Yesterday I had these dreams.
The first one featured my mum. She and my dad and I were sitting in a living room, the two of them on the couch. We were all chatting and at one point I realized that, Hey! Mum is back! And her brain is working perfectly! After that, once it became apparent that I was dreaming, the dream ended. I can’t remember what we were talking about, unfortunately.
In the second dream, I was in some kind of tricky situation where I needed to escape from someone. I don’t remember that part of the dream. It was out in the country, in a rural upland. There were poorly developed roads – maybe dirt, maybe gravel – with trees and shrubs growing right up to the roadway. I was driving a sedan. It was summer and I had the window open. I crested a slight rise and looked out over a wide valley. What I didn’t realize was that the road turned sharply to the left, but I didn’t. The car went soaring through the air and nosedived into a lake. The water was very green. As the car was flying through the air I saw what was happening and many thoughts flashed through my head about how to survive the situation. I couldn’t remember if the window should be up or down. I took a deep breath.
The car hit the water and plummeted like a stone, like a steel coffin. I freed myself from behind the wheel and struggled my way out of the window. There were bubbles everywhere. Green water and bubbles. I kicked my way to the surface of the water. As I came up for air, I saw that I was not far from the shore. I swam a few strokes and found myself standing on an underwater ledge. I looked back at the car and saw that it was now on the ledge as well. My thought was, ‘at least it won’t be too hard to get it out of there.’
That’s all I remember. A strange night's sleep, for sure.
