I'm with Mom and Dad, in their home (unfamiliar to me) somewhere. Apparently I'm in high school, and in a play in which I have a leading role. I'm in my costume (long, poofed skirt and perhaps a bonnet of some sort) and ready to leave for the opening performance. My parents will come to see it tomorrow, so I'm going there by myself this evening.
 
There's a prop I need to take with me; it's an oblong-shaped closed box on wheels, somewhat like a baby carriage but rather strange and unwieldy. I push it along the street to a "station" of some sort. It's a small enclosed space which is the entrance of an 'elevator' or some kind of moving energy vehicle. I maneuver the dark gray box into this small space and wait for the vehicle to come take me to the theater. It's the first time I've had to bring this strange prop with me and I'm a bit concerned about it. Two neighborhood men, friends of my parents, come along, crowd into the entrance and say they'll accompany me. They're going to the show and looking forward to it they tell me. They're very nice men but this elevator-like area is very small and congested now; I feel claustrophobic and almost panicky ! I bolt out, dragging the box along clumsily and say that I'll go through the walkway instead because I'm nervous about opening night. They're surprised but don't object.
 
Now I'm pushing the wheeled box through a long, narrow corridor which is enclosed on all sides. There is barely enough room to push my prop through. At the last right-angled turn toward the left, the box almost gets stuck. Fortunately, yet again in almost a state of panic, I persist and finally get it to clear the walls and move on through. Then I'm out in the open air again and very close to my destination.  After that, all seems to go well....and apparently I wake with no further recall.

Additional Comments:

There was another small part in the kitchen with my parents, a pleasant conversation, which I couldn't get to come back to memory.

I am re-reading my recorded dreams since 1969, four years of Guided Writings, and a series of psychic/spiritual Readings I've had with various people over the years. All in preparation of writing another book which I'll be guided and instructred about as time goes on. I have a co-author/ghost writer this time who, I believe, has been relocated to my area for the purpose of helping me with this book. We meet next week to discuss how this will come about. Highly unusual, to say the least!

    A Preview of My Remaining Lifespan?

    I don't know where I am but this place seems vaguely familiar.  I've been here before but not recently or often. I'm ready to go home now but can't recall which road will take me there. For some reason I seem to be in motion, gliding along and being propelled forward very steadily. I'm alone here. The area turns totally unfamiliar; I must have missed the turn onto the road I need. I pass through a town and realize it's still nighttime here, quite dim in the grayness. There are no semi-familiar landmarks to guide me and no street signs that I can see.
     
    Now out in the suburbs, I glide onto a narrow, muddy and rutted road. There seems to be old, partially melted snow on the sides of this mire. Up ahead I see the murky shape of a large animal. I have no choice but to keep moving in this force or forward momentum that enwraps me. As I get closer I recognize a large farm horse pulling some kind of equipment to clear or smooth the ruts under the direction of a shadowy, indistinct farmer. I pass by carefully on the left side of this narrow road. Now I see another large animal plodding along on the embankment all by itself. It's a huge moose! Somewhat tense now, I have no choice but to continue on and, fortunately, the moose pays me no attention at all.
     
    Eventually I come to a small town. Evidently I've been released from the force that was moving me. I find a building with a small schoolroom where a female teacher is tutoring a young student. He's about 8 or 9 years old. I apologize for interrupting and explain that I'm lost. I ask if she can direct me to the road that goes to Fall River. [the city closest to my childhood hometown]  This means nothing to her but she takes a small map from her desk drawer and holds it out to me. I can see it's only a small portion of a larger road map; more than half of it is missing. I ask her to point out where we are now but she doesn't seem to understand or can't do that. Maybe this area isn't on what's left of the map. The dream ends as she continues to hold out this scrap of map to me. I'm about to take it but I'm thinking it isn't going to help me get home.

    Additional Comments:

    I wonder if this fragment of 'roadmap' is what's left of my current lifetime?  About 15 years. [I'd be 90 years old] Makes sense to me.

    Life-changing Trauma

    There are traumatized children here in this building; they're all pre-school ages (between 3 and 6) and the female caretakers are not their mothers. This is not a temporary situation. Something unpleasant has happened and these tots are permanently either orphaned or abandoned.
     
    I'm staying in this place temporarily. It's somewhat like an older hotel or very large house. There's a man with me in a double bed at one point early in the dream who seems to be a husband - but I never see him although we converse quietly (perhaps telepathically) about the fact that no one else here seems to be awake yet. 
     
    Later he's gone and I'm downstairs on the mail floor with a female friend who will be going to a football game with me in the afternoon. She and I converse telepathically and I never see her either. Part of the uniform that we'll be wearing involves white socks and I have found my freshly laundered pair on the floor. There seems to be no furniture or drawers to put clothing in here.
     
    Not many details are clear except about these children. They will be brought downstairs into the large basement playroom. I wish I could help out in some way and I offer to bring down a few purple padded items, cushions, I think, that they might like to play with. I'm told these children wouldn't be able to cope with strangers around them, so I won't be able to stay downstairs and help. I take two or three of these purple cushions downstairs now, before the children are brought down.
     
    There is a sad feeling here; it's a hopeless situation. Something traumatic and life-changing has occurred. Perhaps in this country or possibly the world. Nothing is, or ever will be, the same. Everyone is traumatized.

    Additional Comments:

    I surely hope this dream isn't precognitive. I do get them periodically and this 'feels' like one.

    (The football reference is due to my having watched the first 14 picks of the 2014 NFL Draft!)
