#41: “Sadly I never got to Des Moines…”


I was walking from Chicago to Des Moines, Iowa. A great journey east. Yes, it should have been west, but in this geographically confused dream it was most definitely east. It may have even been along the Appalachian Trail. I stopped in some small town to try and look for somewhere to spend the night, and for a postcard. No luck on the postcard, but I found a nice youth hostel. I don’t believe I actually stayed there though. There was a man with a camel-like creature acting as a taxi service to Des Moines, so I took that. I had to hang on to the tail. I kept trying to climb up onto the animal’s back, but the driver kept pushing me back. Apparently the fare was more expensive to ride on it’s back. I decided the extra comfort was worth it, and saw the meter begin to go up at an increased rate. Yeah, the camel-creature had a taxi meter on it. The scenery between Chicago and Des Moines was quite spectacular – think a cross between Mongolia and Arizona. I’m pretty sure the midwest is not like that at all. Sadly I never got to Des Moines, but it was an interesting journey.

  • This blog is an experiment. When I wake up, I immediately write down what I've dreamed, as humans lose memory of most of their dreams within the first minutes of alertness. After doing this for a couple of months, I was left with a very interesting compilation. Rather than publish all of these, I decided it would be more interesting to compile those of many people.
  • Any information that you choose to include is your decision. It is not the responsibility of the blog if your friends figure out whose dream it was. The posts will be anonymous whether you wish your name to be included or not. If you are going to send an e-mail, it would help if you entitle it "Dream". The blog may add links within the text of your e-mail to help people visualize, especially if there is an obscure reference. Scott Donaldson will illustrate select dreams.
  • Tell all your friends! The more people we get in on the experiment, the cooler it will turn out. Once again, submit on the "Submit Your Dreams" page, or the e-mail address to send your dreams to is dreamsofpeople@gmail.com, or you may submit them on the "Submit Your Dreams" page.
