La Somnambula and the City Of Sleep

Okay so this is a super Neptunian few days – here’s to some Haute Neptune. This is absolute gorgeous. And there is more here.

 Forgotten masterpiece: “La Sonnambula and the City of Sleep” (”The Sleepwalker”), an opera adaptation by P. Craig Russell from Night Music #2, published by Eclipse Comics, February 1985.

La Somnambula

  “Certain people when they sleep go about as if awake”.

Well yes, quite.   A concept that becomes a 19th Century Opera but then a 1980s comic feels fiercely fluid and obviously super Neptune.

I had the most intense and powerful hypnotherapy session yesterday. Dug deep and hard and did some massive work. I was totally zonked afterwards. So Haute Neptune, indeed.

Been watching so much Walking Dead over the last few weeks I have now officially joined them.

there was one point after watching a season of twd – i forget which one – that i had zombie dreams almost every night for weeks afterward. same thing with breaking bad, since i binge watched it. those were better. jesse > zombies.

i actually just woke up from a nap (which are always at least 1 hour longer than planned) in which i had a really unsettling dream. there were zombs at the end. that hasn’t happened in a while. must shake this creepy off and write it in my journal.

Haha, I have had a few zombie dreams too, not normally a thing for me. I tend to dream with my husband if is a zombie dream as he is a big zombie dreamer. We don’t share dreams much, but I have done that with two exes as well at least once. I didn’t manage to be as interested in breaking bad no matter how I tried. All I could think was, selfish = bad, it’s a fucking easy equation and not one of the characters really got it. I like WDead because they are always trying to work out… Read more »

I feel sisterly towards Norman Reedus.. I don’t know he’s not for me. I actually quite like Andrew Lincoln. He’s not my type, but he kind of works that part and that southern accent pretty well! He is very good at playing prissy English men in tights too which is less sexy..

Beautiful! I was lucky enough to grow up with lovely, gorgeously illustrated comic books like Prince Valiant, Moebius’s work, and Buck Rogers. It really helped me explore the psychological and emotional terrain of people of planet Earth. They clearly want to be elsewhere a lot of the time.

I used to have the most technicolour vivid dreams for years and they stopped sometime around my 20s. Now and then but not like I once did. I miss them

Some very weird electric vibes happening around our street the last couple of days. Something is brewing.
I’m trying to stay haute neptune despite the urge to drink a bottle of wine every night and play alley cat. I’ve got too much real world going on right now so I have to stay alert. Spirit guides welcome to intervene at this point 😉

I’ve been having the most amazing dreams these last couple of nights… When I wake up, I need a good hour or so to process & integrate what just happened.

whoa, gorgeous.

i could happily sleep 12 hours a night and dream, dream, dream. 🙂
4 hours due to late-night internet addiction is a personal masochistic tendency lately, one i am trying to overcome . on that note, good night, beautifuls!

those illustrations are AMAZING, mm. thank you for sharing. for the past while i have been tired in the mornings and want nothing more than to go back to sleep. even though i sleep absolutely soundly every night, for at least 5 hours (usually more). i hypothesise that it’s because i like dreamland more than real life. it’s much more interesting. but even in my dreams i have similar inhibitions. ie i don’t communicate things with people. i even realise: “i’m in a fuqing dream – i can do what i want,” and should, because maybe it’s trying to be… Read more »

yeah, I have trouble sleeping, and eating, and writing but when I do sleep the dreams have been pretty epic. I’m doing myself a disservice by not writing them down. I remember them when I wake up but need to get back into the practice of writing them down.

I slept from about 5:30 until midnight tonight. Woke up to a nice little thunderstorm. About to go to bed at about, eh, 2:30. Up at 6 for work at 7!
Last night, I slept from 7-6. Working early is abysmal. I’m built for 3rd shift. I’ll take all your sleep, thank you.

My sleep has been SHOCKING this past week. For 3 days I will sleep 2-3.5 hours and than I will oversleep one day ensuring my sleep schedule remains off-track.

I am chalking it down to the 3 week flu which prevented me attending work and that when my one-week vacation came up this week (yay to movies and museums!) my little boy came down with the horrible cough I had so I have been home all week.

I feel so…blegh. Thankfully it’s overcast. If it was summer and super bright I would have melted by now…

“Certain people when they sleep go about as if awake”

Yes, absolutely I feel like I live in another world when I sleep. I was thinking this morning how my dreams makes more sense to me after I’ve read my daily astro & MM’s email. It’s like my dreams get something I don’t.
