Petals

I’m picking flowers from trees and collecting petals to make flowers.

Pleats Please

There’s always been something about the silky, thin blossom petals that makes me want to gather up armfuls of fallen petals, cram my pockets full, and carry them home with me.

Our next door neighbors growing up had two cherry trees in their front yard and one year we did just that; scooped them up from the front walk and stuffed the confetti-like petals into a bag. Of course within hours they were a sad, wilted mess, no longer the perfect silk bits they were strewn in drifts on the ground. The ephemerality, of course, being part of the magic, we accepted that our attempts were futile, and never tried to save them again. Still, every once in a while I can’t help but pick up a blossom that’s managed to fall still-whole and perfect and carry it around with me for a bit.

Art Gala

We’re at some kind of gala art opening event.

Our friends are there, and everyone is milling about and having a great time,

but I don’t really want to hang out so I’m hiding outside by myself.

The Shot

I’m framing my shot, which seems to be taking an eternity.

Fun fact: Japanese wisteria (Wisteria floribunda) vines wind counterclockwise, while Chinese wisteria (Wisteria sinensis) vines wind clockwise.

Shadows of the Past

I’m wandering an overgrown amphitheater. It’s colossal but worn, as if abandoned hundreds of years ago.

Running Errands

It’s one of those dreams that’s about as banal as it gets.

First I’m carefully planning the different neighborhoods and places I have to visit to run errands. Then I go run those errands.

It’s fun to revel in the quotidian, though, isn’t it?

We’re driving around the rocky wilderness. We get out of the car to explore along the rocks.
We’re crossing whole states in our wandering, traversing an unreal distance in a short amount of time.

In my dream we’re driving along somewhere and see a field of California poppies and have to pull over to hang out for a bit.

I stayed up late the night before, but I told myself I was getting up early to go see the cherry blossoms all in bloom.

Hawaiian Vacation

We’re in Hawaii for vacation, but as I understand it it’s kind of a Japan/Hawaii hybrid. We’re busing around the island, which is tedious, and we’re queuing up with the other tourists as we move from landmark to landmark, but I have to admit the view is worth it.
