... and I haven't watched one in many years. Whenever I see the trailer to a new one on TV or at the movies, I'm astonished just how disturbed the writer/producer of this piece must be. Human imagination seems to have no boundaries, no matter which way you take it.
I was 16 when my boyfriend and I went to watch "The Silence of the Lambs". Jodie Foster's horrified face followed me around for a very long time. I watched the movie again a year later at a New Year's party. We were a bunch of kids, and we made fun of everything. It really was kind of odd.
Well, as mentioned above I haven't seen a horror movie in years, and I have absolutely no intention of ever seeing one again. What is really disturbing though, is the fact, that I was dreaming about "The Silence of the Lambs" just last night. All night long. Single scenes... the especially awful ones. Apparently I have them memorized like it just happened. I woke up every so often, scared out of my head, then fell asleep and went right back into the same dream.
I generally believe, that dreams are there to work through things, to process information from our daily life, good things or bad. And I know, sometimes I dream completely useless things too. But last night was not just useless. Last night was downright disturbing, and there is no reason whatsoever for this awful dream.
I'm still trying to get those images out of my head. Yuck!!

Today it's back to Village. Just for me, as my kids no longer take classes on Tuesday. I can't say I'm ready quite yet. But I'm also strangely excited about seeing my people. Besides... going back to Village means that in 10 weeks it's summer. And that, my friends, is reason enough to celebrate. :)
