I don't know how many of you take your dreams seriously. I know the difference between a visitation dream of a deceased loved one and a dream with them in it. I've always hoped I would have a visitation type dream from my dad, but he's just part of my dreams, he and my mother, however, my mother is still very much around. Then there are those "creative" dreams where you get some really great ideas and try to remember them when you wake up...many of those dreams are lost in my little gray cells somewhere in my brain, because I'm just too lazy to keep a journal or sketch pad by my bed...I prefer to just keep on sleeping and keep on dreaming. Then there are just those dreams where you wake up and think, "What the heck was that all about???" Ok, I get those a lot and I can't say what lead me to dream that stuff and why.
Lately, however, I've been dreaming about myself, but yet, it's not me. I'm either younger or older, but it's not my face, my body (which can work to my advantage) my hair, it just NOT ME. It's as if I escape into someone else's physical body, but the person within is me, my personality, my sensibilities (or lack of), in other words, it's me, but in disguise.
I've been dealing with some rather serious issues right now and I'm wondering if that isn't why these strangers appear in my dreams as me. Perhaps in my dreams, I'm escaping my physical reality by being someone else. I have no idea, I'm not a dream interpreter, but the dreamer. Last night or rather early this morning (that's when I have my most intense dreams, around 6-7:30am.)I dreamed I was this young woman who fell in love with this sweet young man, we became engaged and it turned out he was a vampire. Now I'm not into the New Moon series nor do I watch vampire shows on the CW, I'm not saying I'm not into vampires, I love vampires, just not the recent young, sexy type, unless many of you remember Frank Langella playing Dracula many years ago when he was a young, sexy stud...I was soooo in love!!! Even Robin Williams was in the dream playing a stalking vampire. Ok, by now you all are saying, "Wow, G, you've lost your cucumbers," but I'm telling you what I remember. Now here's where reality begins to seep in, we had 2 children, male and female. The male was very negative and judgmental, and so on and so forth. He wanted to quit school and learn how to play the trumpet. I told him I would allow it, but at the end of the year, he had to play Carnegie Hall!! Now is that too much for a vampire mother to ask of her little blood sucker??? Then there was the daughter who was always bringing up the past, I kept telling her that she needed to move on and quit living there, get her head out of the past, but she just kept on with, "I remember...", blah, blah, blah. She was a royal complainer and whiner. That's about all I remember of these vampire kids. I also enjoyed the part where my vampire honey and I would mess with the maid and open up the dishwasher and put the dishes away...telepathically!!!
Can you imagine remembering all these little details in a dream that probably lasted just a couple of minutes...it's mind boggling!! So what do you all think. Am I escaping through my dreams (and let's not forget the Housewives of NYC and Orange County) or is this just the norm for now. If it were, I guess I wouldn't be writing a blog about it, so dear readers, whatcha think??
Now onto another subject. My sister told me of a gift she found for me after she gave me my birthday gift. My sis is a procrastinator, but a really sweet one. I can recall Christmas' in July because she never got around to mailing them in Dec. Birthdays in...July come to think of it...she just clumped it all together in July!! She's gotten much better, however, since her life is very different from all those years ago, thank God!! She emailed last week telling me she had finally sent the little thing out and I would be getting it Monday. What a hu-eg surprise I got from the UPS guy, she sent me an Ed Hardy handbag!! Little??? Nope, wonderfully big!! She knows my love of skeletons, who doesn't???? LOL
I love it and I intend to wear it right away. Such a great surprise and gift. Well, my dear readers, time for me to get my morning started and move on down the road. I think I'll play in my studio today and see what things I can accomplish in there, cleaning and organizing are not in the plans right now, though!!! Peace out.
