Fun With Snakes

Fun With Snakes 9/22/82 I am playing with two small snakes that are banded with various colors.  They are perhaps ten inches long.  I am letting them encircle my index finger until they make two intertwined rings the length of my finger.  Then I slide my finger out and watch them untangle themselves.  At one point, I get in the way of one and it bites my finger, but it is hardly a pin-prick and not poisonous.  I end up putting them...

Lois Clubbing

Lois Clubbing 5/81 I am eating with Lois and Jeannie.  They are talking about their night out. It seems Lois is single.  Dad is attached.  Lois is talking about how she went out clubbing – looking for  men.   She says to me, “What do you think of me now?”  I thought how no one was perfect, that companionship is a normal desire for single women. Associations Lois is my father’s second wife.  They are recently married.  She was his office assistant in his orthodontic...

Irresponsible House Parent

Irresponsible House Parent 7/10/83 I am working as a house parent at a youth home.  Bonnie comes in to spend the night.  She sleeps in my room.  She is very distant; we don’t talk much.  I leave to go home late at night.  When I return, several kids have run off.  They try hard to blame me but I haven’t done anything.  (Not right.  I had not locked the front door when I left, as I should have.  But that wouldn’t have...

House Hunting With Fred

House Hunting With Fred  10/26/86 10/26/86 House Hunting with Fred I am with Fred Schindler, house hunting. We are going to investigate a house that we are to live in. To get to this area Fred jumps off the far creek bank, then dives or jumps into water at a much lower level (50-75 feet!) Then he swims across the creek. He wants me to follow, but I have my suit on and hesitate. I am in a quandry about how to...

Balloon Ride

Balloon Ride 7/3/83 Can’t find original narrative.  Reconstruction based on sociomatrix & memory:  I am watching a man with a beard prepare a hot air balloon to take off.  He had heard a story about one and so decided to make one.  A group of people watching are skeptical, but this man is able to take off in it; even though it is lacking a top he is still able to control it.  He gestures and calls to me to come...

Jess Returns

“Continue to work to unite life and death. They are really the same; only our attachment to physical survival, success, ownership, and recognition blinds us to their sameness.” ...

The Head of Judas

The Head of Judas 6/15/83 I am looking at a mountain.  It seems that the right end of it contains a huge carved head called, “The Head of Judas.”  It is totally separate from the rest of the mountain except by the neck.  But the head is gone – except for the neck and maybe a piece of the jaw.  The builder, a man my age, is by me.  He “flies” up to the top of the mountain, then drops down to...
