There's This Cityscape In My Dreams?I keep revisiting this place in my dreams, or rather, I guess 'dreaming about it' is the less mystical way to put it.
It's this promenade, I guess you'd call it--kind of modern, metropolitan, brick pavement, tables with umbrellas for eating restaurant food. There's an ATM, a Burger King, a Wendy's. I know, that sounds pretty mundane. A walk away there's some kind of college--the layout of the place changes slightly every time I have a dream about this place.
There's a small town a short drive away. Brick-walled buildings, it's built on a hill by a lakeside, there's brick steps for walking up from a boardwalk.
The weird thing is there's a zombie infestation there--I know, that's like throwing a grenade into an otherwise, completely believable real-world scene--which is how I know it's a dream. It's not like say, apocalypse-style, like anything you'd see in thriller movies these days--more like the town is fighting some kind of haunting or infestation, and normal life continues as best it can in spite of the danger and the spookiness. Last night I dreamed of this big town house.. almost a bureau or warehouse in size. Kind of a European flair, like something you'd expect Ebeneezer Scrooge to own.
It was really run-down, missing walls with exposed boarding, lots of crates and stuff stored haphazardly on a large floorspace; people were trying to rehabilitate it into a place that was livable, because the size of the population was such that they needed safe places to stay off the streets. Things seemed to be getting a bit desperate.
When I dream of this place, I know I'm dreaming it, and I know I've been there before. And yet, when I wake up, I wonder if it's just my mind playing tricks, and maybe it's a new dream after all, and I'm just projecting having had it before.
But it's happened many, many times now. For years. I'm sure of it. I wonder what makes my mind put together a place like this?
Sometimes I meet people there that are familiar. My grandfather, once. Still alive mind, so it's not like, say, the plot of Fatal fr
Anyhow, I figure this'll provide some entertainment for some bored schmuck, and it was kind of entertaining to relate, so I won't feel too betrayed when this site puts it out for people to see.
