Gruesome Dreaming

I'm not having nightmares as such. And I've only edited one Warren and one Conyers so far this year.

But ...

I'm sleeping with the aircon on at night. It's just too hot. Mine is on a thermostat so that it turns off at my preset temp and then regulates the room in the night - turning on and cutting out as necessarily. And I'm assuming that whirring is invading my sleep.

Because the other night I had a pretty darn gruesome dream. It felt like a sequel dream, where the murder of some person was familiar and this was the continuation of that. I was peering into a room and two women shook their heads at me and closed a curtain. I was not to know what was going on in there. Except ... I could hear it. I welcomed into the room I was in, people I knew ... they'd come for a minyan (Jewish Prayer gathering for the days following the burial of a loved one). As we gathered and prayed, in the background I could hear the constant whirring of a mincer or a food processor. And at some point in the middle, one of them came out to get a tablecloth and she made me give her a kiss on the cheek and all I could see was the blood smatterings on her upper arm and summer suit jacket. And when it was finished, my mother and I went into the kitchen and draining on the dish drainer are all the parts of a food processor. And my Mum kept trying to gather them up and I kept shaking my head and saying nevermind, I would buy her a new one.

And my mother, in response to this dream told me yesterday ... that's all about your relationship breakdown.
