Do you dream much? Not daydream while you’re awake, but do you dream when asleep? I rarely do and when I do my dreams are so discombobulated that no one could make any stab at their significance.
The other night I dreamed I entered a quiet cozy conference room anchored in the center by a long, beautiful, polished table. I was dressed to the nines for this business meeting—had on my three-inch stiletto heels and panty hose.
As others straggled into the room I began to compare my dress with theirs. So different. I asked whether I was in the correct room for the meeting. They answered with looks of “Yeah, but where did you come from? Don’t you know it’s casual Friday?” When the boss entered the room, his gaze zeroed in on me. “It’s casual Friday, take off that dressy jacket. And while you’re at it ditch the shoes and remove those hose!”
The last of my dream I remember is kicking off my shoes and peeling off my panty hose while everyone in attendance had a good laugh at my expense. Wonder why on earth I dreamed such a thing?
Since high school I’ve had a recurring dream akin to this business meeting one. In this dream I know it’s time for my class, but I can’t remember which class it is or where it’s meeting. I wander through unfamiliar buildings, down dead-end hallways, searching, searching. In all those dreams I’ve never found where I should be! Maybe that’s it—I need to focus on where I should be and what I should be doing. You think?
