I do have vivid dreams, some reoccurring dreams, I also have lucid dreams. When I lucid dream I tend to goof off and have fun. Some of my dreams are full of symbolism, some are full of anxiety, many full of a wacky stuff.

They're rather vivid, but this may well be due to the effects of one or two prescription meds I take. Vivid dream recall is associated with both.

Very vivid. I wonder sometimes if things I recall later on were in my dreams or if they actually happened.

I am and have for a long time been a vivid dreamer. I write them down and find interesting insights when reading them later. They include everything from predictions to warnings, flying to eating chocolate, visits with friends and departed loved ones.

I had a dream last night that I was being chased by the zombies from the walking dead. I live in the next town over from where they film the show, and was talking to a customer yesterday about how much they would pay me to be a zombie in the film and he said it depends on how far back in the distance you are as to how much you get.

When I remember them, it was because they were very vivid and real. Unfortunately, I don't remember my dreams as much as I would like to.

My dreams are usually vivid and often rather unsettling. Sometimes I get lucky and things just go great: flying in a hot air balloon on a perfect day, being able to leap and jump in slow motion, or finding an extra two million dollars. Instead, often I have frustration dreams. The train is always at the wrong platform, or I get in trouble for something that somebody else has done.

My dreams are vivid.

Most recurring one. I am in High School and I cannot find my math class. Or I cannot find my locker. If I do find my locker I cannot remember my combination. Or when I do find my math class I don't have my book or homework because its in my locker.

I also have the dream about dirty bathrooms. Would you believe I am in school?

I rarely remember my dreams, but wish I could remember more. In the ones I do remember, its like I have a whole other life. Once, I dreamed I was a heart surgeon. In my dream, I was operating on someone and knew exactly what I was doing even though the most real life medical training I have had is a few CPR classes. I also dreamed I was a fighter pilot, again knew exactly what I was doing in the dream, wouldn't have a clue in reality. I used to have a recurring dream that lasted from late elementary school through high school where the bus would crash over a bridge into an icy, flooded river. I always woke up just before we hit the water.

Why can't I gain 8" in height instead of lose 40lbs. in weight?

I'd say my dream are pretty vivid and in color too.

One reoccurring dream I've had before is being in school. I'm either lost and looking for a class I'm supposed to be taking. OR I'm taking a class and failing. OR I'm ready to take the final exam, but haven't studied and I know I'm going to fail. OR I have to drop a class because I'm failing.

Another dream I have, I can swim underwater ! That's a favorite ! LOL !!!

I have had some really vivid dreams of my dad, too, that have had me wake up crying. In reality, the day before he passed, when I was crying, and didn't really have a good reason, he asked me if I wanted a hug. OMG. If I could go back in time, I would have held on really tightly. Instead, I told him no, that I thought I'd be okay. The next morning, before we discovered his lifeless body, I was mad at him for something so stupid and assinine.
I feel, though, he doesn't hold it against me. That's usually what those dreams are about.

I keep having a dream that I'm on vacation with my daddy. In reality, he died 16 years ago while he and my mom and 3 brothers and my little girl were on vacation. I didn't go with them that year.

I have the same recurring dream at GLITTERFAIRY77 where you can't find a clean stall. Normally they are overflowing or the lines are REALLY long.

There has been another dream I kept having where there is a flood. I outrun it each time and survive. This started after I saw the movie 2012. My cousin told me that water generally signifies emotion.

The most satisfying dreams I have had is where in real life I have had to euthanize one of my animals. Two of them came to me and let me know I did the right thing, that they were no longer sick. My first dog, Pepper, and I ran and romped and played in a field and she was happy and smiling.

My dreams can be really vivid, and sometimes they can be absolutely ridiculous, as to indicate that it is indeed a dream.

My most vivid recurring dream is being in a public restroom, really having to potty, and there not being a single clean stall. No matter where I go, the stalls are disgusting. Usually an indication that it is time to get up and go potty.

I know that I dream in color.

If I fall asleep reading a book or watching TV, whatever I was reading or watching will often be incorporated into my dreams. Since I read a lot of Stephen King, it gets interesting sometimes.

I have very vivid and strange but interesting dreams. Last strange dream I totally remember was a few days ago. My oldest daughter was talking about herbs and teas and such and I guess that is what triggered this dream along with my love for wind socks, you know the mechanical kind that are in front of businesses, I love those things and often act silly in the car when I see one for fun and laughter and dance along with them. I also tell my husband I want one for my backyard because they make me happy and they are peaceful to watch, I love those dancing things! Anyhow I dreamt that I had bought some of the herbal tea she was talking about and had a cup, afterwards I was feeling strange like weightless and flowy. When I would walk I would feel like I was taking effortless long strides and my body that had no weight to it. and my arms would wave like a light fabric in the wind, I loved the feeling but I was thinking this is strange. In my dream, I had company over my SIL'S parents, SIL and my Daughter we were all visiting and watching tv. I thought my husband started goofing off feeling effects from his tea as well. Once in a while in my real life when life permits it I enjoy going to our local casino. I was supposedly there earlier in the day in my dream so some of my company asked if I won anything. I answered no, but my husband started being goofy saying no she did not win but boy did she have fun, she was jumping from machine to machine, and he took a stance of a monkey in a squat like stance, hands under his pits and started acting as if he were jumping making monkey noises it was funny but then he wouldn't stop so I started walking down the hall into another room feeling a little annoyed, by the time I reach the living room I realized he was on the couch relaxing and almost asleep so all the stuff I thought he was doing never happened, I guess I was hallucinating off of the tea in my dream. Lol. I had many strange dreams that night but I only can remember this one vividly because I woke up hubby to tell him about it during the night. I love dreams, I usually can see why I had them and how my subconscious mind put together for a movie to watch in my dream. I have yodeled in my sleep as a kid after my mom watched Ella Fitzgerald on tv yodeling lol. I talked of a different language, language unknown to hubby that was fully awaken by me asking him to listen to a letter sent to me by a doctor before I had surgery. I really was having surgery in two days and was a bit stressed, he said I asked him do you know what this means in English but started reading the letter in an unknown language, then asked him do you know what that means, when he said no, I said no, what do you mean no? The language could have been not real that is something he and I will never know, he said it sounded very real and fluent as if I knew exactly what I was reading just in some language he did not know. He always talks about that dream with amazement.

Occasionally I'll have a dream that is so vivid I later have to think to determine it wasn't real. For years I kept doubting myself over a class in grad school that I stopped attending but didn't drop. Total dream.

As long as I can remember my dreams have mostly been pretty vivid and recallable immediately after waking up.

I also have several recurring dreams some go back several decades and the one that keeps coming back is an old abandond house during a stormy night, I know, how cliche', but it's weird. For many years I only ever made it from the sidewalk to the front door then about 5 years ago I actually enetered the house.....

Anway, what about you? Also, if you're an ESL person, what language do you dream in?
