Movie of the Week (feat. Jennifer Warnes)

You would think your subconscious dreaming might look like an art film, but this one clearly was running in my sleeping head as a Movie of the Week, featuring Jennifer Warnes, in her fifties, as the love interest.  Might have come into mind when I downloaded The Well, her last album from iTunes the previous […]

DREAM October 30

Last night I dreamed a dream. Nick Lowe had agreed to come to Winnipeg to guest with a local band (maybe help with the production of their debut recording). Lowe was impressed by the demo I sent him. He flew from London, spending the night in Toronto before flying to Winnipeg. He arrived at the […]

November Goal (Dream)

No longer playing goal, I have the puck on my stick, a glimpse of an opening, I bury the puck in the back of the net. A pump of my fist, at home in a Jets uniform, I score my second goal this season.

Went up to the sixth floor and  just about everything was different, nothing was the same. Open area, […]

Black Crow Down (Dream)

I switched the light on and went down into the half-finished basement of our new Gretna bungalow.  A big black crow sat on the concrete in the utility area outside the rec room and Dad’s study. It backed up against the wringer washer,  its wing was broken. I lifted Dad’s .22 single shot from the  […]
