Been a While

So, yeah, like the title says, it has been a while since I've posted anything here. That's partly because of my other online social networking accounts, but also because I'm just finding I have less patience for sitting and posting on here. I figured I would pop on and do something, though, since I've left it to flounder for something like 2 months.

Since coming back from Ottawa I had this really strange dream which may or may not be slightly influenced by being at the National Gallery only days before. It was this weird amalgam of a Jacob's Ladder type surreal experience with a They Live like twist for flavour.

I was in this enormous gallery/mall where there were doors on certain levels that would take you to another dimension where everything was red or everything was blue or yellow exclusively, and each colour would correlate to a behaviour or mood. Red being aggressive, maybe yellow was passive or cowardly, I don't know what the rest were anymore. So, occasionally a person would slip through accidentally and they would be prized by the denizens of these alternate worlds because they wanted to use the openings that you accidentally created to slip through into our world and take your place.

I remember there was this large open area, like an arcade or square, that was enclosed in glass. There were these giant dancing female creatures with crazy twisted/monstrous features which I think only I could see. This may or may not have been an effect of what eventually led me to the other world or not. Possibly a precursor of the walls breaking down, or something. Now that I think about it, the gallery art and certain details would change as well depending on the world you were in.

I somehow slipped into the red world and everyone there had transparent skin so you could see the musculature and bones and eyeballs underneath. They knew that I was wrong when I reacted to their appearance. I'm guessing if I kept my cool thay might not have clued in but they ended up chasing me, trying to capture me, before I could get back to where I came from.

Sounds kind of silly typing it up but it was pretty weird and discomforting while I was in the dream.

Maybe there's a story there.

Anyway, that's perhaps not what one might expect from a comeback post but that is what I have got, so...

Take care and we'll see you later!
