Waiting 4 The Man 2 Float By In the Water

Despite the title, This dream actually has nothing to do with Brian Williams. I dreamt it (and drew it) weeks ago. But I just finished coloring it today, and the scene reminded me of his quote about seeing a dead man float past his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina.

I miss Walter Cronkite.

Those long cigarette-looking things she’s holding were sort of “floaties” that I was desperately trying to get to my mom. At the time I dreamt this I was visiting her for the holidays.
She still smokes even though she has to take oxygen treatments at home, and I don’t know HOW many times she’s gone to the hospital for bronchitis, pneumonia, and COPD. In the dream, the long, white tubes were (I’m 90% certain) inspired by her cigarettes and all of the long plastic tubes that stick out of her oxygen tank.
The few times I’ve had the balls to talk to her about her smoking, she’s actually said (with a straight face) that her lung problems were more likely being caused by small grains of sand.

She lives near the beach. And farrrrrr away from reality.
