Thursday Thoughts: These Dreams.

I haven’t had a flying dream for quite a while.

I remember the first one (that I remember). I was walking along the gravel driveway of our house. I felt my feet leave the ground and I flew/floated over the tree-lined drive.

I had more, but I can mostly remember the feeling, not the setting or the circumstance. The sensation of floating and thinking “I’m not supposed to be able to do this” and being on the verge of falling, yet still having some control was…exhilarating? nerve-wracking?

Maybe I have been flying but just don’t recall.

I went through a phase of writing down my dreams as soon as I awoke. I don’t anymore, and I don’t know why. Sometimes, a dream will come back to me in a flash and I’ll remember the whole segment, other times, just one snippet.

I don’t read into the meaning of dreams as some do, but sometimes they are fun to remember. Some leave you with a good feeling, some are heart-pounding adventures, some are just bizarre, and a few are just scary*.

Hey. Kind of like life, don’t ya think?


*Ever watch your pet dream? It’s pretty funny went their legs twitch and they make little noises. You know they’re chasing something.

  1. Dreams can be so vivid, I don’t have them often but I do remember them completely. Your summation about them is on point.
    My little beagle dreams often and it is amusing to watch him. I’m addition to the twitching feet he makes these bird calling sounds like a turkey it is funny as hell.
