This entry and all others from 1996-97 are part of my dream project which extended from August 1996-97. I kept track of my dreams for an entire year by recording them to audiocassette and illustrating what parts I could in composition books. I ended up with over 70 ninety-minute cassettes and four composition books detailing my dreams.
The written transcription is from a much later date than 1996-97 but is almost word-for-word, with some slight corrections and omissions. This typed transcription is not 100% faithful to the original verbal account, as it allows for slight modifications, additions, omissions, and corrections. There are new separations between paragraphs and dreams are separated into different entries at approximately the right places. In addition, segments of dreams MAY be transposed/moved/added to other sections as I see fit. Aside from these modifications, these dreams are detailed exactly as I had them over six years ago.
I don't remember exactly what this dream was. I was at some kind of compound or college building and I remember I was looking down over it; there were a bunch of steps and this guy in a uniform standing before this gate or fence. He was talking about what they did inside the compound, which was some kind of military establishment. I couldn't remember what he was doing or anything, but he said something before I woke up, like, "Well, do you want to come in and have a look around?" He was talking to some other people who were interviewing him or something, and they were going to look in, but that's when I woke up.
