It was hot and sunny! My daughter was a teetering toddler. She kept trying to get around my legs to get in the “wa wa mommy!” She had a one track mind, focused on getting into the neighborhood swimming pool with her daddy.
I handed her to daddy who was waiting for her in the pool. I needed to run home for her swim shoes because the concrete around the pool was hot.
Most of the dream I spent trying to find my house, I couldn’t find the right street and all the houses looked wrong. They were all the same color of turquoise with sheet metal roofs and windows boarded up with sheets of plywood.
I never found my house but the sun was going down and dusk was casting shadows across the lake near the pool. (pool-house seen above back left)
I walked through the pool-house gates to find my husband standing, without my daughter, talking to a few neighbors. My daughter was nowhere. I started screaming at my husband.
I looked in the pool and saw a huge Anaconda swimming beneath the surface and it’s stomach had a large lump in it. My daughter!
The snake had eaten my daughter!
I went to jump into the pool and the snake slithered out and into the lake before I could even break the surface. She was gone…
I woke up screaming!
