Seeing Someone Wear The Brown Rectangle Glasses #2020015

I woke up remembering some dreams but did not record them before going back to sleep several times, and so now I barely remember one part at the very end of my last dream.

This dream was inspired by me looking at glasses (eyeglasses) at the Zenni Optical website before going to bed, I am currently down to two universal bridge fit glasses frames to choose from, and once I make my decision I need to decide whether to get transition lenses (photochromic lenses) for them or not.

(Anyone reading this please feel free to share your opinion on:

Which glasses frame you think that I should get?

And whether I should get transition lenses for them or not?).

Black Square Glasses #2019321

Brown Rectangle Glasses #2020015

My memory is too unclear, but in the dream I was possibly looking at glasses online at probably the Zenni Optical website.

In another part of the dream world there was a man who reminded me of an overweight everyday man version of the character Luis Fernando Lopez from the video game expansion pack Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony who was also looking at glasses, and there was possibly a woman and man with light-color skin in another part of the dream who knew this man who were also possibly looking at glasses.

At some point the two men and the woman met up somewhere, and I happened to be walking by them.

The man who looked like Luis was wearing what looked like the Brown Rectangle Glasses #2020015, I have not been able to find any pictures of someone wearing them, and so this was my chance to see them in real life until my test pair arrive by mail so I probably stopped to ask them if I could see the glasses.

I can not remember but I think that they let me see them and we possibly talked about glasses at the Zenni Optical website and glasses that we had and have et cetera, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,

There Is In Each Of Us An Ancient Force That Takes And An Ancient Force That Gives

Today’s quote is a quote from Wikiquote from the 1965 book Dune by Frank Herbert:

There is in each of us an ancient force that takes and an ancient force that gives.

A man finds little difficulty facing that place within himself where the taking force dwells, but it’s almost impossible for him to see into the giving force without changing into something other than man.

For a woman, the situation is reversed. …

These things are so ancient within us that they’re ground into each separate cell of our bodies.

We’re shaped by such forces.

You can say to yourself, ‘Yes, I see how such a thing may be.’ But when you look inward and confront the raw force of your own life unshielded, you see your peril.

You see that this could overwhelm you.

The greatest peril to the Giver is the force that takes.

The greatest peril to the Taker is the force that gives.

It’s as easy to be overwhelmed by giving as by taking.

(And you, my son, are you one who gives or one who takes?

I’m the fulcrum. I cannot give without taking and I cannot take without…)
