Dreams are so crazy.
I had this excellent dream the other night about two friends. They recently completed a gorgeous renovation on a beautiful house but are moving to another city for reasons that make complete sense. In my dream they were at a different house, one they had either just moved into or were planning to soon leave, cant remember which.
In any event, there was this crazy tree-house type structure in the yard, it was sort of circular and seemed like it had been maybe built around a tree at some point but was now free standing. It was very cool, super fun for kids but they decided it needed to come down – I think it was because they were trying to sell the house.
Anyway, somehow they had devised this way of folding it up instead of tearing it down in a destructive and messy way. A bunch of us helped – first one side of the structure kind of cantilevered in, so that the whole thing was kind of half folded and extended over us. Then that side came down and the entire structure was kind of flattened on itself, standing. Then we somehow folded the whole thing in half and laid it on the ground.
It was a pretty tremendous experience for me – I was in the middle of the structure while all this activity was going on, and with every fold the whole structure moved around or above me. It should have been terrifying but it wasn't.
The gist of the dream is so straightforward, in that magical clarity of dreaminess - the moving, the packing, the magnitude of it, the lack of fear.
