Dream, September 26, 2011 truncated people and things


Dreams, home, 4:00 am through 5:55 am

Conflicting twins. One is a little too good, while the other is a little too bad. Both look a little too much like me.

Passing through a doorway, I must pause as a woman who has been reduced to a head and shoulders scoots her way across the threshold. Her hair is black and her nose is thin and sharp. Her eyes stare up at me unblinking. She is unable to speak, while I am unable to think of anything appropriate to say.

A rain gutter. I had seen it earlier channeling clear water over a climbing bush of vines that had overtaken a fence. Now it lays in the yard, the victim of powerful winds – repairing it is a job for others. I do not have the desire or the skill to rehang it. Years ago, someone had decorated the gutter with rosemaling, now the paint is flaking away.
