FUN MONDAY - Dreams



Jil at The Adventures of Lil Mouse proposed to write about "Strange Dreams. Do you have any dreams, particularly recurrent ones that you feel no one else has?"

I used to have a period in my life where I had the most strangest dreams and nightmares, where I mixed up people I met when I was a child with people I actually knew. Especially during holidays I had the wildest and sometimes real funny dreams and always in color ( I couldn't dream without colors !) In the morning my family asked me what I had dreamed and laughed their heads off.

Now since a few years it is rather rare that I dream. I go to bed, read for a while and then sleep like a baby. But a few days ago I had a dream (of course not like a certain famous person)

I dreamed my cleaning lady, dear Janka, was on holidays and I had to vacuum the house. When I lifted up a carpet I found beetles, bugs, spiders, and other very ugly and horrible insects underneath. I screamed, dropped the vacuum cleaner and ran away. Now have you ever tried to run away in a dream ? You ran and ran and don't move a bit. You make terrible efforts to go further but you just stay on the same spot. It is just a terrible feeling, especially when you are persecuted !

Of course the next morning I had to laugh about this silly dream and all these disgusting critters had disappeared. The only critter was Rosie sitting on my stomac and looking at me with her huge eyes.

But maybe amongst you is a dream analyzer who can tell me what a terrible problem I have in my life ?

I dont dream much any more or it may be that I don't remember them. But I can remember trying to run and get nowhere in dreams when I was younger.

Pamela said...

I think dreams are just brain sifters... getting rid of excess thoughts and making room for more.

Good thing you're getting rid of spiders and bugs.. ha ha!!

Lifecruiser said...

What a night mare! Vacuuum'ing! And beetles! Ha ha!

Do you have some unfinished business to do maybe?

I'm not remembering any dreams any more either. They say that we do dream, we just don't remember it when we wake up.

I can't remember if I wished you a Happy Easter either. *giggles*

A calm Easter over here, first a dinner with Jane over here. Then yesterday a family gathering at my brothers place. Though such things tend to make me exhausted nowadays, even though I have a very nice family....

Shionge said...

We have sweet dreams and bad dreams and yes it does makes us laugh when we get out of bed ;D

Happy Easter to you :D

Lovely pictures and dream stories,
Gattina!

For many years, I dreamed every night, my mother came to my bedroom and smiled at me. When I woke up, she was'nt there. How could she?
My Mom died during the war.

I completely forGOT about Fun Monday this week. Where's my mind these days?!!!

I do hope you had a great Easter celebration and Mr. Gattina's birthday was a happy one.

I am not sure if the dream means anything, but I like Pamela's explanation. I am not sure, which is more frightening, the bugs or the inability to run away from the critters.

jill said...

maybe it is unfinished business. like a pp said. you cant go anywhere because you arent done with 'business' -if you finished the vacuuming maybe you could walk away? hmmm...thanks for playing!

Junebug said...

Ooh, I've had that scary bug infestation dream before! They will be everywhere I look.

Melli said...

Obviously you are suffering a terrible case of being overly domestic and you are probably in need of an exterminator! Best for you to take a vacation and let Mr. Gattino rid the house of bugs! And of course, give the maid a raise!!!

Sayre said...

I think you were missing Janka - and envisioning what could happen if she didn't come back!

Vlado&Toni said...

could it be you have some secrets in the past you tried to hide and now you are afraid they might come and hunt you ? *wink*

Puss-in-Boots said...

Hmmm, let me see...the insects represent all the naughty things you've done in your life and running from them means you wish you hadn't done them...

Or maybe...you're going mad??? lol!

I have strange dreams, too, Gattina and like you, dream in vivid technicolour. And they can be quite weird as well. Maybe we're both going mad?

Dr.John said...

I am glad I don't have your dreams. I hate bugs.

♥~♥ Tracey ♥~♥ said...

Yuck! I would not like dreams about bugs! Maybe it was about uncovering something unpleasant that you have not been dealing with directly?!? Just call me Freud. ;0)

Ari_1965 said...

Ooh, beetles! I don't like bugs.

A Dreams-Teller said...

Something is bugging you...getting under your skin and you are doing your best to avoid facing it. In your dream you try to escape, but can't, because this dream is saying you should take a look. It's all hiding under the rug where you have swept it (the emotions).

ChrisB said...

You've had some good interpretations for the bug dream. I've certainly experienced the trying to run and it's so scary.
