The audience would love a little elaboration on this.
Freud. Dreams with "chests" and "drawers" are sexual in nature, the phonetic words represent the repressed thoughts. I paired the Dali painting with the notion of the "body" presented in the dance number which, IMHO, is responsible for initiating the vast majority of our thoughts, although we'd like this NOT to be the case (we like to believe that our mind is mostly "independent").
I love dance... a kind of Dionysian representation of our thoughts and desires that by-passes the linguistics associated with the neo-cortex and is interpreted more or less directly as "body-language".
My daughter used to be able to watch a ballet, write down the moves and positions, and then replicate the dance through her written choreography. Dreams, like dance, have a definite language. The shadows and lighting in the video both adds and subtract both from our interpretation and our ability to interpret.
Of course, the next few posts also involve a little Freudian psychology (and Dali) as well. Some you might recognize, but other parts are purely personal.
Did you intentionall misspell "openned"?I had a dream last week that I was preparing some wonderful hot tea on a cold fall day. It was beautiful outside. I knew that I was anticipating a visitor, but I didn't know who.A knock at my door revealed Zach Galifianakis. We sat and talked for just a moment, then he brushed my hair by the fire. (I don't have a working fireplace.) It was the happiest dream I'd had in months. I woke up SO happy!
It's mispelled???? ;-)
ps - All dreams are wish fullfillments... and I'd best leave it at that.
Don't leave it at that!!!I'm sure it's sexual because your interpretation is Freudian. ;-)I thought it was a very sweet dream, which would probably have made Freud smirk.However, something sweet and heartwarming (tea and hairbrushing by a fire) between two people could definitely turn into something more...Freudian.
I'm sure it was very sweet. Repression keeps us "civilized". The "pose" in the Dali painting is one of denial, but the "meaning" of the "open drawers" is something else entirely.
