"Diary of a Nobody" says something to the effect that there is nothing so boring as other people's dreams.

As I am planning the July piano party here (yes I like to plan things well in advance) I have been thinking, perhaps too much, about the pianos. Last night I dreamt that all of them had gone mysteriously, and acutely, out of tune.

A photographer friend of mine used to say that there was nothing as boring as a sunny day, and I came to believe that. Where is the drama in a sunny day? From a photographic point of view, there isn’t much.

As for dreams, I don’t know, but I suppose it is true that they’re boring because they’re not as fully developed as a novel.

One of my coworkers told me that she dreamt the whole company had been relocated to a moon colony. She said that we were threatened by the moon and had to keep trying to push it away. I said that none of us were getting off of this planet, so, not to worry.

Perhaps you are just worried about having the pianos serviced and tuned for the party and all other preparations that would need to be thought about.Do not worry it will work out fine.By the way I always find other people's dreams interesting.So no problem.

This reminds of Virginia Woolf's novel Mrs Daloway.

Well, Philip, there could be worse nightmares. For example, I was actually thinking about possibly attending your piano party in Bulgaria this summer. That would likely be a worse nightmare for the entire group than a slightly out-of-tune piano... smile

Rick, have you seen the thread on "Adult Beginners' " section? That has many details.

You could even read "Diary of a Nobody" whilst here.

If I knew at all how the pandemic would be in July, I would love to be there too Phillip.How would we know about being safe on a plane though? The safest way would be just have an N95 mask on all the time except for having something to drink quickly.(forget dinner) If the Omicron virus is around our vaccines would give us very little protection, so it is a difficult one.I am sure it will be a great piano party, perhaps younger people would be safer.

All arrangements are subject to pandemic, of course.

So let's transfer any discussion to here:

As a footnote, I have just woken up 4 hours late. All I remember is getting mixed up with a bunch of PWers on their way to the party and no room at the inn, or anywhere else. Nightmares, indeed.

There wouldn't be any room at the inn. Everywhere is always full at Christmas.
