Geographically-odd water elemental dreams
Apparently the show has a lot of water imagery, which is heavy in my mind lately due to my love affair with the ocean. Here is the one I woke from this morning.
In this dream, I had traveled to coastal Virginia, a place I've never been in waking life. Virginia had barrier reef islands, rows and rows of these long, thin and green islands, some no more than a foot across, and others big enough to put a house on. You could jump or swim easily to each one. They were incredibly beautiful and my vision was overlaid with imagery from an old-time map, something more suited to the South Pacific.
This was Virginia? I was floored.
I was there with two friends, one a Virginia resident who showed us around. The ocean water was cold but shallow in some places and safe to get into. It flowed stronger in two places. In one, it was a small river or rushing creek curling around the sand. We gasped because the rushing water opened its eyes and looked at us! It was in the shape of a woman sort of bent in on herself, long hair braided and flowing. I assumed she was a water elemental. The other fast-moving water was a large river flowing rapidly over a perfectly flat, smooth area into the ocean. I was hesitant to enter this water, unsure of the currents.
The whole thing was astoundingly beautiful!
My friend, the Virginia girl, took us into a very old, dungeon-like building that had many underground levels. I passed by some rednecks (?) having a conversation. I passed by rooms with skulls and bones barely visible behind crumbling stones. It actually wasn't creepy and was warmly lit with torches. We were adventuring and enjoying each others' company.
