i was flying over some landscape.  “look, you can see the manatees!” someone yelled.  i peered out the passenger window and saw below various factories and warehouses topped with giant moving manatees, some the size of a bus.  they were made out of polyethylene, or something like it, since they were all entirely translucent white.  they floated like friendly dirigibles or clouds.

my plane progressed further into the city.  we were flying between skyscrapers now.  the plane took sudden turns and banked sharply with no warning or apparent reason.  everyone stayed calm, but inside i felt a bit of concern.  looking out the window i saw structures passing close to the plane, and i wondered if the pilot was either a daredevil or if something was really wrong.  then my eyes were outside of the plane and in my mind i had a first-person view of the plane plummeting rapidly towards the ground.  and then we were all dead.

i woke up within the dream.  i was in a familiar room with a familiar friend.  i sat down at a desk, took out a piece of paper, and began writing.  i was telling my parents what being dead was like.  i think i told them that so far it wasn’t that different from being alive.  but i knew it would be very different, because i could only be in this place for a little while.  i woke up before i had to leave and go to the place where dead people stay forever, whatever that place is.

the eyes of mia farrow

i was at an amusement park, following some friends into a large building.  the inner atrium was full of glass and leafy plants.  we walked through the atrium along a ramp that climbed up for a while.  i noticed hanging above me a large mobile of strange objects.  they were insects, about five in all.  the insects dangling precariously from the mobile were alive and waved their antennae, tasting the air around them.  they were also abnormally large, some as big as my hand, one about three feet long.  there was a green katydid, two praying mantises, a small pink grasshopper, and a locust as big as my leg, with an exoskeleton that shimmered in a sparking blue color.  i pulled out my camera and stood there taking all kinds of pictures of the blue locust.

my friends had gone ahead of me so i had to catch up.  the ramp ended at the bottom of an ascending staircase.  i looked up and i saw a girl standing at the mezzanine level far above me.  she was slowly pacing back and forth, and did not seem to notice that i was there.  i took out my camera and started taking pictures of her face.  i took pictures from many different angles.  finally, she turned to face me, and i had the perfect shot.  i stood there motionless, making sure all the settings were right, when i noticed that she looked like mia farrow.  the instant i pressed the shutter button, her eyes lit up in a dull blue color, and with a crunching sound my camera broke.

new black color

i discovered a pigment that, when mixed into a paint, was the darkest black known.  at all angles, one could not see a sheen or tint of any kind, it was pure darkness, completely absent of light.  i think i was putting it on everything to see how it changed the appearance of objects, but the thing i remember most was a dress someone made from fabric dyed in this new black color.  no one wore it, there was just this image of the dress floating in my mind, but now i’m thinking, would the woman wearing this dress look like a floating head?

the last thing i remember was that i was looking on the internet.  i searched “david lynch” and the first search result was a craigslist ad for his bed.  i woke up before i clicked on the link.
