The Snapping Of Pale Jaws...
Like almost everyone, occasionally I have what could be called "big dreams"
- dreams that overshadow everyday nighttime dreams- stories that repeat over and over, slightly different each time, yet still so powerful and provoking that you easily remember them. I often have dreams about Orca whales. (I have no idea why, other than my being impressed that they are such amazing alpha predators, until we make them clowns at Sea World. I don't feel a strong coonection to them otherwise) In my dream, the whales are twice as large as in real life, and I often see them very very close to the shore, or the wharf, or seawall. The effect of seeing these creatures in my dream is that of astounding awe, and frightened reverence. They are utterly spellbinding, slightly dangerous, and very close...though no one has been hurt by them in any dream. I think they must symbolize a deep rooted need for spiritual awe, a replacement for the usual concept of God that I can't rally with. Anyway- last night dreams involved me seeing the whales through a sandy beach access path. People were in the water trying to get close to the colossal creatures, when a huge grey porpoise-like creature leap from the surf and swallowed a guy. Dumbstruck, I thought "this isnt supposed to happen!", I woke in a sweat.
I don't really go in for prophetic dreams, but I surely wonder about this one.
