A new product has been put onto the market aimed at kids, it’s a cross between a sweet (candy) and a
toy, the toy looks like a small square grey plastic pocket sized panpipe.
There are about 10 or 15 small square tubes which make up the panpipe and inside of each of these
tubes is a small piece of chewing gum, the idea being that once the kid has finished chewing the gum
he fires or spits it out of the panpipe a bit like a pea shooter.
I am sat in a car as a passenger in the front seat, my wife is driving and there is also a large group of
other like-minded people travelling with us too. My wife, myself and the large group of people are
outraged by this new toy, we all consider the toy to be unhygienic because of all of the gum that we
imagine is going to be stuck all over the streets but also that it could be dangerous if a piece of the gum
hits a citizen in the eye.
We are in the town where I grew up as a child and are travelling to see the business tycoon or mogul
who has started marketing this product in order to confront him and to hopefully have the toy
We pull into the driveway of a large classy hotel where I worked as a waiter in my early teens, we get
out of the car and walk over to a small outdoor reception table where we are greeted by a waiter and
I recognise the male waiters face he is handsome and smiles at me me with a wink, I remember
working with him in a supermarket in my early twenties, he was slightly older than me. I always found
him very cool and full of self confidence, I recall that I admired and looked up to him in a strange kind
The waitress leafs through a registration book open on the table, she seem to take her time and doesn’t
appear to find our names anywhere, it is then that she realises that we have come to have a
confrontation with the hotel manager regarding his new product.
The waitress offers us both a sparkling drink in tall High Ball or Slim Jim drinking glasses and we are
both invited to go over and sit down to one side and wait at an outdoor table and bench, whilst the
businessman is made aware that we are here.
As we sit and wait it catches my attention that there is a man sat at a similar outdoor bench not too far
from us at an opposite table, he is partly obscured by a small wooden cabin or kiosk, I am very curious
and shift about trying to see who it is. I see he is dressed in an expensive suit and wears lots of gold
jewellery like bracelets and rings on his wrists and fingers, I don’t get to see he his face though as it is
hidden or still obscured.
I realise that the man sat opposite is in fact the wealthy business man we came to see and that he has
been watching and studying us all along, he is still partly obscured, he raises his arm and hand and
beckons my wife to come over to speak with him.
The man and my wife appear to be discussing something intently, after some time my curiosity gets the
better of me and I get up from my seat and walk over to see what is going, as I round the corner I am
a little shocked to see his face, from the flash of his thick silver grey hair I discover that the
entrepreneur is my great uncle.
We both confront him about the toy and tell him of our intentions to get it banned or withdrawn from the
shops, he has a firm bullish but calm attitude and he explains that he is not going to let that happen or
let us get in the way of his plans as he has no intention of letting anything come between himself, his
business activities and his pleasures which I am made aware of is horse racing in particular.
I am aware that my great uncle owns the hotel we are at too, my wife and I don’t seem to be able to
convince him and we back down almost like two children in front of a powerful adult figure of authority.
After some advice from a friend I have just recently decided to explore an aspect of myself that Carl
Jung called the ‘Shadow’, this is an area I have never considered focusing on before.
For the past two nights I have made the intention of trying to meet with my ‘Shadow’ character in my
dreams with the hope of discovering something about myself whilst learning more about my deeper
Perhaps my uncle represents the 'Shadow' character or aspect that I wished to meet?
I think that dream may have quite a few layers of meaning, I have a hunch (although I may be
confusing things) that some parts of this dream may have something to vaguely do with a muddled way
of thinking that I have regarding my art and the feeling that making money or a living from it isn’t
ethical? Or that it has something to do with enjoyment or pleasure? That doesn’t seem to be exactly
what I feel but there is perhaps a flavour of that there somewhere.
Any ideas or advice from readers is more than welcome.
