NyQuil Dreams
Saturday, August 16th, 2014

I have a head cold again. Never fails. If I travel, I get sick. I went to bed last night after taking NyQuil, woke up at nine, ate breakfast, and then back to bed I went. My body aches from resting so much, but the dreams have been amazing. Mostly half-naked, unconsummated scenes. Is it the NyQuil? If so, I need another bottle.

So, when I dream, I’m my pretty young self. Or I’m someone completely different. Sometimes, I’m even a man. And I dream in color. Usually lots of turquoise, sunny yellow,  tangerine orange and spring green. If I sweep into a house, the room has niches in the walls with statuary. The beds look like something out of Hansel and Gretel—big four-posters with thick duvets. A lot of my dreams are set beside the sea or on a boat. Of course, the boat never rocks, so I’m never queasy.

I have a dream dictionary I consult whenever I have a particularly vivid dream, but it falls short quite often. How would you interpret alabaster-skinned aliens without sexual organs falling naked from the sky? Or basement swimming pools where the steps descend into a lighted grotto?

I suppose I’ll have to stir from this chair and go get a shower. Maybe the last of the NyQuil haze will clear. If I press “publish” now, will I regret it later? 🙂 What sort of dreams do you have?

    My dreams aren’t near as interesting as yours. The last one I can remember featured my father. He past six years ago. I do miss him. No brainer figuring out the meaning of that one. As for yours, sounds like a new book to me. 😉

    I love dream interpretation. Here’s my take on your two snippets:

    Alabaster-skinned aliens without sexual organs falling naked from the sky…

    The unique and unexpected is almost boring at this stage. No-sex is vanilla (alabaster). The non-sexual drop-in visitors might be telling you the sex-free market will be growing soon – write an alien sex-free romance!

    Basement swimming pools where the steps descend into a lighted grotto…

    Your spiritual realm runs very deep and is illuminated ~ it’s a magical and very beautiful place. It’s also where the pools of your creativity can blend with emotional energy and come to life.

    Oh my, what some dreams you have been having. I’m sorry you are dealing with a cold here in the middle of August. That’s no fun.

    I hope you feel better soon.

    Get well!!

    I have very weird, vivid dreams all the time. Never scary though.

    Gemma! Thanks for “reading” my dreams. Very interesting stuff!

    And thanks ladies for dropping by. Still have that horrible cough. Still taking the Nyquil which is killing my concentration, but I am getting more rest.
