Restaurants in Surry Hills

I had an Australia dream last night:

Tim, Jack, and I are in Surry Hills.    

I'm amazed to be in Australia again. I feel I need to appreciate this and not take it for granted.

Jack plays some game that involves looking for restaurants. He's in an energetic, happy mood.

Tim is looking for restaurants for our dinner that night.  He assumes Jack is doing the same. Tim is in a very tense mood.  He acts annoyed with Jack.  

I try to explain to Tim that Jack is just looking for restaurants for fun.   

Then Tim runs and Jack tries to catch up to him.  I can't see details because I'm across the street (maybe?).  But it seems to me that Jack has started crying.  

I'm not sure if the dream has any meaning besides a general message on contrasting moods and misunderstandings. 


  1. I think once before I commented on one of your dream posts that you must have had indigestion.
    This one sounds like you went to bed hungry.

    But I'm still jealous that you can remember your dreams.

  2. Fruitcake,

    And I still feel bad that you're jealous. Or really....I feel bad that you don't remember your dreams as much.

  3. At least you dream about yourself being in a decent area and not Bankstown.

  4. Andrew,


    Have you been to Bankstown? Is it awful?

  5. Bankstown isn't awful. I was brought up there. It is very suburban. Back in the societies sixties it was very Anglo, with a fair few continental migrants. Since then it has become a melting pot with a large influx of Arabic ( Lebanese) and Asian arrivals. Almost every main street shop has changed to suit. There does seem to be race-oriented gang issues, but there still seems to be families just minding their business too.

  6. Martyvis,

    Cool. It sounds like it has a nice/interesting mix of people.
