Last night, Chris and I went out to dinner sans kids for the first time since August 2009 and to a movie for the first time in about a year.  We began our evening at Mio Sushi where I had a bowl of miso, spicy white tuna rolls and a rainbow roll.  I was stuffed.  We then headed over to Laurelhurst Theater for the movie.  The theater is right next to the building where my midwives are located so it reminds of being pregnant.  I was so full from the sushi that I kinda felt pregnant!

Now, back on topic.....dreaming.  The movie, if you haven't seen it, is about the layers of reality that our subconscious creates and how that gets tapped into when we dream.  In the film, there are a group of people who mess around in the subconscious of others in order to extract information from them while they are asleep.  This is typically to gain secret business info, access codes to money, etc.

I have always been a very vivid dreamer and really intrigued by how our minds work while we sleep to reorganize our emotions, anxieties, and relationships.  So I am asking for help from my handful of readers today....share a dream you have had.  It can be recurring, recent, once from childhood.  If you don't have clear memories of your dreams, please share how you experience dreams...what do you remember, how do you feel during and after?  Do you notice specific foods that trigger more vivid dreams?

Good to hear you guys got to go out!!
I would really want to see this movie! I am also very intrigued by dreams.

When I was a little girl, I used to have a dream that my bed could fly. I would fly around over towns and farms using my bed. I loved that dream.

Last year,shortly after my parents returned to Poland, I kept having a dream that I went to visit them. The dream consisted of me walking through the kitchen door while they were sitting around the table.
Same dream again and again for a few months but not every night.

I also used to have a dream, when I was little, about talking to my grandma. The dream started soon after she died. It lasted for a while and then stopped.

Sorry to "unload" my dreams like that!
