I was part of a spaceship’s crew. The ship was huge. I took a tour of it with the captain. At one point we passed by a couple of volcanic vents contained in a raised area along the hallway. The captain gave me a stack of commendations & told me to process them. Going through them, I saw that most of them were for one person; the crew’s volcanism expert. We met up with him--he was a handsome, smart young man. The captain lead him to another area with me following along behind. We went past the volcanic vents again. I ended up alone with the volcanism expert in a small room. He expressed an interest in me & I reciprocated. The captain came back by & asked me to grab 3 pieces of clothes from the uniform room, based on colored strips (all of which were warm colors; yellow-orange, etc.) I went to get the clothes. The uniform room was large & open. A woman came through & went into the small room with the volcanist, closing the door behind her. After I got the clothing the captain requested I put my ear to the door. Inside I could hear the woman on the phone.
The volcanism is most likely from recent TV viewings.
Although it was interesting to be on a spaceship in this dream, I was still relegated to "girl friday/errand-runner," more or less. Mundania intrudes, even in outer space.
When I listened at the volcanist's door it wasn't because I was jealous--it was because I wondered how long they'd be, as I had to get in there to deal with the stack of commendations.
"Space Mermaids" (the sketch, above,) was done quite a few years ago. It was based on a poster I saw in one of my dreams. I may paint something based on this someday (which means getting out the airbrush, which is a pain in the @$$, frankly...)
Update; I finally did a study (sold,) and a detailed painting of this sketch.
In other, general news, a lot near our home was cleared today. There goes yet another 1/2 acre of forest. <:(
