I almost did not type my dreams today because of the constant distractions/annoyances which will probably return again soon, so I will try to type my dreams now out of order and randomly as I remember parts of my dreams to save time, before I get too annoyed/distracted again to type; and so expect errors and missing details, and I am not sure if the second dream is one or two dreams, so I will assume that it is one dream.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of the first dream is that it was inspired by the audiobook for the book Childhood’s End that I started listening to on YouTube because my local library does not have the book or the audiobook, I stopped at chapter 3 before going to sleep, and my dream was about the parts that I listened to where maybe aliens arrived to Earth in spaceships, but they would never show themselves; and there was a human male main character and people wanted to know what the aliens looked like, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Grace Randolph’s Secret Video Clip Interview With Lenny Kravitz

I only can remember part of one dream that had several parts to it but I can not remember the first part exactly, I just remember seeing a short secret recording of Grace Randolph interviewing the singer/actor Lenny Kravitz probably in reference to the new Hunger Games film that will be coming out this year called The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (I never seen The Hunger Games or read any of the books, but I did watch the 2000 Japanese film Battle Royale this year), and during this short secret recording Mr. Kravitz thought that the camera was off; and him & Grace were talking off-the-record, or so he thought.

It seemed that they were taking a break from their interview or the interview was over or something like that, and Grace asked Mr. Kravitz a question about his personal opinion toward a certain Hollywood company or Hollywood in general in reference to something that I can not remember; but he did not want to risk answering that question on camera, and so he asked Grace if the camera was off & she said yes or nodded her head & he glanced at the camera to decide if he thought it was off or not.

Grace started pushing the camera back but she kept looking at it like she knew that it was still on, she made sure to move it where it could still record them, and so it seemed that she was going to record Mr. Kravitz answer even though he asked for this not to be recorded; and she tricked him/lied to him it seemed, which was surprisingly.

The secret video clip that I was saw looked realistic and was filmed from the camera angle that you would expect, the video & audio quality was what you would expect in a situation like this, and the secret video clip stopped shortly after Mr. Kravitz answered Grace’s question and his answer was negative toward Hollywood and/or a certain Hollywood company but I & even Grace agreed with his answer even though I can not remember what his answer was exactly; but at the end of the secret video clip it seemed like Grace was flirting with him a bit or at least was interested in him, and maybe she set up a date or another meeting or hoped to have one with him later or soon.

The dream jumped in time and I went to a nice park during the evening near a pond that had patios/decks/dock-like areas with picnic tables, there was food & drink, and lots of people talking & relaxing; and a big white screen was there because we were going to watch a film later, but I am not sure if Grace had called us for a special meeting and/or if this was done once a week in the park.

I was enjoying myself eating, drinking, talking, and enjoying the view in this nice & relaxed park; and I noticed Grace wearing a small princess crown/tiara wearing a probably mostly black colored outfit with several layers to it that I can not describe, and she was walking around like she was waiting on someone like she had a date or something & so I assumed that she was waiting on Mr. Kravitz who(m) she was supposed to meet or wanted to meet again.

Most of the other people at the park seemed to know Grace as well, so that is why I am not sure if Grace had called us all to the park for a meeting & then to watch a film or not, but Grace did not say anything to us; and she seemed to be too focused on whoever she was waiting to meet, and she seemed to be acting or practicing her acting skills like this was a comedy skit or something.

We decided not to bother her but we did glance at her sometimes to see what she was doing, and she kept walking around over-acting like in a comedy skit; and she even started mumbling/talking out-loud to herself sometimes, and it was a bit funny but we were not sure if she was joking or serious & so we tried to not laugh at her.

Mr. Kravitz or whoever she was waiting for or pretending to wait for never showed up, so Grace walked over to us still over-acting, and she took off her crown / tiara & one or two layers of her outfit; and she was mumbling/complaining about something, and maybe we talked to her but I can not remember this part.

After the forgotten part either Grace or someone else started playing a film, which was a fictional film that had a title like: Close Encounters Of The Third Kind: *Something* *Something* or something close to that; and I assumed that it was a Steven Spielberg film that I never seen before about aliens.

The film started during a battle in a war that seemed to be World War II (WWII) or World War I (WWI), a man who looked like or was Clint Eastwood was playing an American soldier, and he was arriving at a battle between the American military and another military but I am not sure which military because the battle was during the night.

Something happened that interrupted the battle, maybe an alien spaceship arrived or something, and something very strange happened that even I can not remember other than a bright light or lights in the sky causing everyone to stop as we all stared at it; maybe we all had our memory erased or something because all I can remember is the bright light(s), I am not sure, even though I was only watching this film.

Things get even more strange and unclear after this part, I am not sure what happened or what was happening next, but I remember traveling by automobile with my family, my uncle CE, my grandfather, and a fictional man who worked with my dad & his family; and maybe even Clint Eastwood’s character from the film and another character from the film, but I am not sure about these two characters being in this part or not.

We drove somewhere and we got out of the automobile(s), one of which was a white colored Chevrolet Suburban owned by the fictional man who worked with my dad, and I remember my uncle CE & my dad trying to help my grandfather walk; but he ended up falling still, and they fell with him while they were trying to hold him up.

Everything is unclear and so I have no idea what happened or what was happening, I just remember an argument starting about the Suburban, my dad offered to pay for gasoline for it; but the man who worked with my dad wanted more than that oddly, and so an argument started about that & partly about whatever had happened during the part(s) of the dream that I can not remember.

Tensions were a bit high, so something serious/strange must have happened earlier, and I tried to calm the situation; and it helped a bit, and I tried to help everyone figure out what should we do next especially for/about my grandfather because he was looking very frail but that is all that I can remember & I woke up.

The end,
