People On Our Porch | Getting Lost Along The Interstate

I had a lot of short dreams that I woke up remembering but went back to sleep without recording, I forgot to wear my tongue retention device, and so now I barely remember only part of two of those many short dreams.

Dream 1

This dream took place during the day at my parents house, my brothers TDC and KDC were there, and they walked past me in the dinning room to walk outside with a BB gun rifle and so I followed them and I stopped on the front porch.

I told them that was not a good idea to go outside with that, they did not listen, they then walked in the street with the BB gun so I told them again that was not a good idea and that they should not shoot toward or close to houses, but they continued anyway.

I saw some automobiles driving up the street, some drove next to our yard and maybe by The Blue House, and the others drove inside our yard on the side of the yard where the dogs are.

I then saw a female mail carrier with light-color skin with yellow medium-to-long length hair driving up the street backward as my brothers crossed back to our yard, and she almost hit them without noticing.

I waved at the mail carrier as the other people from the automobiles started walking in and through our yard to the porch where I was, I had no idea who these people were, but slowly more people arrived including maybe my former male classmate MJ and some other people with dark-color skin who seemed to be from Eastside.

I wondered if some of these people were here mistakenly, and I wondered if a family reunion or some kind of other gathering was about to take place at my parents house.

I probably greeted my former classmate MJ, he nodded back, but he was having a serious conversation with a large man with dark-color skin with short black hair who seemed to be maybe a drug dealer / drug supplier and / or something and they seemed to be talking about some illegal business stuff indirectly and partly coded.

It sounded like MJ had bought or was loaned some illegal drugs and / or something from the man, the man seemed to be threatening him and warning him about what would happen if certain things happened involving their assumed illegal business deal, but I woke up as I listened and wondered who were most of these people and why were they on our porch.

Dream 2

This dream took place during the day in a fictional LC-like city that was familiar to me and that I have probably dreamed of before, and I was driving around the city.

I am not sure what all happened in the dream, I just remember trying to drive somewhere at some point, I was driving through some familiar areas when I accidentally missed my turn and continued driving hoping to reach a road that would allow me to turn around.

Unfortunately I was taken on what looked like an interstate or highway, I drove up it past some slightly familiar areas until I got lost, and then I took an exit to a park-like rest stop-like area along it that was swamp-like.

I parked on the grass and I got out to walk around looking at the plants / flower / water et cetera, and I hoped to find something or someone who could help me find my way back to the city.

There were people walking around including the mixed martial artist Chuck Liddell, and I saw a man with light-color skin with black hair who claimed to be a doctor who was acting and talking like he was mentally unstable and he was telling people that he was a doctor and offering to help or something and he just kept repeating himself so I just greeted him and walked around him and did not stop to talk.

Park of this area was possibly under a bridge or something so I walked there because there was more grass / plants and a pond and maybe some sitting areas and some shade, and in this area I saw a woman with light-medium color skin wearing a pea coat who was a mixed martial artist who reminded me of the female assassin / hitwoman Bracka from the television show The Purge and she had her male coach with her.

The woman was also acting unstable and she walked up to me trying to get me to fight her, I did not say or do anything because I felt that it would lead to a fight, and then her coach stopped her and took something from one of her hands that she had behind her back.

It seemed that the woman had a small stabbing-type melee weapon in that hand, and she probably would have stabbed me if I had responded to her challenge so I was glad that I did not respond.

Her coach apologized and walked her away from me while lecturing her, I wondered what was going on because I had just seen two mentally unstable people back-to-back, and so I decided to leave and take my chances trying to get back to the city.

But I woke up.

Waking Up From A Snakebite?

Dream 1

I am not sure if this is one or several dreams so I will type it has one dream.

This dream involved a lot of traveling by various modes of transportation (by foot, automobile, et cetera) between and around different cities with different people at different times of day, and possibly over several different days but I am not sure.

Jungle Dreams

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it took place during the day, and I think that I was in a jungle with some of my family but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that the boxer Mike Tyson and a man with whitish-colored skin were picked for a reality television series that would send them to a jungle to train and learn to survive.


Where Is Lily?

There was a lot more to this dream from last night that I can not remember unfortunately, and so this dream will not make as much sense without all of those missing details.

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place inside one or more multi-story maybe somewhat college-like buildings, and there were strange and dangerous things going on in some parts of the building or buildings.

There were possibly dangerous and powerful non-humans in this dream like vampires and/or some other types of entities, but even in the dream I do not remember ever learning if this was true or not and I do not remember learning what kinds of entities were there.

It is possible that different types of entities and/or groups controlled and patrolled certain areas, so there were various dangers and maybe traps and things that you had to worry about, and one or more people (maybe including me) were probably investigating one or more things.

One thing that I remember hearing about during the dream was that a woman named Lily was missing, and during one part of the dream as I explored (investigated) a dark and creepy part of the building or buildings I possibly found one or more mutilated and bloody bodies (corpses) in part of the building so I wondered if this body or one of the bodies could have been Lily’s (it was probably only one body that I found and it was probably cut up and/or torn up badly, but I can not remember).

This area was probably too dangerous so I probably left and I was going to report it later or I reported it to the other investigators and/or asked around about it and warned other people, and later in the dream I remember being with some of my family (my parent’s and maybe at least one of my brothers) as we walked into an area of the building controlled by a small dangerous military unit who seemed to probably be involved in secret military experiments and research with little to no oversight so the military officer or soldier (he was possibly not an officer) in charge seemed to be doing mostly whatever he wanted.

The military officer or soldier in charge was a very dangerous man with whitish-colored skin with short yellow hair in a military style fade and he looked somewhat like a thinner more villainous version of Brock Lesnar, and I remember my family and I getting in a confrontation with these soldiers but I am not sure how.

I just remember my mom wanting answers about something and the soldiers were refusing to give up any information, and they seemed like they were ready to kill us if the soldier in charge gave the command so I tried to talk our way out of this situation to save my family because I felt that we would be killed if I did not handle this situation properly so I had to get my family to stop talking and let me do the talking.

The soldiers were lined up in front of us looking like they were ready to kill us, the soldier in charge was very over-confident and I could feel the danger of the situation and the danger emitting from the soldier in charge as he stared at me (us) as I tried to talk our way out of this situation, and he seemed to be trying to decide if he would kill us or not.

I remember the soldier in charge walking up to my face and staring me down like we were about to fight, I looked him right in the eyes trying to show that I was willing to defend myself and my family if necessary, but also letting him know that I was telling the truth and that we had not seen enough to justify killing us and that I was recognizing that he had the advantage and the power in this situation.

It was a tough balancing act trying to handle this situation as we had a stare down so close that our faces were almost touching, I passed his test it seemed and he did not think that we would warn anyone about what we saw, it seemed that he had been worried that we would report them and that the government/military would investigate them and they did not want this because they were enjoying having little to no oversight.

He was controlling this area like his own fiefdom and he did not want to give up that power, and so I convinced him that we would not threaten that and they left us go without killing us.

Later in the dream I remember walking into a bar/restaurant/lounge-like room where there were other people, and there was a male bartender-like man with whitish-colored skin with black hair and mustache wearing traditional bartender clothing and apron standing behind a bar-like structure that people could sit at while he cleaned drink glasses.

A woman entered the room who somewhat reminded me of a lighter-skin version of the actress Rosario Dawson, people were afraid of her and you could feel that she was powerful and dangerous and that she was in a bad mood and that she was probably not human so I assumed that maybe she was a vampire or werewolf or an other type of entity, and she went to the bar and sat down.

The bartender knew how to talk to people so they started talking, and I took a risk and I sat near the woman as she explained why she was in a bad mood.

She said that her sister Lily was missing, I wondered if this was the same Lily who I had heard was missing earlier in the dream, and so I started talking to the woman about this and I probably talked about what I had heard and seen and I probably offered to help her find her missing sister Lily.

At some point we walked outside, the entire mood of the dream changed to a very positive one and the woman was in a good mood and I no longer felt that my life was in danger trying to talk with her, and it was a nice sunny day outside and we were having a good conversation.

Outside the building was nice small almost swamp-like pond or lake with brown (dirty) water with plants and flowers and grass around it, and some parts were shallow enough that there was grass that you could walk on through parts of it and there was a sidewalk around the building and along part of the pond.

On the left side was a street with some automobiles driving by and next to that were some old multi-story brick buildings like this was a quiet downtown-like area, and this was a nice area and I remember telling her how this reminded me of where I was born and raised.

I remember being excited as I described the similarities of this pond with ponds in L where I grew up, I remember her smiling and laughing as I described the brown (dirty) water and swamp-likeness, and I remember us walking on some of the grass areas through and around the pond.

Under the water near the top I saw a green snake with a large somewhat odd-shaped head, it looked like a snake from a dream that I once had when I was a kid where a flying squirrel turned into a snake, and when I looked away and back at it the snake had changed colors from green to a teal blue or teal green or teal blue/green.

I remember being confused by this and I remember wondering if some snakes could change colors like this, I asked the woman if she noticed the color change as well and she did, and as usual I started to slowly see more snakes (which is common in my dreams, if I see one snake, I usually start to see more).

I saw the tail of another snake in or near the water, once we reached land I saw the tail of one or two other snakes, and so I decided that we should turn around and walk back on the sidewalk instead.

We continued walking and talking and enjoying the moment, this was a nice and relaxing experience and area, and I was really enjoying our conversation and walk and the scenery which all seemed so realistic but I woke up.

The end,
