Dreams and Vampires

Last night I dreamed that my mother invited this rather well-known Vampire to a house-warming party for me. There are other details of the dream I remember, like the nature and location of the house: what it looked like, what the yard was like etc. But the thin that really stands out for me is my mother inviting this Vampire. Which now that I think of it, I guess she really couldn;t well do, because it has to be the person who lives in the house who does the inviting for the invitation to be effective.

But the thing is, I've been dreaming A LOT about Vampires, and this particular Vampire, for a long time now. The night before last, a Vampire offered to buy me a pair of malachite earrings. He said to me, "If I bought these for you would you wear them?" and I said "Only if they weren't too big." And several nights ago I dreamed I was at a party at a bookstore in town with this Vampire and Alan Ginsberg.

I don;t get what's up with all these Vampires in my subconscious. Okay, we HAVE been watching a lot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVDs in our spare time. But we've done that before and it never affected me this way. Is it that I feel like my blood is being sucked out? or that the people aroound me are soul-less? or what? Is it because I feel threatened or feel like I need a supernatural protector or is it just a projection of someone I know in the conscious world who sucked out my soul, of whom I've been thinking a lot lately? Don;t know. But it puzzles me and is actually beginning to disturb me to the point where, when this Vampire shows up in my dreams I begin to wonder about it and then I wake up. Which, in some book I read, is not helpful. This book said you should stay with your dreams, however disturbing, and see where they take you.

So I guess I'm going on a ride with the Undead. I'll let you know how it goes...
