Dreams

Dreams are very strange things. Most nights I do not remember anything. Sometimes I will have a vague recollection that fades over the first couple of morning hours. Lately, though, I have been having very vivid dreams two to three times a week that feel like memories. In some, I vividly remember sensations like flying or running or screaming. Almost like my body is remembering it. In others, the dream is a full on memory lodged in my head.

There are days that I think I would willing go into the Matrix if it meant I could control the dream and the reality. Like having sex with Jensen Ackles or Chris Evans on the monthly. Being able to travel the world and experience new things without my anxiety tripping me up. Having normal mental energy and extra spoons (see the spoon theory).

Outside of the Matrix scenario, I do feel like sleeping more. It’s harder to make myself get out of bed in the morning. I have started sleeping past 10am again. I have slept through my alarm a couple of times. I don’t know if it’s my depression creeping up on my rearview or if my mind just likes the dream world better. Because let me tell you, some of those vivid dreams that are locked in like memories are spicier than Chris Evans doing a screen record live on Instagram.

And with that, let’s get some music going.

“Sweet dreams are made of these…”

One thought on “Dreams

  1. Nearly all of my dreams were full of anxiety. Generally I was working with a group on some project and we didn’t have the resources we needed or enuf time to get it done. Or we were trying to go somewhere or find something but didn’t know how. I attributed that to working for a corporation, and when I retired, my dreams changed. Not only were they no full of anxiety, but I was dreaming about people I know, which never happened before. But the anxiety dreams are creeping back, and I’m not sure why. Maybe the hustle of trying to promote my novel is too much like corporate life.

    I am glad you’re having good dreams!
