Dreaming of the North

I had a rather interesting dream last night that involved me going back up North. I was in a house with a bunch of the other teachers and I was there to work. It was during the warmer months and there was no snow. They wanted to have a "felt" party which was really just a big party where everyone had to wear something with felt on it. There was a pair of purple felt boots. I didn't want to be part of the party for some reason but there were a lot of people around already so I went to my room. There were three beds of different sizes in the room. Two were side by side and the other was positioned so that it all formed an "L" shape. There was young asian man on the single bed. He was watching somethingo n the television. I didn't know why he was in my room. There was a needle that he was shooting up with. He had AIDS. The injection had something to do with that. I left the room to go somewhere else. Someone asked me if I realized what was showing up on my TV bill. The guy had watched some pretty nasty stuff. I realized that I wasn't happy and that something was missing. I realized that this wasn't where I was supposed to be. I was supposed to be in Toronto with Jboy. I missed him terribly. I knew that if I could just stick it out a little longer I'd be able to get a nice amount of money for us. I couldn't figure out how I was going to pay for the flight back. I looked out the window and saw a few evergreens. I knew I was in Churchill, Manitoba and there was a city with some tall buildings off in the distance. I said "At least I'm above the treeline" very wistfully.

What is strange about this dream is the fact that I'd had another dream about being up North again just a few days ago. I believe there was also something wrong with the flight (I had trouble getting a plane or something) and I remember that I was having trouble figuring out where I was supposed to be in the school. The school didn't look anything like any of the schools I'd worked in. I found some cubby holes in the staffroom and found out that I was supposed to be subbing for Wayne. It seemed like a lot of the teachers were gone. I don't remember much else.

I think part of me really misses the life and friends that I had up North. If it weren't so expensive I'd probably go and visit my friends up there but there's just no way that I could afford it. I'm not interested in moving back up there but maybe I just miss the quiet and solitude sometimes.
