About last night's Dream

Dream


Weird apocalyptic dream. I was at work, although work was an old building with high ceilings, like a church. During routine discussions, we experienced a moderate earthquake that caused minor damage. In the excitement, after the event, we discover that a small black hole, about the size of a speck of dust, had hit the Earth, and was now swimming around the planet's centre-of-mass, causing horrifying instabilities. The moon was getting pulled in slightly closer, causing the tides to rise considerably. This nightmare end-of-world situation was apparently going to right itself when said black hole evaporates in a few days. We were left with a sense of dread, but with the feeling that if we just maintained a stiff upper lip, and kept on high ground, we'd make it out of the other side.

Very strange!

Speculations about Star Wars IX

*This was a Quora submission that I wanted to keep an eye on, given that in 1981, I correctly predicted the ending of The Return of the Jedi.*

This is the hardest Star Wars movie to predict, and I think that is great. I liked The Last Jedi, it wasn't perfect but I enjoyed the twists. To answer the question I'd speculate in much broader story-telling terms. Johnson seems to be preparing us for a finale that breaks out of the cycle, the way that the Matrix trilogy did. In the Matrix, Neo discovers that he is only the latest permutation in a long-running cycle - which is never resolved, only rebooted/continued. In the third movie, Neo chooses a "third way" and breaks the cycle. Breaking the cycle I believe that Rose and Finn's brief discussion with DJ about the true nature of the conflict teases the possibility of a similar third way by which the Star Wars might end. They briefly confront the fact that the pendulum of galactic conflict is hanging off a larger mechani…

Toy storage and a rare night out

Our lounge area has been increasingly buried under wooden train track pieces and Duplo Lego. We held back sorting the problem out because we're planning a complete top-to-bottom refurbishment of the lounge, someday soon. Well, last weekend I cracked, we went to Ikea to get some storage units, I told myself that if these units don't form part of the new room, I'll put them elsewhere -- maybe in the boy's room or even in the loft space.




After rushing to build these Kalax Shelving units, we celebrated by having a night out -- after settling to boys down at my mum's. We had a fantastic meal at Lokanta, a Turkish restaurant in Broomhill.




familie tijd

This week we went to see my sister, Tracy and her family who live in Haarlem (Grote Markt, not Globe Trotters). We had a fantastic time, just hanging out and then on Tuesday we went to Amsterdam for the day.






Last night I finally started to repopulate the loft space - post roof replacement.



Good prospects for a night out with Clara on Saturday night.
Just a week away from the Mid-term elections, where we see if Trump is finally forced to face investigation.
