Renaissance at Morgan and Lindsey

Rarely do I post one of my own dreams any more.  Though they can be vivid, they are often forgotten before I can write them down.  This one survived.

I was visiting a shopping mall that, “in real life,” became defunct years ago.  Somehow, some of the stores had survived or maybe had been resurrected or re-opened.  In particular, a Morgan and Lindsey store I visited years ago was in business again.  (M&L was a “five and dime,” a precursor to the modern “dollar stores.”)

The store resembled an upscale bookstore I also visited many years ago (apparently now also out of business, shuttered by competition from larger stores such as Barnes & Nobles as well as Amazon), and mostly dealt in rare vinyl records and sometimes CDs or tapes.  In particular, they had a rare EP by Renaissance (lead singer Annie Haslam) with Carpet of the Sun on one side and Ocean Gypsy on the other.  I woke up, saddened by the loss of these many old stores and places and one of my favorite bands.  However, in researching the links for this entry, I did discover that Renaissance is back together again.  Maybe time to buy a copy of their latest project?

Let’s be clear: it is a dream about loss and growing old.  I suspect, too, that it is a dream about death, particularly of places and things around me as well as people and, eventually, my own.  Maybe it is suitable for a dream between the Winter Solstice and the Capricorn New Moon.

  1. Interesting dream – especially since the group from the dream is moving forward. Could it be about leaving the past behind?
