The Dreams....

My dreams are coming back to me, stronger, harder and stranger than what they have been in the last nine months...I think this is a turning point. I really do.

The funny thing, I dream, therefore I am.

I haven't dreamt like this since September. But, it's how I first started writing, and it always helps me see where I am in my life.

I think that the little things of this past year are starting to strip themselves away and I'm starting to get a sense of who I am, again. Which is always a good thing. When I dream I am always taken to a bizarre place of something not quite normal, but it makes sense to me. I never have a 'normal' dream. It is comforting.

As I said, the last four nights, these dreams all have something in common, nothing I've figured out yet, but they are linked. A little unknown (or known depending on how into Psychology you are...) fun fact, when we dream of a person, it is never really about that actual person, its about which part of US they represent about US.

Today I had a dream of dancing, but I was dancing alone in the basement of some "friend" whom in reality, I have never met. There was a party, but I didn't want to be around anyone so I went and danced to my own tune in the basement (which was pretty done up), then we were in a car chase with some ninja's and I lost an earring -- earrings that I would never wear, and some dancing monkeys (always I dream about monkeys...I should look that up...)anyway, I think my muse is coming back to me. Well, I know she is coming back.

Now, I just looked up some of the definitions on/about some of the more prominant things...oh, crap, I forgot about the ninja's -- hold on one moment please *pushes elevator music for "Tom Jones", to entertain* -- *And she enters grac...HA I couldn't finish that line, there is nothing about me that's graceful*

I suppose it's true,what they said about Ninja's but I am not sure about the other stuff, more to ponder or just let float around in my head for a few more days...

I still have to wait to see where she is going to take me on this wild ride of dreams, and if I get a hankering to write (when don't have it? the problem is finding the space in my head to write out what needs to be written), then I will write.

And again with the random, I was just really inspired by this last set of dreams I had, no story yet, but who knows...the way this road is taking me, I could be writing by the end of the week.

Pleasant Cheers!!

You will be writing by the end of the week. I'm sure of it. ;)

(Maybe they are monkey-ninjas--or even more spectacular: ninja-monkeys!)

Aww, thanks, Aaron! I'm not going to count my nunchucks or the fleas on the monkeys backs just yet, but I have a good feeling it's right around the corner.

Happy writing to you, sir!

WOW! How strange we both wrote about dreams. I stopped by your blog before I wrote my post, but I didn't even pay attention to the title, nor did I get a chance to read this post.

If you always dream about monkeys, I'd definitely look that up. Very...different.

Hope the writing bug bites you soon.

Wishing and dreaming,
Bea

Thanks, Bea! I saw that we both wrote about Dreams to, although yours was WAY more eloquent than mine. :)

Oh, and I DID look up the monkeys, the ninjas and the slamming doors -- surprisingly, they ALL sort of mean the same thing.

The writing will come, it always does. I haven't written in a few weeks, but I'm blaming it on work.

Your dream sounds really entertaining. I usually get stuck in mine. There's something I have to do, but can't. It's a common theme of my dreams.

Thanks, Tony -- I think so. And you're welcome to stop by my dream sometime, just make sure you bring your ninja stars to fight your way out of the dancing monkeys... :)
