Tarot Card

Writer's Block: Dream on

Do you usually remember your dreams at night? Do you analyze and/or record your dreams in your journal? Are there any recurring themes?

I usually do recall my dreams, even if they make little sense a lot of the time.  The ones that particularly stand out I make a point of recording.  Since about the 90's I've had a recurring dream about an invisible man. :D  As for other recurring dreams, I keep having dreams where for one reason or another I wind up back in school.  When I was still in school it was always a grade or form of school I'd already graduated.  EG:  When I was in Junior High, I'd dream of grade school, when I was in High School it would be Junior High or earlier, and when I was college it was High School.  Now that I've graduated, it's usually college I dream of, though recently I dreamed I was back in High School.  The odd thing is, in these dreams I am still the age I am in the waking present and I remember graduating whatever school it is that I'm being made to attend.  In the most recent one I was still 37 and back at my High School.  For once, I wasn't being told that they decided I had to make up credits they decided I was missing but I did have my usual worry that I get in these dreams of how I was supposed to attend classes and go to work at the same time.  Also, I was not interested in doing a bunch of homework or other assignments and I told the administrative staff as much right before I woke up.  I have no idea what any of that means.
