Crows, Road and Storm Front Dream 1-9-21

For whatever reason I had a slightly restless night and was awake between 3:30and 5:30. A little after that I nodded off and had this dream.

The wife and I are in a right hand drive car driving along on the right-hand side of the road. She is driving and I am the passenger.  We come over the brow of a hill and can see the dual laned road heading off straight into the distance. There is no traffic and I say that it would be OK to drive on the left-hand side because of this. The road continues off up a hill and far into the distance.

In front of the hill and in the distance, I see a large number of crows. They are heading towards. Behind them is a very squally rain cloud and I can just make out rain falling in large quantities in the distance. The cloud looks to be really chucking it down and we are heading right towards it.

I say to the wife that we need to get off the road and park up because it will not be safe to drive through that quantity of rain. I see a slip road on the left-hand side of the road. I say to her that she must pull off up the slip road. She is a little hesitant, but I insist.

We decelerate and pull off, there is a stream of water across the road, which she slows down to traverse. I say that she needs to accelerate which she does. The road then has a very sharp gradient leading to a flat open area. The gradient part of the road is brown and wet. I ask her if she thinks she can make it. She changes down into first gear, and she drives the car up and into the lee of a building.

While we are waiting for the rain, I ask her about the £10,000 contract that she is thinking of signing. What is it about and how come she hasn’t mentioned it before? She says it is a part of the Princeton schools project for children. It stems from something she was engaged in way back. I suggest that she needs to reconsider accepting it.

Dream ends.

The wife and I are in a right {right side knowledge / logic} hand drive car {state of awareness} driving along on the right-hand {right side knowledge / logic} side of the road. {direction} She is driving {noted} and I am the passenger.  We come over the brow of a hill and can see the dual laned road {direction} heading off straight into the distance. There is no traffic and I say that it would be OK to drive on the left-hand {left-sided knowledge / feeling} side because of this. The road continues off up a hill and far into the distance.

In front of the hill and in the distance, I see a large number of crows. {couriers of power in large number heading towards us perhaps warning us about the rain} They are heading towards. Behind them is a very squally rain {the process of life and squally} cloud and I can just make out rain falling in large quantities in the distance. The cloud looks to be really chucking it down {the process of life} and we are heading right towards it.

I say to the wife that we need to get off the road {need to change direction} and park up because it will not be safe to drive through that quantity of rain. {the process of life} I see a slip road on the left-hand {left-sided knowledge / feeling} side of the road. I say to her that she must pull off up the slip road. She is a little hesitant, but I insist.

We decelerate and pull off, there is a stream of water {love} across the road {direction}, which she slows down to traverse. I say that she needs to accelerate which she does. The road then has a very sharp gradient leading to a flat open area {Freedom / fear of taking the gap to fredom}. The gradient {a bit tricky} part of the road is brown {stability, need for being grounded or earthed} and wet. I ask her if she thinks she can make it. She changes down into first gear {take things slowly}, and she drives the car {state of awareness} up and into the lee {sense of protection} of a building.

While we are waiting for the rain, I ask her about the £10,000 {10 a new cycle, impeccability through the repetition of past experience or a warning not to fall into old traps, 1 is the need for fluidity or lack of} contract that she is thinking of signing. What is it about and how come she hasn’t mentioned it before? She says it is a part of the Princeton schools project for children. It stems from something she was engaged in way back. {a sense of something old} I suggest that she needs to reconsider accepting it.

This dream seems to be more for the wife than for me. It is a warning not to let logic and reason dominate and to rely more on feelings. We need to change direction and shelter from the torrential processes of life. The wife needs to slow down and remain grounded. That way she will get more freedom. It seems the warning is also about not falling back into old ways / traps, one of which is a concern about money. Be careful what you sign up to.

Les Hirondelles à Mach 2 and Protector Birds

We have a passageway between the house and the garages it is about 120cm wide and 250cm tall at the entrance and exit. In between it rises to around five metres.

Of late entering the passageway often results in a swallow {une hirondelle I think of them in French and not English} whizzing past your head at Mach 2. Well not really Mach 2 but pretty damn quick. They fly close to your head; you can hear the wings.

The pair may be nesting in the passageway. One of them was on the ladder in the atelier yesterday afternoon, so they may be looking for a spot. Like the Red Arrows they are very acrobatic fliers and to watch them drink from the pond on the wing is a marvel. They fly ten centimetres from the surface, and they dip to sip. It is almost worth buying a new video camera just to capture it.

It is possible that these are the same ones, back from Africa, we had in residence last year.

We have been speculating that the Magpies are acting like “protector” birds just like Russel and Sheryl. Back when I was having my “conversations” on the Ashridge estate they said that they would send protectors and sure enough two crows, Russell and Sheryl, nested just above our back door.

Maybe I need to think of some names for our current corvids…

Hmnn…
