Dream of:19 January 1979 "Frauen Kirche"
I had arrived by train in Munich, Germany. I saw Munich from a distance and it looked like a picture post card that Bernhardt (a German acquaintance) had shown me. At first I thought I was in New York City and I searched the skyline with my eyes for the twin towers. But then I saw the tall towers of the Frauen Kirche, the magnificent church in Munich, and I knew where I was. As I looked at the church, I noticed how the sidewalk by the church was wide at one point and how at another point the church was built out almost to the curb so there was hardly room for one person on the sidewalk.
I arrived at a little building which seemed like a restaurant. I continued looking at the windows at the Frauen Kirche for a long time. The windows were large and colorful and embodied figures. The top of the windows was clear and part was broken out. Still I was quite surprised by how beautiful it all appeared. The door of the church was open, but I couldn't see in. Someone standing next to me asked me if I had ever been inside. At first I didn't understand what he meant and I answered yes, but when I understood he was talking about the church, I said, "No."
I wanted to go over to the church, but I thought that I was in East Germany, and that East and West Germany were separated by a border through the middle of Munich so I couldn't get across. My window however wasn't locked, so I pushed it open. It only opened about five centimeters and wouldn't go any farther. But now I anyway felt the cool breeze in my face.
I continued looking at the church. The top part was built from wood and was painted white, but it looked dirty and was in need of new paint. I saw oval-shaped clocks on two sides of one of the towers. I was quite surprised to see them functioning. Their faces were dark blue and the hands were red. They were covered with glass. They said it was twenty before ten.
I decided I wanted to leave and was surprised to find I could simply walk outside. I found myself standing in front of the train station, wanting to cross over to the church. I was carrying about 10 books under my arm, at least three of which were written in Spanish. One was titled Yo Estoy Bien, Tu Estas Bien. One book had something to do with history and one was a Persian dictionary.
As I stood in front of the train station, a young fellow began to speak with me. I wanted to speak in German, but since he spoke English, I likewise spoke English. I didn't care for him and I wanted to leave him. He began talking about how he liked to talk with foreigners and he said something about an "international front".
Suddenly a girl with platinum-colored hair stood up from a bench where she had been sitting. She called to another young fellow. She wanted to buy some hash from him. Several other people crowded around the fellow with the hash and wanted to buy some. I immediately decided I would likewise like to buy some hash, even though I knew I had said I wasn't going to smoke anymore. But now the desire was strong. I saw the hash, which was silver-colored. The fellow said it cost 99 cents. I said, "Good, then two marks."
He said, "No, 99 pfennig. One mark."
I said good, and gave him a mark. I reflected and decided to buy still another piece. This time I bought a gold-colored piece. Both pieces were like little rolls. I said I didn't intend to smoke it, but was going to eat it.
I walked down the street. One fellow wanted to go with me, but I said good-bye to him and walked along with my books alone. I noticed neon lights all around and I saw pictures of half-naked women in the windows. I wanted a woman badly. I also wanted to go to a bar.
All at once Bernhardt was standing beside me. I remembered he lived in Munich. He said it was a good night for romance. I said no, I only wanted sex. I asked him if I could leave my things in his house and he said sure.Dream Journal Home Page
