Maze, Fire, The Shining.

Last night I had a dream, as per usual.  But this dream was unlike my other dreams.  I’ll try to remember the best that I can, which is almost impossible to do, most certainly with dreams.  I just woke up so as I type I’ll slowly be forgetting as well.

1.) A gang of three or four younger kids make their way into an attic on Halloween.  I’m with them, but they are all at least 10-15 years younger than me.  Nonetheless, I fit right in as if we’d been friends forever.  The leader of our pack resembles the little boy from the shining (thin, shiny, straight hair, maybe 8 years old) and the other’s are even younger (maybe around 6 years old).  

2.) We hang out in the attic every night I think.  Typically we bring flashlights with us, but this time, the batteries were dead.  Instead, we brought one of those heavy duty lights with the little cage around the bulb that plugs into the wall.  For some reason, I recall being scared shitless. 

3.) We are all gathered close in the attic, and the shiny haired boy tells us he has an idea for the light, so that we don’t have to constantly hold onto it. I remember a shot of the light, like a close up and a zooom out to the entire room at the thought of disaster.  I kept thinking to myself, “God, this place is about to go up in flames…. and all of these little kids are going down with it.”

4.)  The boy places a cardboard box halfway up the stairs and places the light in the box (for some reason this was a solution to whatever problem it was that we were having).  The younger boy with glasses explains, “Jerry’s (shiny haired boy) going out first looks like, after that it’s all in the hands of fate.”

5.) THE DREAM switches (or at least, what happened after that is unclear).

6.) I’m now running around in MAZE. Maze is a nickname for a neighborhood near my house.  It’s been coined the name due to it’s hosting abilities for driving around and smoking pot.  I seem to have timed everything perfectly.  As I reach a stop sign, a car (black sable) pulls up and I attempt to hop in, but for some reason I can’t seem to manage.

7.) I watch the car roll away, it’s dark now, and I can see the headlights through some bushes about one hundred yards away.  I rush through to the car, and once again, realize it’s still haloween.  The car is parked, the crew (3 guys) gets out now their staring at this trapdoor near the edge of the forest from a distance.  I look at them, silence, their faces are greenish white.  

8.) Once we reach the door/hole in the ground, the living room light from the nearest house flicks on.  Three bodies stand in the window, all we can see are the whites of their teeth.  They’ve been watching us somehow. I suddenly get premonitions of cameras all over the woods, all over town in fact. The guys scatter, but what happens next is unclear.

9.) I’m sitting in a room watching a video about god knows what.  The room is white and plastic.  If i recall correctly, there was one orange block, and one blue block on the screen.  The blue block was multiplying, almost liquifying and hovering around this blue block who sat there like a suspect being interrogated.  Next to me, watching, was Emily Redding (for those who don’t know, an old friend).  As I sit there wondering what the hell it is I’m doing in this room, I see the ‘bodies in the window’ appear, and I finally realize… I’m back in the attic.
