I did not sleep well tonight because of period cramping, and after finally falling deeply asleep in the early morning, I had the strangest dream. In it, myself and a number of complete strangers were shipwrecked near an island, or maybe it was part of a mainland beach, and I had to corral all of the swimmers toward the land, going so far as helping a girl who did not swim well lie on her back, relax and just let me tow her to safety. Then for some reason everyone was just sitting there and I had to push them into looking for dry clothes in the luggage some managed to get ashore with them. And strangely, the whole while I myself was not cold at all, either in the water, or on the land.

Very unusual because normally I don't interact with several others in my dreams, only one, maybe two persons at a time, and I certainly do not take responsibility for anyone but myself.

Я сегодня плохо спала из-за месячных, а когда наконец отключилась, видела очень странный сон. Во сне я и дюжина или больше незнакомцев потерпели кораблекрушение возле острова, или у берега материка, и мне пришлось направлять всех этих пловцов к берегу, а сначала ещё и помогать плохо плававшей девочке ложиться на спину и потихонечку добираться туда же. Выбравшись на берег, все, опять же почему-то кроме меня, сидели в прострации, и мне пришлось их заставлять копаться в багаже, который некоторым удалось притащить с собой, в поисках сухих вещей. А самой мне при этом во сне холодно не было, ни в воде, ни потом на берегу.

Странен же сон тем, что обычно я в них не общаюсь сразу с несколькими людьми, только с одним, максимум двумя, и уж точно не беру на себя ответственность ни за кого, кроме себя самой.

interesting dream! have family or work been slacking off and letting responsibilities fall to you by default? that'd be my first guess.

I like your interpretation, and it's possible my subconscious reacted this way to some work I have to do.

I have mentioned that we intend to publish some of the papers submitted to Zvenigorod conference with IOP Publishing. Well, I now have to translate their formatting guidelines for the authors, and I am not at all sanguine about them following those, even if we do a very clear Russian variant, because our authors generally don't bother with formatting their abstracts properly. :/

Hah. Thought more about it, and it fits: I am very used to formatting texts to the best of my ability, and the guidelines are a piece of cake for me, so yes, I wouldn't feel "cold" either learning them or using them (if I were to interpret the water and land from the dream that way). Yet others could feel more or less at sea in this situation.
