I need a “Steady Dream”: Conscious or night dream

Note: Re-edit of “A Steady Dream. July 28, 2009″

1.   I need a dream.  A steady dream.

A dream that doesn’t change with age,

A dream that doesn’t grow when short on money,

That doesn’t shrink when I’m rich.

2.   I need a dream that won’t die when I hear one pass away,

That doesn’t start all over when I see a newborn open his eyes.

I need a dream steady

While I am not brain dead.

3.   I need a dream that I can act on:

Lest it is forgotten.

A dream to act on everyday,

Even when I’m drunk with sleep.

Lest it is replaced

By a faked dream.

Tidbits and notes posted on FB and Twitter. Part 250

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page of backlog opinions and events is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory

Another night dream. We are 4 persons on that trip, including a female. In my mind, we are traveling in Morocco (I have never been to North Africa). We are to visit a village/city. After many hours in a transportation mean (can’r recall a car or a bus), out of nowhere, a white village appears on a hill. Very pretty from afar.

The 4 of us are walking, the couple ahead of us. The more we walk the further the white village turns out to be.  I says to my companion: “this village looks like my village, but this one is by the sea and ours is red tiled”.

I guess that I heard the village had a university and I can try to find a position and settle for a year. We enter a college in a single building: the students wear uniforms: white shirt, navy trousers and navy tie. Up and down an elevator. I ask my companion why we are here. He said that he is waiting for a contact.

I’m getting bored and decided to go out. I remembered that I don’t carry the national currency, but I will not buy anything: I am going to search for the couple. I stepped out the building and I’m in a closed hall with kiosks and small shops around and also in the middle.

I’m roaming around looking for the couple. And I realized that everything is Dirty: the walls, the floors and the shirts of people. We cannot smell in a dream, but the sight disgusted me hugely. Even the environment outside is a chaos of dirt and burned grass. I had to wake myself up. it is 5 am.

Another night dream. I got my PhD in industrial/Human factors engineering many decades ago. Still, I dream of unfinished dissertation, and can’t hope of ever getting out of my miseries. 

Another night dream. I got out of this hole of a university town many decades ago. Still, I dream of roaming its streets, night clubs, cafe and noticing that shops have changed their businesses, even the post office has been transformed into something else.

Another night dream. I last saw our apartment in Beirut 2 decades ago before we sold it. And yet, I’m roaming the street of our quarter, getting lost and watching grueling scenery, such as crumbling buildings where a few adolescents have repainted it with rainbow color and plenty of lighting. Kind of living in a castle, though the area didn’t suffer much damages from the 13-year civil war. My mind likes to play terrible tricks so that I wake up and went to piss.

Victorine Brocher (1839-1921) wrote in “Une femme dans la Commune de Paris 1871”: Je temoigne afin encore de rendre quelque services aux vaincus (les republicains)

Iran promised to retaliate to the deaths of 4 Iranians by Israeli missiles on T4 airfield in Homs, Syria. When, where and how are questions that are giving terrible nightmares to Israel cabinet and intelligence services.

When you are forced to live on a mountain or a desert environment, all alone, it is inevitable that a time will come when a God tells you in a vision: “Okay, now you may return home”

Consistently, Hezbollah is the only political and social organization in Lebanon that delivers on its promises and execute its decisions. These successes are based on constituting and establishing specialized working “cells” for each program before announcing the event.

Except Hezbollah, most other Lebanon “political parties” are Not social parties: they care less to connect and communicate with citizens. They are mostly attached to a militia/mafia “leader”, sort of romancing the “Glorious Past” of the civil war

Two ancient political parties are ideological (of the 20’s), but they failed to make a dent in Lebanon political structure in the last 70 years

Any potential deputies who is reluctant to back Hezbollah’s war on militias highway robbers of the State revenues “fassaad” is Not my candidate.

Al Tayyar (the party of the current President of the Republic Michel Aoun)is doing his best to deliver on promises, but has been burning steps and getting entangled in side shows. Their motto in this election is “Back the President of the Republic” (da3m al 3ahed) in order to side step the confusion in convincing voters.

The Tayyar is the only party that successfully ran 5 democratic elections within the party in the last 3 years

 

I had a night dream. Tried to interpret it

I had a night dream. We are in the middle of the semester. This university prof. is asking me a question during class. He spoke quickly and I couldn’t hear the last words.

I asked him to repeat the question and he didn’t raise the volume of his voice.

I asked him again to repeat the question to the astonishment of the students and the flabbergasted prof.

And I ‘m closing and opening my ears with both hands as if my ears were shut close. I suspected he was saying ” How do you feel about this course” but was not sure and I says: “Fine. I like it when you invite me to the blackboard”.

I had to force myself wide awake to interpret this dream.

Most probably, a few experience high blood pressure when under stress and literally can’t hear.

In my case, a combination of blood tension and a question “out of context or subject matter” exacerbated the situation.

Most would faint as a reaction in these kinds of conditions to avoid a sense of shame.

Does this dream telling me that I’m a strong minded and confident guy to dare express honestly my lack of hearing the question repeatedly?
