The past month or so, the last dreams before waking have been more like personal life current affairs rather than the usual symbolic or metaphoric or whatever they are called. I never used to have real life type dreams before this year and the last. The interesting thing that I noticed is that the personal life dreams have all reflected my inadequacies in life at this time. This morning however, was not like that. It seemed to be real life, real time, but with a different character added, and not "here" where I live. The strange thing though? I laughed in the dream. I have never laughed in a dream before.
"I love the smell of chicken in the morning,"
I said that in the dream. It cracked me up. (Movie reference.) We were laughing and then I said something else and we cracked up more. I woke up.
I didn't wake up laughing or smiling or feeling uplifted, but considering where my head was last night, that's pretty damn fine.
