Muhammad Ali | A Stolen Turkey

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that the end of the dream involved me sitting in a room by a bed that an old bed ridden Muhammad Ali was laying on, and we were talking; and a female nurse was in the room tending to his medical needs et cetera.

It did not seem that Mr. Ali had much time left to live, he seemed to be in pain & could not even sit up in the bed really, and he was talking about the realities of The United States past / present / future especially involving the bad things like: racism, bigotry, income inequality, imperialism / war / violence, police brutality, et cetera.

A Parrot And The Death Of A Turkey

All that I can remember of the end of this dream is that it was day, and I was in a slightly fictional version of my parents yard near a small fictional building near the gate that is on the side of the yard that the dogs are on.

I noticed a strange mostly green (but also one or more other colors) bird on the ground that seemed to be having trouble trying to fly, there were some other pets in the yard like the cats that I was worried would kill it, and so I went to pick up the bird to put it in a tree or somewhere else high.

A Buffet And Mi Parolas En Esperanto

I had at least 3 clear dreams that I woke up remembering several times, each time I would close my eyes to think about them before trying to decide whether to type them on my mobile phone or get up to voice record them, but I accidentally went back to sleep each time causing me to forget these three or more clear dreams that I remembered unfortunately.

Fortunately I do remember part of 3 other dreams, but I still wish that I had not lost the three or more other dreams that are now forgotten.

Dream 1

This dream took place during the day and maybe I walked outside the front door to see maybe my aunt JE walking up the street toward our house and / or The G House, but maybe she turned around to walk back to her house and then I noticed maybe my male cousin DE on the front porch of The G House like he had just returned from the hospital or wherever he is now.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream involved me, my parents, and a little girl with light-color skin with somewhat long curly medium-to-dark color hair (but I am not sure if she was my fictional sister, niece, daughter, cousin, or who she was exactly) going to a fictional buffet that my female coworkers CR and DT told me about.

We got to the buffet near closing time or the closing time for the buffet even though it was probably not evening or night, and so we did not have much time.

The entrance was at the far left side of the building, not too far from it was the front counter, to the right of the counter was a bar-style seating area, around the edges of much of the building were tables and chairs, there were several rows of food bars from the middle left side of the building to near the end of it, I guess the kitchen and main employee areas were on the right side of the building on the left of it, and to the right of that was possibly an open room or two with one being another counter with another entrance to the right of it, and the last of the seating areas on the rest of the right side.

The building was rectangular and pretty big, my parents picked the bar-style seating area, and then maybe I went to use the bathroom because I needed to urinate but I am not sure.

At some point I remember walking along the rows of food bars with one or more plates trying to see what food they had, time was running out, and a lot of food was missing and low because they were not restocking it because they were about to close the buffet soon so I did not get the normal food selection unfortunately.

I possibly saw my coworkers DT and CR but I am not sure, but I do remember a woman talking to me briefly at some point.

I remember looking at the desserts and getting several pieces of pie including a Reese’s peanut butter pie that had chocolate chip pieces and peanut butter chocolate chip shaped pieces all over it, and the desserts were probably next to the salad / fruit bars and the lights were off in this area so it was darker than the rest of the building.

In this area I saw a boy with light-color skin with brown hair in a bowl-style haircut getting some sushi, and I also saw a container of sweet tea that you press to get sweet tea and I almost got some until I realized that I already had some sweet tea at our table.

Unfortunately I woke up before I could finish getting my food and before I could eat my food and drink my sweet tea.

Dream 3

This dream was probably partly inspired by me doing a Duolingo Esperanto lesson before going to sleep and watching an Evildea video that I watched before going to sleep called Rememoroj De Mia Infaneco:

This dream took place during the morning, there was something about school that I can not remember, but I am not sure if I was still in high school (probably not) or if I worked there or if someone else I knew needed to go there or something.

Either way I decided to return to the buffet from the previous dream, I drove there and I parked outside the other entrance, and the building was in an area that looked like MLKJ Street in the city of D near where the S Club should be.

I entered the buffet and there was a long line by the second counter so I stopped to look out the entrance door window, several things happened during this part of the dream that I can not remember, but one thing that I remember is seeing my female cousin BC walking outside a house across the waiting on her ride to high school because in this dream she was younger and was in high school again.

Her ride was male classmate of hers who drove a moving van because he worked at a moving company or something, she saw a moving van drive by, but it was not him and then she found out that maybe she had missed her ride or something.

Her fictional father who was a man with dark-color skin wearing a blue baseball cap / hat walked out to see what was going on, after finding out they walked back inside the house like maybe he was going to give her a ride, and I thought about walking across the street to offer her a ride there but I decided to only do this if it seemed that her dad would not take her to school.

I walked to the line and I said something to a female employee with light-color skin with curly light-medium color hair about me not being sure if I paid for my food either last time and / or I wanted to make sure that my food it paid for this time, and then I got in line.

In the line were mostly older people with light-color skin with conservative beliefs and I heard them talking about a rumor about a male author about some comments that he had allegedly made that possibly involved he allegedly saying that maybe The United States should give 4 or 5 or all of the red states to maybe the country of Turkey, some other alleged demands, and some alleged negative things about The United States.

This sounded so unlike him, so unbelievable, so shocking, so not likely to happen that most of us did not believe this and we even said so including me who said that most people in the red states or the rest of The United States would never agree to that and would rather fight a bloody long war and die than give up their states especially to Turkey or whatever country was mentioned.

Whoever this author was he was known for certain types of books that many of the older conservative people liked and his books were usually patriotic and conservative et cetera, and so it would make no sense for him to have said those things or to want those things to happen.

They continued their conversation and I got out of it, to the left of me I noticed some men with light-color skin with short dark-color hair who looked like maybe college students from another country, and they looked at me like they wondered if I spoke another language other than English so one of them started speaking to me in another language that sounded like maybe a Romance Language (Latin-based language).

I did not understand what he was saying and I tried to figure out if it was Spanish or Italian or something else, and I heard him say some words that somewhat sounded like maybe: veni, vidi, vici and after that the only word that I can remember is vido.

I told him that I did not understand what he was saying, I paused, and then I told him that I was studying Esperanto and their faces lit up with some excitement like they had studied it before.

One of them started speaking in Esperanto, I turned to where my left ear was facing him and I looked downward trying to listen closely to recognize the words as he spoke quickly, and I was able to understand only a few words hear and there and I had somewhat of an idea of what he was saying.

At the end of whatever he said it seemed that he was introducing me to one of the other young men, and so I said: Saluton! (Hello).

I then referred to him as La amiko de… (The friend of….), I paused and the other young man told me that his name was Kevin or another name that started with K, and so I ended my sentence with Kevin or whatever his name was.

I went to say Mi parolas… (I speak…), I wanted to say only a little Esperanto but I could not think of the word, and so instead I said: Mi estas komencanto en Esperanto (I am a beginner in Esperanto).

I then started to speak in English and sometimes a bit of Esperanto when I knew the words with them about Esperanto and their knowledge and experiences with it, and hoping that we could learn and practice and use the language with each other.

Another thing that I probably said during our brief conversation was: Esperanto estas facila lingvo (Esperanto is an easy language) compared to the other languages that I have tried so far, and that I was surprised to find some other people who had heard of the language and who had studied it before.

But I woke up before I could learn more or talk about more.

The end,
