TA mate! I have been having other peoples dreams of late...total strangers and their encounters. Bloody weird to say the least, but a great source of inspiration to be sure.
More intrigue in the next chapter!

I appreciate the simple, dreamy, and seamless style. Takes my mind straight to the cicadas, flies, and intense heat, vultures, crows, hawks, sheep, goats, cows, snakes, blackberry bushes to hide your plants in, and rivers taken over by Asian carp. Gives direct insight into the effects of the drought on farmers. The protagonist is relatable and admirable. Makes me miss my dog and long for a hearty meal. The human experience. Looking forward to more!

Also, there is something to be said for the case of the collective consciousness. While the idea seems pseudo-scientific (and certainly not ‘Western’) at face value, I think the Dreamtime tales, and other cultural and religious ideas, are really on to something here. Every culture has its own traditions so different in their expression, and yet human nature always comes back to same idea, the idea of the collective consciousness (even alone, under the influence of psychedelic drugs, like Ayahuasca), represented by divine symbols in dream logic (e.g. ‘God’) and interpreted by most as literal or inconsequential. We all have deep roots within us from our ancestry, expressed in dream symbology, as Jung argued, and are conducive to our growth, such that we have the potential to perform and cultivate any skill within the realm of human and physical possibility. Perhaps impossible to describe, as I just tried, and better demonstrated, as you have done.

Crikey mate gotta hide those magnificent plants somewhere...
I get more into the dreamtime aspects later on with an original countryman,
but I am casting a wide net, to be drawn up later, covering many different people
from all nationalities and walks of life. I appreciate your insight, can't quite figure
If you're a psych major or just a brilliant cunt, but my appreciation of your work is
equally matched. Onya Ollie!

Excellent descriptions of a dried out land, and a man and dog left to keep each other company. You certainly surprised me with the revelation that it was a dream!

Ta Hulls!
It is going somewhere, although each chapter seems convoluted,
It will be a compendium that comes back around, not unlike a boomerang. ..lol
