I have several recurring dreams. One of them is about a city. It's not a real city. It's a dream city, but it has buildings and streets like any other city. Sort of. Sometimes the streets are narrow and sometimes they're wide. It depends on whether I'm walking or driving in the city.
The buildings are like other buildings in other cities. Almost. There are subtle differences. The building I visit most in these dreams is a movie theater. It's old and shabby, sort of like a second-run theater from the '70s. I pass by it in nearly every dream of the city, and sometimes I stop and look it over. I've even been to a movie or two inside it.
There are several used bookstores in the city, and I spend a lot of time looking for them. I've been to all of them at least once, but usually I have trouble finding them. When I do find them, they might have only one or two books, or there will be a lot of books but nothing of interest to me. One of the stores has two floors of books but only few books on each floor. When I do find a lot of books, I find that I can't read the titles on the spines.
I've dreamed of this city for years now. Some of the buildings are as familiar to me as the real buildings I see every day. Especially the movie theater.
I have no idea what any of this means, if anything. It's just a dream, after all.
