I had a variation of the test-taking dream last night. I was involved in a long and desperate search to find a clean Post-It note. I’d noticed that a friend (okay, it was Sylvia Day) was staying in a hotel room next to mine, and I wanted to leave a note on her door that I was there. The problem was that I couldn’t find a clean piece of paper, no matter how hard I tried. Everything had scribbles on it. I kept flipping through a stack of Post Its, wondering why they hadn’t been thrown away. I don’t know why I couldn’t just leave a phone message or actually knock on the door.
Dreams are weird that way.
Yet if I try to analyze this one, I think I know what it means. To me, it most closely matches the test-taking dream, because it was all about paper and writing and a time limit. (I needed to get the note posted before she left.) If I look back to what the dream analysts say about the test taking dream, it’s about work stress, being scrutinized, and/or anxiety. I’m deep into my current work-in-progress, and a deadline is looming. I spent a full day at the keyboard yesterday. By that, I mean 9:00 am – 9:00 pm (with a few breaks.) As for Sylvia being in the dream – I have no idea what that meant. Ha!
Yeah, my Dream Weaver has been hard at work.
