Out of the Blue

I had a dream that involved a shootout with plastic guns using real bullets, a pointless train trip, and other oddities. Perhaps due to how weird it was I awoke, and called a friend to describe to him what happened. While I was on the phone I wandered outside and the landscape was all haystacks sprouting giant (house-sized) mushrooms in a Van Gogh-style color scheme. It immediately struck me that I was actually still dreaming, at which point I woke up for real. I don't know how uncommon this is, but it's the first time I've had a double-dream, much less a double lucid dream. It was no double rainbow, but I still found it to be a remarkable experience.

Sure you're not still dreaming? Sounds like Inception to me. I dream vividly most of the time - it's kind of annoying actually, I prefer those dark dreamless sleeps of the just and the dead. Most of them have a real fantastic - in the literal sense of the word - quality to them. They seem utterly real yet I know they aren't. I've dreamt many times over the years that I'm back in Vancouver, except it's more like a megalopolis city of the future with 100 million people - like out of Judge Dredd - surrounded by impossibly tall cliffs, and things of that nature. Yet it all seems perfectly plausible and normal in the context of the dream. Dreams are fucking weird, man.
