To sleep, Perchance to Dream

So I wake up with a strange fragment of a dream.  I was at the top of a roller coaster, some 380 feet climbing up a steel coaster by hand.  Why 380 feet? (Don’t know). But the prospective of a three foot wide track, and a sharp near vertical drop on the other side.  Reinforced the height.  Since, I have skydived and free climbed heights aren’t a big issue.  The wind of course was very substantial.  But the view was a shallow sea, ocean (Hawaii or Carribean) the colors were awesome.  Now, I have near been someone who thought of jumping off a very tall object with the object of not surviving the landing but the thought of landing in the sea was there.  

Eventually, I climbed down the way I came.  Although, normal thought maybe.  But in a climbing situation, much like driving uphill on one lane road there are rules.  You don’t put someone in a position that’s hard to recover from.  Down is always easier.  But I’m taking the path up by it being so narrow.  Of course, there’s a thirty something guy half carrying a seven old year up as I go down.  Keep in mind three feet wide and extremely sharp incline, so no place to step aside here.  

So if the are any advanced dream translators out there?  Why does one climb a roller coaster?  The wrong way coming down thing is just as bizarre as if you wrote with the wrong hand in a dream.

  1. I’ve always thought that dreams were considered the brain’s way of processing our daily happenings. What are some of your current challenges or stresses in life? Are there things you are working on that can reconciled by this image you’re mind has created? A thin incline, very precarious, difficult to negotiate fairly with others on the path… a way out but also precarious. It seems it’s more about the others on the way. I say that because you don’t have a fear of heights. So are there other people in your life you are concerned about being en route with you? Just some thoughts.

    1. I usually don’t remember great details in dreams. But to remember the feelings within the dream. I’m not any more stressed about anything. The people in the way don’t look familiar. The dad and his son are interesting that they are ascending as I drop. But the feeling of jumping off was weird. Maybe I drank too much😀

      1. Ahhhhh! Having a few wobbly-pops out in the back forty. Now that will bring on the dreams. Weren’t chewing any dried fungus either right?

      2. I hate mushrooms. So I’m technically not a fungi. It would be a bad place on a fog night to hallucinate. I have sunk about ankle deep a few times. Good place to hide things. Coyotes and foxes are really good at cleaning up a place of spare food.

      3. True enough. I once lost a boot out at Lake Moody near the university. I was taking an ecology course and we were mucking about on the shore. I went in knee deep and could not get my leg out. I had to leave the damn boot there and walk back to school with one sock foot! The coyotes can have my rubber boot!

      4. No surfing and skiing factor in the idea of learning to stop or maneuver as a learning practice. I prefer my legs intact. Maybe with the right teacher…

      5. I’m your girl! I taught skiing and racing for 15 years. 5 of which were pro. I have the shattered bones to prove it. 😉

      6. I’m a very good student. I can be a little out of the envelope with questions. So if shattered bones are part of it, than you really don’t learn to stop but how to fall. That’s how karate worked, you learned how to reduce the impact of landing.

      7. In 15 years, I had nobody once break a bone. Control is the first lesson. Learning how to stop, or even just keep turning until you slow down by beginning to go up hill. The most frequent injury skiing is a sprained thumb, not broken bones. People like to put their hands out to brace from the fall.

      8. I prefer to land on my head. Least thing likely to get broke. Of course, I have a bad neck from doing this. I fall at work in snow and ice often. It’s easier to get hurt trying not to fall.

      9. I thought your biggest adversary were pooches, not the slippery walks. Perhaps you should get some spikes for your shoes! 😀

      10. Have spikes they work great on ice but not pavement or while driving. Dogs aren’t the problem their owners are. I have a lot of years in and no dog bites. I actually trained people on body language of animals.

      11. Cool! I had a dog rip a newspaper out of my hand when I was younger. I didn’t see him behind the door and as I opened up he jumped up and took the paper and shredded it. I slammed that door and ran wailing down the road.

      12. You startled the poor flea bag. Probably woke him out of a dram of chasing cats or running free. The paper was something that he might have been beat with, so he tore it up before you could use it on him. Oh wait, if it was female dog that’s why they are called bitches

      13. Hey now! Well I was 11 years old. And I didn’t know he was there. Otherwise a very nice dog. But I had a few choice encounters over the years. Consequently I’m a cat person. Though I’m getting much better with dogs. They really sense my fear. I just want a floof around soon. I like Black and chocolate labs. I’ve been without a pet for a while now and it’s time to take care of one again soon.

      14. true enough. But cats don’t travel as well and I want to be able to take my pet camping. Either way, I need a floof at the end of my bed at night.
