I had a weird one last night, as if on queue.
Started off in a strange but familiar town with houses out of red brick, so I assume it was somewhere in the north of the UK, only the streets were wide and tree-lined with cul de scac´s, if you went into one you were in a different time, one was Elisabethen, one was Edwardian and in one there was a shop from the 20ties with people dancing the Charleston, out in the wide street I met Karin, a chick I knew from school and we went into these cul de sac´s and explored until it was time to leave, actually I had to leave, so I took Karin by the hand and tried to lead her away but she shrugged me off and ran back to the shop from the 20ties, I followed and tried to get in but the door was closed and the bouncer told me I was not welcome inside, however I managed to convince the guy that I was looking for somebody and was allowed in, I saw Karin at the other side of the room dancing and very happy so I turned and left with the glass door closing behind me.

Try and explain that one dreamers.
Worries about finding or keeping a job. You're welcome.

What is really disturbing is my snoring so much so that I can hear my own snoring at night and then I often wake up.
I've done that during a physio massage session in my 30's.

I have recurring dreams that only stop when something similar happens in real life. I dreamt my dad died from head injuries from being 7yrs old until he died of a brain tumour when I was 18. Another long standing recurring one is set in the Villa San Michele in Capri. But I still remember an incredibly erotic dream I had over 20yrs ago, which involved Charlie Sheen in his Four Muskateers costume, and the hilt of his sword kept getting in the way. Wouldn't mind as much if I thought Charlie Sheen was even remotely attractive.

Well, looking at how it works with your dreams, guess you will have to decide what's worse: Dreaming about Charlie Sheen or get it over with

You should go soon to a sleep clinic, you have the characteristic symptoms that point to a stroke (rupture or obstruction of a blood vessel supplying the brain and is accompanied by permanent damage of brain tissue) in your future

TBH, there's no proven therapy for aging ...

The only question remains .. Grumpy-and-miserable one or opposite.

Re: The EF Dream Chronicle

Some years ago I kept a diary of dreams by writing them down as soon as i awoke, even if it was 3.a.m. Strangely, the dreams became more colourful and realistic every night.

After about 3 weeks all I could think about the whole day was going to bed at night and really looking forward to dreamtime. The last time I did this though I had a frightening experience, in which I felt as if something left my body and was looking down at me from the ceiling through a hazy mist. Sort of "out of body" experience. I became afraid and then felt a twitching in my throat and sort of convulsions in the body, as if something had entered my body via the throat. Became afraid to go back to sleep and have been very wary about writing down dreams ever since.

True, but there are therapies to minimise the health risks arising from excessive snoring

Dry red wine works miracles. It not only prevents against stroke but also enlarges the blood vessels. Having said that I'm already on the second bottle, Sunday therapy for snoring and dreaming related problems.

Re: The EF Dream Chronicle

I got a dream-book. It goes back to 1978.
Only very clearly memorized or impressive dreams make it in there. (Funny how the handwriting changed .... but that would be for an other thread )

As a teen-ager I used to be very much into C.G. Jungs dream-analysis. Now I just write them down, look for parallels with my actual life to see if I can get hints on how I "really think" if I allow myself to or simply enjoy them (I'm lucky, I never have nightmares).

As to Medea's link:
<<In each of us is another whom we do not know. He speaks to us in dreams and tells us how differently he sees us from the way we see ourselves...
~ C.G. Jung>>
I now just talk to my other daily, allow it to tell me the stuff I don't really want to admit, so much quicker and more effective to get the whole picture

So... in fact I am a mathematical puzzle.

Mind you, it could be worse... at least I don't dream of Charlie Sheen -with or without musketeer clothing.

As the subconscious "talks" in pictures .... is the puzzle in bits scattered all over the place? That should give you a hint

I'd like to know why I sometimes dream that I am a hypotenuse or a Sudoku, or a binary puzzle.
"hypotenuse "? You are just trying to prove you are not square

Me2, second bottle - but I am not entirely convinced this is the entire solution

Re: The EF Dream Chronicle

I really want to dream right now, at least daydream, but have to study. I wonder what the dreams will be tonight, I ate late.. always affects the quality of sleep.

What animals do people keep meeting in their dreams? I dreamed quite a bit about dog pets at one point, that I never actually had. St. Bernard, bordercollies, and that tall gray Irish woolfhound.

Re: The EF Dream Chronicle

My father had a dream book for gambling purposes. I'd say it's bunk but in 1987 he and a group of 27 others won our state lottery and split the roughly $30 USD million jackpot with numbers he dreamt. Unfortunately he and my mother pissed away the annuity money by the time of his death.

I often dream about my still loved and missed cats. The feeling of loss when I wake up is overwhelming.

Re: The EF Dream Chronicle

The only reoccuring dream I get these days is the one where I'm out and about and gradually realise I need to find a loo somewhere. My brain telling me "Wake up, you sleepyhead and go and find a real one!"
