To sleep, perchance to dream...
Sleep fascinates us all because it may be somewhat reminiscent of death: We lie down, we close our eyes and we are dead to the world. Except for someone I knew from UK who sleeps only 2 hours a day! Yes, Tracey, thats you!!!
But what's more interesting with sleep are our dreams. Whether we'd like to admit it or not, whether we are able to remember them or not, we all dream.
Dreams are so compelling, and they often seem so weird and strange that it is fruitless and confusing to attempt any interpretations of our dreams. We all have dreams filled with an infinite number of people, places, and things — and situations where they all get mixed together.
I just got an email fronm Sid, where he told me about his dream. It's incredibly funny and so out of this world - literally. I find it worth sharing with you and he did tell me I can. However, he made my task a lot easier coz now you can visit his page and read it from there. You can go check his site Useless Information. Here is a backgrounder though - Sid had been sleep deprived for several days because of a nagging pain in his wrist. He cannot sleep coz its the only sensation he can feel each time he closes his eyes. Finally, when he did fall asleep, out of exhaustion, his mind brought him to a place where no man had gone before. Hahahah!
Indeed, there is no science that could explain why our mind come up with such dream sequence. Therefore, it is also but right that we don't dwell on trying to interpret them. Maybe just by continuing to build relationships by sharing our feelings, our fears, our concerns and yes dreams, we will have a security blanket that we need to sleep easier.
Of course, if you enjoy your dreams and they don't bother you, dream away, and have fun!
Do you have any weird dreams to share?
