I almost didn’t go back to sleep after my 3 a.m. waking. I’m glad I did. My R.E.M. (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep yielded me a new dream friend, whom I hope to meet again soon. Braunj does not identify as a man nor as a woman. Braunj has one eye, the other covered by colorful cloth. That eye is able to twist and turn in its socket to see quite a bit. I noticed also that Braunj has only one breast; a woman’s breast dead center of the chest.
Braunj had made me a costume for my performance. It consisted of felt green coverall with built-in snow boots. My act, concocted by Braunj and his friends, who all seemed to be circus performers, was to travel high in a rollercoaster. I’m not sure of the rest, but I completely trusted my new friends. In fact, despite an unusual appearence, Braunj conveyed the deepest friendship to me, with a depth rarely found in dream characters. There was a lot of other activity in this dream. I seem to be entering whole worlds each R.E.M. period, mostly peopled with the nicest folk you’d ever care to meet. As news from the waking world continues to disappoint, I appreciate that good news from the dreaming world is on the upswing.
