Why do you spend any time with trolls?  There is so much else to do besides entertain those people...
They can be very hard to avoid.  They've been known to chase people across the bridge.

It was post- the kind of apocalypse in which only humans had died, except two of my friends. We had been trying to figure out how to secure together a series of disconnected and open-ended but structurally still fairly intact corridors strewn randomly about the ground, the only housing available, from the weather to create a livable space. We finally figured out how to seal everything up and almost exactly when we realized how to solve the problem, I randomly looked to one side down one of the corridors and saw the enormous head of a grizzly bear move up into its frame.

We can only opt out so much, because we are part of the world.
That's a great dream. Yes, we are born into this time and space. What we do, and how we do it, depends on many factors. We are given varying degrees of control/input, and there are competing forces at work that aid or thwart our efforts: weather, political conditions, inheritance of numerous traits, wealth or lack thereof. Physical strength and physical challenges. The central image of your dream is the eternal drive of human beings to make something of themselves, whether it be a grass hut or a skyscraper, doesn't matter as long as we keep on trying.

... and then the bear came. Funny how dreams seem to end in such a manner. Hopefully Ding avoids the bear in real life. Much easier to avoid trolls like Rob.

On doing a bit of research I found that "no thy-lane" means not alone.

Having bears in your dreams is a sign that you are wrestling with something. Having a bear looking in your window, maybe telling you something as well.

The giant grizzly bear is an umbrella animal (top of the food chain) and a sign of ecological health anywhere the bear can thrive.  That is why some groups interested in having ecological health on the planet worked toward protections for bears.  By providing habitat for bears, habitat was also provided for many other species. 

My quest animal is the bear. The one who comes to you when you are thirteen. So to me, having a dream with bears in it is very special.  Haven't had one for a long time.      ~crofter

Is the valuable service more boondocking spots for crofter?
