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




time-tense: 4


qod 3.7




vividness: 3.6


the stand-out part of the dream: the words of the speaker


the significance of the stand-out part of the dream: the souls of all men contain goodness
