Dreams – they are funny things! I dream a lot and my dreams are usually very vivid and memorable. I wake up and it doesn’t take much to remember the dreams I had while I was asleep. The really detailed ones give me some good stories to write about and talk about! Just click on the “Dreams” category and browse through just a few of the ones I decided to share.
I give a lot of thought to my dreams and try to figure out what in the world triggered them — what was it that must have been on my mind when I fell asleep that translated in my subconscious into the details of the dream? I usually have no clue — the basis of most dreams remain a mystery and add to the bazaar nature of them.
But — I think I totally understand the one I had this morning just before I woke up! It makes perfect sense to me!
It was a quick dream without a lot of intricate details. The first part was that two of my fellow bloggers (Kelly
) came over to my house for tea. We sat around my kitchen table and Kelly and Melissa both talked and talked and talked. Every time I tried to join the conversation or start a new one, they just talked over me like I wasn’t there. I couldn’t get a word in edgewise! Then, I went to a class at what looked like a high school classroom. Just as I walked into the door, I tripped and dropped my camera. It hit the floor so hard that it shattered into a million little bitty pieces. I got down on my hands and knees trying to collect all the pieces – most of which were the size of grains of rice and there were several handfuls of little screws like the ones on the bow of eye glasses. I kept saying how I had to get all the pieces so I could put it back together because I didn’t want to buy a new one!
Why Kelly and Melissa? I have read both of their blogs for as long as I’ve had a blog and started following other local bloggers. We are all very active bloggers. Since I am on WordPress and they aren’t, they don’t show up on my Blog Surfer – I have to make a deliberate effort go to the links I put in my favorites to catch up with them. I usually click those links a few times a week and find a lot I need to catch up on. Lately, I have been checking every day and was just thinking the other day about how I don’t post as often as I used to, but both Kelly and Melissa seem to always have something new to read! SO — that is probably my interpretation that they “talk” more than I do – even though I try to “talk” a lot!
Why did they come for tea? I think that was prompted by my seeing “Alice in Wonderland” this past weekend. I enjoyed the tea party scenes and even mentioned in my review that my love of the story as a child is probably why I still adore tea parties! Tea parties were on my mind, so one ended up in my dream!
So, what’s the deal with my camera? For some reason lately, I have thought a lot about getting a new camera. Not sure why – my camera is fairly new, works great, and takes really nice pictures! But, I find myself looking at cameras in stores and thinking about what kind I might like to upgrade to. Every time I do, I tell myself that I don’t need a new one – the one I have is fine – it isn’t broke! Last evening, I was talking to Mom to finalize plans for a trip we’re going on in a few months and we talked about not forgetting our cameras. As we talked, I had a fleeting thought in the back of my head about getting a new one and, again, reminded myself that the one I have isn’t broken – I do not need to buy a new one!!! So — in my dream I broke it so I could get a new one, but my subconscious made me try to fix it so I wouldn’t have to!!
Why a high school classroom? Not sure about this one — unless it is because of all the stories in the Herald lately about dress codes, Saturday make up for snow days, and drop out rates!!?? Sounds good…..
So – a dream that made sense after I broke it down! That’s different! Sweet dreams…..
