Fox Mulder (X-Files) once said,”A dream is an answer to a question we haven’t learned to ask.”
I say, “Dreams can be memories that are buried in the subconscious.”
It is widely believed that dreams are the mind’s way of sorting through our waking thoughts. They are another reality with which we can interact. Dreams provide a signpost and a different perspective on our lives. They transpire in sleep, when the subconcious is the most relaxed. They are offered to us free of charge, day or night. That is, until they turn into a nightmare, and then there might be a steep price to pay.
In many ancient societies, dreaming was considered a form of supernatual communication, a means to predict the future, or a warning of something about to happen. Some dreamers have been known to be able to manipulate their dreams.
Ever dream of another you? The Kid did, many times. His mentor was a rambunctious rascal and could do the weirdest things. Just who was this other charactor anyway? Was he really me, living a double life. Or did he exist in a parallel world?
Some of my dreams were very peculiar and made absolutely no sense whatsoever. Then, in a ‘blink of an eye’, one dream became a nightmare.
Did these dreams have anything to do with my story. You would think so.
