What are your dreams? Not your waking ones, the ones after you fall asleep. Almost everyone in our family has been having weird dreams lately. We attribute this directly to the armed forces base being so close and the secret tests they must be performing. JUST KIDDING! Last night I dreamed we lived by the ocean. This isn't unusual. I've always lived near the ocean or water and now am in a land-locked state and severely miss it. However, the bubble-like pastel animals that took up almost all the ground space were most unusual! A teenager from one of my classes was in the dream and he started taking care of the needy critters and everyone was amazed that he had a soft side to him. I tried to take freshly baked chocolate chip cookies down to the beach for my kids who were there playing, but when I got out of the house I realized that I was carrying a bag of brown sugar instead of cookies. I walked out in time to overhear a sage old man (kinda like a buddhist type) praising me to my husband, telling him that he was SO impressed that I got through to that student and that it meant that I was one of "the rare people." There were only a few of us in the world. So I walked back into the house so they wouldn't see me holding the zip-lock bag of sugar and that I wasn't even smart enough to tell the difference between chocolate chip cookies and brown sugar. I had an odd dream a while back and it was the same beach, same house. My dreams tend to do that. When I was younger I dreamed every night for at least a year...the same type dream. In my dream I went through the day pretty much like in real life. I'd go to sleep and dream started that I was waking up, getting dressed, having breakfast, going to school, going through the day, and by the time I went to bed is when I would wake up. Dumbest, most mundane, boring dream life ever during that part of my life! And yes, I dream in color.
