1st dream


had just been presented with a cluster of silver items encrusted with gems

was still taking in what it would mean to my lifestyle when a smiling face held out another handful of assorted silver jewellery for me to take and before i could appraise those someone else had entered the dream and was bringing even more items


2nd dream

two or three houses of the meagrest design with two or three impoverishedly-dressed people standing in the foreground


they were the picture of dejection


they were oriented to the fact that things weren't going to get better


i couldn't help but feel sorry for them


3rd dream


in a building that looked like a mall but was almost deserted


a boy of seven or eight was standing on his own looking for someone or something


he was obviously unsure of his surroundings; the environment he was in was just too big for him to grasp


he saw me as i was moving closer to him and his demeanour took on a resigned characteristic


he had no choice but to surrender to whatever reality it was i would present to him


i spoke as to him as i would to my own son and within a few exchanges of sentences he knew he was safe


i suggested he go to the cafeteria about thirty metres away and ask someone there


the dream ended as he was walking away with a gait of confidence
