lucid dreaming: shopping with mom, it's crowded and she cuts through everyone in front of me and disappears, i go the wrong way and she finds me and sends me on a mission. having to go around the giant building to check bags and it's a huge complex filled with odd stores and with a definite feeling of abandonment. i can't find helpful signs. my phone is in the trunk of the car and i'm stuck, "like when you're dreaming" i think to myself
and i lose my shopping cart after leaving it to explore for a minute. i search for it eventually finding that the ground's sloped and it's rolled over a ledge and fallen to the floor below, landing upside down on its contents (including a pizza box).
i eventually give up and trying running back around, cursing loudly and inappropriately as i'm acutely aware of a woman and her small boy as i pass them.
there's a road i need to follow, i remember it from the way there, a bit steep and covered in loose gravel so i launch myself and surf the loose stones until i arrive at a giant red-painted wooden building that i need to climb - the wood pokes out in an interesting design and i climb really quickly, practically running up the side until i get stuck halfway. i manage to ignore my fear of heights and realize that the wood is special, my shoes have a great grip, and i just manage to pull myself over a tricky bit and i'm standing on the ledge of someone's balcony, there's an unstable cupboard with a couple of artifacts in it that i meed to transfer my weight correctly into. "i can do that", i step gingerly in, one foot then the other, placing them carefully. the cupboard begins to tip towards to edge but i manage to stabilize just in time. no time to breathe, i make a bit of noise as i step out and think that nobody who lives this high up would be worried about burglars. i turn to face the door and there's a cat quietly staring at me... and behind the cat a fairly large black dog lying on his belly, kind of like a german shepherd and with a marvellous underbite exposing his tongue and most of his lower teeth. i hold out my palm in friendship and he allows me to pet him before i wake up.
a good morning, slow, finishing signal to noise and blown away by it
