Because of a lack of phantasy to write somthing about the letter D, I finally thought I could write about dreams, especially because Mr. G. dreams in a very agitated way. He knocks the bedside table over, pulls the curtains down, falls out of his bed and each time he only remembers that he has saved somebody, or he has to hide, etc. Actually when he fall out of his bed he wanted to hold back an aunt who died 30 years ago but who was falling down the stairs. He also talks a lot and mostly fights or laughs with people he had not seen for at least 40 to 50 years !

So curious as I am, I googled a little on the net about dreams, to find out what all this dreaming meant. I used to dream a lot in the past but in the last years it's very very seldom.

I found a very interesting page and thanks to that I now know a lot now about dreams. For example you dream that you are sitting in the backseat of a car, this suggests that you are no longer in control of your life. You may be feeling overpowered, dominated and being told what to do. You need to start taking back control of your life. !

If you dream about a Bagpipe, and you see or hear bagpipes in your dream, it signifies strength and virility. You will overcome your struggles. (virility doesn't fit on me, that's probably because I never dreamed about bagpipes not even of under a skirt of scot).

But if you hear barking in your dream, it suggests that you are annoying those around you with grumpiness and fussiness. The dream may also be analogous to your tendency of barking orders at people, instead of asking or talking kindly. Alternatively, barking refers to unhappy and disgruntled companions. Maybe I have an unhappy companion ?

Fortunately I never dreamed about having an abscess because that suggests that there is something that you need to express and get out into the open. (I do that during the day)

Have you ever dreamed about eating Calamari ?? that indicates that you are feeling battered or beaten and if you dream that you are farting, it suggests that you are being passive aggressive. You need to express your feelings in a more direct manner ( I wonder what that would be ???)

And if ever you dream about having a facelift, it suggests that you are seeking a new self-identity and self-image. You may have experienced a surge in your confidence levels. Alternatively, it symbolizes vanity and you concerns about appearances rather than what is inside.

Now wish me that I won't dream this night about a dream.

Thankfully, I don't dream about any of the above! In fact I rarely remember my dreams at all! Maybe that means I'm in self denial or very secretive :D

I don't dream about any of the dreams you listed, but I do dream everynight. Sometimes funny dreams, sometimes nightmares and sometimes I wish I didn't dream at all.
I never tell what I dream about-too boring. My daydreams are much more fun. X

Interesting dream analysis.. I haven't really thought about getting any of my dreams analyzed but it will sure be fun..as mine always end up in the strangest places and has no continuity.

I think you can make anything up ti fit dreams. I know flying is supposed to mean you are happy. I don't dream as much as I used to or at least I can'r remember them. I sometimes dream that I have forgotten to pack and the plane/shop/ train is an bout to leave. I believe that is an anxiety dream.

I dream quite often & i can usually unpick them from the previous day's activities. When I can't i find it quite unsettling!

I hardly ever dream but when I do it usually does have a meaning.
When I was young I would dream a story. Then wake up put the dream on hold while I got a drink or went to the bathroom and then came back and said ok intermission is over. So where was I? I enjoyed those dreams.:)

Mara said...

I can't be bothered to look up what my dreams may mean. I am too scared probably...

claudie said...

I dream rarely! Because after the day at school I am totally KO!!!
Aujourd'hui on les a amené au stade pour des ateliers de Sécurité Routière! Quelle chaleur! Mélissa a terminé ses exams! On va attendre les résultats!

You are a funny lady... I can't believe there is an "interpretation" for dreaming about Calamari! That is hilarious! I love dreams and I love dreaming and I love spending time in dreamland.... mmmh

Lucky I was late getting around to visit! I used to have amazing dreams. I would go to a website that I don't remember now. It was fascinating.

My husband has crazy dreams, too. I am like you, I rarely dream. At least not that I can recall. I wonder what that means? =)

I love the cartoons!

Jenny said...

Is your husband a war survivor? I'm just curious on that.

Your husband sounds like my first husband...although his dreams were violent. I would wake up and he would be choking me or hitting me. He was a big guy at 6'3" and there were times I was actually afraid he might kill me.

Husband number two is a peaceful sleeper except for the rare dream when he's inventing something (like a payphone that uses raw eggs to fuel it - hmmmm). Apparently I only sing and talk in my sleep.

Your cartoons were great, too!

Thanks for a delightful post! This made me laugh! Sorry about your comments.
