Lucid Intent? No

As we stand there with our arms wrapped around one another hugging the ghostly woman begins to evaporate, melt and dissolve into my own body where she disappears, after the very emotional drama I’m left once again alone in the quiet room feeling strangely at peace.
Thoughts: This dream had a feeling of closure about it particularly at the end. Dream 1: Going separate ways – I’m riding a horse across a vast arid plain somewhere in the American Wild West with a posse of cowboys, just up ahead of us are two railway tracks one which has an old steam locomotive which travels to the left and another which travels to the right. One of the cowboys in the group calls out to me over the bustle of the trains and our galloping to inform me that they are all heading off to the left to follow the train. I gather that they want me to follow their gang but I decide that this is where we all go our separate ways and once they are some way off in the distance I gallop off to the right away from them following the other train. Dream 2: How the West was won – I find myself in what feels like an alternate version of America in the 1960’s in a kind or rural, dry arid outback kind of place, I see a large communal dwelling which is being occupied by a group of friends who appear to be the band Fleetwood Mac only in this dream universe’s version of the extended band things are quite different. The friends all look like hippies and are led by their lead singer who just happens to be the actor Donald Sutherland. They have created a double album of work which they have called 'How the West was won' and are trying to get promoted. I take a brief look at the double album and am quite surprised by its professional finish the music is very good in particular the guitar playing. Turning the light brown album sleeve over I note that one of the songs is called ‘Joshua Tree’ (in the dream something about this seems familiar but it wasn’t until I awoke that I realized that the band U2 had an album called ‘The Joshua Tree’). The group of friends seems very counter-culture and simple, as they come out of their communal home I even see a lady who looks like Stevie Nicks dressed in a poncho. I’m involved in the dream in a strange kind of way as if I’m tagging along and following a day in their life. I note that the Donald Sutherland character is very anti-establishment almost like a revolutionary he doesn’t trust the government and speaks openly about his strong views. Dream 3: Bowie & Bacall – I find myself in a honky-tonk Wild West come New Orleans style bar, I’m aware that I am here to watch an live act that is being put on show for me. I see the musician David Bowie (circa ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’) with bright orange hair neatly parted, he sits casually downstairs I watch as he goes upstairs into a large open area where I see the actress Lauren Bacall reclining on a chaise longue, a clothes iron which is currently switched and is red hot sits upright on a nearby coffee table. David tells Lauren off about leaving the clothes iron switched on, after watching this scene the dream resets itself and I find myself back downstairs looking at David sat down casually smoking a cigarette. As if reenacting the previous scene I head upstairs where I now see my wife reclining where Lauren previously was, the clothes iron is still hot and following in David’s footsteps I tell my wife off for leaving the iron plugged in. Dream 4: The toothbrush receipt – Morning time and I wake up in bed and see my youngest sister lying just besides me to my left, nothing intimate was going on between us and we both seemed to have been sharing the bed and sleeping normally as if it was quite natural. My sister takes out a long shopping receipt and asks me in a slightly stern questioning sort of way about an item which has shown up on the receipt which is well over $1000 in value. I take the receipt to try and refresh my memory of what it could be, I see an item called ‘Nostromo’ against where the large fee is indicated. I say out loud as if I’ve just remembered and it’s come back to me “Oh, I know what that is it was a new electric toothbrush I’ve bought’.
