Otter-Dog and Other Dreams

   Here are some photos I took a couple of months ago. They were taken in Ballard, a very photographically inspiring neighborhood of Seattle.

   Last night I had a dream that I woke up from a dream and couldn't figure out if the dream's dream was real or not. It was very meta. It was like I was in Inception, except my dream's dream was a bit more mundane than the Inception dreamscapes. So it was more like being in a more ordinary version of a Inception. I also had a dream that I was at a marina and I saw a half-otter half-dog swimming toward me. He was very friendly and seemed particularly fond of me. He had huge woolly feet and a face that looked sometimes like a dogs and sometimes like an otters depending when I looked at him. I have a lot of dreams revolving around made believe water animals. Someday I am going to draw pictures of them all. But enough with my dreams for now. Like Built to Spill says 'no one wants to hear/ what you dreamt about unless you dreamt about them." Although I don't think that is really true. It's just that dreams always seem more amazing to the dreamer than to an outsider. It is hard to convey how odd and amazing a dream feels through words and no ones reaction to a dream can match the way it feels to the dreamer.
