Let the Fucked Up Dreams Begin!

Postby Zhust » Thu Aug 09, 2012 5:58 am

There are three ways I know I'm really close to something exciting: I daydream about extreme experiences (both wonderfully amazing and insurmountably crushing), I think that I'm dying, I have the most fucked up dreams at night.

As my friend often says, the only difference between fear and excitement is attitude. There is no physiological difference between being on an amusement park ride and spinning out of control in a car on the highway (until you stop). So when expectation gets involved, it migrates to its bright and dark corners.

Relatedly, death is change. Well, life is change too, but death is concentrated change. So whenever I'm in a situation where I have no idea how it's going to turn out, I get a nagging feeling that the end of my life is near. If I can't see past a certain date, I figure that must be my last.

And then the dreams. Oy! There was one with something about none of my lights working. Then something about walking in toting a big cart full of all my stuff and it keeps falling off; meanwhile, everyone else is going the other way talking about how great it was. Or the one where I'm gone for three weeks and had forgot to close the front door.

That's how I know it's getting real.

BUT....the daydreams are getting intennnnse!!!!! Music is on heightened awareness now. The years are reeling in and ready to give way to new memories!!!!

Yeah, that too. "Do you really need it that loud in your car?" becomes "I bet I'll hear something like that at Burning Man."

One more thing: I'm aware of the phase of the moon. I have a thing about counting down the full moons until Burning Man.

The only reason I logged on to the eplaya just now is because I was telling a coworker about my inability to sleep well last night because of FUCKED UP BURNING MAN DREAMS, and I probably used those words verbatim.

I dreamed that I woke up and it was time for Exodus... The city was gone, and I realized I couldn't remember a single moment of it. I was devastated. Hasn't been that bad since just before my second burn, in 2005.

Without getting too weird, I've had friends murdered or killed in a plane crash this summer and this morning I found myself wondering why my dream-psyche gives a shit, out of all things, about Burning Man.

The result of Burning-Man-is-Over-and-You-Did-It-Wrong dreams is that you get a heavy dose of Exodus depression and you're not even there yet, but, the flip side is waking up and at least being relieved that it was just a dream.

While I have the attention of the echo chamber ...

I had a good one last night. I had a lot of coffee late before I went to bed. I had a dream that I stayed up all night, noting how I should have got some sleep as the eastern horizon started to shed light before dawn.

Ok, ok... so last night, I had a dream that I am travelling with my parents to some place that's 8 hours away.
I have four burning man tickets, including two for my parents.
We leave to come back home but I forget my tickets back at our vacation spot. And I have only 24 hours before burning man! That means I have to make 16 hours of travel again to go get my ticket or I could decide not to go. I am trying to find people who can ship my tickets to me and all that. And in my dream, I am trying to make decisions.
Gosh, I hate logical dreams!

The playa in my dreams always has trees in it, for some reason. Also, naked people. WEIRD!

Whenever I doze off with the tv on, if the Mighty Boosh show comes on it triggers a playa dream.

In it I am in a very surrealistic camp at the burn and watching tv there. In the dreams the tv is showing scenes from a BM camp with lots of wackiness.

Generally very short, but vivid dreams. Last time it happenned, I actually woke up looked at the tv and thought it was actually happening them went right back to sleep.

I usually have freaky dreams like this when I drink a lot of coffee or just before bed! Cheese doesn't seem to do it for me though.

Bwahahahahaha I woke my dear husband at 3:45 am today yelling "Fuck off, you bastard!" and when he woke me I had no idea WTF but I could still feel the dust.

Just FYI I have never hollered like that at anybody in BRC so seriously I have no clue...

I just had a dream that I was trying to sell a ticket I didn't need at an airport, and trying to convince someone else not to sell theirs above cost.

Seems quite reasonable to me, BBadg, go for it. Live the dream. 8)

My Burning man dreams are in a hilly landscape, where I'm on the outskirts and can't find where anybody is camped. there's no straight line of sight, just meandering dirt roads through the hillocks.

I know all too well about all the messed up dreams after burning man. Sometimes I feel I get more dreams about it during the winter months following a burning man event than the actual period itself. It's funny how dreams have a weird way of changing depending on the season. I've definitely had some real crazy and messed up dreams, but I learned to enjoy them as part of my subconscious expression.
