Did you ever wonder if your dreams were rather like Alice's? A way of looking thru the looking glass into a strange and wonderful world were nothing was quite as it seemed? Were you could have tea with a Mad Hatter? Talk to a rabbit in a waist coat? Play croquet with the Red Queen with a pink flamingo that was incredibly tickilish any time you tried to pick it up to whack a ball that was actually a hedge hog?

I must admit when I was younger I used to imagine I was rather like Alice. Everytime it would rain I'd imagine that the sound of the rain was the sound of the cards running about on the roof getting things ready for the Queen. or that it was the flying monkies from the Wizard of Oz getting ready to go off on a flight. (I have always had a wonderful imagination). It's served me rather well actually.

Sometimes my dreams are rather surreal and help me find things that I have misplaced (which is rather useful). Other times my dreams make me wake up to let me know that something is going on around me that needs my attention. (Take for instance the night that I had a peeping tom literally right outside my window). I've often wondered if my dreams are a prelude to my reality or if they are just that a dream.

I've had dreams that have freaked me out to the point that I have refused to go back to sleep because I was afraid that I'd dream about them again. Does this make me odd?

    Thanks for sharing .... no I don't think you are odd. Dreams can be an outlet for our imagination, to find things or can scare the crap out of us.

I used to have reoccurring dreams about things in the bed (ie snakes, spiders). I get so freaked I will get up and throw all the covers off the bed onto the floor. Makes my husband laugh but it keeps me awake for a bit after it happens.

Try not eating right before you go to bed. I have heard this helps.

    My daughter had a detailed dream years ago about someone she was going to meet -- and she did. Her daughter, when she was 10, had a dream about where to find something she had lost. Of course, then there are the dreams that are just weird OR come from having pizza before bed! LOL May all your dreams be pleasant!

    When I don't sleep well I have BIZARRE dreams. I type them out immediately so I don't forget the detail. I thank God they are never really scary - just weird! Dream on :-)
