At the end of my street is a woodland that ends in bluffs overlooking a lake. On one end one can see the towers of Folsom Prison. If you walk a bit down the trail you can see the Mormon Temple. At night it looks like the Eifel Tower in Paris.
Most Vampires avoid both prisons and churches (I use that term for all places of worship.)
If we go in a church we’re usually drawn in by the music, hiding out or drawn in by someone of strong will.
I had a dream that my friend Amelia and I were inside of the Mormon Temple exploring on our own. I’ve been there so I have a visual, but I wasn’t exploring the first time – the real-time. I was on a tour, as a guest, when the building first opened (another story for another time.)
It was lovely and a bit confusing. I have to admit that I like exploring old Catholic churches full of statues of saints the best. Of course the ultimate is getting into the hidden areas of the Vatican. Oh have I got stories for you about that. Dan Brown – give me a call if you’re reading this. Yes, Vampires love the Vatican.
Amelia has always been the explorer – more than most Vampires. Granted we go in and out of buildings and places as we more or less please, but Amelia is the master. Name a place and she has been there, unseen. No, really, name a restricted place. Amelia has been there. Ask her about the Knights Templars. I dare you.
But my adventure was just a dream, however real it seemed.
For some reason, when schedules change, I dream vivid dreams. I can’t sleep either.
My brother Max came this morning at 3:00 a.m. and picked up my kids for a trip to the coast. Just the weekend, but I couldn’t sleep, except to have strange dreams. Granted my sleep schedule is already messed up. You know, people think being a Vampire is easy but it isn’t. Not at all.
So that got me to thinking about the meaning of dreams. And that led to a list.
Vampire Maman’s Guide to Dream Interpretation
What you dream about and what it means (in italics.)
Cats: Something good is about to happen.
Blood: Either you’re thirsty or somebody is in big trouble.
Church outside: You are utterly alone.
Church inside: Feeling caution.
Driving: Trying to resolve childhood issues.
Driving fast: Trying to resolve adult issues.
Vanishing road: You are afraid of everything and feeling out of control.
Airplanes: Black crows or grackles.
Wolves: Sex with someone you don’t really like but are attracted to.

Sex with a stranger: Unresolved issues with disappointment.

Orange: A longing for Halloween.
Political conversations: You’re truly sick and need help.
Broken glass: Broken dreams and self loathing.
Bats: Feeling of being both cute and ugly at the same time.
Train travel: Sex.
Childhood: The need for cake. Maybe pie. Cookies will do in a pinch.
Militant Vegans: Small barking dogs.
Roses: Beauty and pain.
Beer: Fear of hot weather.
Witches: You are being watched.
To be perfectly honest with you, I don’t believe in dream interpretation but please, go ahead and study my list. I’m concerned for the well-being of all and want everyone to feel good. Yes, look into my eyes. See the hazel waves of the ocean lulling you into relaxation. You’re in your happy spot. You feel calm. You feel the cool ocean breeze surround you in love. You want my teeth on your neck. Relax, close your eyes, sleep and when you wake… I will be gone.
