I’ve been given some very odd dreams lately. The realm my sleeping mind has occupied has been weird and uncharacteristically rich. I recently issued a series of tweets describing a dream in which Google annexed the moon (like, our moon) and announced the acquisition on cable television at 2 a.m.
The waves of the ocean glowed with sparkles of a fantasy. As they splashed ashore under @google‘s moon, they seemed to sing in Major chords.

It was a cool dream. I think I’m going to write a short story from it. Colors featured prominently in it — the moon was orange, but everything else felt blue and silver — and, just, what’s cooler than such a vivid, emotionally jarring scenario like that? The most potent part of the dream was really that when I woke up, I felt that I wouldn’t be surprised if Google really did take the moon one day. THey could.
This wasn’t the only recent dream that I emerged from not knowing if it was real or not. The other night, maybe Saturday night, I dreamt of an illicit love affair I’ve longed for for years now. Shit was coming to a head, emotionally and physically, and we were at some kind of ultimatum. I didn’t know what choice to make. It was like the choice between marriage or ending it altogether — one extreme, or the other.
Amazingly enough, a friend came to me a few days later asking for advice on a very similar situation. Except his isn’t a dream.
So maybe Google really will take the moon soon.
Here’s hoping for much more weirdness tonight. My brain is awesome and I love the things it tells me.
What’s the weirdest dream you’ve ever had?
