time in dreams
first scene: it was a sunny day, very warm. i looked at my watch and saw it was two minutes before 12 a.m.
went into a pub and bought half a pint of guinness shandy
second scene: was outside of the pub and out of the pub's premises on the pavement with the drink. the drink was in a dimple glass
third scene: took a sip of the drink WHICH WAS REALLY REFRESHING. two males in the dream became belligerent and i began looking for a way out of the situation
fourth scene: right on cue, at three minutes past 12 a bright white double-decker bus entered the dream
fifth scene: i got on the bus and was chatting happily to someone on the bus when the dream ended
first scene... the dream lasted 5 to 6 minutes of real time. during the day before the night of the dream i remember thinking it was the warmest day of the year and got dressed ready to go out. alas by the time i was free to go out the weather changed to cool and i didn't go out. the crossroads junction was near to where i grew up during my early years (family connections meant i visited there 20 or more times a year over the following decades). this specific road junction has featured many times in dreams over the years. there must be a reason why this real-life place occurs so often in dreams.
second scene: the glass was vivid in the dream. don't understand why the glass was such a dominant feature of the dream
THIRD SCENE: THE SATISFYING TASTE OF THE DRINK MAY REFLECT A PHYSIOLOGICAL NEED FOR A DRINK IN REAL TIME SINCE I CAN'T REMEMBER A PARTICULAR INSTANCE OF A SATISFYING DRINK DURING THE DAY OF THE DREAM
FOURTH SCENE: THE WHITE BUS MUST SURELY BE EQUIVALENT OF A KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR COMING TO THE RESCUE
FIFTH SCENE: THE OUTCOME OF LIFE IS A HAPPY ENDING
in the writer's experience, as often as not, the content of dreams are formed by the thoughts during the day of the dream
and still recognition of his sacrifices go unmentioned
