming to get us

 

after a couple of steps in our direction the lion changed direction again and carried on walking the way, and in the same manner, it had been walking before being shot

 

the lion took another three or four steps and then slumped to the ground

 

the way it fell to the ground told me it was dead

notes 1

 

a lion that has been fatally wounded doesn't react casually after being shot

 

perhaps it was in greater pain before it was shot

 

perhaps it was at the end of its life and was about to die anyway

 

perhaps...

 

second dream

 

name of dream: x dream - reunited (my ref. b)

 

a friend of mine took me to the house of a friend of his

 

unbeknown to him, or me, the partner of his friend was an awake-time girlfriend of mine from some years before

 

i never spoke to her during the time my friend was there

 

when the person who had brought me got up to leave i followed him to the door and said "i'll catch up with you later" and turned and went back into the living room

 

it was obvious to me she wasn't satisfied with the relationship she was in and i needed to find out if the looks she had been giving me meant what i thought they meant

 

they did, and within seconds of dream time we were undressed and conjoined

 

about fifty seconds of dream-time later the sound of the back door opening caused us to separate

 

i headed upstairs for the toilet

 

two or three steps up the stairs i knew i had to go back and get my clothes

 

had gathered the clothes and was going back up the stairs when the dream ended

notes 1

 

the ex-girlfriend and me had been separated by circumstances beyond the control of either of us (i'll tell you about it sometime)

 

at the time we spilt-up our relationship was very much an ongoing one

 

we suited each other down to the ground

 

she was the only girlfriend i ever had who had a sense of humour

 

she didn't make me laugh out loud but her sense of humour regularly brought a prolonged smile to my face and as is the case with smiles they produce Endorphins

 

she used to enjoy me "ribbing" her, which i did routinely

 

we only ever said "no" to each other once

 

the time she said no to me it really rattled me and although i tried to hide it she knew she had "got" to me

 

within a day or two, i got the chance to give her a tatse of her own medicine

 

it was a night in at my place

 

films, music, food, marijuana... by an open fire

 

i felt bad about it but it had to be done

 

she had gone out of her way to make herself look appealing on the night... clothes, just the right amount of make-up and she was in "that" frame of mind with "that" look in her eyes

 

the look on her face when i said "no" affected her more deeply than expected and i nearly buckled

 

it had the desired effect though, neither of us said no again

 

notes 2

 

it is agreed that it is the woman's prerogative to say no, however; when a woman says no she has to live with that decision

 

a male isn't obliged to accept an invitation of "yes" after the female has said "no"

 

notes 3

 

very few people understand the writer's position with regard to gender

 

of mammal-man-shaped beings, it is only he who can be either gender in any point of time throughout the course of evolution

 

that he manifests as a male is due to the fact that males are, generally speaking, bringing up the rear in terms of evolution

 

it is the writer's "lot" that, of mammal-man, he is always "bringing up the rear"

 

as we edge toward Transmutation his feminine traits will emerge and he will become a "her" again

 

it is slowly coming to be realised that women are ahead of their male counterparts where it matters most... the disposition to love

 

notes 4

 

there was just one time in my life when i said "no" first

 

it was at a community centre for teens

 

a girl a sent her friend to tell me she wanted to go with me

 

i looked over to where she was

 

i know a "wrong'un" when i see one

 

i shook my head

 

the girl who sent her mate over to me made a gesture and said "f... off then"

 

what do you think ladies ?

 

was my judgement right ?

 

was my "no" justified ?
