I can't remember the first part very well...there was something about listening to the radio, something about feminism and maybe about a hostel. Anyways, the first part I can remember is I was in the woods, it felt nice but I had my phone with me and was a little disconnected from the nature. It was very early morning and the dew sat on the grass and the animals were just beginning to stir. I saw a hill that I thought I should get up and also noticed there were a bunch of slugs everywhere, I started to sprint on my hands and knees to avoid the slugs when I stopped and was in a squat. I wasn't going to avoid more slugs by going faster. I sat and observed the nature around me. I saw a very small hare and then two snakes! I was more shocked to see the snakes. As I was looking at them a huge snake came out of the brush and slithered right in front of me. It was like a pop can size all the way around. I had a moment of stopped breath but I felt very calm, an immediate knowledge that it wouldn't hurt me. (It came through my mind that we were in Nova Scotia and the snakes here were harmless). I watched it slide by and had another moment in the trees and then made my way up the hill. When I got to the top of the hill there was a kind of pit in the ground and there were 4 or 5 penguins in there! I went in the house and said to Katie, Sarah, Suzi and someone else "How did you get penguins?!" apparently they were from a package and Suzi brought them, you could grow them yourself. I felt, even in the dream, that my experience with wildlife was way more significant. I think we started watching a movie or something and they were all smoking cigarettes. Next scene. I'm working on an outdated bachelor apartment with someone?? It was strange. I was putting trim over windows and repainting some walls. The end!
