(Above) Dreamt my hairdresser shot someone and was going to jail.
The really bad part was that I was going to have to find another hairdresser.

Hillary forgot to shave her legs
(Larger)
(Above) Dreamt that Hillary Clinton was visiting her OB/GYN. The doctor left the door unlocked so a bunch of reporters and photographers opened the door and took pictures.
Hillary was horrified because she’d forgotten to shave her legs!
Then Kate wrote the story up and Laura published it in the S.F. Chronicle.

Gay line dancing church

(Larger)

(Above) Dreamt that a cute guy at a dinner party invited me to visit his church called “J.O.H.N.”.
It was for gay men who loved women, and lesbians who loved men, and where they did line dancing dressed as sailors from the 1940’s. The women had those big poufed-up, pinned-up 40s hairstyles and were wearing military uniforms.

L's Paris Car Repair Shop

(Larger)

(Above) I dreamt that my ex-husband was starting a blog about a car repair shop he was opening in Paris (huh?!) and he asked me to paint something representing Paris to use on the blog. First I thought of the Eiffel Tower, but knew that was trite and would be hard to draw so I decided to paint a fountain. I was working on it in my dream, trying to paint Paris fountains like Laura, and the painting wasn’t going very well.

I just realized that not only am I blogging about dreaming, now I’m dreaming about blogging! I’m so glad I’m on vacation now — I need it!

  1. OMG, I’d be rolling on the floor laughing, if it weren’t so early in the morning, and me just on my second cup of coffee! That hairdresser sketch is FABULOUS—so vivid and colorful and strong! And we know where your priorities are (your hair, of course!)
    Poor, poor Hillary—not a private moment anywhere! I cllicked on Kate’s name, thinking “so THAT’S what’s been keeping her busy the past few days… I thought it was Joseph!” And then I clicked on Laura, thinking ” oh, she has another friend named Laura.” I told you, it’s early and I’m only partially coffeed up ;D. Hey, while we’re at it, are you sure *I* didn’t paint that fountain?
    Thank you for a lovely morning read, Miss Jana. I’m a big fan of your dream sketches!

  7. What fun painting up your dreams. I dare not touch my dark mysteious crazy shifts of stories in the night! I guess some painters like Chagall referred to dreams for their ideas.

  8. So which is more real? the world of the blog, the world of the dreams, or the world of everyday waking? I’d have to say that you have some of the funniest dreams I’ve ever heard. You could sell them to the TV comics who have no screen writers now.
