Dream Log 1

Last night I had the most mystic dream of magic and wonder. And it just makes my weekend ten times even better.

The image that I remember most vividly is I was, in my dream, flying over a large landscape of plateau or scottish valleys/lands of some sort at quiet dark night (nothing, nobody, just landscape), and in front of me there is a cliff; on the top of the cliff there is a small cottage covered fully by forest green ivy, and it is so high above the rest of the world. The cliff is so tall that nothing can been seen from above where it is at, except quietness and vastness of the plain: full of Harry Potter movie feelings.

Then in my dream I flew to the front of the cliff facing the cottage window: it is as if time is reversing around that cottage, the shattered glasses hovering in the air are growing/getting back to where there were before on the window, and the whole process is like slow-motion plus time-lapse, super beautiful and magical. But everything else in the landscape is at normal time speed yet something mystic and epic is happening in that somewhat scottish/harrypotterish landscape.

And then, like watching a movie, I saw a huge opening title “Happy Potter and blah blah blah” appear just the way the glasses were growing back to the window.

Wicked. I must have been watching too much vimeo time-lapse videos. And there are many other epic things going on in the rest of the dream, but this is the only part I can recall quite vividly now. They may comeback to me anytime later (it happens a lot) hahaha.

Before Christmas, Hilo, Hawaii

Akaka Falls

The trees just stand there, yet I could feel they are so much alive. All was quite, only thing you can hear is the sound of wind blowing through the leaves.

All the tranquility reminds me of a joyful afternoon spent in a garden near my Grandparent’s house at my hometown when I was very little; or maybe a tiny evening adventure with my school best friends exploring the “undiscovered” city corners after school/when the parents are out ;). I was thinking: all the time we adults keep searching for happiness when we feel dreaded and worn by the city life, may be we just forgot to simply look around, or just take a step out of our comfort zones, or the cages built in our own minds in a city life of routines – we came from nature, yet we have kept ourselves further away from it.

So, where does this lead to?

The Beach!

About an hour later, the weather got better and the sun came up 🙂

Into the sea at dusk. The waves were quite choppy that day.

Do not fear

Although I am not a very religious person considering the religious undertone suggested by the maker of this film in video description on Vimeo, it rather reminds me of the underlying philosophy of rock/mountain climbing.
