I just had a sudden memory from last night’s dreaming, about Robert and I driving around in a variety of vehicles and in all kinds of weather.  Two instances stand out in my recollection most prominently, and I was at the wheel in both with Robert as a passenger.   At one point, it was night and I was driving in snow and icy slush and came to a steep downhill.  We lost traction but I was able to slow the car (probably a ’79 Chrysler Newport) and keep her straight.  Slowed but not stopped and still had enough speed to slip through the intersection at the bottom of the hill, so I ran a red light.  Going up the hill on the other side of the light was slow but we had traction all the way up, or as long as I can remember.  Dreams for me generally flash about.  There are usually never any smooth transitions between scenes.  So the next thing I remember, there were boulders and mud which requires proper wheel placement and an acute awareness of the vehicle’s balance, which was a type of Jeep (probably a Willy’s) that Robert had been driving, but I was to get over this latest obstacle.  There was a bit of a hump to the pile, like there had been a rock slide over the road, and I picked our way up carefully, not wanting to slide backwards.  Reaching the crest, though, I gauged a more general route down, bumping and bouncing but making it to smoother dirt below.  The other parts of the dream had some heavier traffic and my husband was driving and there were some parking issues outside of a bar or something, just muddled up dreamy time stuff.  🙂
