Dream Log

Night of 9-27-14

creekdontrise:

I had a dream about a girl who jumped ship from the boat she was working on and hid in a little seaside community somewhere in the north where the water was cold and the trees were dark. She lived there alone somewhere by the sea, perhaps in a cave, and waited. The boat she’d run away from was sure to find her one day.

Sometimes she would look out at sea and see the giant sailing ships, as big as skyscrapers, anchored way off shore where the clouds brushed against their sails and their booms swung like the arms of god over the sea.

She grew acquainted with the old men who owned the one grocery store in the town, coming in now and then but never for too long, never giving her name. She asked one of them to keep something she’d stolen from her old ship, a fishing cooler, one day when she knew they would come looking for her. She left a note there for the man she’d stolen it from. He would be angry anyway.

The day the boat came she watched it dock from the crowded boardwalk. The woman who piloted it used to be her friend, but she didn’t dare say hello. She didn’t want them to see her; if they did, they would chase her. Especially the captain man.

I don’t know why she’d leapt ship, but I think she’d seen something in the sea that she wasn’t supposed to, or that he was angry that she’d seen. It had changed her somehow. When he found the note she left he sent one of the grocers after her.

She was faster than him, and cleverer, but he was stronger and wiser and when she took to the cold water he outswam her. I don’t know whether he let her go or not, because I woke up!

What Lies Beneath the Surface  by Guy Sargent

These are the images of Guy Sargent. The “What lies beneath the surface” (What lies beneath the surface) series is a long series (we’re talking about almost a hundred images) inspired by the story européenne.La series begins on desert landscapes where presence of the human being is absent. Subsequently, we move on to building churches and cathedrals of medieval times, and images that reminds us of the two major wars eventually end up in the contemporary city with modern architecture. “What lies beneath the surface” is an ongoing project started in 2006, it is possible that the final form of the series is altered. Maybe pictures will be added or removed. This is a major project with a variety of images, atmospheres and topics that are worth that you mention.

Night of 9-24-14

I dreamed about a man who lived in the frozen north with his little sister, studying strange beings who lived below the ice. One of them was just a giant pair of hands, clear as water and invisible in the sea, that would come out of the cracks in the ice and kidnap people; sometimes they came back, most of the time they didn’t.

He had taken his sister with him to research out on the ice when the being emerged and took her underwater. He begged with them to take him instead, or at least along with her, because he couldn’t bear the guilt and she shouldn’t be alone. They obliged.

Deep deep in the sea they squeezed the air out of his lungs and replaced it with water, but he didn’t drown, was only cold deep in his bones. The dream ended with a searing split of light, impossible in the black abyss.

I had a dream the other night about a crow prince who had been estranged from his crow king father who lived in a castle, and had to go home after a lot of adventures to try and repair his relationship with his father. He brought his two companions, a stellar’s jay who was a brilliant strategist and a flying squirrel who could actually fly, but they were taken away to be locked in a separate room while the king met with his son

I think though that all the creatures could turn into people or take semi-human form though…like sometimes they WERE big crows and jays but sometimes they were people …it was interesting

Night of 9-11-14

Dreamed about a city by the ocean. It was very modern, borderline futuristic, but there were still magical forces at work (gods and creatures and forces of nature that people acknowledged as an intrinsic part of the world as much as phones and cars).
