I'm packing clothes and otherwise trying to get ready to leave with Peter & Jerri. They are my best friends from the Kinetic Sculpture Racing community, plus five years in BRC together. When Jerri called, she informed me what was going to happen today -- did not ask or discuss. She took charge of me. I'm sure glad she and Peter met.

As I type this posting, I am speaking to Elliot. He is fine and very upbeat. He's in Davis CA with friends and settled in fine. He brought his bike with him to tool around town and explore the area.
Good news and a nice way to end the day!! :D

I finally read this thread today. I've pretty much avoided it like the plague.

Elliot I can't thank you enough for posting openly about your feelings. I'm both thankful because now you have a HUGE support system of people who are aware and love you (and kidnap you, ha!) and also, selfishly thankful, because you expressed feelings I have felt that I could never have spoken so eloquently. So you are not only helping yourself you are helping people you don't even know. Thank you. <3

If you are ever over towards the SF area more I'd love to grab a coffee or whatever with you. :) I'm in Vallejo (about an hour west from Sac).

I'm so happy your friends kidnapped you, that just made my day!

Love you!

perhaps more so than a heart attach, sue, since i have some control over this.

i'm 'fine' at peter n jerri's.

this puter is awkward for me to use, so this may be only a few lines.

visited the scene of the pepper sprayng . bicycle distance from pnj's house. strange mood there.

-------------------------

i murdered my father last night. in a dream. may be the first time in my life i dreamed of him. We were back in the house where I grew up, and we fought with fists and whatever was at hand. I beat his head with a vacuum cleaner. I won. He died.

So... "How do I feel about that? and What do I think that means?

----------------------------

Staying at P&J's is nothing new for me. I often stay over here for a day or two. They are my "outpost in town" while I live in the country.
so I am comfortable here.

I've wanted to live here in Davis for ages. College town. Enlightened people. You can go anywhere on a bicycle. (Yes, I brought mine.)

I dreamed of learning french and woke up practicing words last week.

I had some similarly strange dreams lately, forgotten my best example now.

I hope you have a good thanksgiving, Elliot.

I find--personally--that the emotions of the dream are a good place to start. Was the defeat of your father a triumphant thing, in the dream? Or not a triumph, but a relief?

"I won. He died." is an interesting choice of words. Maybe your father represents depression strictly for the duration of this dream (depression having practically its own life, at times) and you are acting out crushing your "opponent". But if your relationship with your father was adversarial in real life, maybe your psyche wants to defeat him and let go.

Hard to say, without knowing you better. What do you think?

Sounds like a good place to be.

Man, I keep thinking this thread is going to be about the band ST ... but this is some serious shit. I wish life wasn't so fucking serious sometimes.

It's Thanksgiving time in the US, and as much BS as that all might (and does) represent, I'm all about giving meaning to giving thanks and praises.

Today, I am thankful to read about people that care about other people right here on ePlaya. That is some really cool shit! Serious shit, too ... so maybe the seriousness isn't all bad.

I get so conflicted, too. I feel the love. But, do you all feel the love? I hope so ... it can be so awesome. Seriously

So, on the eve of Thanksgiving, I am thankful that Maryanimal started this very thoughtful thread. I don't think she realizes how many people she helped here with her kindness.

I know there are some that are teetering during the holidays (God knows I hate them), but as long as there is a place people can vent and friends can communicate with them, then things will work out fine.

Maryanimal, I would like to raise you up on a chair and parade you around Black Rock City. You're awesome my dear lady! :D

I am EXTREMELY thankful that...

MA started this thread!!!XXX

My hero Elliot answered me! XXXOOOXXX

I got such an awesome family here and on playa AND in RL as well.

That even tho things are the shits there are still bright things that make me happy and keep on going!

That electrolux showed up hoover in the 14th annual BRC "beat the shit out of your ol' man" competition... 4 to 3. (Yeah, interesting dream - both the circumstance and the way you describe it are clues to its meaning... )

Hel, I'm even thankful for Larry and Andie and Mike and MG and all you guys, and hell, even the guy who loaded "Exploding man", Kim, and intro'd me to the Man over a decade ago... Love y'all.

I'm just thankful as hell right now. Thanks!

I'd like to help raise that chair, if I may.


As for the dream, I think you just did battle with your old self with the one tool known for removing garbage from your life and allowing you to breathe more easily. Seems like a good omen to me that you actually won!
