caused by the wide grin on a friend's face, after he caught me after a winded chase!

We were high in some landscape, near the cloud forest, having travelled there by bus (much like the bus ride I took on the Central American Hwy in Costa Rica years ago). At one of the stops, my friend, Sophia, was making tortillas (naan?) in a clay pit in the ground, and feeding them to the passengers.
A fellow traveler began singing a Love Syndicate tune, (let's see if I remember which one today- I did! Name that Tune), and before I could say, "Hey, I know the guy who wrote that song!", there was Josh (#2, from Philly), on the bus! Everyone was happy to see him, and he sat next to me and gave me hug after hug.

We finally reached our destination. A mountain ridge, high plateau - Andes? Himalayas? No snow, no cold, but desolate.
There were building blocks the size of cars stacked in all types of configurations, reminiscent of a Salvador Dali painting.

Suddenly the stark landscape became an immense children's playground, surrounded by woods. Josh, Lenny, and I started chasing each other, and when Josh caught me, he had the most satisfied grin on his face, I laughed so hard I was rolling on the ground.....that's when I woke up!

I'm trying to channel elegantelbow, an old Albuquerque friend who's great at dream interpretations. One thing is that the images are all happy. People travelling together and singing, one person feeding other passengers, hugging, playing. Since there's a lot of stuff about everyone in a dream being you, the impression would seem to be that you're feeling integrated, at peace with what you're doing.

Journeying to the mountains seems to imply analytical discovery. Mountains are up high. There's not trees or water, things that imply emotion. It's a place where you have perspective. The giant cubes, nice platonic shapes, also seem to point to things categorized and understood.

And then it turns to all this childhood images of playgrounds and playing tag. These are part of our life when we're first social.

So, from the start, I'd say that there's some decision you've come to after some thought (journey to the elevated region with the blocks) which has led to a social emergence, and I'd say there's a feeling of contentment with the whole process.

This is interpretation for entertainment sake, mind you, closer to tarot cards or horoscopes (and I don't feel any particular kinship with fellow October births) than to an actual, serious observation.

Re: Interpretation
Well done, and quite fitting! Thanks, 'cause you helped me realize another thing...
I thought that Josh K. was only in my dream because last night I related a story that involved him to some mutual friends. Another gal once said to me, "he's so gorgeous, don't you just want to throw him down and f@#k him?". To which I immediately responded, "NO!", because my friendship with him meant more than that. I have too respect for both him and myself to objectify him. Beauty that radiates from within is far more precious.

J.K. and I have had a couple of deep discussions, and I have to give him some credit for helping to guide me towards being more content with myself. Ultimately, though, only I can find the answers, but it helps to have tutors! His best advice: "Be DECISIVE, and look people in the eyes!"

So I am on my way to see Love Syndicate play at the Saxon 'cause they are in town, but I called and told Josh about the dream - he laughed, too!
