being sick lately i've been doing a lot of sleeping. waking up briefly then going back to bed. some pretty energetic dreams. a while ago i was dreaming i was half watching, half acting in a film about some people who sneak into a compound belonging to a different time. while hiding, encountered a baby who wanted to play with keys. the baby seemed to have a flash of recognition about a certain odd-shaped key, as if some foreknowledge had been implanted in him. then somehow i was free to descend to the earth from a great height, which was kinda scary, and a man who was coaching me from this unknown culture said "it's often that way with people who are alone. are your people mostly alone?" but i found i could also zoom in on the landscape below and take a close view of things as i descended. this enabled me to see some cool forgotten buildings. in one view i was able to see one of those stealth fighters flying below me, not too far from a man riding through farmland on a bike who was obviously oblivious to it. i realized this would be a great tool for finding locations for films. then i woke up.
tuesday evening i went to hg and ate bigos. all his children were there. they were discussing a film one of them had made in which we listen to a conversation of sheep in a sheep fold. i didn't last long, they sent me home in a taxi. wednesday evening i went to nantko. lasted a bit longer. irish stew, great irish bread from noordermarkt, and cheeses, and some maroccan dish he had cooked in an earthenware vessel resembling a volcano (can't remember what they called it).
i kinda got lost on the way there and kinda got lost again on the way home.
