Hi Kitty,

I recommend buying and reading THE BOOK OF DISQUIET (try to find the English Serpent’s Tail edition) because so much of this diary is on dreams and how they relate to real life, also on the difference between day and night dreaming.

You could have a point on the language angle. When are we impregmated by a foreign tongue? When do we know this? When you start having dreams in a foreign tongue! And the mistakes we make are not that important, that is for the teachers who in a bad sense are often the police of language (so repressive, not opening students at all).

In my case I am not Bilingual.

I have an active knowledge of 4 tongues: Dutch, French, English and German.

I have a passive knowledge of a few others (Portuguese and Spanish, Italian I consider 2 difficult to say about it I can manage reading it).

Interesting thing happens when you switch between languages: sometimes you DO NOT remember a word in your mother tongue BUT know the word in another tongue. I have stopped asking me questions about the why’s, it is as silly as trying to decipher dream images ...

About your idea that Baudhuin visited me: without ANY doubt.

A few months after his suicide I was working during an evening in the Fine Arts Center in Brussels for a concert and I saw the image of a huge wild boar on the walls of the concert hall, a day dream for sure or an evening dream but I was awake! I smiled, said okay guy, you are telling me I have to forgive you!

The thing I like most about your work is your ability to express the importance of the dream in few words, moreover, I mean the actual profundity of it stamped into important words. My dream journals are filled with cumbersome details and almost muddling my point at times...It is also what I love about Joseph Cornell's dream logs....

"2 tiny ceramic animals came tumbling out as though the ages had hewn them out a shelter"

I read your blog Guido.

Clearly you have talent that lies within words and language. Maybe that is what happens when one is bilingual. Maybe I should learn a new language and broaden a bit.

Interesting about the boar story. Perhaps it was a visit from your friend.

Sadly I have no dream art to share today.....
