“Guernica” by Pablo Picasso, 1937

Dreams from the LORD 2011-2018
16 March 2018

Last night I had a dream where I was sitting in the back seat of this car.  My parents were driving the car.  We pulled into the driveway of this big house.  It was my older brother’s house.  His wife was in the front seat of their car.  I walked up to the window and waved at her.  She didn’t wave back.  She had the look of abject misery.  When my dad walked up to the widow, she pulled down this visor so that she could not be seen or bothered.

We walked into the house.  There were many people in the house (my brother and his wife are very social; my parents were very social); they looked like friends and relatives.  My brother saw me and walked up to me and we shook hands.  It seemed like the eyes of all of these people were overlarge and their smiles were too big; it seemed like their facial features were distorted and almost grotesque–similar to a cubist painting like “Guernica” by Picasso.

I did not step into the living room of the house; I stayed in the front entrance–I kept my distance.  For some reason I was wearing these baggy snow pants over my other pants (I felt out of place), so I sat down on this chair and pulled the baggy pants off.

The two things that I remember most about the dream:  there were many people in the house and my brother’s wife was absolutely miserable–she reminded me of Voltaire on his deathbed (two months before Voltaire died, Voltaire KNEW he was going to hell).
