This Is All of Me #5: Backpack Growl

backpack growl, originally uploaded by jonleesparky.

I am the convention leader for a parade of school kids. They are following me so I start the parade by flexing all my muscles and growling at them. They all growl back and the parade begins.

It's more like a race. Hundreds of kids piling together and running. We get to some steep steps. I help some of them down as we continue to growl.

When I look up, two kids have thrown their backpacks into my belly. It hurts. Then we sit down on the grass.

This Is All of Me #4

annoying meme, originally uploaded by jonleesparky.

I am having a crazy repetitive never ending dream of a multisensory but scary internet meme wherein I am walking into a dark alley way and just about to leave when I am stuck up by ball point pen by a man that brings me into a room and benignly maligns me. Annoying.

This Is All of Me #3

I am visiting with a zombie who is a Theraveda monk who makes wine. I'm shocked to learn zombie wine is so good. And double shocked to find out the zombie was stripped ofhis robes after beginning to make wine.

This Is All of Me #2

I unexpectedly find myself part of an investigation to find a serial murderer.

After receiving a sensitive note and previous letters showing proof of his whereabouts, I know who he is, and where he is. And I'm scared.

The police chief seems to be fine with having me keep these highly sensitive documents in my hotel room where I found them originally. I disagree, and insist on putting them in the safe. He agrees and says that that's what he would do.

What strikes me strange is why he didn't offer that in the first place.

I'm dreaming of a stage performance comprised of a woman playing my grandmother. She is shorter and younger and doesn't act anything like her. My real grandfather is there. And my father. She is spunky. And she jumps into my father's arms.

At some point, the dream transitions to me being in the audience and one of the actors I knew from high school comes out in a wolf suit. But you can see the t-shirt and tighty whities he is wearing on underneath the suit. It must be made of pantyhose material. His face is covered by a wolf's head. It's obvious he put this suit on last minute. There is an unidentifiable person/woman on stage with him. He begins to exaggeratedly shimmy and shake around her. Almost as if he is preparing to sacrifice her.

Then I remember I had planned breakfast at 8am with Adam. And I wake up. Feel the wine from last night. And go into the bathroom.

I'm in between arriving and leaving. When people look at me, particularly my students, I think they see someone who's composed. Someone who knows. And when I see them, I think the same thing.
