Episode 2: The dream of Theresa Pridemore
I was boarding a large plane… When I say plane, I want you to actually imagine a starship. Or a cruise ship in the sky. There were multiple tiers of passengers, with rows going 9 seats wide. It was an impressive construction of a future aircraft only currently accessible in dreams.
In my dream, I had my trademark pink hair. (When I had this dream, it had long since washed back out to blonde, a state that always makes me feel a little naked.) I was carting a bag past the ticket checker, following the velvet ropes up to the boarding hallway when a young woman stopped me. “Oh my god! I saw you in ‘Flat Track Around the World’. I love that movie.”
I was amazed that anyone recognized me, as my appearance in the film (well, at least the dreamtime version of it) was very brief. So far my real life attachment to the film is primarily through my art director title (not to mention my love for all things woman and my dear friend Cynthia Lopez).
It should be noted that, so far there has been no plan for me to have any on-camera time for the movie…Not because I’m not welcome to, it’s just that, by my view, I don’t really have anything to add personally to the narrative. Maybe at some point this will change, if my dream is anything to go on…
The girl asked me for my autograph and I gladly obliged. It felt nice to be recognized. Mostly, I was just happy the film was getting enough recognition that I might be remembered for my small part in it. I was a bit lucid in the dream, and remember noting to myself, “Remember this in the morning. This is an important dream.”
It had a sense of destiny to it. Then again, I’ve always felt this film did. I’m so happy to be a part of it.
Analysis (by Cynthia Lopez):
Flying on starships is always glamorous. Don’t forget your lipstick or your dream pillow.
