The sun is so dazzlingly bright today that it's almost unbearable... so beautiful that it's almost surreal. Helping that feeling is the fact that it's glinting off the icicles and refracting into rainbows on my cabin walls. All this follows the intensely bizarre night of dreams that I had; dreams that were utterly outlandish, but felt entirely real - real enough that I kept waking up thinking, "Oh, so I'm still in my cabin after all...." So this is kind of turning into a lost day for me. Lost in that I can't seem to gather my senses and parlay them into something workable; into a creative flux rather than a contemplative one. C'est la vie. Not like I don't have a ton of laundry to do, and how much imagination does that really take, eh?
For the past week, in many of my dreams, I keep seeing the same woman. I've never seen her before and I have no idea who she is. We haven't spoken yet, but she keeps appearing. She doesn't seem very nice - the first time she showed up she walked by, yanked my hair, and kept walking. The second time she simply stood about 15 feet away from me and glared. She's shown up about 3 other times now, each time giving me a less than congenial, ineffable look. The feeling (on my part) is always one of curious bafflement; a feeling of "what did I ever do to you?!" But I have no idea who this mean-spirited oracle is or what she wants from me. She's not ugly, nor particularly pretty. I would guess her age to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 to 60 years old. She stands about 5'4", slight build, has her short blond hair cut in a boyish style, green eyes, and always wears dangly earrings. Typically she's wearing jeans and a jean jacket. If you've seen this woman, tell me who she is! Better yet, ask her what she wants!
