Dreaming of days gone by

I've always thought I'm not much of a dreamer. When I sleep I mean. For much of my life it has been very rare that I remember any details from dreams when I awaken. In fact I rarely remember if I dreamt anything at all.

There were exceptions of course. Sometimes I would wake up in the middle of a dream and on those occasions I would recall snippets from the dream that had awakened me. Or sometimes, in that lightly dozing nap state, where I wasn't even sure if I was waking or sleeping, I would experience a dream-like state.

But lately something has changed. Lately I have been experience some very vivid dissonant dreams filled with characters from my long ago past. I'm not sure what's causing it.

Years ago, when I did dream about people from my high school days, I used to assume it was because I was homesick for Oregon. Well, now I'm back "home" in Oregon, more or less, and have been for some time now. But my dreams are inhabited by people I haven't seen, and have rarely even thought about in many years. It's like dreaming about ghosts almost. While the themes of the dreams are not particularly dark or depressing, I always wake up feeling odd and a bit down.

I like to dream but I haven't really liked these dreams. Perhaps a dream specialist could tell me why.

I could ask my mother, she studied that stuff years ago. Of course, she also told me that when at 8 or 9 yrs. old, and I was dreaming about snakes crawling under my bed, that I had penis envy. So I'm not sure how much stock I would put into her interpretations. Because I assure you at age 8 or 9 I never thought of penis' let alone envy them.

PS. Maybe it means you should get a hold of a couple of old buddies. (Or ladies, that might be more enjoyable)
