Dream: Viswa Subbaraman  has managed to arrange a performance of my work THE SNOW DRAGON in some strange town. Actually it appears not to be my opera at all, but a spoken word stage play adapted from it. What's more, he has arranged for me to pl...

Another dream.  Mikey and I are at some kind of performance of a musical and there is a reception afterwards, and I end up chatting to a woman with long curly black hair dressed in black and white, who is a singer in the musical. In this receptio...

A dream. Okay this starts off inside some kind of Nordic, Mediaeval world and I am a God, wielding incredible power, battling forces of doom in some Ragnarok-like situation, and also terrifying the peasants and sweeping through the universe ... in...

My dream: first, my house. There's a sloping street in front of it, narrow, and there's another house at the bottom of the hill, and this is a world where zombies are taking over. There is a sort of garage door in front of this other house and a w...

This morning, I dreamed that my son Johnny has built me a sumptuous new home. It is a huge palatial structure and now he's showing me the entire complex he has created. I come down an elevator and we are standing in a central square of the complex...

Another epic sleep disorder day when — this has become a sort of pattern — I can't keep my eyes open at 5 pm and have to sleep, then wake up 3 hours later bewildered and wide awake, usually with some kind of dream attached. In this dream, I am re...

A strange dream of war. I am leading a battle to free Virginia from either the British or French – it is unclear. After the battle, I'm in an inn and the former enemies are seated at various tables. I introduce the British (or French) general to a...

I went back to sleep around 4 am and had another dream. In this dream I was about to go and record a soundtrack for a film.  There is a young girl who is a Thai film actress. She's rather chubby, with a ponytail and shorts, and she has been stayi...

I need to record this dream before I forget it. It is 2 am. I am walking home across a beautifully manicured field. I come to a long, perfectly shaped ditch, about three feet across. The ditch is formed like a half-pipe, the soil fresh, and it is...

I dreamt that I and some friends were being imprisoned in a beautiful red sandstone Palace with great buttresses and huge terraces. The walls were stucco and full of reliefs.  Once in a while the Guards who sat on the veranda would behead somebod...

A dream of being lost …in the dream I walk out of my house which is not my normal house but a high rise. I have left the contents of my pocket on a blue sofa, leaving the house with no phone or wallet because of my haste. I am walking up Sukhumvit...

Friends, yes it's true that I didn't get to sleep until 11 am, then was woken by phone calls and slept again at 1 and didn't wake up until 6 pm. But the good news is that it was a good sleep with a lot of REM (because I'm aware of at least 3-4 dre...

So, today I woke up at 2 pm and I would like to tell you about my dreams. I woke up a few times in the night and mumbled-dictated them into my phone but some of it is garbled. But first, we were all prisoners of war and there was a dancing king w...

My dream. I'm in a big research library. It's like Vatican Library, mysterious and gloomy and ancient, but with light from a single window in the distance. I'm rifling through the shelves when the librarian handles me a huge folder. This is what ...

My dream: we're in a valley. It's some time during the Mughal conquest. There is a dusty road. To my left is a wall of semicircular slabs, giving a scalloped sandstone effect. They slabs are about waist high. As some kind of military commander of ...

Very brief memories of a complex dream. I'm walking through a large mall or hotel with Mikey. I'm carrying a painting I just bought. At the head of an escalator I realize I left the painting downstairs. Mikey goes down to get it. I'm opening a bo...

I fell asleep after lunch and dreamed again! I dreamed I was at a science fiction con called "Space Camp Con" - only it was ACTUALLY a hurricane con. The entire con was in a series of rooms constructed on the upper floors overlooking an atrium. In...

In last night's dream, as I leave my house I stumble into what looks like Grand Central station and a Hollywood "cattle call" is in progress. (That's a casting session where pretty much anyone can come.) A little girl is sitting on a park bench tr...

Dreams, dreams, dreams.... Last night my dreams were neither fantastical nor especially colorful, and yet they remain in the memory more than they should. The first dream: I'm staying in some woman's house and I find, in the bathroom, a piece of...

I know I am always saying I had a very strange dream, but.... This kind of takes the cake.  It starts off at the lunch counter of some kind of diner, where we are lining up to get plates of curry. The curry looks and tastes very inauthentic and p...
