intense dream with rice
early saturday morning i had a dream that lots of rice was falling from the sky.
the dream started when roger and i went to the scene of some terrible transport accident to find my ex girlfriend, who i feared had been killed ... we went down some stairs to where the victims had been lined up on the hillside. i was very sad when we got down there, to find that yes it was my sweetheart who had been killed, and had lost both legs too. i didn't get a good look at the body, and roger wasn't totally clear about what he saw, but my understanding that my beloved was gone forever, and i was sad.
then all this rice was falling, like fallout from a volcano of rice. but it was also a huge ship of rice docked at the port. it had arrived and would keep everyone from starving.
the rice was coming down hard and we had to get out of there before we got buried. before the cars could no longer drive through the accumulating rice. roger jumped in the driver's seat and i jumped in the back. the people running around all had guns. roger told me to open the door for this woman running toward us with a rifle, and i hoped it would be the climactic movie moment when i was wrong and my sweetheart was still alive, but the woman was someone i didn't recognize.
then i woke.
