Last night I had a dream that I had three dogs.
In real life I only have one but in the dream, all three of them looked like they’d been with me a while. One had a favorite chair. One would escape whenever I opened the door but always came home when I called. One was very good at hiding.
One of them kept bringing pieces of paper and putting them on the floor in front of me. One would run away as soon as I got close and didn’t really want to be touched. One just waited patiently for me to pay attention to it whenever I walked by. In my dream I went to work, to a friend’s house, and back home, and the dogs were always with me. When I went shopping, they were there. In the car, they were there. Always surrounded by dogs and never once was it a problem.
The connection to the three books I’m working on is obvious. Everywhere I go, I take the books with me. They are a part of my life. They are not a hindrance to living or working and having them near me makes me happy.
I do wonder though, which one kept bringing me paper. And was it paper for me to read or a prod to get me to write?
Probably so. 🙂
I love your dream. To be in the company of dogs is wonderful, and often magical if they’re not ripping apart your favorite accessory.
The one bringing you paper: inviting you to write?
I do think it is a prod to write but I like that I felt surrounded by loving friends, too.
Man, why is it in dreams you can never see what’s written ON the paper?!
I love that your books are so deep into you that they’re showing up in your dreams. And what a symbol. Dogs–faithfulness and loyalty. (Okay, and a lot of drool.) They’re always going to be there for you.
It might freak me out to be able to read the paper. LOL.
Yes, the books are DEEP into me. I need them to be less deep so they can come out of me.
I love that dream. And its meaning.
Can I have your dream life?
It sure looks a lot less stressful than real life, doesn’t it?
