I was at my aunt and uncle's lake place to celebrate my birthday. (This, in real life, was a very important place to me when I was growing up, when my grandparents lived there). I don't recall who all was there, but there was one aunt constantly fussing over food preparations, shoving more food on the table just as the previous meal was being cleared. I went outside, and my aunt had so many garden statues and other yard stuff lying around I could hardly walk around the house. When I looked out at the lake, which was frozen over because it was winter, I was dismayed to see a monster all-terrain vehicle rally on the lake right in front of the house! They were even using part of the hill for a starting ramp. I was the only one who seemed concerned about seeing it, and I went back inside the house to dig for my digital camera so I could blog about it. (Yes. Blogging has officially taken over my dreams.) It took a long time to find the camera in my backpack, and when I finally found it there was a small group of people standing on top of the hill watching the ATV rally.
This is where the most bizarre thing appeared. I looked up in the sky, and there was a comet or meteor-like object moving rapidly across the sky, leaving a trail of bright white lights behind. It was bigger and brighter than any meteor I've ever seen, though, and more like a cluster of lights. "Look!" I yelled. "Something's burning out across the sky!" Then the cluster of lights stopped moving, and fomed into a large vertical ring that was rotating like a wheel. After that, the lights arranged into a variety of kaleidoscope-like patterns. Then I realized they were moving towards me rapidly. I swear I felt them hit me right between the eyes. I awoke with a sudden expelling of breath, like I'd had the wind knocked out of me.
I don't recall feeling terror, or maybe I did not have time to react.
This is the most vivid, bizarre dream I've had in a long time. I cannot recall any real life display like those lights. No, I wasn't drinking. Not much, anyway.
