Fire Dream

30 Jul



I dreamed, not this last night, I haven’t slept. But the previous night, or actually morning. I was with all these people and it was burning around, we were trapped.

There were a few buildings with supplies and we were told not to take them from one, because it was owned by a nonprofit.

There was a lot of paper. Meanwhile there were people making food and offering dirty used napkins.

The other building was not guarded. There was a box with knives and a gun. The knives weren’t very good. The gun appeared to be fake. I found a pair of binoculars and took them, and finally I found I knife I actually own, a well-made knife. I also found a book about bee keeping and took that.

This is a very different dream for me. Usually I am hiking around and getting out and coming back. Usually it was all about my ability to physically escape. This dream was very different. I think this is the start of a new series.

Nobody gets it, everything is on fire. I am looking for what might be useful. The binoculars. Paper. At one point I have some raw parsnips and I offer them to someone who is roasting other root vegetables, in trade. So I can have some roasted roots to eat.

And the knives, much of the dream is about the knives, what bad knives they are. I keep searching through them, people make comments about them, but I don’t find a good one until the end of the dream, and it’s a knife I own in the waking world. And it is a good knife, I respect that knife. That’s the knife in the images here.

    Yes, the world is on fire and nobody seems to feel any urgency about it. People are treating me like I’m crazy for noticing. (Yes, I have problems with my brain, but this is not one of them.)

    A few people are noticing a little bit is off, but nobody is looking at the fire itself.

      The Himalayas were burning awhile back.

      We’re starting back into drought here. I expect 2017 to be a bad fire year for New Mexico.

      A lot of places that have trees aren’t going to anymore. We are witnessing a massive change in natural communities.
