I1bHTRE2018 Felt like small fireworks

Set a night. Perhaps sort of China Town or a pagoda, different levels... lots of sleeping bags. Partly involved climbing. Played some kora too but might have been sitting on stones on beach. There were I think cables everywhere. There was an activity- perhaps jumping, somehow with little LEDS. It felt like small fireworks.


I2bNTRE2018 Lucid worlds


I had a dream that we were trying to lucid dream together: so I dreamt that we were discussing it and then we fell asleep inside the dream and went into another dream where we were canoeing up hill! Meanwhile throughout I was aware that everything was a dream, so I was lucid myself.


I8bUTRE2000 Swinging in tunnels


This is a recurring dream that I had as a child. I am sitting on a swing (swinging) in a black tunnel with a small house beside me made up of primary colours- it is perhaps smaller that me myself. Then suddenly there is an unbearable roar down the tunnel, I don’t just hear it but feel it like a breeze like the rush of a train coming past except there is no train. And then I wake up. 

I1bUITA2018 A goodbye to childhood


This is a demarcating dream that I had a bout 2 weeks ago. I was riding a train and at each stop I witnessed a conceptual hole: an essence of childhood, a nucleus of childhood and harmony which I was connected to, a memory that I had experienced at some point. At the last stop I reached I realised that I could no longer have that anymore and I woke up crying intensely. It was like going down memory lane- very abstract.

I6bHITA2018 Climbing holes


I am in a very dark tall hole in the ground. There is a sort of grey mist all around. There is a sort of rock climbing facility (I do rock climbing) on the walls. As I climb I feel that someone is coming. I have this feeling all throughout the dream It's very unnerving and frightening, so much so that I wake up (or at least I think I'm awake) and I see my friend come into the room and stand by the window looking down at me...

I1bUGUL2018 Demonstration of something 


I was trying to organise a demonstration of something, I can't remember what exactly. It required many strange objects and tools. The most important things I needed were jam jars, but I also needed a circular saw and a marrow. These last two were a problem as I wasn't allowed onto the location with them. The other problem was that the location didn't have a floor, which didn't mean I fell it just made it difficult to concentrate with the blank whiteness beneath my feet. I thought the solution would be to break the marrow, but I instantly regretted doing this. It was all very stressful and I was glad to wake up before the demonstration began.

I1bECAT2014 The End 1.


I'm on the coast, it's summer and I can feel a warm breeze coming from the sea. I'm by myself sitting on the grass looking out to the open sea. Lots of other people sit all over the coast. Everyone sits quietly looking at the sea. But we all know what we are waiting for. It's the end. We're waiting for the big wave to come. Yet no one is scared, we just sit there are wait.

I1bCCAT2014 The End 2.


I'm at the second floor in an old house. There's no furniture and the timber floor makes noises when I step on it. The rooms are large and have high ceilings. There are lots of people around in each room, yet it's really quiet- no one is speaking everyone stands and waits calmly. I feel the same. I take a few steps towards the window which is large and open. The sky is cloudy but it's not raining yet/ Stone paved streets are empty but I see other people at windows. We are all calm, waiting for the earthquake to start. We all know everything is going to fall.

I6bHULY2018 Pointless to go back 


Basically, first I was in Berlin and it was very different Berlin, it looked like the Vatican, with gothic churches. It was very cold but very sunny like the weather of a couple of days ago and I was walking around the city. And then I kind of have this dream inside my dream where I am in Peru with my dad riding bicycles, with my dog. It is summer. Suddenly I hear a voice say: “It’s pointless to go back” and then I wake up. 

I1bUCAT2018 Cable car horizon


I dream about a beautiful place, a city, I was driving through it, what a beautiful place and what a good city to drive in, lots of hills and meeting people on the way. And then I went to see the sun set, the horizon was like a cable car, like a flee, it was jumping for the tourists. And you asked me how it did it and I came up with a theory. Then it was winter, it was so beautiful and I started seeing a lot of people I know and everyone was talking in poetry.

I1tHTRE2018 Moving house vs. ice-cream


I was moving house but had to eat ice-cream at the same time. Lots of awkward people and coat hangers on the tube. Some point I was asked to watch a musical but I only stayed for 5 minutes as I was running out of time.



I’d have this nightmare about not being able to turn off the TV…



Making Risotto for cricket club tea, but only made enough for 1 team. Very stressful!

I9bHNOD2018 Irritated dwarf in another universe


I floated up from my body and started to go through the wall. I got stuck and thought I’d wake up. Instead I ‘teleported’ into another world. Tired, undulating wave apartments of solid sandstone. As I focused they appeared more cartoon-like. There were no people, no roads, no cars- only canals. I ‘teleported’ again into an apartment high up. I called for a dream character and a dwarf approached, looking irritated. He asked what girl I chose to get there. Me: ??? Him: did you see a virus warning? Me: ??? Him: ! You need to be careful going into the ‘gaps’, sometimes it’s a trap! Then I woke up…

I7bCNOD2012 It looked like snow in Atlanta


I dreamt I turned the corner and it snowed. There was a queue and a Chinese restaurant with a slanted entrance. A few days later, on my way to my friend’s place, I called and asked if she wants me to bring food. She told me to turn the corner and get Chinese. I saw the EXACT place from my dream (I’ve never been to Atlanta before). There was no snow (it was September) but, just as I turned the corner, a bus sped past and bits of paper from a box behind it flew in the air. It looked like snow…

I1bHTRE2018 Parkouring with diamond nipples


I feel I’m at some sort of camp waiting for my parents. A lot has happened by this point in the dream but can’t remember it. Somehow I’m wearing football boots and there’s this guy I’m determined to tell him I’m a footballer. I look at the map and we are in Algeria but it’s Switzerland and I’m trying to work out why there is a river called China and then I look closer and they all have one called china. Parkour/teleport over to parkour academy outside the steps there are a load of annoying weirdos from my past. Then looking at instructions on how to sail I don’t know about sailing but I create these really detailed intricate parts in my head. Then cat is sticking diamante stickers on my nipples.

IbHALB2018 Avocado boat

I was a passenger on a little train with wheels driving along the road in the countryside. It's destination was the sea in the Czech Republic. My seat neighbour was on the wrong train and got off just before the German/Czech border. 

When we arrived at the coast, we saw a beautiful mundane seaside resort town in Mediterranean style quite like Monte Carlo or Nice. We had to get off the train and enter town via little boats, all connected by a long rope, each fitting just one person and looking like half an avocado where the passenger sits in the space of the seed.

When everyone had arrived at the promenade, I heard that there was a famous violin maker in town, but I woke up before I could see the violins.

I1bNGRE2018 Finish to start


The dream is from start to finish but when I wake up I know very clearly that the logic of the dream was from finish to start. I’m very aware that though I’m going forward in time in the dream the causation is going backwards. Whatever happened at the end of the dream caused me to say something at the start of the dream, which triggered the next event. It bounces back and forth in time. The dream events aren’t ordered but when I remember the whole thing my brain reorders them. I’ve had that feeling a lot of time in the dream. 

I1bHTRE2018 A tangle of threads


Different elements of dream, can’t remember what happened when:

(in no particular order)

-There was a textbook about a couple, the woman fell out the sky and this strengthened the love of their relationship

-There was a ship I was commuting on, but it had no lights and my dad was worried about me because if I fell off ship at night they wouldn’t be able to see me 

-Worked/was a slave in a fabric shop cutting red velvet

-Went on a walk up a rock path (waterfall?) with distant family members. Started joking about suicide, everyone went quiet and I realised that perhaps ? tried it.

-Canteen at the airport, which you had to go through and eat- but it was free (a bit like going through security)

-Brother got job as wedding and funeral planner, mum was convinced this was the right job for him.


I1bHTRE2018 Easter birthday lecture with bazuki

Part 1: Building tents/structures some guy built plane called Griselda or something it was competitive.

Part 2: It was my birthday and had organised a party but no-one really came. I started to faint and an ambulance came but then I went down to the cliffs and same that lots were there but were already canoeing on the sea. Blissful. Then we canoed into this museum/classroom and attended a lecture thing on ethnomusicology with dreams by a lady who said that people were scared of “academic colours” which made total sense. Back home, climbing through a tiny window door and up into the high street. Tried to play a giant giant bazooka (mandolin thing) and I think a cow horn at a wonderful shop. Then the party turned to Easter and my friend Fiona gave out a lucky dip of chocolates. Everyone got good ones but I got a rubbish chocolate BUT I got hundreds of pounds, because I provided food last time we met. I still remember all the kinds of chocolates (chocolate lolly, maltesers etc)

13bNDAV? Mustard mayhem 


Often have terrible nightmares about savoury food not sure why. Once I was drowning in a sea of mustard then woke up in a cold sweat and went for a hot salt beef bagel with extra mustard. 



Two punks with multicoloured hair in leather jackets on the street-



Leave all the baggage behind. 

I1bNMIC2018 Butter Role


I had a very detailed dream last night about making a cheese and tomato baguette and the role of butter in that sandwich. It was such a mundane and tasty dream. 

I1bU?? Always late for school


Arriving at school really late in the year, so I am the only one who doesn’t know what’s going on. I have this dream a few times a year!



I dreamed that I could go to an ice castle. 

I1bNGRE2018 Wake up laughing


These were some kind of lucid dreaming dreams which repeated:

I woke up laughing, because in the dream you realised that it was so absurd and funny what you dreamt. With a big smile you then sleep in again, trying to steer the dream in another direction. 

I3bMJUA2018 Strange parading creatures


I saw strange creatures paraded. They were doing a sort of ritual. They passed by my window. It was night-time- dark. No moonlight. But I remember stars. I was very scared. But I don’t remember the end. 

I3bHJAM2000 Welcome to Salmon Land


My dad picked me up from school in a fast convertible car. He drove home at an extremely fast speed, until I fell out of the car, flying over a fence into someone’s garden. It was an intensely dull garden, with only a plain grass lawn surrounded by plain wooden fences. In the centre of the lawn was a tall man dressed in ceremonial purple robes, from the ‘Stonecutters’ episode of the Simpsons. He incanted: 


I1bUTRE2018 Masked dance


Selling masks rather than tickets to a posh ball, which turns out to be full of Balinese masked dancers. 

I1bMEDG2016 Network of lights


I was in the bathroom looking out the window: The sky was an incredible-awe-inspiring network of lights. It was like looking out of a plane at night, you know, when you see the city lights and the traffic snaking? But I was looking UP into the sky rather than down from it. It stretched out as far as the eye could see, three dimensionally in all directions. It was a bit like an illuminated map. I woke up with a sense of awe and wonder. 


I1bETRE2018 Fat figurines


Little red figurines with fat faces which were somehow precious or made by a famous artist which I had to move across a space a bit like playing chess with myself but there tsunamis and crazy earthquakes kept coming making it impossible to do so. 



I dreamt of the pizza we left at the museum. 

I1bMHOL2018 Worm on the wall


Last night I woke up in a strange room and didn’t know where I was. For a nearly a minute I didn’t know who or what or where. I’m not sure it was a dream but it was dark… There was a painting of a worm on the wall

I1bHTRE2018 Hipster whirlpool bus


Abstract but there was definitely:


A whirlpool I was sucked into

A tiny Romanian village full of hipster cafe

A bus, on which the bus driver wouldn’t except my cash as it was illustrated

A horrible new years party which I left before new years

I1bHTRE2018 Anchor exhibit 


I was taking anchors out of the sea and displaying them by a wall- some of them were frozen. Then went down into the tube. At the bottom of the escalators were sofas, with people lounging around. There was a moment in mum’s car where the hand break broke. A moment of swimming in freezing water too and then going to a charity shop to find clothes, with lots of Polish women. 



When I need to sort things out I dream that my house has more rooms than it does. 



I’m balancing a snooker table on my head.



A huge lawn mower ploughs over daisies.

I1bHTRE2018 Accordion Orchestra


At a hotel, where we could switch on the moon. Lots of swimming pools. In the charity shop I bought an accordion orchestra. It was lots of different accordions of different shapes and forms, packed inside a long box with a painted whale. 


I1bVFY2018 Equations


I was in a classroom like an auditorium with many other people. We were in a rush to do some counting of certain object i can't remember. A counting system similar to my real life job at Amazon. The instructor or boss was my first previous boss, who was a female. She instructed us to do it as fast a possible and get reward for being the fastest. I did receive a certain prize, which i can't remember what really was. After receiving the prize, the left over prize was distribute to the other. As I turn my head, to the right, to follow the prize being pass out to other people, I turn back to pay attention to my boss. She wasn't there but there was another person who was a man. I assumed the person is a new instructor. About the same time, the whole scene change a bite into a normal classroom with a normal chalkboard. The instructor wrong math equations on the board. As I was paying attention to the instructor, the equations kept changing. He was speaking but I could not hear much, only sounded like mumbling. On the chalkboard the writing on it changed a few times to different equations and drawing. I only remember 2 drawing with equations next or on them. First one was a counter-clockwise spiral shape. Following the end of it, there were writing and math equations, which i can't remember. Next appearance was an egg shape drawing. There were two lines going horizontal and vertical across inside the shape. On those line there were equations and numbers. Math was my strong subject in school but was not a total nerd of it. These equations I haven't never seen them before. Before I woke up, I heard the teacher mentioning Albert Einstein joking.



Parties where we only received half presents- I got half a clock.
