Strange night, I fell asleep early & then woke up unable to sleep from 3am on. I dreamed that I was driving back from somewhere far away, driving back to Lincoln in order to reach campus just in time to get to class & teach. It was going to be close. I don't know where I was coming from or why, but it was the kind of situation that required me to be doing this kind of ridiculous trip.
Suddenly I realized that I had blacked out along the drive. I came to awareness beside a river, no idea where. My shirt was covered in blood. The blood had come out of my mouth. The water was cold, so cold my hands were numb. The shadows hung like wet flesh beneath the canopy of trees.
It was a very psychological dream, pitched inside my head, rather than in the visuals. Those are the scariest kind. The mind seems to be working out some kind of potential strategies.
