Dream of: 17 July 1991 (3) "Staying In France"
I was attempting to put an electrical plug into an electrical receptacle, but I was having a difficult time doing so, because one prong of the plug wouldn't fit. A small metal piece had been incorrectly installed, and I knew my father had installed the receptacle. There were actually about six receptacles, none of which had a cover on it. Each receptacle had four red AA batteries with white writing on it, from which the electricity was generated. Beside the receptacle in the top left corner were also some C batteries which apparently helped control all the receptacles. The pieces of metal impeding the plug were held on by small nuts, the kind which had small tabs on them so they could be screwed on and off by hand. I unscrewed one and took off the metal piece.
I was walking through the halls of what appeared to be a mall where shops were set up, when I encountered Elder (an attorney). I showed him the nut which I had taken off the receptacle, as well as some other pieces to it which I extracted from my pocket, and asked him if he had something similar to it. He seemed to think he did, and asked me to follow him. I followed him down the hall until we entered what appeared to be a workshop which he had set up. He seemed to know what he was doing and began looking around.
I was rather impressed with what I saw. Apparently Elder was in the process of building a large, fancy house, and in the shop he had some designs and small models of things which were going to be in the house. I noticed one black model of a commode which was about 10 centimeters high. But it appeared unusual because the place where one would sit would be so high. Although I didn't think of it at the time, it somewhat resembled an outboard motor.
Either I saw or visualized what his house would look like. It was two stories, wide, painted white, probably made of brick. It would obviously require much hard work.
Still thinking about the house, I found myself lying down, resting outside in front of the mall. A fellow (probably in his mid 20s) had come outside with me. I realized we were somewhere in Europe, probably France. I began speaking French with the fellow and it felt wonderful. The other fellow had been in France longer than I; I had just arrived recently. I told him how I loved to speak French and how good it felt. I told him that if I just spoke a language for five minutes a day I learned something and was able to retain the language. But when I spoke it all the time, as I would be doing now, then I learned it quite well and was able to use it well.
I began thinking of ways I could learn French better. It occurred to me that if I had a girlfriend I would be speaking French with her all the time and that would help me learn more French. I asked him if he had had a girlfriend since he had been there, and he indicated that he had. I made a fist with my right hand and hit it with my left hand. By so doing I was trying to ask him if he had had sex with her. He indicated that he had. But it occurred to me that he might be a virgin. He seemed inexperienced. So I didn't pursue the subject further.
As I continued thinking about my getting a girlfriend, I thought about Carolina. I had left her in the United States. I knew I used to speak Spanish a lot with her. I missed her and would like for her to be with me. But I realized I liked speaking French and I was going to stay in France. I would like for Carolina to come if she wanted to. But she was going to have to make the decision herself. If she came, she would have to speak French with me.
I was wondering how long I would stay her. I knew I have quite a bit of money and should be able to stay a long time. However I knew I would have to find a place to live, and would have to buy food. I felt uncertain about my future, but I knew this was where I needed to be.
