2021, A Space Odyssey

Dream

Grams: cue Richard Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra"

I am about to depart on a one-way voyage to the stars. I wont be coming back and I will be travelling alone. My mission is to check out any habitable planets, beyond the Solar System, that humans can migrate to and live on. Before I depart I do a final round of visits to friends and family. When I visit the home of my sister-in-law and my late brother, I find in the large shed at their place, an aircraft fuselage that is being restored. Whilst I am travelling around friends and family a young lady steps forward and wants to volunteer as a companion to me on this voyage.

Dream notes and associations

I am about a to embark on a road trip to the Sunshine Coast to visit the family and deliver booty from the family home, which we sold last year just before the corona virus hit. Penny will be flying up as she cannot do long road trips like that. It is the 1st visit to the family on the Sunshine Coast in 9 or 10 years. We have met up with the family in that time but it has been in other places. I am really looking forward to the road trip. I would much rather drive there than fly there.
There is another journey that I will be embarking on later this year. About 3 years ago it was discovered that I had a Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma on my left kidney. It has been stable since then but it has started to grow in the past 6 months, and I am going to have to undergo a treatment of, either immuno-therapy or chemotherapy. I am still awaiting results of the latest tests. One small consolation is that I was told that I have strong healthy bones. I do intend to return from this journey.
2001, A Space Odyssey is my all time favourite movie. Not sure who the lady is, I think she was a stranger.
The sense of purpose reminds me of the dry dream and Buranbandjindurri dream.
Colin never attempted any aircraft restoration in his life as far as I am aware.

My feelings throughout the dream and on awakening

Sense of adventure, sense of purpose

Hi Lindsay, the themes within this dream – a voyage/journey/adventure, restoration and companionship sound super connected with your present circumstances. I’m sorry to hear about the growth of the Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Another consolation is the strong theme of restoration in this dream which sounds relevant. Watch this space in upcoming dreams and how/if the theme of restoration plays out.

I hope you enjoy your road trip!
