For my day-job, I rent workspace, and one place I worked has recently closed down. Not particularly a problem, because I was hardly ever there anyway, and there are other places I can work from, but I did like the manager there. He was a gentle, unassuming middle-class hippie who I imagine trying to balance yurt-living with academia.
Last night I dreamt he was repurposing the space to hold soirees where people came to play music, exhibit art, smoke the pipe and almost certainly have orgies. I was just a little offended that he didn’t think my business would fit in with that.
But then dead bodies – naked ones, I think – started turning up in the city. They were dumped just beyond the edges of my parents’ cul-de-sac (which as you may know, is in an entirely different part of the country from where I live), and I think my mum and I discovered them together.
Whatever point my subconscious mind was trying to make recently with this dream, it obviously feels I haven’t got it yet. (Fair enough, I haven’t. There was so much going on in the moonlight dream that I could be mulling it over for months.)
What recurring themes have you noticed in your dreams? Do you have dreams that recur every so often, over many years (like the one where your exams are tomorrow, and your revision notes have turned into a shoe)? Or, as I’m having currently, a cluster of similar-feeling dreams happening over a few weeks or months? Let me know in the comments!
