Now Aubrey needs to buy a few things for a school project.
Bought three boxes of ice cream from the Sitio Catacutan Magnolia depot: Ube-Caramelized Sugar, Mango-Dark Chocolate, and Mangoes and Cream. Also bought a carton of broccoli juice and will see how the granddaughters will like it.
Finally coordinating with Gallery Frames the pick-up of Sarah's three paintings from my studio. They then need to be properly packed and shipped to Paris.
At Shopwise you always need to take care of two things:

--The cashier will charge you for items that she set aside for herself.
--The bag boy will pocket a small item from your bag.
Back from jalan-jalan and major groceries. Been putting this off for a while. It'd gotten so that I'd come across something in the house and tell myself, "We're running out of that."

Now we have more than enough of everything.

But I would rather that you fell in love with me long before you fell asleep.

A great day to go jalan-jalan and do groceries because everyone is either at school or at work and the city is all MINE!

If you need to hear some mild bitchiness to perk you up, watch May the Best House Win on etc. Just finished watching the Sunday marathon.
All of my visitors are pre-scheduled, at least a week in advance, and the time I usually agree to see them is 2:00 PM. From 3:00 PM onward my time is for myself and my family. The rest of the time I am resting, sleeping, writing, or painting.

Please do not show up spontaneously and expect to be let in. It just won't happen.

"...I dreamt I designed two unique bathrooms with very modern see-through fiberglass material . One is colored fuschia -lavander and the other , mint green. Only the exterior stood out in the dream . I didn't see the inside . It is not clear whether I owned the house or not ."

My reply:

Hi __________,

Your dream as recorded is a mere fragment and has no narrative, but, based on what you gave, here is my interpretation:

Your psyche is telling you that you need cleansing at this time: spiritual cleansing (lavender), which can be fully attained only if you let go of a romantic relationship (fuchsia) that continues to haunt your subconscious, and physical cleansing (mint green, or any shade of green, usually representing healing that is needed by the body).

It is possible that you did not see the inside because of the defense mechanism denial, or because, at this time, you do not know what form each cleansing must take.
Regina visited and gave me a ruby tumblestone pendant for my birthday. She also gave me a leg and foot massage, which made me drowsy but energized me after.

She is one of the few witches in the Philippines whose vision and energy are real and reliable. When she looks at my antiques, she tells me about their various histories, all of which are spot on. Some of the most effective items she'd given me in the past are a porcelain, Japanese bishimonten statuette and a copper bangle for protection, and a variety of antique snuff bottles and porcelain bowls. Today she said that my mother's spirit sent her over to give me a healing massage

Some time last year Regina visited Malaysia and brought me, among other things, a bottle of kasturi hitam (black musk oil). I placed the bottle inside my potions cabinet and then planned to take it along with me for a GMA7 interview on gayuma last February--but couldn't find the bottle. This afternoon I told Regina that I'd lost the bottle. She said that a black elemental borrowed it because it was attracted to the oil's black color. She also said, the elemental promised to return it promptly.

After Regina left today I opened the potions cabinet again. Sure enough, the bottle of kasturi hitam was there.

Quiet Sunday afternoon. I think I'll sit inside the small loggia and write a bit.
Learned two things today:

1) Filling the roof deck with plants to look like a forest is not appreciated by my granddaughters; they prefer that the roof deck have a lot of clear space.

2) When facebook Friends from other counties message me and ask me to go visit them, they are not making small talk; they are serious.
Aubrey back from her senior prom. The students stayed overnight at the hotel a la Prom Night minus the serial killer. They'd had lunch already.

Lunch with Angelique.

Watered the plants. Most therapeutic.

The problem with most students of magic is that they blindly gravitate toward teachers who are big failures in life.

An authentic teacher of magic must first be successful in life, and only after that in magic.
Good morning, Cubao!

Watched the replay of Public Enemies on HBO because I am a Johnny Depp fan. Aside from Johnny Depp, toward whom I am biased, the success of the film hinged on superb editing.

The editing actually reminded me of Alfred Hitchcock's works.

Our family dentist's associate passed away. So sad. I recall that she used to stand in for our family dentist whenever our family dentist was not available. I also recall that, some time last year, before the associate fell ill and was hospitalized, I gave our family dentist a necklace of antique, chevron beads and the associate looked on wistfully. I was secretly embarrassed and wished that I'd brought something for the associate as well. Now it's too late, and it's another lesson that we should make others happy whenever we can, or that, whenever we pass on an opportunity to make someone happy, the opportunity never comes again.

Our family dentist went to their hometown to attend the funeral and came back only yesterday morning.

Good day, Cubao!

A crazy day. Could it be because I'm wearing my Crazy Jack T-shirt?

Chito, Chevy, and Vinci arrived before I woke up. They rang the antique, Maranao bell in the small loggia. I did hear it, but it was incorporated in a dream.

Bought lunch for Aubrey, who left soon after for their senior prom at a hotel. Gave her money to make her feel confident and secure.

Chito, Chevy, Vinci, and I went to the center. Had lunch and brought Chito to the dentist. Ice cream snack, a banana split and a Toblerone and choco chips blizzard.

Now back home and waiting for Angelique to come home from university.

A new dragon fountain pen arrives. Now I have six (one of them is actually a Dionysos pen).

This one's a black dragon with beady, red rhinestone eyes!

For writing dark spells?

Good morning, Cubao!

Always give your children a regular allowance that is more than what they need, whether they have classes or not. It makes them stop dreaming about being able to save money in the future, when they have jobs, and teaches them to save up for what they want NOW.

"Good afternoon, Sir Tony. I came across a new sleep experience...today. I was having a bad dream when I knew that it was just a dream so I decided to snap out of it and wake up. I thought I did, at first, but later on realized my dream continued but it changed course. I will try to remember the entire dream as I write to you.

"March 08,2017 "I dreamed about mostly involving calendars. I was in a building when there was someone who saw a part of the eye bleeding. They were trying to cut and cleanse it but nothing happens. Nobody was in pain except that they knew, in the end, it was actually me. So they decided to sacrifice themselves in order to oust me. Luckily, the leader tbought differently. I was spared. In a building, I was robbing these calendars and carefully placing them in places where the owner can't find them. The owner has already had a hunch about me trying to steal them so I decided when I took each, piece by piece, I would place them in places that are obvious enough that they will not care to search them there. But, I was wrong. One girl saw right through me and found it in a blink of an eye before even the owner managed to set foot back in his office. I can't remember so well anythicng after that. "I was in a wedding. I dressed so well. It was a sunset wedding, I dreamed of something of no particular importance, after that. "During nap, I dreamed of something peculiar. I was at our helper's house when I asked for fruits before I left. I specifically asked for wintermelon. She gave me wintermelon and a bonus of one big papaya. Other visitors asked for it, too, after seeing her give me some. "I was somewhat in a veranda when I saw a girl being pinned down by two other persons and made to stretch her legs. I was watching but I was not sympatgetic. She wasn't harmed anyway. I was busy enjoying having fun, instead, with a certain guy (handsome but someome I do not know of) in the corner when my mom snapped and was furious. A video on the phone was emitting great negative energy, and it had been haunting us since. It turned out to be one specific girl. One has to have a chalk on his hand and jump from a reasonable height in order to restrain her from following you. I do not know the reason why we are keeping our distance from her. We just knew that it was the right thing to do. But, she just has too many followers. One was particularly jealous because I was with a guy who has the key to solving all these. The key is to find the black ring to eliminate them. The girl found me before that. We were in a ship in a middle of the sea when I attempted to go downstairs where it met the ocean. The guy was trying to follow me but was blocked by the jealous girl. Just a bit later, she threw the whole detachable staircase into the ocean where I was seated. I snapped out of the dream because I knew it was just a dream. I just had to wake up from it. The dream changed course. But I have not woken up from my sleep, though. I just managed to change it. Now my dream went back to when I was with my sister. We were canvassing for some fresh ingredients in the market. Then, I woke up. Strange.
My reply:

Hi ____________!

Your dream is in four parts, each part meaning one and the same thing.

As in your previous dreams, you are the other characters in the dream: the person with the bleeding eye (your difficulty to really see yourself and others), the girl who saw through your scheme (your conscience), the girl being pinned down (your desire for freedom), your mother (also your conscience), the girl in the video (the mistakes you made in the past that are always haunting you), and your sister (your wish to live a normal, peaceful, and happy life).

Did you by any chance watch the HBO replay of One Missed Call: Final before you had the dream? It has the same leitmotif, which is being summoned by fate and karma and deciding whether to pass on the negative energy to someone else or not.

You want to be too many persons simultaneously, and you want to cheat time before it catches up with you. This prevents you from perceiving yourself correctly, which results in your frequent inability to perceive and assess others.
I dreamt of a former supervisor. I think that he is now very ill.
