During the latter part of March I had a series of photo-realistic dreams involving those I've wronged (either real or imagined) in my recent past, those who've felt slighted or offended (for whatever the myriad of reasons - I can hardly keep up with everyone's individual expectations) and those I greatly miss interacting with on a regular basis (either because I wasn't active enough in maintaining the relationship despite all their best efforts, or you know, life.) Yet the common theme surrounding all these dreams were a kind of reconciliation; a coming-to-terms, despite the solemnity of them.

The dream which most pointed out what was transpring came from the unlikeliest of sources; Minecraft. As I was trying to figure out why I had been dreaming what I'd been dreaming, I dreamed an Enderman, that intractable ferrier of blocks began to rearrange blocks in my head in a sort of slow, methodical defragmentation - presumably in an attempt at making me whole again. What an odd (and somewhat unsettling) metaphor!

Or perhaps I've just been playing too much Minecraft with my kids.

The clarity of your dreams amazes me! At times, I don't know whether to be envious or relieved that mine are not so vivid.

Its a gift, and a curse.

i love the idea of defragmenting/deblocking to regroup as a way of becoming whole again. i think i could use some of that though it sounds like a scary process.

Given the alternative, however.
