the dreamers

After nearly 5 years of having this journal and observing my friends list I've noticed a pattern: Many of you often have dreams on the same night, on the same cycle. The dreams you post about are usually nightmares or anxiety-ridden and men and women tend to dreampost at different times of the month. The dreamers also tend to be on the same continent. I wonder if it has to do with lunar cycles? Just something I've pondered on for a long while now.

I haven't remembered any dreams recently. Currently I'm self-medicating insomnia with the new Robert Rich album Echo of Small Things and a cup of chamomile tea.
Current Music:
Robert Rich - Glint In Her Eyes

I've noticed it too. No explanation other than the general interconnectedness of things. Listening to artists like Robert Rich definitely helps the connections vividly stand out in full contrast.

I like this photo very much, Nomi...it's just lovely.

...as for dreams....well, it's so rare that I wake up remembering one, but now that I read this I will make note of the moon phases...see if they are cyclical in any way.

Thank you, jaarronn. :)

I used to keep a dream journal, but I remember so few these days that the entries are sparse.

Your photo makes me want to have a Japanese tea ceremony and feel the blossoms as they rain down.

The cherry blossom season is so short, but watching them rain down was incredible.. carpets of blossoms everywhere.

I finally decided to post about it after 5 people on my friends list all posted about their dreams yesterday.. all male and all on the East Coast. Most of my f-list don't post about dreams often, it seems to come in batches.

i had weird dreams that night as well...was going to post about them...then checked El Jay and saw that everyone else already posted something about having weird dreams that night as well...so for the sake of being "different" decided to hold off posting about them.

We seem to be on the same page this week.

Honestly, though my dreams may seem so, they are hardly nightmares, even the awful ones.

Dreaming about going blind is my idea of a nightmare, but I guess that's just me.

Funny you should mention that - I also had a disturbing dream the other night and I, too, am on the East Coast. Weird.

On Echo of Small Things inducing sleep - is that a good thing or bad? Of course, given that Robert Rich has held "sleep" concerts, I guess that might not be bad. His last couple of CD's did nothing for me though.

I had two bad dreams last night — first, that I found I had stomach cancer and was about to die; then later, one where I found out I didn't actually have cancer, and called the doctor excitedly to tell him, and he said "I can't talk now, turn on the radio, there's a nuclear war starting..."

By coincidence I'm listening to Robert Rich now — "Hayagriva". How is his new album? I'll check out the snippets on his website after this is over. I only like some of his music; generally how much I like it corresponds to how much like "Trances & Drones" it sounds ;-)

I'm sorry you're not sleeping well. My sleep is OK of late, but this is dependent [sic] on my taking a Benadryl every night. I tried to wean myself down to half a pill, a few weeks ago, but slept badly for days and and gave up. I'm wondering whether this new Lunesta™ stuff would be better...

Those are both horrible dreams! It seems whenever I have nightmares they ended up being premonitory (and I'm not even sure I believe in premonitory dreams).

I love Rich's new album.. not sure if you've listened to it yet, there are hints of Trances/Drones in it.

I'm sorry you have to rely on Benadryl every night to sleep, I absolutely hate depending on any drug to function "normally". I've been sleeping better since the sunny weather has started up. I'm getting more exercise which tires me out and more exposure to light seems to have reset my internal clock.
