After one week without any news - I know you didn't miss me so please don't act like you did, I won't buy it-, I decided that, not only it was time to write again, but to make a special post to celebrate this blog’s first month. For that purpose, I decided that I wanted to have some guest post stories, because I want this blog to be a place where everyone can share their dreams, no matter how weird they are. Because everyone has a little weird someone in their brains that works at night. This is the blog where those little weird someones can express themselves!
It turned out to be a great experience. The two stories I’ll be publishing are really interesting, and drawing them has been a challenge, since after all, I didn’t dream them, and they probably don’t resemble the original dream at all (sorry!). BUT it has been incredibly fun, and a big inspiration. Besides, some coincidences have taken place: both dreams feature a cat in them, the same week my cat has died. The first of the dreams –that I drew before my cat died- looks like a funeral; and the second cat shares name with my –now dead- cat. Without further ado, here comes the first dream, by Hotei, from the blog “Any More Than a Whisper”. Enjoy!!
The Talking Cat Dream, by Hotei.
It all started when I ventured myself into a parking lot, lost. I did not know the area and did not recognize the buildings! The buildings were painted yellow and white. In this parking lot I noticed a guy (I know him) rummaging in clothes in a small car "a (W) beetle" until a friend of him ...he called her "Anna", called him. - I later discovered his best friend in the real world was named Anna, pretty freaky shit, huh?! -.
Well, she told him to come and not to talk to strangers -meaning "Me"- (Bitch!!!). I wandered for a long time and found myself in an old area full of old houses and a chapel where people where gathering wearing black. There I found my friend again, but the more I approached him, the more he went towards the crowd until disappearing into it, just giving me the chance to grab his arm. He looked at me and said "Just leave...NOW" ...I ran away in despair (Drama Queen!).
Found myself in a known area...in the old capital where I work...wandered in the empty roads and found myself looking down to the city from over the bastions...the view was not the one I was used to ...I was looking to a big city a city I did not know...as if the old capital had been moved to a different location...all of a sudden a small, fat, ginger, blue-eyed kitten came to me from the edge of the bastion walls. I picked the little creature and felt somehow safe...this kitten told me to take him home...and so I did. I got into my car and drove and drove for ages but the buildings were constantly changing and I could not recognize many of them... I finally made it home, to an empty home where time seemed to have stopped....it was cold and started to get dark ....the cat said to me: "I'm finally home".
