Last night after coming home from seeing "The Rite" I had a long, odd, somewhat scary, but surprisingly beautiful dream about demons. The fact that, due to vet classes, reproduction, and specifically placentas, has been a major topic of conversation among my friends meant that the dream had a lot to do with finding the perfect woman for the demons to impregnate to further their cause of spreading evil. "The Rite" was also largely about a possessed pregnant girl, so I'm sure that added to it as well.
So the dream focused on a man (who looked suspiciously like the main character from the movie) who was trying to save the woman he loved from the demons. It was mostly in third person, but every now and then I would become the man. I won't go into all the details, but it involved a lot of running, a ballet performance, falling down a never ending hole into the universe/the heavens/outerspace, demon rituls, and clouds/galaxies/stars swirling above me to form a horrible demon face which spoke. The unfortunate part is that I woke up before I could find out how it ended. Very dissatisfying. Try as I might, I couldn't make myself fall back asleep and re-enter the dream.
At one point, I either achieved lucidity, or maybe just dreamed that I did. As I was sent falling down the giant pit, it occurred to me that I could change the dream if I wanted. I could make myself being flying instead. For a moment the dream changed and I was falling and then starting to fly in a bright blue sky. Then I decided I wanted to finish the dream, so I was back to the dark pit crazily swirling around me. Maybe that was a step forward in my lucid dreaming endeavors. I don't really know.
I really wish I could create a picture to capture the beautiful parts of the dream, but there's no way I could do justice to what my mind is capable of creating.
Crap, I really need to get you guys a funny comic/cartoon thing. I guess I'm having a dry spell. Sorry you're stuck reading my actual thoughts instead. Not as fun.
Well that's all for now. See ya later alligator!
