Thursday: Polaroid dream

with 4 comments

Last night I had my first Polaroid dream. In it, I went to the Parker in Palm Springs. I’ve never been there, but I’ve heard about it from Jen. My version had some sort of big, lush amphitheater out front, and a lot of people. When I walked behind the main building, there was a broad horizon with water in the distance and bright, glaring sunlight, and then a thundering pack of wild horses ran by. It was very romantic, in a Marlboro Man sort of way. Actually, now that I think about it, I might have been confusing the Parker with the Gorge Amphitheater in central Washington. Anyway, I took out my camera and tried to take a bunch of Polaroids, but what came out in the photograph was never the same as what I was pointing the camera at. For example, if I was aiming at the horses, the shot would be of the amphitheater. It was very disconcerting. I am trying not to read too much into this.

Anyway, I chopped up that green garlic from the other day and made it into soup. I thought about sparing it because it was so pretty, but I had to eat lunch.

  1. Oh, you would love The Parker. It’s in my neighborhood, and it is one of my favorite places in the world. Oh, and breakfast there is amazing. One time for my birthday I had chocolate French toast — not made with bread, but thick slabs of chocolate cake that had been French toasted. THAT is how to celebrate a birthday.

  4. How odd is it that I dreampt about your green garlic soup last night, and now I read here, on a blog I never read, frame I never seek, that you’ve had the soup. Of course, in my dream the soup was spinach soup and it wasn’t really soup, but appeared to be a large bowl of decomposing greens of all sorts, like beet tops and kale….
