Just in case
Dream this morning was unusually specific and had a great big asterisk on it. Writing it down in case of prophecy, and also to get it out of my mind. Writing scary things sucks them out of neurons, through the hand, onto the "paper".
I was arriving home from a business trip on the train. (Huh? I haven't taken a business trip since 1998, and haven't been on a train since 1970.) Drove home from the train station in a generic car with a generic passenger in the car. As I drove north on G street from NW Blvd to Wellesley, I realized that all the trees were knocked down. The street was exactly up-to-date, complete with crunched asphalt and potholes. The houses along the street were also accurate. The trees were exaggerated, about 12 feet in diameter. They hadn't been squashed by a windstorm; instead they had been intentionally taken down as a preventive measure. Many of them still had giant saws and giant drills sticking out in various ways.
Most likely this was a backwash from yesterday's thinking
about windstorms and preventive tree-cutting. But the unusual accuracy makes me wonder. Normally cars and people are accurate, and locations are either generic or original.
Later: Figured out a connection. The train came from tornados. I had noticed this news item
about storm-chasers creating a huge memorial to an actor who starred in the movie 'Twister'. They spelled out his initials on a GPS map by (at least partly) driving to locations across Kansas and Okla, centered on Wakita where the movie was filmed. Neat idea; would have been neater if ALL of them had driven instead of faking the locations with software. In the '70s Wakita was the nearest Amtrak stop to Enid. I drove to Wakita several times to pick up friends from the train. Presumably the dream-scripter filled in a business trip as a plausible reason for taking the train.
