This was the earlier dreams from last night. It's pretty confusing and I forget a lot of the details. My shoddy notes don't help much, either. It takes place outside, and this is some other world. Where ever I was there were the giants that moved around these far and wide fields which grew a very curious sort of thing. They looked, at first glace, like stalks of wheat, but instead of wheat kernels this grass grew dimaonds. The strange looking giants were mostly benevolent creatures that harvested the dimaonds, presumeably to eat them, but I had found some means of robbing them of their diamond grasses. I forget how I manage it, but I sneak on to the feild a huge mobile pallet, and begin chopping the diamond grass and heaping it on there. I had one other person there also heaping the gass on the other side of the pallet, and we had one other person, out of sight, acting as a look out. The gaints would definitely get pissed off if they found out we were stealing their food. We didn't want that, as they were so big they could have picked us up and crushed us in their knobby huge hands.
I forget what the giants looked like. They were sort of human like, but had tan skins, and longish faces, like an anubis baboon. We would have considered them very ugly.
We were nearly done heaping the pallet with what wold have been possibly tens of millions of dollars worth of cut diamonds when one of the monsters came by. The creature didn't stop to ask us what we were doing, in this case it paid off to be obvious, since no one suspects you if you're doing it out in the open that you're doing anything you're not supposed to be doing. However, the giant did stop there long enough and conversed with us for a while. It was a shame, but because of this we would not be able to carry away out pallet anymore, not that the giants were aware of our presence. Instead we got away with only one measley stalk which yeilded about 50 to 60 quarter-inch diameter diamonds. Not a bad haul, but way less than hoped for.
The last thing I remember was removing the diamonds from the stalk. It wasn't unlike shucking corn. There was this wrapping that was really a lot like card stock and had to be opened, and then you ran your pinched fingers down the stock and the diamonds fell away in a sparkling pile on a table. I remember cursing under my breath about losing so many dimaonds to those stupid ugly giants.
It never occoured to me that their eatting diamonds in the first place was mightly weird.
My notes also mention a room with snow in it, and furniture. Something about my grandmother (who is dead). The snowy room was also heated, so it was both hot and cold at the same time. The recurring theme in the dream is the presence of diamonds. I would say about 20 years ago I dreamt of gem stones all the time, but then I rarely, but more recently they are back in my dreams all the time, again. This seems to be going on a lot, I've noticed, though I forget what the other old themes have come back, I wonder if it suggest some kind of cycle, or a return to what matters most. It's hard to tell. 20 years ago I was 18, when I first became interested in dreams. I no longer have a lot of those notes, but I do remember them very well. I often entered my dreams in disguise. I literally wore a costume with a wolf mask that I ended up making in waking life. It was an experiment to realize my dreams in some tangible way. I still have the wolf mask. It still fits great, and it doesn't even make me sneeze half to death to anymore like it originally did. Maybe it's time to take out the mask again for pre-dream work. Last night, before going to sleep I made up a sort of prayer for a true dream about several things. I did have a LOT of dreams, too. The later ones were very violent.
