Dream of: 07 March 1988 "Lecture On Insanity"
It was morning. I was in Portsmouth in a bed with Ellen (about 15 years old, whom I had first met around 1972 when she was around 15 years old) with whom I had spent the night.
Suddenly the door opened and Ellen's mother walked in. I was startled and uncertain what to do. Her mother, clearly surprised to see me there, turned and immediately left the room.
I stood up and dressed. I was afraid of what was going to happen now. I knew Ellen's father was also in the house. I was afraid that Ellen's parents would inform the police that I had been with a minor and that the police would arrest me. Nevertheless, I decided to go to the dining room and eat with the parents. I walked into the dining room and took a seat at the table with the father. I immediately told him I was going to do whatever he wanted. If he told me not to see Ellen anymore, I wouldn't see her. He said he didn't want me to see her anymore, and he left.
Ellen was also sitting at the table. She and I stood up and walked down some stairs. I told her she should call me later; then I left.
I was trying to decide what I was going to do while I was in Portsmouth and finally I remembered a place where a series of lectures was going to be given. I called the place and asked what the next lecture would be about. Someone told me it would be about insanity. I didn't like that theme; I hesitated to go, but since I didn't have anything else to do, I decided to go.
When I arrived at the building, I entered and encountered many people. I arrived at the room where the lecture was going to be given, and discovered that my old philosophy professor Rembert Glass was going to give the lecture. I looked at the people in the room, but I didn't see anyone whom I knew. When a young woman in a group of three young women waved at me, I approached the group. The woman said she knew me, and I tried to remember who she was. I thought one of the other girls was a Portsmouth girl named Rhonda whom I had once known, but the girl wasn't Rhonda. I told the women that I hadn't been in Portsmouth for a long time, and that I didn't remember who they were. The woman who said she knew me told me her name, but I still didn't remember who she was.
Rembert was seated at a desk in the room; Cheryl (a former high school classmate) was doing something for him. Cheryl's blouse was low cut, so when she bent over, I could see her breasts. At first I thought she wasn't wearing a bra, but then I saw that she did have one on.
The lecture began and Rembert began talking about insanity. I didn't care much for the lecture. I listened for a while, and finally went to another room which was filling up with people who were going to meditate. About 30 people were seated in folding chairs. Some looked like people whom I had seen at the Dallas Zen Center. In fact, Frank (an acquaintance from the Zen Center) was there.
A man was talking in front in front of the room. It began to look as if he were simply going to talk and as if no one was actually going to meditate. When I asked Frank if people meditated on Saturdays, he said no, that there was only a lecture. Nevertheless, everyone was still trying to sit up straight.
I didn't like all this. During a pause, when some people stood up to leave, I also stood and walked outside, where it was a nice day. Many people were sitting around in the grass. I didn't see anyone whom I knew, but finally I saw the same three women again whom I had seen earlier. Now a man was with them. I approached them and I noticed that one or two other pretty women were now with them. When I asked if I could sit with them, they said I could. I sat down and began talking with them.
