What Dreams May Come
The concept of dreams have been on my mind a lot recently. I know people say that dreams are made of people's deepest desires, fears, wants, needs, etc...But I have a theory. When you dream about people, could it be that you are possibly connecting with them on some level that is yet unknown to the human psyche? Could that person possibly be dreaming about you at that same moment? Is their nature of their dream similar to yours at the exact time of the dream? I have often wondered about that. Right, I would love to believe that while I dream about Alan Rickman, he too is dreaming about some illustrious, mysterious red-head and why he loves her so. (I'm not illustrious in any way, shape or form). What about the times you dream about someone you have never seen before? Just a couple weeks ago, I had a dream about some person who I have never seen, at least I don't remember seeing. I remembered his exact features, the length and color of his hair and the color of his eyes, his bone structure, everything. Could it mean that I will possibly meet this person at some point in my life, or that I already met them and didn't realize it? Our minds are such a mystery, it is truly amazing what we can accomplish. I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but sometimes my dreams affect the way I feel for that day, or that entire week. My dreams are very detailed and very realistic. All my senses are fully engaged. I dream in color and my dreams have a beginning, rising action, climax, falling action, and conclusion, just like a story. I can't being to tell you how many dreams I have written down. I even produced a 12 minute play in my dream once. Dream are indeed confusing, but I believe they take us to our own sanctuary.
