A bit of a weekend crowdsource.
My dreams tend to conform to the following features:
- Resemblance to daily life, to the extent that I sometimes have trouble telling whether an experience is waking or dreamed memory.
- Anxiety-producing. Or perhaps they’re an arena in which to work anxieties out. In any case, they’re distressing, usually in some minor way.
- I rarely remember them.
- People from my life may feature, but their personalities will be quite changed.
People I’ve met report quite different dreams. They’re in black and white, or fantastic, or lengthy, or easily remembered. I want to know about the kinds of dreams you have. I wish I had long and pretty and interesting and fun dreams!
