Daytime and a short dream where I find myself out at sea watching an Aesop’s like tale about a sea salmon and a crab. The lowly crab helps the noble salmon by picking small parasites from its body, the drama seems metaphorical somehow like a fable.
Thoughts: I can’t really say what this dream means perhaps something to do with the unconscious
although I was left with the impression that it definitely carries a meaning of some sort a bit like a
parable. All of last night’s dreams were quite vivid and I was surprised by my recall as I haven’t been
feeling very well the past day or two, the final dream I had last night also contained animals too.
Dream 1: Raising the roof – It is late evening time and I find myself inside an old stone barn that was a
part of my childhood home, this barn appears to be a new home for my wife and I. The barn needs a
great deal of work doing to it as it currently just a large littered open space, the walls look quite good
and are a rustic white with medieval style wrought iron lit candelabras. My wife asks me if we will be
able to have a second floor created upstairs, it doesn’t look possible to me though but I still take out a
tape measure to check the height from the floor up to the current ceiling. After checking the
measurements I explain it won’t be possible as both floors would end up having impractically low
ceilings so it will be better to keep just one large room with a high ceiling. I also add as if to back up
my story that the task involved in fitting new joists for an upstairs floor would entail a huge amount of
work and would necessitate taking the barn to pieces stone by stone which seems pointless to me. I
continue to go about my work and with a broom I sweep out a lot of organic matter such as leaves and
dump it on the other side of the road near the hedge, after I’ve done this I wonder if somebody will
come and complain to me for leaving the old vegetation lying there.
Dream 2: Covering a cupboard door – Daytime and I find myself at an unfamiliar version of the place
where I work in waking life I’m walking around looking for a small piece of particle board in order to
cover a cupboard door with. I note that I’m dressed quite casually in an indigo coloured t-shirt it would
appear that I’m too casually dressed as a top manager walks past me and gives me a very sharp and
mean glare as if he disapproves immensely of my clothing. The casual clothing seemed okay at first but
now arrangements at work appear to have been made much stricter in all regards. I wander out into a
corridor where I see some men in white overalls renovating the hallway, I watch as one man puts
together a scaffolding framework I watch lucidly as he uses a gravely cement to put the frame together
which strikes me as most unusual. Amongst their many sheets of particle board I find a small trapezoid
shaped scrap which seems perfect for the cupboard door I want to cover. I go back into the office area
and crouch down and somehow manage to glue it onto the cupboard door (the task in itself seems
pointless to me in waking but that’s what I was doing in the dream so I guess it has some sort of a
meaning). When I get up from the work I look out of the windows and see that it is raining, in fact it is
really hammering down creating a watery blur of the scenery outdoors.
Dream 3: Mario the bear – Evening time and I find myself find myself in the slightly creepy house of an
unfamiliar kooky family of a mother, father, daughter and son. I’m made aware that the daughter and
son are involved in some kind of strange incestuous relationship I watch as they perform oral sex on
one another the purpose of which seems to be to do with cleansing, in fact I watch as they take a bath
together and continue their ritual. Much later I’m taken to the swimming pool in my childhood
hometown by the eerie family, we all enter the pool and go under the water, we stand at the bottom of
the pool watching the bathers above us through an unpleasant cloudy yellow water which can only be
described as looking like urine. I drift away from the strange family when I notice that there are
animals floating in the pool up above, I float up to the surface where I see two lifeless camels floating
on their sides in the pool. I then paddle down to the shallows where I’m met by the startling sight of a
huge bear walking upright back and forth in the shallow end, a swimming pool attendant explains that
these creatures represent some kind of cruel entertainment for the people who come to swim at the
pool (some sort of vague parallel between the animals and inflatable amusements). I see that the bear
has been dressed in human clothing something like a lumberjack might wear and I also notice that all
of the huge beasts fur has been removed leaving it with an uncanny human appearance. It is also
impressed upon me that the bear’s claws have been pulled out so as to prevent it from harming
anybody swimming at the pool, something which must have caused the bear extreme pain I imagine.
Suddenly the bear speaks to me which causes me a great deal of shock and surprise, the bear
introduces himself as Mario and asks me in a deep despondent melancholy voice if I could wipe the
steam and condensation from the swimming pool windows as that is the only little pleasure he has now
to watch the world pass by outside the window. I want to help this sad creature so I go over to the
window and wipe the condensation away. I look outside and see that it is night time and snowing. (The
last part of this dream affected me a lot emotionally for some reason and as it was the last dream I had
before waking up I really felt very emotional almost tearful for some strange reason at the bears

(Just as a warning to any squeamish readers this dream is pretty gross and weird....read at your own peril).
An unidentifiable but friendly dream male hands me a large white dinner plate loaded with a spaghetti of parasitic worms, he does this as if giving me a lesson. The sight is absolutely revolting but thankfully the redeeming aspect of this demonstration is that the spindly thread worms and grotesquely bloated tape worms are all dead, in fact this seems to be the whole positive point of the male’s demonstration.
A subtle shift takes place and another demonstration takes place for my benefit I feel (....and this is going to sound pretty darn weird for sure). I watch as a dog drags himself sat upright past me, he does this in such a way as if dragging his bum along a carpeted floor by his front paws. (I’ve seen some dogs do this when they are being irritated by parasites).
The scene with the dog looked kind of funny and unusual and I feel is done in a light hearted humorous way in order to make the lesson not so heavy and disturbing what with the subject matter.
After the dog’s demonstration has ended and he has moved out of view to my right a large rabbit or hare comes into view from my left and does exactly what the dog was just doing, dragging his bum along the floor with his front paws as if to provide some relief from the parasites.
Seeing the dog do this was pretty weird but seeing a rabbit do it really is quite bizarre, I think to myself that this is definitely something you don’t see everyday. Both the first scene with the plate of white worms and then the one with the dog and rabbit seemed more like demonstrations to me and I played no part other than being an observer of what was being presented before me.
Interpretation: Before anyone panics I don’t have a problem in this regard!!! The dream is definitely
symbolic I feel and although it was extremely disgusting I found a lot of solace in the fact the worms on
the plate were all dead. The scene with the two animals is probably linked to various emotions or
instincts associated with the dog and rabbit, perhaps the drama represents how I had problems in this
regard that were leaching me of vitality, but now they are dead because I have managed to overcome
them. Just as a note this dream and all of the others I had this night had a positive feeling about them.
Dream 1: Dad’s perfect wheelie – I find myself in an opening or clearing in a large forest some kind of
festival is taking place here it is vaguely concerning some kind of amateur off-road motor sports. My
father is here and so are most of the rest of his side of the family too, the atmosphere is one of
expectation and excitement. My Dad is riding a strange off-road chopper style motorcycle on the
muddy ground, he pulls a slow triumphant perfect vertical wheelie. His mastery, balance and control
over the vehicle under such conditions is quite remarkable and I feel so proud of him as he wheelies
around the track entertaining the spectators. When my Dad finishes putting on his show I run over to
him to congratulate him and just be with him, he seems surprisingly confident and not at all what he is
like in waking life. He indicates and suggests that I go over to an outdoor exhibit of some large sepia
tone photographs of him pulling similar wheelies to the amazing one he just pulled, I gather that there
is something I could learn from looking at these photographs.
Dream 2: Reconciling with my stepfather – A very vague dream where I am over at my Mum’s house, I
have a very emotionally charged meeting with my stepfather. Both he and I come to a very deep
understanding, the ambiance of profound reconciliation and mutual love seems the most important
aspect of the dream (this dream wasn’t really visual as such).
Dream 3: Still no more need to shower – I am at my Mum’s house once again and this time I am trying
to take a shower but just like in one of yesterdays dreams the plumbing seems to work fine but I am
denied a shower, its almost as if the shower and plumbing has a mind of its own and is basically telling
me that its not going to give me a shower because I don’t need one. I note that a bathroom cabinet has
come away from the wall, I try to push it back onto its brackets but it seems loose and won’t fit back on
properly any more.
Dream 5: That’s simply not cricket – Daytime and I find myself in an old style wooden courtroom which
also happens to be a church, two teams of cricketers are here playing a cramped indoor game of
cricket against one another in-between the pews. One of the teams is made up of white men and the
other black, I watch as one of the white men bowls a blistering fast ball at the stumps of the opposition
blasting them to smithereens and sending dangerous shards and splinters of wood flying all about the
large open space. One of the black men who was nearly hit in the head by the hard cricket ball objects
heatedly to what the white man did, he goes on to explain that the white man before the match
explained that fast bowling in this game is not permitted but here he seems to have broken his own
rules. There is a definite feeling of prejudice here, a kind of one rule for one and another rule for the
Dream 6: The relaxed swimming pool date – My mother-in-law is helping me to get ready to meet a
woman for a date at a swimming pool (I’ve never dreamt of this female person before and only knew
her very briefly at art college and not to speak to, she came from a well to do kind of background and
family I seem to remember). As I get dressed I notice that I have too many layers on, I don’t feel
particularly uncomfortable but it does seem strange, I even try to put on two pairs of jeans but I soon
realize it’s not possible. When we arrive at the swimming pool I go to a counter where there is a kind of
cloakroom where you can leave your belongings whilst you go to the pool either as a spectator or as a
swimmer. Surprisingly I seem to be right at the front of the queue and the rest of the people waiting
are all ever so polite and helpful urging me to take my turn first this makes me feel very comfortable,
happy and as if things are going my way for once. The fee for leaving my jacket here is only fifty cents
so I take out a handful of change and find the right coin easily which again makes me feel very happy
and fortunate. The man serving behind the counter is an English comedian he takes my coat but not
before I remove my wallet, I feel I’d like to keep this with me so I can keep a close eye on it. After I
leave this area I walk over to a kids recreation area where I see a climbing area full of these colored
plastic balls, I see two men down below playing in the spheres they beckon me down so I jump down
into the sea of balls which is quite fun. I find a baton made of foam down in the balls, as I wallow in the
balls I also remember that I’m here to meet the lady for a date. I seem to know that the woman is
already by the pool but a part of me also realizes that there is no real hurry to meet her and that I can
relax and take my time leisurely.
