We played at a student party in Kuopio, a smallish town in Finland and the audience didn't seem to be too interested in us.

I think those dreams are my subconscious mind getting ready for challenging performance situations, which are unavoidable in real life.]]>

Another recurring one is that I'm back at a former workplace - usually when I worked in the NHS - and I'm trying to write this really neat program but I can never find a free desk or terminal, or I have to leave my desk and when I come back it's moved or occupied.]]>

Last night included:
1) setting up a display of my favorite personal knick-knacks (all fictional) in a knick-knack store next to the cash register, so people could see them, only to realize that I had to leave for some urgent reason and people would probably think they were for sale and buy them, but there was no choice but to risk it.
2) Deciding to park the car in the lower lot of the grocery store, because it was New Years Eve and that way I would be able to get out easily, except when I arrived the western side of the lot was being used for a candle-lit silent meditation on the sunset, except that's where I had to pull in, and of course the brakes were really dream-soft and I was pressing them desperately to the floor trying not to run into the candles or the hundreds of meditators. The car kept ending up rolling into crooked positions, so I had to keep backing out and re-parking, and each time I rolled dangerously close to setting a fire by knocking over the forest of fancy candles or irritating the meditators by running a car near their spot.
3) Going to fix dinner in the study of a house I was staying at (which is where the hotel-style fridge full of olives, chocolate and other snacks was), but just as I was setting the food out on the desk the homeowner decided to change a lightbulb above the desk, so I had to put everything away, and then he asked me and his wife to go find a 13 foot step ladder in the basement so he could reach the bulb, but of the dozens of ladders in the basement all of them were 11 foot.

That's all I remember at the moment. I was thinking that people's incompetence dreams would make a very funny illustrated book, cartoon series or art project. Only because they are so universal and so humorous. I'd love to hear your favorites, recent or old.]]>

This topic may have caused me to have unsettling dreams. These dreams (and mental images) are of my father as he died in the hospital. This is not a fear of death kind of thing but a fear of not having taken the right action kind of thing. This has been gnawing at me for over two years now.

That makes sense, given what you told us. I imagine I'd feel similarly.

I regret a lot of things around my dad's death. Were it happening today I'd make many different decisions, especially spending more time with him and getting less tangled up in the nasty little dramas that spun out around him in the rest of the family.]]>
