Some goodness and/or/at least neutrality in the white top & khaki shorts. There as a companion archetype at least, or a messenger. She wasn't
necessarily *from* there, as she would surely have been able to tell you the name if so. Curious that she couldn't refer it from the map. Perhaps
she felt the name of the bay was unimportant to the message of the dream, and didn't want to clutter things up. (She sensed you were diverging from
the "script" by trying to geospatially locate RL site from within the dream?)
Don't think you actually said 'airport', maybe that's just the mimage I got from the description. If she was 'traveling' too though that would
explain her unfamiliarity with the local surroundings. (What? Stupid American! I'm here on a layover too. I don't know the name of this bay!
The little one is perplexing. I don't know what to make of the party dress. The headband is quite significant though! My immediate thought would
be the Japanese hachimaki
, the "headband of victory", most known in pop culture from the Kamikaze pilots of WWII, although it is a wider
cultural thing. Her initial behavior would seem to support this reference. Was it "just" white, or any symbols/lettering on it? That is
That being said ... dream is quite clearly Vietnamese-referenced. There the white head band signifies that one is a family member in mourning. Only
rationale for that attack upon you would seem to imply that she blamed you in some fashion for that loss. Her accusation was great, but you rebuffed
it handily, as the blame was not yours. You knew you'd done her no wrong to give reason to attack. That was what gave you the strength and the
inner fortitude to repulse...otherwise she may have handed you your dreamin' @ss on a proverbial platter! Sounds like she could be quite the
Now...the plates...you used the word 'formica', but what I got from that is 'melamine'? I don't think I'm off here. Looked into it and
melamine is a constituent of formica. I'm thinking of the white, hard, plasticky plates that are real light, and will start melting in the microwave
if left in there too long. Found usually in those 'everything from China' flea market booths with hundreds of boxes of stuff everywhere.
So...get ready to change those undies...melamine floats.
You saw the dishes indoors, in a table setting...then the setting changes to water/ocean. This doesn't sound an alarm; as you said, it's a dream
and it would have attached more significance to that if needed.
HOWEVER...she was there with you through everything...so the fact that the two of you ended up there together not surprising. Not getting
tsunami-related, as you'd both be...well, not so much amongst the living after that.
I'm not sure what the significance of the sea/ocean is, other than the fact that it is there to show you that the dishes would float in such a
situation...for whatever that's worth. Can you attach any other sentiment or feeling to the scene change there? What do you think *she* thought of
the scene change - did she seem shocked, or cool as the proverbial cucumber? If cool, it's a part of the script. If she was startled by the change,
then she may not even be a product of your dream, but an outside observer as hinted at in my first post.
So, the both of you are floating there...you see the scissors...and you know instinctually that you need to show them to her...why does she need to
see them? That's again why I wonder if she's a manifestation or not. She knew what it meant when you showed her the scissors! SHE KNEW WHAT IT
MEANT, EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T! She saw that you had grasped...whatever it is that the scissors represent...and understood somehow, and was trying to
communicate that. To her it was as plain as the nose on your face, but she couldn't tell you directly. All she could do was give you a big flashing
YES when you showed her you were on to it. I'm thinking the scissors could be some concept that your head is wrapping itself around currently,
perhaps even only on a subconscious level.
Once she was able to see you'd seen what you needed to see, POOF! Adios amigo, dreamtime go bye-bye. End of message.
It is most curious.
Again, this has absolutely no basis in anything. I do have a bit of an interest in dream interpretation simply for my own jollies (strictly personal
curiosity/observance), and found your random story intriguing.
Perhaps if you hadn't spent all afternoon yakking with strangers in airports, you'd have had more time for that swimmin' hole? It sounds nice. On
an interpretive note, kind of like something you wanted to do in life but never got around to and now it's too late.
