Dream topics will often change seasonally--that is in winter we might dream about winter weather or holidays and in summer our dreams may reflect our activities of that season. As I grow older my dreams will take me back to my younger days though with the awareness that I am in my older mind. I may dream about being in school, having youthful romantic flings, or working in a place where I worked long ago. In fact many of my dreams now seem to reflect more on my youth than on my current age of life and yet I understand that I am mentally older than in the physical time depicted in the dream. In some ways my dream self seems ageless or unattached to any specific time of life while in reality my waking self continues to age.
Do you have a sense of your age in your dreams? Is there a particular time of life that you dream about more than others? What life era would you choose to be stuck in if you had full control of your dream topics?
