All that I can remember of this dream is that I was at work at The BP Library, and my female coworker JB left work at 1:00 PM which I somehow knew what time it was when she left.
I wondered why did JB leave work so early, eventually I left work for the day not long after that and it was still day in a slightly fictional version of the city of D, and I remember driving my brother GC to a fictional apartment and dropping him off.
When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.
I actually slept last night and I had some dreams, I did not get as much sleep as I wanted, but I am glad that I slept and dreamed for sure this time.
I had some dreams that probably took place at hotels like the one that we are staying at for our work trip.
The dreams involved me walking around and maybe sometimes meeting people, and my parents were possibly there but that is all that I can remember of these dreams.
This dream possibly took place at a convention center like the one that we go to each day during our work trip, and during the dream I met a woman with light or light-medium color skin who wore a headscarf.
The woman told me about how she had been visually, verbally, and physically harassed by people and how people made assumptions about her ethnicity and nationality and religion et cetera.
Some people would give her negative stares, some people would walk up to her and make an assumption about her and say something negative, one man called her a muslim and called her a terrorist and said some other negative things, one man pushed her and made an assumption about her nationality, et cetera.
Later in the dream I possibly saw the woman again as I walked through the building and maybe a somewhat older man with light-color skin with graying hair was harassing her and tried to attack her but I stopped him.
This woman seemed to be getting hate mostly based on her wearing a headscarf and her appearance and they would just make assumptions without bothering to find out if any of their assumptions were correct or not.
I can not remember what she told me about herself exactly, but I think that she told me that she did not wear the headscarf for religious reasons.
That is all that I can remember of this dream.
This dream may have started at a hotel but I can not remember, I remember meeting my former male classmate JC by surprise maybe, and we hung out and drove and walked to different places and even one or more cities.
We went to some parks, a yard that looked like the yard of The E House combined with something else, and more.
But that is all that I can remember of this dream.
I fell asleep on the couch and woke up few times without voice recording my dreams, I never did get in bed so I slept on the not so comfortable couch, and so now I can only barely remember part of the end of my last dream.
The end of this dream took place inside the lobby of what was probably a restaurant, and I was babysitting a male toddler who was possibly my nephew CC but I am not sure.
There was a room to our right that had an opening and maybe there was another room like this to our left, and in the middle of the lobby was the line of people waiting their turn to pay and then be seated.
I moved between these areas with the toddler following him, walking with him while holding his hand and sometimes holding him, and playing with him et cetera.
At some point I noticed a man in the line who looked like my former male classmate MM, and so I walked over to the man with the toddler and I greeted him and I asked him if he was MM.
The man made a neutral-negative serious facial expression and he told me that was not his name anymore which caught me by surprise and confused me, that he was Muslim now and that he had changed his name, and after I went to guess his new name after an awkward pause after it seemed that he might end the conversation he told me what his new name was but I can not remember it now.
I said a few more things to him even though he seemed to not want to talk to anyone, like maybe talking about his conversion to Islam and his name change was annoying to him now after having to do it so much, and the conversation quickly ended as he turned away clearly not wanting to talk even though the conversation not over yet.
I then walked away with the toddler still surprised by all of this, and I did not expect something like this from MM.
MM was a very smart student back when we were in school, he was possibly mostly raised by his grandmother in a Christian household, he used to finish his tests faster than anyone else, he got a scholarship to and / or he got accepted into maybe Duke University, he got an Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) college scholarship, and after finishing college and AFROTC he was to become a military officer in a certain Air Force so I was curious about how he had ended up converting to Islam and changing his name.
I thought that would be an interesting story to hear, but he clearly did not want to talk it seemed so I did not bother him again.
All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it took place inside a shopping mall-like building that had some house-like areas in it like those areas were used for special events, and it seemed that a wedding and wedding reception were to take place there during the dream.
I was probably dressed up and was attending the wedding and then was going to attend the wedding reception, some of my family members were probably part of this as well along with some fictional unknown people, and before the wedding started I explored part of the shopping mall (mall) areas where other people were walking around shopping.
