Accidental Tourist

Ok. I had wandered to a place as a tourist. It was a society of people, I was there to help with some kind of repairs. Of course I can't remember what the repairs were about. I was with a team, but I was the only woman. For some reason I got separated from the others, and that is always when it gets weird right?

This was a semi religious community. The women were subservient. They had chores to do, and were a valid part of the society. But they were subjected to some seriously degrading things as well, that I won't go into here. I remember having to come up with excuses for why I didn't have to participate in these activities. I came across a few of the men that found this kind of treatment appalling, and were trying to figure out how to change things. In a particular scene, I remember one of the men spilling some of the water, and when another of these men walked by, he sank into the carpet and was stuck. That was a particularly strong image.

I am having a hard time remembering the rest of it. I woke up thinking, there is something wrong with me. Why do I feel so singled out and put upon? Geez...

Something is probably going to happen today that will bring this into a more clear focus for me. I really hope so.

Last night I was in that place between waking and sleep. and I was seeing underwater images as clear as if they were on TV. Most of the time my dreams are fuzzy, like I am seeing without my glasses. I remember thinking, look how clear this is!

Too bad it wasn't about lottery numbers or buried treasure. But If i could capture images that well, i wouldn't have to worry about money.

more to come.
