I had an essay typed out that is now in the void, so I'll give you some highlights:
*it takes place in a mansionesque house, that is haunted (think Rose Red)
*I decide I need more living space and want to explore the basement. my bro lives down there and hesitantly shows me around.
*two kitchens pretty much back to back. one is tiny and decked out in blck granite, the other is old and untouched.
so eventually we explore thezse two floors here's some highlights:
-I open a door to a yard that is breathtaking. it looks a Mayan site in the Andes. that's when I decide I'm staying.
-I look in a window and see the reflection of DH holding DS. I know this is the 'house' giving me a message. DH is horrified, he says that what he saw was our DS drowned in a bathtub.
-when we get to the end of our exploration my brother blows up telling me 'he' won't be happy when 'he' finds out. DB tells me the name of an author who lives there in the subbasement.
Here's some interesting stuff:
*this is one of only 3 dreams I remember having in color, the last one was so intense, it lead to a tattoo.
*THese 2 floors make up most of the house but b/c of the haunting only my bro will go there. nobody talks about why this is, but we all know.
*my bro is umm....strange. He's wonderful and I know I'm his fav sister. He's 21, goes to college but seems differant, like he's not all here (on earth), like there's part of him getting information and cues from somewhere else.
*there's on part where my whole family is in one of the rooms with us. there's a fire in the hearth and my mother is laying on the floor so exhausted, she's about 30 years younger. IRL she is terminal though still kicking :)
*i have had peices or earlier versions of this dream for a long time. this is the first time in it's entirety.
so help me out here- how crazy am I?
