Dream Log: 3 July 2013 - PinChu and the Book of Luck
During dream time, I found myself in a small apartment with a small analog TV set on a TV cart playing - it was broadcasting a Chinese lantern festival. I remember a red paper lantern displayed on the TV, and some traditional Chinese music playing in the background. The room was small but comfortable, I recall white walls with dark wood trim (oak?), wood flooring, a brightly lit room. I was vaguely aware that my sons were with me, working on origami. There were objects displayed on the walls (collector's plates or photos perhaps?), and also what seemed to be Chinese New Years decorations.
PinChu was there sitting in a chair in front of the TV, working on a book made of rice paper. The book was the dimensions of the golden ratio, and about the size of a medium-sized notebook. Red silk cord held the book together (she was in the process of tying the cord). The book was made by folding large sheets of paper in half, and binding those together, similar to how one might make a construction paper greeting card.
On the cover was a single Chinese character, done in calligraphy in black ink. I don't know what the character was, since I am not familiar with the Chinese language. It resembled the Chinese character for "luck", but the character was upside-down, with the square/cross part of the character in the top left corner of the character.
She proudly held it up for me to see. In playful imitation, I took a tiny piece of scrap paper, cut it into a tiny square, and pulled a hair from a brush, dipped the hair into some ink, and drew a tiny character on the scrap of paper. I smiled and held it up to her. There you go, the world's smallest manifesto!
I met PinChu in a dream before actually knowing she was a "real person". It was roughly two years ago, and in the dream we were on vacation near a beach in Spain. We were visiting a castle, it was very sunny, and we had a really nice time exploring. We connected a few months ago over the internet, and have been good friends ever since. She is a "spiritual daughter".
