It’s difficult to write with liquorice while skydiving

January 22nd, 2014 at 06:22am

I had a rather odd dream yesterday that I decided to go skydiving before work. Skydiving in this instance could be done from a private airstrip in Fyshwick, but because I was a bit short on time I decided to park in Woden and walk to Fyshwick (how this is quick in any way is beyond me) as the wind was blowing in that direction and if I was to start a skydive over Fyshwick I would land in Woden.

After parking I came across a mobile phone on the ground. Upon examination it turned out to be the phone which was stolen from me in 2009 and I decided to take it to the police station for forensic examination, but due to time constraints decided to do so after my skydive.

Due to a quirk in dream geography, I merely had to walk through a park to get to Fyshwick. Before long I was airborne but the whole process of returning to land was taking too long. Due to the wind rushing past I could not vocally advise people that I needed to return to land faster, so I reached in to my pocket and got out some liquorice sticks and started to spell out “I have to go to work”, but the wind prevented any of the liquorice from staying still. One of the supervisors of the skydiving misunderstood my message and put me parachute in reverse, which caused me to start ascending. Before I knew it, I was over Hobart (which looked suspiciously like Mount Ainslie with buildings on it) which was OK as I knew of a shortcut tunnel in Hobart which would get me back to Canberra with a five minute stroll…the only problem was that I couldn’t figure out how to land and continued to ascend.

The dream ended there, so I’m not sure if I ever did manage to land or get to work. The way things were going though, I wouldn’t be surprised if I ended up flying all the way around the world before getting to work.

    All I can say is subconscious weirdness must be triggered off in those about to travel. This was my dream from last night:

    I was flying from Hawaii to another island in the Pacific, but when I landed I realised I was at Auckland airport, although I couldn’t physically tell it was Auckland (when you dream you just ‘know’ these things). The runway went downhill and then back up again. I was progressing down this runway in the plane from Hawaii and I noticed aeroplanes parked off the side of the runway as if they had a 45-degree angle parking rule, but they weren’t parked, instead they were instructed to vacate the runway quickly as my plane had priority. Right at the end of the runway was a large garage where planespotters could sit and watch all the goings-on. This was where my plane deposited me. There was a gathering of us in this garage and it was suddenly evening and instead of watching planes, we were watching a film in German with English subtitles. It seemed to be a catered event with staff walking around with trays of food. I’m not sure how the movie ended because I then woke up. This was one of my more sedate dreams. Quite enjoyable, nonetheless!

    I have often been intrigued by the innate knowledge which comes in dreams. Often this knowledge is of a location, but on occasion it can be of utter gibberish (such as knowing that a blender can be pulled apart and reassembled to make a Boeing 747). I quite enjoy some of this peculiar knowledge.

    I like the unexplained time change in your dream. Some of the best plot advancements in dreams come from such abrupt time changes.

    I hope the film was good.
