I am traveling on a slick classy night train through some pleasant dark countryside the atmosphere on
the train is very upbeat, positive and cozy.
I’m residing in a large private 1st class carriage with the English music group Depeche Mode. I note a
detail almost immediately which seems significant, a band member who left a few years ago has
returned to be an active member of the group again.
In my dream this player was the old drummer and something of a leader or director, the fact he is back
and there are now four again rather than three is extremely positive.
As the old style steam train powers through the night the band start writing new music together and
rehearsing fresh material, it’s all extremely positive and I even seem to get involved at some level too.
The ease with which the band comes up with new music and lyrics is echoed in the seamless silky
driving power of the dynamic steam locomotive.
The new music that the band members are coming up with is very memorable but it is also neutral and
safe which seems like a good progressive way of getting started in their music writing again.
I see that the effeminate songwriter is wearing a long dress over his male trousers and top, this dress
looks like the sort of thing a fashionable pregnant woman might wear. The fabric is made from coarse
distressed cotton in a feint khaki green color. The garment has shoulder straps like dungarees have, its
chic in a combat or Matrix movie kind of way.
Later on and still at night I follow the band back to the house they are all sharing together the property
just happens to be in the street I lived in in my early to mid teens, in fact the house belonged to a
slightly older boy who I looked up to very much as a kid.
I relax and feel in great company with the band and they seem to let me stay with them sort of as an
extra member of their band or group.
Whilst at the house I receive a phone call on my mobile telephone and I see that it is Bruce Dickinson
the lead singer of the English heavy metal band Iron Maiden. He asks me to come into town and meet
him at a pub for a drink with him and some of his friends.
I take the call just outside for some privacy and to not worry the new band I’m hanging out with. I
really don’t want to go out for a drink with him (in the dream it felt as if we had been of previously good
terms and often hung around together) I don’t really want his company any more though but don’t want
to upset him or cause an argument. He becomes quite insistent and pushy but I manage to stand strong
and tell him no once and for all that I won’t be going out with him any more as it’s not what I want.
I feel very high and good for speaking my mind after saying what I had say on the telephone, and with
that I head back in to the house to be with the rest of Depeche Mode.
Interpretation: This dream was so upbeat and positive which is quite rare for a train dream for me, the
fashion side in the meaning of Depeche Mode’s name probably relates to me making some changes in
my way of thinking the previous day in an attempt to be more upbeat and positive rather than any
reference to their waking life music, a bit like how one might change clothes or fashion to bring on a
new mood or to even feel like a new person. My refusal of the evening out with the other musician
represents my rejection of the ‘heavy’ feelings associated with that former way of being, the name of
the heavy metal band is also the name of an old torture device which kept a victim locked up in without
any room to move which is in stark contrast to the way the beautiful old train powered along
effortlessly at the beginning of the dream.
Dream 2: Peace and solitude – I find myself at my Nan’s house in her kitchen I have packed up my
suitcase and bags and am going to moving out, it feels like a positive thing almost as if I have reached
the age to venture out on my own or the time has come to be moving on. I don’t bear any ill feelings at
leaving and even go so far as to make sure I buy all of my family members a gift before I leave. I feel
and know that the place where I am going will make me feel relaxed and at peace.
Dream 3: Huge bank statement – I find myself stood at the dreamy pastel colored service counter of
an outdoor bank (?) the atmosphere is upbeat and positive. I head over to a bank clerk for some kind
of information and not a withdrawal or deposit the man asks me for my identification number, a few
moments pass where I seem to forget my number but I eventually manage to recall it and give it to
him (this little scene seemed to attract the attention of a man stood to my left). The clerk walks off and
comes back a short while later with a massive pile of papers weighing down his arms, the huge stack of
paper is apparently a bank statement showing all of the movements in and out of my dream bank
account. The size of the statement isn’t at all daunting and actually seems positive as the movements
aren’t only withdrawals but also represent deposits too, the idea of having so many movements in and
out of the account leaves me feeling very content and satisfied.
Dream 4: The turtle dreamer – (Apparently in my dream) I made a (dream) dream interpretation for a
Dream Journal member some months ago, the interpretation was for a woman roughly my age who is
from India. The lady has got back in touch with me via a comment replying to my original
interpretation. The woman goes on to politely say (with a surprised tone as if to excite me or make me
wonder) that I got it all wrong about her dream. The lady’s dream was about turtles and apparently I
gave her a definition of turtle which was less than positive. The lady tries to invigorate me with a much
more upbeat view of this special creature, she paints a picture of the amazing animal (literally as I see
it in interactive moving images in my dream) of a huge pastel colored turtle gentle soaring through the
depths of a crystal clear tropical ocean. I’m totally convinced by what the woman said and wonder to
myself how I could have been so wrong! It’s so clear now, of course turtles are such a wonderful
symbol! The dream pen friend seems elated that she has managed to change my views about the turtle

Its night time and I find myself at a stadium where a large rock concert is taking place, the heavy
metal band Metallica are playing up on stage (very strange as I’ve never listened to this bands music,
its not the kind of music I listen to in waking life).
I start to pick up on some kind of drama that has taken place within the band, apparently the lead
singer guitarist (the one with the moustache and the only one I recall from this band) has left the band
quite some time ago.
I see him down in the audience close to the stage watching his old band perform it looks like his old
band mates have invited him to watch them perform. I see that he has put on lots of weight and looks
very much out of shape, from the expression on his face I can see that he is seething inside with rage
at the situation.
One of the other band members has come to the fore to take the old guitarists role he looks very
young and has a very feint fluffy moustache the kind a teen age boy might try and grow. This young
man also has a very un-heavy metal haircut of a cropped bowl haircut style.
A fact which seems to add insult to injury for the old lead singer is that this new front man is using his
old guitar, the young man is something of a prodigy with the instrument and manages to play
unbelievable fast and beautiful music, this isn’t heavy metal but is classical guitar.
The man plays chords and notes incredibly fast the music sounds like a mix of flamenco and
harpsichord. As the music becomes quicker and more technical a black screen fades into my point of
view and shows some music bars with notes.
The black screen with white text is very reminiscent of an educational television programme that used
to be aired in the U.K. called the Open University. As the man plays white writing appears on the screen
indicating the notes the man is playing and other technical information, words such as ‘Hammering’
and ‘Staccato’ are shown with lots of other Latin text (the Latin element seemed very important).
After playing for a while the band invite their old front man up onto the stage which brings a huge cheer
from the audience, the old lead singer is still furious but accepting of their offer. The previous front man
carries a large box of cigarettes up onto the stage tucked under his arm, they are the kind that are
available at the Duty Free at airports.
The man throws the large pack of cigarettes at the new lead guitarist in exchange for the return of his
old guitar, he is still raging but seems to be bursting with motivation to show his stuff. He slings his
guitar strap over his shoulder and gets himself ready to lead the band once more.
After the concert I see the new young lead singer stood alone, I pick up on the fact that this genius has
both a good and a bad side to his character.
Interpretation: As I know very little about this band I’d say that it must be symbolic possibly saying
something about doing things in a less a heavy handed way and to perhaps try and adopt a more
classical, lighter or youthful approach to my way of doing things. The Latin symbolism seemed to be
very important and upon waking reflection so did the two front men’s moustaches.
Dream 1: Try my black Ferrari – It’s daytime and I find myself on a very large paved driveway lined
with tall palm trees in front of a very grand white mansion the type with large pillars either side of the
front door apparently this incredible home is mine. I’m casually preoccupied carrying something I’ve
bought from inside a vehicle into the house, I feel very new inside and on top of the world. My brother-
in-law turns up with my sister and his children he looks a little worn and downtrodden I decide to take
him out for a drive in one of my many cars parked out on the huge semicircular driveway, I choose a
black Ferrari which I saw he had his eye on when he turned up knowing that he’d really appreciate
going out for a spin in it.
Dream 2: Expensive hair products are fine by me – I am driving a car towards some parking spaces
sheltered by what looks like a flyover supported by concrete pillars. Trying to park is very fiddly the
spaces are all arranged in diagonal but many of the people parked here have ignored this layout and
have parked vertically instead. Just as I’m about to pull into a space somebody swings their car into the
opening and takes my spot I have to circle around the car park to look for another space which I
eventually find. After I’ve parked I get out and remove a female shop mannequin from the boot which I
have all wrapped up in a blanket, I discard this item in a fenced off hedge at the rear of the parking
where it becomes tangled up in some barbed wire. Just then I see my Nan with another woman who is
unfamiliar to me they both seem happy and look at me with smiles as if to send me positive thoughts
possibly in relation to my discarding of the female dummy, my Nan looks cold though and wraps her
arms around herself shivering she looks as though she could do with a coat. On the second tier of a
shopping mall linked to the parking I meet a female work colleague who is accompanied by another
female (this couple seemed to echo the partnership of my Nan and her friend too), in this dream the
colleague doesn’t look anything like she does in reality but I know it is her, she also happens to be my
dream wife too. My demeanor around these two women is extremely mellow and laid back, my dream
wife says she is going over to a hairdresser where she is going to spend £160 on some very expensive
hair products, she says this in such a way as if asking my permission or approval. I tell her “Sure, no
problem”. I know that my artistic aunt has an art shop in this mall somewhere that I would like to take
the two ladies too but I have my doubts as to whether they would be interested in going to have a visit.
The floor of this upper level of the mall is flooded with about an inch or two of water. It’s not really a
problem more of a nuisance the water is flowing towards an elevator where I see it gushing down
through the gaps in the lift door down to the ground floor below.
Dream 4: More toilet relief – I find myself in a very large house with many rooms the interior décor is
all white and is very classical and feminine in style. I am bursting to go to the toilet but I can’t find the
lady who owns this house in order to ask her where and if I can use her lavatory. All of the doors to the
rooms in the house are pulled to and shut but the keys to the doors have all been conveniently left in
their locks, I rush from door to door entering the rooms in my search for the bathroom. I eventually
find the rest room which looks a little untidy with make-ups strewn all over the place, its not really a
mess just that the lady who owns this house never seems to put anything away. I dash over to the
toilet and have a wee, the relief is immense but as I’m using the toilet a face powder make-up drops off
a shelf or the cistern down into the toilet bowl. There’s not much I can do now but to just flush it down
the toilet after I’ve finished.
