Escapology

V1bHTRE2018 Flying/sailing to Bucharest and the Gigolo

 

I was in a sort of plane or boat, both flying and sailing, sometimes in water and sometimes in the sky- rather terrifying, but Bjork was on the plane so somehow it was okay. We ended up in Bucharest it was really hilly with lots of stairs everywhere (a city built from stairs with mountainous backdrop). My boyfriend was a gigolo and so I threw cream cakes at him and ran away. I ran and ran until I reached the pigeon museum, which was full of ladders (and pigeons). I wandered the streets aimlessly and a couple selling jewelry invited people in to their living room to talk about the woman's miscarriage and their IVF treatment. 

V1bECAT2013 We will when we come back

 

I was with a friend of mine, and what I saw was beautiful field, hills lots of plants and colours I can't really describe it. There were lots of people out on the hills and really enjoying each plant, looking at each plant and each flower. And then I suddenly realised I was behind glass, inside a glass tunnel on both sides. And suddenly I had the feeling that I really wanted to be there, which I told my friend. And he said- we will when we come back. 

V1bCTRE2018 Taking one's toilet for a walk 

 

I was desperately late for a rehearsal but you see I had to take my toilet and all my plants for a walk and the later it got the less I cared about being late for the rehearsal... 

V1bHOAT2018 Escaping marriage with graceful birds 

 

I was with a girl from uni at her birthday party, even though we are not really friends, i think we were in the SU bar. Then I was getting forced to get married and I had to stop the wedding from the alter, which mainly involved appealing to peoples emotions by singing 'amazing grace' and getting them to really listen to the meaning of the lyrics, and getting random people dressed as graceful birds to come in and try and convince the whole church not to make me get married. I didn't end up getting married, so it must have been a convincing argument.

V3bUPAM1994 Ball pit dinosaurs

 

I was in a labyrinth and a dinosaur was following me and there were lots of balls in the corridors like a ball pit. It was horrible- but so colourful- the walls were red and yellow and the balls were blue

V1hNTRE2018 Change the date

 

I had a dream that I had to change the date of the opening of the International Archive of Dreams as we were running out of time. I was so relieved when I woke up that we had and then I realised we hadn’t.

 

V1bHTRE2018 Smuggling and chocolate 

 

I had a dream that I was trying to smuggle people (maybe me?) through on flights. They had to always be in pairs and they had to do sort of rituals like attending chocolate exhibitions with real chocolate torsos and doing circle dances. My mother however burst out laughing and gave the game away. 

V1bHTRE2018 Apocalypse party

 

There was a new year's eve party/apocalypse. I had to help my brother to decide what suit to wear for the apocalypse  but he was being really indecisive. It was a rush to get there as I was distracted by vintage boutiques. My friend was suddenly a famous composer I saw his face on TV interviewed on the news and I felt so happy for him. I woke up- pushed my water bottle over- then back to sleep. Out with another friend in record shops she's suddenly in all the records but she never told me. I'm furious that she didn't tell me so I run away on my scooter which has a wind surf sail thing. Flew over the Thames (?) only to meet Jim Carrey and angry pub people on a grotty boat.

V1bHDEB2018 Glasshouse of evolution

 

It was a while ago and I was in a big… it was like a white house by the sea, on the edge of a cliff, and there were lots of different rooms, I was going through and then I realised there was this man outside who was in a Nazi uniform, and I realised he was coming towards me and he was going to kill me and he was my father. And so… I knew I had to get out of the house and I ran out of the house and down this high street with all these different shops on it and he was on the other side of the street. So I had to keep moving and I thought, I’ve got to go in somewhere to get out of his way. And I went into what looked like a large… greenhouse, with lots of people not just plants, and I went in, and then I realised all the way down this large greenhouse there were rows and rows of enormous, bigger than human-size weighing scales- so like an old fashioned scale were you have the weight on one side and a bowl on the other, these ones had a zebra in a large bowl on one side and in the little bowl on the other side, a half-zebra half-human, like a baby one. And then all the way down there was like a half-elephant half-human, half-horse half-human, half-panda half-human and I realise that this was a sort of glasshouse of evolution 

V1bHTRE2018 M&S game show

 

In Marks and Spencers, it was a game show, where we were being hunted by shop assistants and had to get around the shop without being seen. The dream then progressed to a rocky beach, a series of coaches from Inverness which was experienced through a birds eye map and an argument with a bus driver.

V1bN?? Lost characters

 

In my dream last night I lost the main character of my novel, and I thought I’d never find her again. When I woke up I was so worried that I had lost her forever that I felt compelled to start writing immediately. 

V3bU?2018 Video nightmare

 

I had a horror dream that I was trapped inside of a video game and I tried to get my other friends to help but they were all offline, so I was stuck in the dream! 

V7BMHEE2018 Vanishing courgettes

 

In the dream I looked down off my balcony and my courgette plants had disappeared! I had a panic “Oh my god, oh my god”. Then I woke up the next day and my courgette plants HAD actually disappeared!

V3bH2009TIM Jumping trains

 

I went to Los Angeles with my son to buy used garden machinery. We had to sleep rough and ended up first staying with Will Smith, and then later in an old train carriage that is parked in an abandoned warehouse (which later pulled away forcing me to jump out as ? was stood outside of the train. I though we had lost our cases but the driver had taken them out. In the cases were just a few dirty teeshirts - I remember being unsurprised but that as it was all the stuff I had brought. Also when I was staying with Will Smith he asked me where in LA I was going to go, I told him I was going to drive to a neighbourhood south of the town. He told me that I was crazy to try as I didn't know the roads and would get lost and that I should have studied the route long before now ( I remember think that I may end up in south central by mistake). Will took me for a drive at night in his car along a long curving freeway I remember him being very moody.

 

Later in the dream when I was driving around, I drove past two stores that I thought I recognised from ebay (a place selling novelty foam objects and a hardware store). While I was in the hardware store with my son I barged bast a group of 3 men who were in my way (though I don’t think there were doing anything wrong), deliberately stepping on the toes of one of them with my riggers boots (big heavy work boots). They got angry and went to confront my son who was stood in the corner of the store at this point. Seeing what was happening I went up to one of them and said ' it is his first time here, if you hurt him they will find your skin and blood all over the store'. Then we walked out and got in a Land Rover, I remember it was sunny and the trailer was attached.

 

I also remember that there some really interesting old industrial architecture and I wished I had my camera with me. One of these places that I saw in my dream, a solid industrial structure like an old parking garage covered in windows with small pains of glass, through which I could see the cab of an big old 18 wheeler. This was a place I would later stay in (where the old train carriage was).
