So here's an indulgent kind of post- I just wanted to share a dream I had recently. It kinda freaked me out because I woke up moving- that's how intense it was. Something I don't normally experience. Anyway we'll get to that shortly. So here's the scene. I'm attending a play or something and a bunch of us are abducted and taken... somewhere. In an airborne vehicle. The next thing I remember is being in a forest with other prisoners- why are we being held? No idea. It's not good though.
Flash forward a bit and I'm in a field with three other prisoners and two captors. For some reason (gotta love dreams) the captors are asleep? And somehow I know that I have to bash them with a rock to escape. Yeah that's a little gruesome, I agree. In my defense I don't actually bash them? Well, I do, but it's like off camera. Like, one minute it needs to be done, and the next it's, um, done. Yeah. So then we book it into the woods and have to climb this hill to where a fence is- and beyond it is this great field, surrounded entirely by houses. Big, nice houses. They all seem to have huge back windows and so the light from the houses partially illuminates the field.
We're in the field now and there are scattered trees around. Here and there. The goal, I guess, is to make it to the houses and jump the fence. Once we get into the neighborhood we have more of a chance? You know how dreams are, they don't always make sense and your subconscious just goes with it? Oh and somehow we know that every house in the neighborhood is in on it- there's a reason they ring the field. They're like employees of whoever kidnapped us or whatever. Anyway we're in the field now and it's nighttime, but helicopters are coming and their search lights are crisscrossing the field.
We start to panic a little but I tell everyone to stay low. The area off to the left is darkest and we make for that. Unfortunately the search lights find some of us and suddenly there are people behind us, on foot. Closing fast. I think two of us are taken at that point. It's super tense and I am breaking for it now- full speed. I'm coming up on the houses and the fence is right there- just a few more steps. Someone is right behind me- my fellow prisoner, or have they been taken and it's the bad guys? I do not know but I literally am feeling these last few steps, the fence is there and I leap without stopping- I grab the top of the fence and haul myself over.
I hurl myself forward, clearing the fence... and I wake up. Moving. I am actually moving forward. Which is, in hindsight, kinda funny. But man was that intense. I have weird dreams at times but nothing in a long time has felt that real.
Do you ever have dreams like that?
