TOO MUCH TO BEAR
Dreamed 1997/4/28 & drawn as a comic 1999 (pencil, digitally deepened and tinted) by Chris Wayan
Small window, slow connection? Too Much to Bear--illustrated text version.
NOTES 20 YEARS LATER
So don't tell me dreams can't add.
- Willie Brown is not, of course, still our mayor. The current mayor is even more pro-business.
- The San Francisco Hyatt-Regency Hotel's gigantic atrium really does looks pretty much like this--minus the icicles.
- Polar bears duel in a castle: fans of Philip Pullman's novel The Golden Compass will readily recognize the echoes, in my dream, of the shattering bear-duel in the ice-castle on Svalbard.
- The dream's math: is correct. A 72 mph impact meant a fall of about 175 feet--just right for a fall from one of the top balconies of the Hyatt-Regency atrium.
