now that I've heard about the tornados traveling west across southern louisiana at 50mph I am going to go to bed and try not to dream about tornados. at some point during the night last night I was under low cloud cover and thought to myself if you just don't think about them they won't appear because I knew I was dreaming but even when I know I'm dreaming I still don't want to see one.
I am not sure what they represent other than a fate worse than death. I guess that's enough. oddly I don't dream of my childhood conception of hell nearly as often as I dream of tornados. I guess that would be too direct for dream language.
best wishes to the gulf coast.
