Perchance to Dream

I often wonder what my dreams mean–not that I usually remember them at all.  When I do, I figure it must mean something.  I’ve often puzzled over a dream I used to have about Sadie, my late and very beloved beagle–she was driving away in a beige Ford Fairlane, braking for a stop sign, while I pursued on foot, yelling for her to come back.  Instead, she signalled a left turn and pulled on out into light traffic.  :)  She was quite a good driver, for a dog.  I was afraid, for a while, that the dream was a premonition of her imminent departure, but in actuality, she lived for a long time afterward.

Then there was the one about the three level mansion.  It was HUGE, and the first two floors were lovely.  The third, however, was always off-limits, somehow dangerous.  Yet I knew it was beautifully furnished and wanted to use the space.  I had the dream several times before I took a friend’s advice and asked my guardian angel to accompany me there if the dream came again.  Sure enough, it did, and I climbed the stairs to the mysterious floor, where there was, among other things, a magnificent grand piano.  The space did feel a little creepy at first, but, after that, everything was okay.

Venturing a guess, I’d say that scary third floor symbolized an unconscious fear of going to a new level in some area of my life, but who knows?

Have a lovely weekend, my friends.  Smile at someone.  Relax with a good book. 

That’s what I intend to do.

    Not sure if dreams actually mean something, but I can usually trace where a thing in the dream came from. Like a stray dog I found, house I was looking at, or maybe a relative I had been thinking of. (I know, never end a sentence with a preposition

    Another interesting dream. I wonder if I don’t remember because I don’t usually sleep very deeply?? I sure know that my mind can keep me awake if somethings bothering me big time. I always told my husband I could solve the worlds problems before falling asleep. He would be out in 10 seconds, it never seemed fair.

    Hi Linda, I LOVE the way you write. I now have a vivid mental picture of your Sadie driving away in the Ford Truck, maybe with a big doggie smile cuz she’s driving. :) I get this same experience with all your books, especially the western books.

    Also, one quick question. In The Creed Legacy book, the character Carolyn Simmons was browsing I believe in friendly faces (?) and saw that Slade Barlow was a widower and available. Is he the same Slade Barlow from Big Sky Country? I trully hope not; but if so, will you be writing another book for Slade? (I guess it’s two questions) :)

    I love the dream of Sadie driving a truck away. I can see her doing it in my mind. I don’t remember many dreams but when I do they seem very real. Enjoy your weekend and happy crafting.
