Obama in a Parade
Often when I dream of people it's almost as though I am seeing a sort of shadow or projected image of them rather than a distinct in-person presence. At times it may be as though I see them in the periphery of my vision. At other times it seems I have an awareness of the essence of being or the soul of a dream character without actually seeing them. In my dreams I seem to know most of the characters whether or not I see them clearly or directly.
A recent dream I had exhibited an anomaly to the way I typically see dream characters. In this dream I am standing on a sidewalk watching a parade pass by. A strange vehicle comes into view. It's not a float, but more like an industrial type vehicle which has a large high powered fan device mounted on the back. The force of the fan-driven air is so strong that a person is suspended in that stream.
I look closely and realize that the floating person is President Obama. He is wearing a finely tailored expensive looking suit and high quality shoes. His body is tossed about in the air stream, tumbling as though in slow motion. I can see his face very clearly and he is very real to me. His eyes dart about as though looking for someone to extract him from his predicament. He doesn't look overly afraid, but he appears to be very confused with a sense of helplessness.
As for me, I am amused by his predicament and awaken in a humorous frame of mind, perplexed by what the dream might signify.
How do you see people in your dreams? Have you ever dreamed about a president or world leader? What do you think my dream meant?
