Great Dreams. I mean REALLY.

Sometimes I don’t remember my dreams, but I remember some from last night, and they were GREAT!

First, I dreamed a brutal bad guy had me cornered on the top floor of an empty warehouse. No, that’s not the good part. The good part is, I opened a window and flew away. I used to have flying dreams a lot, then I didn’t for a long time, and now I do occasionally. They’re so great! I don’t have wings; I just haul off and fly. It’s so much fun! I’m like Wheeeeeeeee! Sucks to be you, bad guy!

So I Googled “dream interpretation” +flying, and found a site called Dream Moods that tells me the kind of flying I do signifies feeling on top of a situation, equal to anything.

Then I dreamed I was buying stuff, including a lot of sewing notions (I don’t sew) from a flea market but the total was racking up and I had already used some of the stuff. Fortunately–possibly from a combination of flying, fleas and theft–I realized I was The Handsome Monkey King, The Great Sage Equal to Heaven and that I was going to “die” and be reborn as a seamstress. Dream Moods couldn’t interpret that. I checked.

WRITING PROMPT: Pick an object or activity at random, go to a dream interpretation book or site, and see what the interpretation is. Then give a character a dream that ties that interpretation/object/activity to his/her life.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    That video was too funny Marian. I recently had a dream that people were being swept away by mini personal tornadoes. Not everyone, you were told if you were going to go. Most people went crazy, but I was looking forward to it. What on earth does that say? I think it is because I would like to go to my invented world. LOL
