I’ve been trying to remember to write down at least a short outline of any dreams I remember upon waking in the morning (or after a nap). What do you dream about? Do you think dreams have meaning? Do you remember your dreams?
Here are three dreams out of my notebook:
- I dreamed I’d flunked a class in the MFA program and wasn’t going to be able to graduate on time. This is a recurring dream. The flunked class was a Math class and there aren’t any Math classes in the MFA. Plus, I’ve never flunked a Math class in real life. Dreams are weird. Oh, and these dreams occurred after I’d already graduated from the MFA program.
- I dream regularly that an estranged family member and I have a kind, compassionate, non-angry talk about what’s been happening. The dream is so realistic that when I wake up, I feel as if it’s really happened. But then it’s so overwhelmingly sad when I realize it was just a dream, and at this point is far from coming true.
- I dreamed I lost my purse and all my personal ID on a trip to Room 130. What is Room 130, you ask? I have absolutely no idea.
