Last night, I dreamt Hubby took me to a fancy restaurant and I ordered what I thought was going to be prime rib. Instead, I was served exotic insects and slugs. All live. The insects flew off and stung everyone else in the restaurant, there was a lot of screaming, and the slugs slimed away unnoticed. This was bad enough, but it got worst. The bill was astronomical! Who carries that kind of money on them? Not me.

I once had a school classmate whose mother was a psychic and he liked to interpret dreams. Sadly, he passed away, so I shall never know the meaning of my dream unless you all wish to give interpretation a try.

Any one have any odd dreams lately? That you can post publicly on the BHO that is.

Mander, I've been a mental health patient for more than 40 years and the best advice I ever got I received about 15 years ago: "Dave," my shrink said one day, "dreams are nothing but a junk yard. Don't bother trying to understand them."

Oh, now, who doesn't love a junk yard? :-) Yeah, it's easy to get lost in one.

...I've never kept a tally, but I think the oddball ones are the norm??    ...or maybe the non-oddball ones make less of an impression and are more easily forgotten/ignored??    I sometimes "wonder" about them... but not for very long!

Not quite a "dream" but a very pleasant sensation all the same =

I get into bed, turn the light out. Pull the covers up past my chin to get cozy.
I have the sensation that I'm sleeping on a cot in a big tent. Some wilderness camp site.
Warm & dry & comfortable. Nice to go to sleep that way.

I had a bad dream many years ago. I don't know what it was, but Dave woke me up telling me I was twisting and turning and crying out. All I remember is I was trying to wake up and couldn't. Good thing he was around then.

Some say... a dream is your mind working out an incident that was not successfully resolved during your waking hours.

They say that, but I don't recall swallowing any bugs of late. :-)

Here's a recurring one (that I recounted in another thread a long time ago) I had years ago, once or twice a year for several years.

I was able to fly by making running motions with my legs. Run, fly - indoors or out. Just start those motions and I could get airborne. It was actually a kind of neat sensation.

Then one day I was cycling out on Middle Road not far from here. As I was riding past the hay farms I noticed that my pedalling motion was just like the running motion in those dreams. I also saw that, because I was sitting on the bicycle, my body was off the ground - in the air, so to speak. So ... I realized that the dream was a metaphor for all my cycling.

I've never had that dream since.

I used to get the flu every year, and most times they were accompanied by a recurring dream - that I was falling through space,, down, down, down, but never landing on anything. It was only mildly frightening. Someone once told me that if I ever crashed it would mean I died. Huh?

...can a person "resume" a dream after being awakened during the dream?   [...after subsequently falling asleep again, that is.]

FWIW, I can't.

I look forward to dreams...the stranger the better.
My favorites involve flying.

Owen, I think the simple answer is "NO." When we, as young children, awaken from a nightmare we usually fear returning to it but, I think, we rarely do. And since dreams don't follow like a standard plot line, how would you know, upon awakening in the morning, that you had successfully "returned" to it?

I can, and have, done just that.  But - the dream was while I was not in a deep sleep cycle and I was conscious that I was directing it.  I've read somewhere that there is a name for this phenomenon, but can't recall it now.

Of course, at my age, waking often during the night is not a problem.

I always liked the tune by Blue Highway sung by Shawn Lane about a boy who couldn't wait to go to bed & dream about some new place away from the farm he worked so tirelessly on every day . Don't remember the title but I have it somewhere .

 I think that's what I was asking about.  Kinda in a half-sleep-half-awake state, but awake enough [may or may not involve getting out of bed] to realize  I'd been dreaming [usually something quite pleasant] and then trying to go back to sleep so I can pick up the dream where it was interrupted.  I can go back to sleep okay, but [unfortunately  sad  ] am unable to resume the dream. 

At least that's the way I recall things once I'm fully awake for the day [or at least as "awake" as I'll get].   

... that's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!!!

I had a book on lucid dreaming years ago. Kept a dream journal for a while. I can't drive or ride a motorcycle in a dream.

I can fly or hover . You feel pretty good when you wake up!

I have this recurring dream where I'm lost in a strange city. I go Aha! this one again! now I just go with it & look around.

I read that you can not dream about someone you have never seen. Every person in your dreams looks like someone you have seen before.

I've heard you can't look at your own palm in a dream. It's too much "Self" or something.

I can't read in a dream.

Phooey, Paul!!   I live far enough away from  you to qualify as an "expert."  Your dream was an clear message from "somebody up there" that you'd missed your calling.... you should have been an aeronautical engineer instead of a teacher.  cheeky

Edit: FWIW, I have my doubts about only seeing likenesses of people we've met before.... but I've never tried to keep track of it.  ... just my in-expert opinion....

I like the one about finding a very old building deep in the woods and going inside to explore.

This guy doesn't have to worry about crashing from takeoff or landing unless he's headed for a cliff .

Lucid dreams! The name came to me just as I was falling asleep last night, of course.

When I was young, pre-teen, a lot of my dreams let me fly by swimming through the air. Used to out-distance all sorts of animals and bullies wanting to beat me up. Of course, the swimming part probably came from the fact that I was mostly aquatic mammal from my infancy through High School, spending most of my summer in the swimming pool provided to the camp by the oil company (KNDA) my dad worked for. Even life-guarded the first summer out of HS. Those were before my lucid dreaming nights, though.

My dreams are inhabited by people I know well, slightly and not at all.  The ones I know well are actual representations of themselves, looks, voice, and usually mien, although not always mien.  Also places and times, although those are subject to wild variation.
