i had the most bizarre dream a few nights ago! unfortunately upon waking my memory of it has been scrambled, so i remember chunks, but not what order these chunks go in. if they have an order... i think they go in circles too.|
there was meeting merlin again for the first time. except he was 13 feet tall and really thin, long arms and legs. but he gave me a big friendly hug and we sat down to catch up.
and there was this man who showed me pictures and memories of a long since dead love, and i went back in time to see back when they were together.
and there were these strange glowy drinks that you could order that had sparks and firefly-ish lights bubbling out of it and changed colors, and if you drank it you would see the other side/trip. these drinks were called "spirits" and they were living things.
there were two children (a boy and a girl) who were predestined to be together and they were considered sacred by the rest of the village/tribe. they were playing one day, running down this path which ended suddenly at a cliff, but the children didn't know this and ran off the side of it, falling to their death thousands of feet below. the tribe was devastated. they sent people down the the bottom of the cliff the retrieve the bodies and discovered that the children had landed in a tree. but not just any tree. a magic tree (i'm serious!) which somehow brought them back to life, and there was broken glass everywhere... and wild pigs.
and there was the gypsy woman with all her little trinkets.
i was walking down the street and came across a house that was neither inside nor outside, and peering over the gate at me was a very strange man. he was tall and thin and dark, wearing a dusty old suit and a top hat. he was the "teacher". he greeted me with a mischievous smile and told me he had been waiting 10 years for me, then challenged me to a rousing game of chess. i was his apprentice now.
then i was swimming in this beautiful, clear, blue river/canal with water lilies and big colorful lazy fish. i had a friend with me sitting on the edge dangling his/her feet in the water. and then i started shedding skin. and then i drowned, but after i was done drowning i came back up out of the water. and as i climbed out of the river time started speeding up.
the "teacher" and i went to a small dusty bar and had pizza and "spirits". but the spirits' trip caused me to flashback through the dream, faster and faster ans then this loudspeaker voice came out of nowhere saying: "warning! warning! do not try this again! do not try this again!"
...and then i woke up and found myself flat on my back with my arms crossed across my chest (i always sleep on my side), and the "warning" was still ringing in my ears.
