I'm sorry if this is overly vague ...
I never thought to post this question until just now.
I'd never heard of otherkin, real elves when this happened to me.
I had dreams, vivid, memory-like of a place that I knew was not of this world - as if I were being allowed to go back to visit a place I once lived.
The buildings lined both sides of a rather wide, flat street, not made of cement, not paved, but not rough dirt either. The buildings, all of the same lightish gray color, seemed massive, immense, HUGE - yet were no more than 3-4 stories each. I remember thinking that these were buildings of another race, from "elsewhere". In the dream I was alone, but I knew the type of people who lived here. Thin, humanesque, quite busy, but decidedly not human. I knew I no longer belonged here. Each of these buildings were obviously built for a great number of people - numerous large windows, each made out of material that I'm quite sure was one-way glass so the people inside could see outside, but the people outside could not see inside.
I remember thinking this was a place of learning, and it felt quite familiar.
This place was so powerful that I - who can't draw for the life of me - kept trying to recapture the image on paper (at which I truly failed LOL).
Just wondering if this type of place, although I know my description is quite vague, sounds like anything anyone has encountered in a past elven life?
Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe
