dreaming is free

I've been having some good dreams lately.

Last night, I dreamed I was in India and I was walking from one place to another with other people. We walked across fields and along rivers, and ended up in a restaurant where we ordered chai. I had to go to the bathroom, and it turned out we were on a dock and the bathrooms were over the water. The water was raging and churning and it was hard to get seated. Then I woke up. The landscapes of the dream were quite amazing, and probably derived from watching "Slumdog Millionaire" last weekend.

A couple nights ago, I had a good flying dream. My flying dreams are usually set on this world, where I'm standing on a field or building then go "up, up, and away" and soar around for a while.

In this dream, I was floating in space staring at a sky of stars. I turned around and there, below me, was Mars. Red and beautiful, like I was on a space station in orbit around the planet. Except I was flying in space.

There was more to the dream, involving some mining-like activity on one of the moons. But the main image I remember is Mars, hanging below me. It was wonderful. I'm sure it will be in a story one day.

Anyone out there have any good dreams recently?
