Wow! I had a mild premonition that someone-- most likely ++, though--
would post just that (see the 'Try This' thread).
Isn't that something?
Well I really did-- both the premo, as well as the unusual architecture
in my sleep-dream...
It was of an old, dilapidated, partially gutted multi-story urban
near-heritage highrise. with the iron girder posts and beams
I went (flew?) in, and walked about 3 or four rooms into its bowels,
when it suddenly opened up into a stone-cathedral-ceilinged
shopping-mall with multi-storied walkways around its perimeter. I also
managed to float somewhat toward its ceiling (I seem to be having many
dreams where I'm sort of flying/floating) to get a closer look at it.
Do androids dream of electric sheep? Do architects/architectural

thunderstorms here and there and in the distance, with the slowly
setting sun shining through the clouds where it could to add to the
drama. Quite the sight and mood it gave!
I've also had more than one dream with the same or similar landscapes.
One landscape in particular that I rememeber was similar to a real and
familiar one, while others seemed completely foreign.
Yeah, I can relate to that. I get verty vivid dreams, complete with
smells, and orchestral scores! It can get quite bizarre.
But th eplaces are orderly - when movies try to do dream sequences, they
often make things out of proportion, or change the proportions - I don't
get that at all.
THe buildings are usually modern, tho'. No castles, never any "haunted
mansion" things. No alien landscapes, either. Just wild stuff going on in
