Huh. Those vivid fever-dreams are kind of a crapshoot. Some of them are disturbing as hell; others are just awesome.

I guess I'm working a lot out in my dreams lately. Episodic dreams of exes. And babies. Something is afoot! My mind is so completist when it gets going. I could do without dreaming of that guy I crushed on at 14, then 16, then 18 - who would periodically reappear to drop bombs in my life. Never the right timing, (thank gawd!). And his nightmare of a sister. She was always so 3,2,1: bitch. I can't believe I can still conjure her character so accurately! I think my mind was telling me I dodged a (surfboard shaped) bullet. Yeah, he and his crew put me off surfers forever.
The other dreams have been a bit more traumatic. But then I wake up knowing there was no other way things could have played out. Love the peace of mind that envelops you after you fully emerge from the lil cocoon of visions. <3. I wish I could commune with others via my dreams sometimes.

Maybe we do commune with others in our dreams. I sometimes feel when I wake up that my dreams did not come from me. They are too rich and too random. I guess Jung would ascribe this to the operations of the subconscious / the Self? But, to me, it just feels like it comes from somewhere "not me". I like when I feel that presence because it gives me a lot of excitement and curiosity about reality.

And boy, am I sensitive to others' energy lately. I met a lovely ENFP in my travels yesterday. She was sweet. But she talked SO MUCH about so many intense/upsetting things that I could feel it really disturbing me. I suspect she was cooped up on her own all day and having some big life issues to work through. Could barely get a sentence in. Except to say: "I'm sorry, I have to go outside because I'm going to faint". (And then she wanted to talk about that! No!) She was v interesting to be sure. We had a lot of esoteric thoughts in common - I'm looking forward to getting to know her via email, where I can turn the firehose down if need be. :p

Ah, what would distance be, if we could meet in each others dreams.
