Lucid Intent? No

It is daytime and the atmosphere at home is not good and I have decided to leave home. It is a slightly anxious, stressful and hurried situation although I feel quite determined to push through with my decision. I do not take the time to pack anything and only take a box which contains some voice recognition software* with me.
Thoughts: The last time I visited England I saw a computer program in a shop that allows one to speak into a microphone and the words appear on the screen (without the need to type), I don’t mind typing so much but thought that this was a fun kind of idea that might help me out in writing up my dreams more quickly, it wasn’t expensive so I bought it. Unfortunately when I got it home and tried to put it on my computer it wouldn’t work as my computer wasn’t powerful enough as it’s a bit old (at least old technologically speaking). The dream drama didn’t make much sense when it first popped into my head and I thought about it, but the symbolism of taking that one item with me when I could have taken all manner of things was obviously profound, my dream or subconscious would seem to be saying that my wish to have my voice recognized or heard is something very important and perhaps something that I should try and hold on to. Dream 2: Mum’s unhappy birthday – Daytime and I find myself at home my Mum appears to be living with me (but not in waking life) she lying on a sofa in a very distressed hysterical debilitated kind of condition crying and shouting out incoherently a bit like in a dream of a day or two ago, I try to hurry around trying to think of what to do and how to help but I end just spinning around in circles feeling confused and helpless. It is apparently my Mum’s birthday (but not in waking life) and her sister (who she is on very bad terms with at the moment in waking life) is reversing onto our driveway in order to visit. The atmosphere is awful and one of extreme tension from all sides, my cousins who are all much younger leap out from aunts car and start tearing around the garden and misbehaving. I watch as my aunt and her girlfriend open up the boot of their car where I see some cartons of red wine, I immediately note that this is not the good quality type of bottled red wine but the really rough stuff. The wine is a very bad omen, symbolically the cheap wine will enrage my Mum further but the presence and drinking of alcohol will only serve to enflame the tense situation further.
