Back when I was a teenager, I was returning home from a trip with my parents. We drove past my old elementary school. I noticed that the front of it was set up as if it were a beach with chairs, towels, umbrellas, and sandcastles. When we drove behind it, there was an ocean.
This was peculiar. There had never been an ocean there before. I asked my parents about it. They told me the town had created an artificial ocean for the sake of tourism.
We arrived at our house. Across the block was a small body of water that connected to the new ocean. Behind the water were the houses that had always been across the street in the same positions. For some reason, their front yards had been filled haphazardly with trees. I knew the trees had been transported there whole rather than grown over a period of time. My neighbors’ cars were still in their driveways, but the location of the trees and the water made it impossible to move them. My mother said the value of our home had reason because it was now a beachfront property.
We got out of the car. I noticed that the small body of water across the street from us wasn’t as picturesque as it seemed. People and cars were floating in the water. Neither of them looked happy. I felt relief because we didn’t have to go through these problems because our house was on the other side of the street. But then I looked toward the book of the houses on our side of the street. There was a flood of water coming up from behind it, headed toward our house. People and their houses were floating in the water. There would be a town meeting with the men who had put together the artificial ocean on Wednesday.
I remember this dream from a few dream from a few nights ago somewhat vividly. I like to watch horror movies, but it’s no fun when most of my dreams are straight out of a horror movie. Nearly all of my dreams is a terrible nightmare, but this one was less nightmarish. Even though it’s usually very boring to listen to someone recount a dream, I hope this wasn’t boring.
I don’t think I’ve ever written on a blog entry on this site that didn’t have to do with some sort of promotion. I’ve been extremely lazy lately due to daily pain for the last couple of months. But I’ve been feeling a bit better due to buying a new awesome mattress. The reason why I feel pain is I clench my jaw while I sleep. I think this is mostly due to all the nightmares.
