Canberra / Semi-Retired Volunteer


The night of the dream was over a weekend when Australia was planning to implement lockdown measures. Social distances not working, numbers of cases are rising, Australia clocked over 1000 at this point.

I am 47, female, living with my spouse in Canberra, Australia.


I dream I am asleep in my bed. I hear noises all around the house. Crowbars are breaking into doors. Floorboards are creaking. The wind howls against the building. I run to the windows. Figures in Mad Max style costumes are trying to get in. I don't see their faces. I feel dread. The night is dark. I awake, and the figures vanish.
