I had a couple of odd dreams one night last week. In the first dream, I'm driving on an interstate highway in St. Louis, looking for the local Mormon temple -- not to go do temple work, but just to drive past it. I know that the St. Louis temple is on a hill at the interchange of two interstates, at the location of the former Missouri Baptist College. When I arrive at the interchange, all I see on the hill is a shabby old Baptist church with a neon cross and neon signage.

In the second dream, I'm naked and seated in somebody's living room. I am part of a nudist Zen group. We are preparing to attend a conference in St. Louis. We dress and load up into a car caravan, then we drive up Interstate 55. End of dream.

You leave so many questions - was the neon lit? What color was it? How many were Zen? Young good looking group or old and wrinkled? What kind of car did you all get into? Your dreams are as puzzling to us as they are to you.

The neon was lit, and the zen people were youngish. I can't remember any details about the cars. I used to live in St. Louis, but it's kind of odd that both dreams were related to that city.

It sounds like all things considered, you'd rather be in St. Louis.

I like the dream metaphor for the temple; a cheap, cheesy run-down sham of a place that's trying to sell religion (neon signs).

Dave doesn't sound TOO anti religeous now, does he?
