**Strange dreams lately. A long spell of no dreams, then a few wild ones I forgot to write down. This one I did**

I'm going prospecting, Southern Alberta, not Southern Alberta, a dream landscape I've visited before. There's a valley, strewn with lava stones and gems, and I'm going to stop there first along the way...

Only as I get there there's a bridge, and over the bridge, towards me, flowing a viscous green mass of water, there's been a flood, no prospecting today...

I'm at home, a 3 story apartment in a small sunny neighborhood somewhere, wooden balcony, peach plaster building, external stairs up to the flat, 3 beds, I have roommates, ....

2 pretty girls, I don't know them but I work with them, they're friends, upstairs on the beds making themselves comfortable, they're going to be spending the night, their flat is under water, and I'm thinking this could get spicy...

Then more people - B****, hipster waiter from the D "n" D in the Kootenays, he's here, other friends I haven't met yet, don't know, know only that they're friends...

Outside, the light of the setting sun, I see the green water swirling down below, the flood has reached here, people are climbing the steps to higher ground, leaving their ground level flats, I see  ****?, the wife of an old customer of the old restaurant, I've seen her husband around lately but have been avoiding him, wanted to avoid awkward artificial pleasantries, the balcony and apartment are filling up, there's a festive atmosphere...

I've walked around the balcony, lots of people up here watching the water, when all of a sudden it rises at once, 10,  maybe 20 feet, and all the flats beneath me are flooded, I'm teasing B**** about living in his parents basement, he's going to have a mess to clean up for sure, when I realize - I live on the second floor, and everything I own is under water...

The water, as suddenly as it rose it's sinking now, and all I can think about is that everything I have is ruined, watches, everything, and I have no insurance...

I'm checking into an old hotel, the walls are yellow, outside it's surrounded by green trees. There's a dim comfortable light at the front desk, they know me when I come in, "Yes, yes Mr. Boyle, we have a room for you"...

They know me in a creepy kind of way, I don't know them, it reminds me a bit of Jack Torrance being finally welcomed to the Overlook Hotel...

The desk clerk shows me to my room. The room, dingy, yellow walls, it'll do, when I spot on it, flickering just out of reach of the light from the bedside lamp - a butterfly, camouflaged, then opening it's wings to reveal a beautiful burst of color, I try to bring my phone close to it to take a picture, share with a friend, but it flies away...

The desk clerk is apologizing, they don't usually have bugs in their hotel, but I'm looking for it now, on the wall in the hallway, opening it's wings a beautiful blue-green that casts a stunning penumbra onto the wall and I have to get a picture of this...

That I'm on Kootenay Lake, Not Kootenay Lake, Kootenay Lake only much narrower and the mountains, from the edge, are so much higher...

I'm on a dock with my daughter, looking across, there's a miniature cruise ship, 4 stories above the water with 4 smokestacks just like the Titanic. And across the lake a glacier slips down and plunges in, a big wave and the cruise ship tips on it's side, I look at my daughter, I'm annoyed but I have to dive in and try and save some of the people, the water's going to be cold, I grab a garden hose from the dock and leap in...

Swimming, swimming, they don't need me at the ship, there weren't so many people on it after all,but there's a box that's fallen into the water, filled with - ?Pearls? I don't know, but it's sinking and sinking, the lid is open and it's contents are floating up but I'm swimming deeper after the box, the water isn't so cold after all...

I'm a passenger in a car being driven down the 3A, sitting in the back seat, and we're being chased by a T-Rex...bigger than a T-Rex even, huge, and it's bearing down on us and I'm crouched on the floor with a tiny axe yelling to the driver "Just stop the car and I'll whack it!" but the driver won't stop, and as fast as he's going the T-Rex is keeping up, alongside us now and roaring through the windows, it'll rip the top off the car and me and my tiny axe, we don't stand a chance...

Long day out handing out resumes, everywhere too busy, this is not the season to be looking for work. Got home exhausted, short nap, this was the result...
