Dreaming the Future, part II

A couple nights ago I had a dream about my friend and dance partner Jessica. I haven't seen her for probably a year, and it's been far too long since I've sent her an email or anything. Anyway, the gist of my dream is that she came back to the Bay Area and I was very glad to see her and to get a chance to dance with her again.

However, the really interesting thing about the dream happened after I woke up. It occurred to me that I really ought to write to her, see how she's doing and all that. I kept reminding myself to do that all day yesterday, though I never quite got around to it (busy day). So I was going to do it for real today, but guess what I found in my inbox this afternoon? An email from Jessica, completely out of the blue, saying she'll be back in the area for the summer and asking if I'd like to sign up for Waltz Weekend with her. Wow.

I think this is probably a good example to go along with my previous dream post, concerning knowledge of the future. A dream like this seems rather like a prediction of the future, or would have, if I had been trying to interpret it that way. But really, it's mostly present knowledge. Since it was only two nights ago, I'm sure Jessica already knew she'd be up here for the summer, and she most likely was already thinking about Waltz Weekend, and realizing it was full for women so she would need a partner to register. So that information existed already, though the question still remains of how exactly it got to me.

All I can say is, planetary alignment or whatever, there's definitely some sort of dream energy going around these days.

I see sets of events that occur right after the dreams and in the dream time. Most of these dreams have to do with water/floods and other natural changes.
