I had a series of linked dreams last night involving transformative magic. There was a lot of mind-of-Jay metaphor with old pickup trucks in the woods, and open bags of Oreos, as well as search-and-rescue teams in New Mexico, but I knew what it meant. Which is amusing, given my own hard-headed empiricism when it comes to New Age topics and such like. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say someone out there was performing a Working for me.

At any rate, I woke feeling a bit better about things than I have the past few days. It seems odd to take comfort from something I don’t believe in to start with, especially through the fragmented lens of dreaming, but there you have it.

Back in the waking world, [info]the_child turns fourteen tomorrow. Her kid party is tonight, including a trip to Fright Town for her and some of her friends. She’s got a Halloween party to go to tomorrow on her actual birthday. Sunday is her family party.

So I dream of pickup trucks while my daughter turns her personal odometer. Life does go on.

Despite my skepticism, I'll take a Working if people are handing them out; the last few days I've felt like I've been getting worse instead of better, and the despair from that feeling is frightening. Do. Not. Want.

You bring up Oreos and fail to mention Crystal Burgers? Really? To this I say... "NE GET OFF HERE PAS!"
