Recurring Dream

I’m not a vivid dreamer. If I dream, I mostly don’t remember. The closest thing to a recurring dream I have is a repeating setting. I had this dream again last night. The setting has been visiting my sleep for more years than I can remember. In this dream, I am in a tunnel. It can be man-made or a geological cave-like tunnel. It may also have parts that are wooden or structural. I am crawling through the tunnel – at times by myself, sometimes with others. I’m going somewhere. There is definitely a destination though that is never made clear in the dreamscape. And I never reach the destination. The dream is about the journey. I am crawling along through sludge. Digging my nails along rocky walls. Digging through collapsed dirt. I am not sure what this dream means or why it visits me repeatedly. I know why it came last night. Whenever I see something which ignites the memories where I store this dream, it comes alive again. We recently watched the scene in Game of Thrones where John Snow and Daenerys are in the Cave of the First Men. When those two were traveling down the narrow underground tunnels, my dream brain twitched.

Hot Eclipse

We visited friends in South Carolina to see the total eclipse. Less then forty-eight hours later, we were on the road again camping in the wilderness with no wifi or cellular connectivity. I never took a moment to pause and say a few words about this once (twice?) in a lifetime celestial event. South Carolina was partly cloudy that day, so we didn’t get the full Wyoming, crystal clear, and blazing eclipse. In our location, the clouds moved in-and-out passing over the sun throughout the experience. It was still amazing and moving. We were in a large downtown public square filled with thousands of people. I think the crowd of onlookers added to the excitement. I was most surprised by the suddenness of the darkness. The eclipse did not make the daylight slowly fade away. It was bright and daylight-like right up to the totality. And then the sun just turned off. For two minutes or so the light was gone. The air and light immediately changed. The temperature dropped, the street lights flicked on, and the mosquitoes came out. I don’t know where those pesky nuisances were hiding! The energy from the crowd was electric. One of our friends spontaneously proposed marriage to his boyfriend during the totality. There were tears and hugs. For a moment, the awesomeness of the universe took center stage. It was a thrilling experience.

After the eclipse finished, we walked to PeacePie for ice cream sandwiches. If the words “ice cream sandwich” makes you think of boring cardboard crap you can buy in a grocery store, you need to click the link and get a load of the pictures. Charleston was two weeks ago, and I’m still thinking about those ice cream treats. They were so good that we went twice.
