According to my travel schedule I should have gotten home by Wednesday January 8th. Instead, an unforeseen event--the illness of my wife's favorite aunt--has brought us to Orlando, Florida. And to complicate things I've become rather ill with flu or some such ailment. I've been spending a good bit of time in bed in our motel room. With sleep comes dreams.
I had a rather odd dream Wednesday afternoon. More than odd--since all dreams tend to be odd--the dream was disturbing. I clearly see the influence of my state of traveling and illness in this dream:
I am driving behind a truck or a vehicle pulling a large trailer. There is a large opening on the driver side of the "trailer". I see boys probably about 10 to 16 years old waving and hanging out of the opening. They seem to be festive with an attitude of showing off.I then awoke from this dream and pondered its meaning. I'm sure my upcoming trip home has affected my dream. My state of illness probably has something to do with the disturbing nature of the dream.
After a while they individually begin to do daredevil stunts where they hang horizontally out of the opening. Their bodies are very close to the roadway and they push this closeness even more with each successive stunt. Suddenly one of them drags his body on the roadway. He loses grip and falls off, tumbling to the side of the road. The vehicle ahead of me continues onward at a rapid speed as do I.
More boys try the stunt and are thrown from the vehicle. I run over a couple of the boys as do cars behind me. I am very concerned about this, but also somewhat angry and afraid.
I am now anxious to return home.
Does sickness tend to make your dreams more disturbing? Are you well in this post-holiday season?
