I used to dream every night.  For a brief time, I kept a journal on my bedside table where I’d write my dreams down for later analysis. If I didn’t write them down right away, my dreams had an ethereal quality and they’d float away from conscious memory.

I say I used to dream every night but maybe the answer is I still do.  I just don’t have the same re-call as my younger self.  One of the perks of growing older.  When I write perk, I meant it!!!!

The first alarm sounds at 4 AM thanks to B …means he has work.  The second alarm is not until 6:15.  In those 2 hours and 15 minutes, I had a dream so vivid that even at 10:30 something, what happened has stayed with me.  I won’t try and elaborate on the weirdness but I will say I might use this dream as a wake up call to make some quality of life changes.

As always, more to come.

  1. Ooh! Well I hope the changes you make are good and you can recall pleasant dreams instead 🙂 I definitely feel like our dreams are telling us things, even if it’s as simple as “Don’t eat strawberry ice cream before bed.” lol
    I dream crazy. Every night. Without fail. Vaguely weird usually, sometimes funny, sometimes nightmares, but I dream crazy as I ever have. Maybe one day I’ll be like you and they’ll only bother me with important stuff for a change!

  2. I had a dream that I wrote a poem.
    I was sleeping in my bed at my home.
    All the verses were clear in my head.
    The meaning of life was about to be said.
    Life and death would soon be told.
    The secrets of the universe could unfold.
    Passions were to be revealed.
    My lips would not be sealed.
    I tried to wake myself up, so I could write it down.
    I kept on struggling, I felt like I was about to drown.
    Then I lost all of my thoughts and my words were no longer clear.
    My mind was blank, the story was gone and it would not reappear.
    I woke up crying and worried about the poem that I had just lost.
    I felt awful, as I knew what not waking from my dream had cost.

  3. Apparently, we dream all night during REM sleep. We just don’t remember most of it. I can remember a little bit about some dreams, kind of the equivalent of the description of a show in the TV Guide. Not a whole lot of details, but I get the gist of them.
