Absurd motor-dreams

#1

Post by Starling »

[Mods, feel free to move this to "Off Topic" if needed]

Do you dream about motorsports? I do. I dream about a lot of stuff, actually; and repeatedly, so even a mundane dream becomes a nightmare through sheer repetition.

Recurring dreams:

- Senna did not die at Imola but in France (or maybe Monaco? a tunnel is involved) and the circumstances of his death were different (someone else was involved) but not less gruesome. At least I think so; every time I have this dream, I do my best to avoid knowing anything about it, even though someone is forcing me to look at the accident.

- Looking for Senna memorabilia. Themed clothing, posters, figurines. Trying the sleaziest dives to get something unique. Recently I wanted a model that had something to do with Optimus Prime too. Then where do I put them? I need to refurbish my house- And will these clothes make me look fat? (Yes. I have a Senna T-Shirt and let's just say I got the size wrong.)

- Driving an F1 car, even though I can barely drive my old automatic in real life. Last night was pure delirium. I was scheduled to drive somewhere cold and/or in the desert (of course) and the start for our cars was similar to that of bobsleigh, you jump in and take off. No idea how this would work in the actual GP, because I did not get that far. I did the first quali session, then on the second session there was a sort of metal elbow at the start that prevented me to take off. I was mad.

The best F1 dream, and one of my absolute best: I had it a few days after Senna's death. I dreamed that he welcomed me inside a paddock and showed me around. I did not want to leave, but at last he led me to the fence gate, kissed me on the cheek and let me out, closing the gate behind me. It was not my place.

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had...

Hmm, can't say that I do very often!

I sometimes have dreams about my old race car. Stuff like waking up late and missing the start of the race I was competing in. Or being unable to find my way to the track. Or walking away from my car for a while and then being unable to find it.

I've been away for a while because my Mom was bedridden, and later passed away. Don't be sad, drink to her and Senna who was her fave driver (Alonso too, but he's alive!)

The day before we placed Mom's urn in the family tomb, I had a terrible dream. I woke up thinking THANK GOD Senna died (also) from a suspension bar piercing his forehead.

WARNING - DISTRESSING



In my dream the suspension bar sliced through his head, so when they lifted the helmet, half his skull and brain came away with it. The dream was way more detailed but I'll spare you.



END OF DISTRESSING PART

Now I hope I'll get closure and I'll be more present. Maybe with more weird dreams :D

I get something similar PT. If I dream about anything motor racing related it's always a kart race and I always miss the start. Something stupid like I can't get my race suit on. I haven't seriously raced for nearly a decade but I still get the odd dream like that. It might stem from the time I was late leaving home to a meeting and drove like a madman 150 miles to Clay Pigeon circuit, pulling into the carpark just as the driver briefing was starting. Just made it!
