Yesterday I ate something for breakfast that upset my stomach. So after Wordos I had some soda to try to calm it and ended up staying up later than I should have. The result was that, predictably, I slept in until 6:40.
Several dreams last night. The most fun image was when the Queen of Egypt, dressed in a fabulous wrap around dress of blue with raptor wing feather motifs, retired for the night. Standing in the hallway to her bedchamber was a line of about twenty women with curving horns with great wide bells playing a fanfare. Behind the horn chorus, the wall showed a painted frieze of women with shields (or else horns), the main pattern being an Egyptian red circle, with a wide black rim, repeating with each painted woman. Later, the dream involved a two-foot-wide blue crystal ball the Royal Egyptian family used for scrying -- my point of view changed to someone looking out of the watery depths of the crystal at them.
