Woke this morning several times, and went back to sleep to strange dreams. My mother was in my dream again, and this time we were moving with loads of stuff, stuff she’d handpicked but which didn’t seem to matter anymore: blond shelves, and chairs... We were moving to two different places, and she had been planning hers with me for a long time, gathering all the stuff she would need in her new place. Something had happened, some plan fallen through, and she no longer knew where she was going. I was surprised and asked her, “Where was it you had planned to go?”, but she just looked at me, and then I woke up. My mother, Tammy Narena Ressman, passed away five years ago, and I am just now figuring out how to make the film about her and her amazing work. Mom, where was it you had planned to go? I’m going to just list and present her work, in a new soon-to-be up website: She will be alive again, virtually. I wonder if she would approve or disapprove of my plans to disseminate her stuff everywhere I possibly can...
It was four thirty in the morning, and so I got up, opened the window for the cats, and went back to bed, back to sleep, with more strange dreams.
When it was morning, I was finally able to make the phone calls to London, finish arranging the storage of my things (and a lot of her things), and talk to my new tenant about the plumbing issue in the flat, apparently a minor fix, which they had postponed electively. Then I got onto the DMV site, and apparently it had been hijacked, so I wasn’t able to log in and get my driving record for the new job I had an interview for at 11. No worries. They didn’t ask for my driving record, I just thought might be nice...
And then, I’m sitting in the waiting room and reading the paper, and an article catches my eye: 3 expert tries at fixing a 3 year olds sleep disorder, and the 4th just diy, and none of them really worked. And I’m reading this article and thinking: I could do that much better. They missed a few things... I have a few tricks up my sleeve with sleep. I want to become the Sleep Coach, or even better: The Dream Coach. For children, teens, and adults with sleep disorders... This just might be the topic for my new book. Is it now book number 5?

London House, front door-
And the last jar of blackberry jam I made a month ago is coming to an end, delicious on top of my home baked gluten free toast, and just in time as the fig tree outside my front door starts to burst with peach sized juicy soft fruit. The tree on the other side of the porch, with the smaller figs, will ripen later. I am ready with my newly found stainless steel drying racks to make a year’s worth of dried figs...
