Last night, I had a baffling dream. I had to leave for a business trip in Paris and I was not the slightest bit prepared. Just as I was about to start packing, I had a tummyache and spent an hour in the toilet. The plane was about to take off and I was still at home, looking for my passport and wondering what I should pack. I was frantic.
Fast forward... I was at the airport but I wasn't allowed to board without my boarding pass. I was upset. Why wasn't I given one at the check-in counter? Then I woke up with a start.
I often wonder why our dreams leave us bewildered and panic striken. For years, I dreamt of exams and how I would sit there sweating because I was so ill-prepared. Sometimes I even forgot my schoolbag or school attire. It could even be something outrageous like going to school without clothes.
Many people, including Sigmund Freud, have studied about dreams and given lengthly explanations and interpretations.
I, for one, never bother to analyse my dreams. I think dreams are simply a manisfestation of what we have seen, experienced or thought of during our daily lives.
Dreams can be meaningful or meaningless. Some people have recurring dreams. Others enjoy dreaming so much their dreams can continue night after night like a story.
If I were to read my dream correctly, it's time I go on a vacation. Plus, I shouldn't eat too much or I'll end up with a tummyache.
What are you dreaming about my friends?
