Get a signed copy of my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving,” based on the true story of the personal life of a dream interpreter, travelling through the west coast before 9-11, now available in the San Diego local author section at Verbatim Books, 3793 30th St, San Diego, CA 92104.
Verbatim is a great, open minded space to get zines, modern fiction and classics, in a cool, artistic area of San Diego without that Barnes and Noble Big Box corporate mall feeling. They even have a poetry night once a month. So you can read your work there too!
However, if you’re looking for a bookstore with Wi-Fi, as the cashier, Nick, who’s a great guy, agreed with me, they want you to read books here, like you did in your old college bookstore. Not be on the internet. Maybe even heaven forbid, buy a few. Authors can sell there books on consignment too and get 60%. Just ask their cool staff members. Not many chairs here to sit down, but it’s a great literary hangout!
After talking to Cameron, the head cashier at Barnes & Noble, he agreed to carry a few copies of my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving,” the story of a dream interpreter, traveling throughout west coast before 9-11.
There might also be an open reading at this Barnes & Noble near the 15 freeway on Mira Mesa Blvd this Wednesday night and I’ll read a little from the book and maybe some new work. You can read your own work too! Check back to this blog for details, all thanks to Cameron and the new management at Barnes & Noble. “Naked Skydiving” is available in the fiction section under the S’s for Schaffner, my last name. If I see you in the store, I’ll autograph your copy! Next, I’ll be working to get the book in every Barnes & Noble
Dreamed That I Had Purple Hair and sang Jimi Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady,”walking around with an electric guitar. Will this be the Halloween costume of my dreams?
I was in this aquarium store looking at the fish and for some reason, there were also bunny rabbits there. A guy came up to me and said he wanted me to obtain the rights to the Kellogg’s rooster song. I told my Hispanic associate to negotiate his fee and the guy who wanted the Kellogg’s song thought it was too expensive. My Hispanic associate then went to another client and then the dream ended.
The only explanation for this dream that I can think of is that at UCLA, in real life for my graduate work, I was an assistant to an entertainment lawyer and thought of that as a possible profession for myself at the time, but it seemed to shut down my creativity. Every fictional person or idea I came up with had to be researched to prevent a potential lawsuit so it was inhibiting.
I also saw a lawyer on the Colbert Report last night, which I watch often since I’m a big fan of his show and the Daily Show. So that might have triggered this dream. Also, since I live on a river, a crazy screaming bird and a bullfrog have been keeping me awake at night, so that might be seen as the rooster song and my unconscious has probably woven all of these elements together, so this could be the unusual aquarium in the dream. I am also considering learning Spanish this year, hence the Hispanic assistant.
Dreamed About Working For Parks And Recreation
I was getting all prepared for it, since I had to study the river and other natural phenomenon in order to qualify for it. A man wished me good luck and I kept looking at the papers they mailed me and I was all dressed upfor the interview. I couldn’t find the time when the interview was supposed to be. I kept asking myself over and over again, when is the interview? I looked over the all the papers they sent me. I felt frustrated and kept asking myself when is the interview? My heart was racing and pounding, asking myself till I woke up. I remembered that I had watched the show “Parks and Recreation” on Hulu before going to bed and maybe this partly caused the dream. Plus, I have recently been interviewed by government agencies for a few videography positions, and at first, they don’t even tell you when the interview is. They wait to send you a second letter and then tell you when the interview is. It involved travel and I only had about 10 days to prepare. It was nerve racking and this dream reproduces and intensifies that anxiety. Almost felt like a heart attack.
was in last night’s dream. I owned it and it went on the land and the ocean so I drove down to Coronado to launch it and cut my finger. To me, this dream means that innovators like myself can get hurt, and need to protect themselves. What did you dream last night?
