I have been browsing around here, Mike, after not reading blogs for, oh, four years. And you still slay me, with your added specificity and so on.

It's an anxiety dream, Scott. If you dream about small animals, children, insects or your teeth falling apart, it's an anxiety dream. The baby is a small thing that need caring for, which is one of the most common elements of an anxiety dream. It's just a far more creative, inventive and disturbing anxiety dream than most people have. So congratulations, you even dream more brilliantly than most. Supposedly, every person you dream about is actually a facet of yourself, even if it is clothed in a person who is "real." In other words, whatever you were urging River to do, you were actually trying to get yourself to do, and whatever part of yourself is wrong or off is the baby, and all those people at your house are personifying the racket in your own head, the lack of peace, focus, rest, mental privacy. I know, you didn't want a dream analysis. Oh well, guess what. YOU GOT ONE.

I asked my father about this. I have some friends with a huge old Victorian house built in the 1880s. Old enough that the bathroom was added on to the side of the house at one point, old enough that you have that sense of, how does this structure keep going? Things tilt enough that doors no longer match up, there are odd angles to the floors, the windows are warped. Dad told me that the only thing that keeps a home that age from falling to bits is the presence of humans, the actual physical warmth they radiate through the winters, whether that's body heat or the furnace running. Without that, the house gets cold forever and starts falling apart. Make of it what you will, but I found it unbearably symbolic. Hi, Scott.

Thanks for your thoughts on the word "sacred." I think it's good to have a place to go.

That second shirt is a Cunningham Tartan board shirt, I think. Awesome.
