This dream was inspired by the ongoing George Floyd protests / riots and a YouTube video that I saw about them called THE RIOTS | WHAT PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND | Double Toasted by the YouTube channel Double Toasted:

Danistro Or Daneestro?

I woke up remembering several dreams several times, I tried to get myself to record them but I went back to sleep each time, and now I can only remember barely part of several other dreams while the others are forgotten now.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that Emma Roberts was possibly in the dream.

Recently the YouTube channel TED-Ed had an interesting video called: Why Should You Read Kurt Vonnegut? – Mia Nacamulli:

Kurt Vonnegut found the tidy, satisfying arcs of many stories at odds with reality, and he set out to explore the ambiguity between good and bad fortune in his own novels.

He tried to make sense of human behavior by studying the shapes of stories — ditching straightforward chronologies and clear-cut fortunes.

Mia Nacamulli dives into the sometimes dark, yet hopeful works of Vonnegut.

Lesson by Mia Nacamulli, directed by TED-Ed.

Visiting Libraries And Making Suggestions

Dream 1

This dream involved me visiting the various branches of The BP Library talking to coworkers, helping, encouraging them, and giving suggestions to help them improve at their jobs and to improve the libraries et cetera.

One of my coworkers that I know that I visited was my female coworker MH, she was at one of the smaller library branches, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream was basically a continuation of the previous dream with me visiting fictional versions of The BP Libraries talking to some of my real coworkers during the day.

Outside one of the fictional libraries that felt like it was where the BB Grocery Store on Southside should be, I arrived by automobile, some of my coworkers were outside taking a break like my female coworkers MH and JB and someone else (maybe MA).

We talked, I gave them library suggestions and encouragement to help them with their jobs, and I remember telling JB that I was on page 15 of the book 11/22/63 that she had suggested (I read to that page before getting in bed).

There was something else going on in the dream of maybe some other group going around offer money and other incentives to help people improve at their jobs, and find things that they actually want to do in their lives.

Inside the library this group approached Cat Grant from the television show Supergirl about this, their approach seemed a bit shady like someone trying to bribe you, and so Ms. Grant was cautious and did not trust them so she questioned them about their intentions.

They claimed to just want Ms. Grant and others to be better at their jobs and to find what they really want to do in life.

But I woke up as I walked away from their conversation.

The end,

-John Jr
