I heard somewhere recently that the only time you are truly free is when you dream. Sorry I can't remember exactly who said this. I think this statement is true. At what other time are our concious and subconcious free of the clutter of television, reading, every day activities, etc. Sure our worries, goals, wants, and needs follow us into sleep but dreams can take us anywhere.
Twice now my dreams have taken me to a place where my sister who had her tubes tied almost 5 years ago is pregnant with a baby girl. The most recent was last night. I called my sister to tell her about and she laughed. Her boyfriend thought it meant that I was pregnant. It was my turn to laugh at that one. However, it has me wondering what these dreams mean.
That my friends is the downfall of dreams - we don't know what they mean. The Internet is full of online dream dictionaries but what I would like is something like a Urim and Thummin for dreams. Wouldn't you?
