fish in the sea

This is for Friday night/Saturday morning’s almost 14 hours of sleep that I got. At one point I was watching a thing about the sea and I was pretty much seeing it as if I were there; I was on and then in the ocean swimming through it, and I saw beautiful schools of mid-size fish, as well as maybe some sharks, maybe whales, but at any rate larger shadowy creatures. Later I was in Maine with my parents and one place was the inside of what seemed somewhat like a fire station, with some offices off a small corridor and a drop ceiling and stuff, and also we were outside at one point at an enclave cleared out of the woods, and there were several people around, around picnic tables; it was a brisk, sunny, late-fall forenoon, with the sun higher in the sky than would IRL be possible at that time of year. After that we were back in Hancock (though it may have been understood as STL) and it was a muggy summer afternoon; I unlocked the front door from inside and relocked it and found that the keys could easily get stuck in the lock system, which was more like an open cylindrical canister with a thin metal coil inside. Eventually I was able to retrieve the keys. The last thing I can recall is finding some jewelry that I had been working on far earlier, near my bed (with my room being different than IRL; in fact I can’t seem to trace what RL room(s) could have affected the layout of this room).


12.5 h sleep: I was riding around various places in warm weather with some studiomates as well as Bill and Hillary in a low black car of Bill’s that nevertheless had 3 rows of seats. It was a good time getting to know them in a casual setting over the course of a day. I don’t remember feeling awkward in their presence about the fact that I now support Obama. At one point (this might not have been with them) I and some family members or acquaintances or something were at a built-up area along the Atlantic (I think) shore and there was a long boardwalk running perpendicular to the coastline, which had some kind of big maybe mall on the north side and some buildings that looked like ocean liners (Corbu would have approved, maybe) on the south side, partially in the water.


I was traveling around on highways in mountainous places, at one point in evening twilight, maybe in NY or PA or also New England, and I was looking on maps several times and noticed that multiple mountain ranges had been named after Siouxsie and the Banshees.
