Inspired by JamesR's dream thread, I'm curious about what kind of recurring dreams you have. And do you think they highlight things your mind is processing? I regularly dream of going into my basement to find dozens of fish tanks I've neglected for months. Instead of dying from starvation, I am always surprised to find the fish have not only flourished but diversified into all manner of new critters. I think the fish are my creative projects that frequently get shelved, and then come back to the fore in my mind. I regularly dream of driving - often from the back seat. I can steer but I am always worried about how I'm going to stop since I'd have to climb into the front seat to reach the brake pedal. Alternately, I'm trying to stop the car from sliding into a ditch/river, and the brake pedal won't depress far enough to actually bring the car to a complete stop. I think this is a metaphor for not feeling in control of the direction my life is going. I often dream of furball kittens tousling underfoot while I'm trying to walks up stairs. I think the kittens are my children - always interfering but ultimately a good thing in my life. I also dream of having to navigate crazy subway platforms, where the platform gaps are huge, or you have to get down on the tracks to climb into the doors, or cross to the other side of the platform. I think this is a throwback to a very young age (4 or so) when my mother used to take me on the subway. What are yours? Can you describe them and their possible significance? Can you do it in a single paragraph?
