Wedding Gowns and Zombies

Last night I dreamed that I was young again. I was getting married! There was much ado and fuss about my wedding gown, I remember. And then we had the nuptials, which were not the nuptials of my memory but rather some sort of fanciful affair. My husband looked so young and strong, though! And handsome.

After we married, we left and went to a cabin by a lake for our honeymoon. The lake had an island in the middle of it. During the night, there was a massive shaking of earth and multiple explosions! The power went down by half; there were emergency lights on only. We couldn't get water from the well.

We found a battery-powered radio and it said the world was in chaos; there were zombies! I looked outside to see fire raining down from the sky. I saw something huge and red and realized that there was fire racing through the tree tops on the far side of the lake.

Embers flew through the air and landed on the island, which was only separated from the cabin by a small ankle-deep eddy, and I raced out in my wedding gown to cover burning embers with dirt. James grabbed a bucket and began drawing water from the lake to keep the flames from burning down the cabin.

And that's when I woke up.

It's an odd dream to have had on the morning we wake to find that a meteorite has terrorized a community in Russia, eh?

I suspect the wedding gown came from Valentine's Day, the zombies from a book I am reading. I hadn't thought much about the asteroid that is approaching earth today, but perhaps my subconscious registered it.

  2. What wonderfully bizarre imagery the mind weaves from the input (active or peripheral) we get throughout the day, eh? Fantastic stuff!

  3. Wow! I think you sensed it! I'm reading a great book right now, a self-help book called "Emotional Freedom" by Judith Orloff, M.D. Actually, I read it now and then. It's easy to put down and pick up. She promotes not only classic psychiatry, but spirituality and intuition. She takes dreams and intuition seriously. She's very open-minded yet practical. I like that. It's the whole ball of wax. There's so much we don't understand. You should read it.

    By the way, congratulations on giving the course! That's wonderful!

  4. That is quite the bizarre dream to have with an asteroid passing by Earth, and on the night before the meteorite hit Russia. I had aspects of Who Do, Voodoo? show up ina dream I had earlier this week, while I was reading that book, but couldn't really remember any of it upon waking.
