Subject: The Bob Fosse Dream
Last night I had this dream that I was going through Bob Fosse's things. Now
I don't know shit about Bob Fosse. I hate musical theatre and dance with all
my soul. I saw "All That Jazz" once and thought it was stupid, but that's it
as far as my knowledge or interest of Bob Fosse goes. In this dream I was alone in his expensive and fashionable New York town house the day that he died. And I was going through his shit, like drawers and stuff. And they were full of this great stuff. Fancy jewelry, cuff links, little gadgets and mementos. I was frantically trying to decide what I would keep and what I would leave for the appraisers. I felt like I was under a time constraint so I was very anxious. There was a whole drawer full of watches. A big rack of nice ties. The dream was very vivid and real. I could tell you the layout of the townhouse and the colors of everything. What does this dream mean Dawn? You are one of my smart friends. I fear for my sanity. Please advise.
Wow. Sounds very cool. You could write a book.

What I "feel" about your dream is this:
You identify with Bob Fosse's success. Your success will be/should be as his. As if a son or friend of the art and discipline, therefore you are legitimately going through his things as would a relative before the barracudas get in there. The reason you had the dream? Because his success should and will be your success, though in a different subset of the plays and writing world. No insanity there at all. And the fact that you remember dreams shows that you are not going insane. Insane people don't remember their dreams, and a lot of times don't dream...which is the brain's release...so they go insane.
No worries. Grin and write the dream into a play. It'll be good.
i'm pretty good at dream analysis sometimes but this one fails me. one thing i love about dreams is that sometimes they really are telling about what is going on in your psyche and other times they are total nonsense, and still other times they are a combination of portents and nonsense. i don't know really know who bob fosse is, although i know the name.

Interesting dream. I had one last night. There were all these monkeys. I had watched a show about the Jonestown Mass Suicide on the Discovery Channel. There's this guy named Simon who lives near me. He used to be a medic in the Army. He was in Afghanistan right after 9/11. He rides motorcycles now. Him and his brother rode the Baja 500 this year. His brother fell during the race and broke his leg. Simon set it with duct tape.
Murray, the Canadian chiropractor in my town, says Simon is, "more interesting than the Discovery Channel." Murray played Jesus once in a "Living Last Supper" his church put on. "Hey," he says to me, "I'm playing Jesus, eh!"
So all these monkeys are dressed up in human clothes. Like the monkeys you see on TV. And they're all dead. And I just know this is some sort of Monkey Suicide Pact or something.
That's a real interesting dream you had about Tommy Tune's houseboat. I think it means you ought to check your carbon dioxide detector and make sure the batteries are OK. You ever research how many people die of carbon monoxide poisoning during harsh winters?

I thought for a while about this and racked my brain trying to think of anything that would help with understanding what your dream was about... unfortunately, nothing came to mind. Have you thought anymore about it? I've had really unexplainable vivid dreams before and fortunately they have been about women and not dead, obscure people. The unconscious mind is always trying to tell us things and usually we disregard them as insanity. This is really strange and I don't think that I will be much help. Smart friend huh? You've been hanging around too many janitors. Sorry that I'm not much help.

I have new hope for the mms musical. maybe this ties in. maybe we're slated to make success with this damned thing.
not long ago someone gave me the score to south pacific. i thought, "Sheyaeh. what the fuck will i do with this?" then our last conversation you talked about studying the musical form. I thought, "where the fuck am I going to get a book on the musical form?" Then I realized I have this damned score. I can study it directly. I didn't tell you but the night matt talked about your date and "some enchanted evening" I was mapping out the structure of this song. Weird.
Pretty standard form, by the way. intro-AABABA or something like that. I've got a similar structure for the mannequin song.
Remember that south pacific was the first time we all spent together, you me, matt and lori. sorry for the mention, but the coincidence is there.
It's all pointing to something
