Weekly Capsule 26.3: Recurring StormPosted: July 2, 2015
After a few insanely muggy days, the first hurricane of the season just hit Vietnam. Hanoi is far enough inland that it didn’t really affect us, save for a metric shit ton of rain (I managed to sneak these photos between two heavy rainstorms – it’s a simple outfit for running errands, but I like it.)
Speaking of storms, I’ve been having this weird recurring dream for at least a year now. The details may vary, but it always goes like this: I’m in some high place (usually a room in a tall building), watching the horizon, then some huge storm clouds or tornadoes start rising up from the horizon and rush toward me, and finally they hit the building I’m in with such a force that all the windows shatter. And it ends with either broken glass or pieces of hail around me. It’s not that weird when described like that; what’s weird for me is that it’s recurring – I never used to have recurring dreams. I wouldn’t call it a nightmare either, because in the dream I’m more excited/in awe at the display of natural forces than scared. I’m not big on dream interpretation, so I have no idea what it means. Maybe I’m secretly a storm chaser?
