Dreams and Food

I remember my dreams. Early this morning I "watched" some post-apocalyptic world where a being, "The Dragon" ruled, seducing people while their significant others watched; cars were controlled by only a few; and people reminisced about the past over model building, trains, and ships. I told R.about the dream and am already trying to figure out the rational behind it: who's The Dragon? How does he have such an effect on the survivors around him; why is the world the way it is? I already know the story's belongs to one of the odd magic realism sub-genres. I'm not sure, for example, if The Dragon is a real entity or one of those metaphysical symbols found in similar stories.

Later this evening, I attended another taste test for Romano's Macaroni Grill. I sampled five new entries: one pasta dish and four meaty meals. Yum! Even though I ate only two-thirds of each dish, I'm quite full.


  • If you said "dragons" I would think High Fantasy but what popped in my mind was the Christian symbol of Satan as dragon. (Of course it could be Stephen King or Michael Chrichton.)

  • It's funny you mentioned Satan... :)
