I’ve read that dreams are a way of making sense of all the stimuli that we face in our waking lives. I haven’t made a study of dreams, but I do know that things pop up in my dreams that we’ve talked about, or things I’ve seen or thought.
A couple of nights ago, near to morning, I was dreaming. I can’t remember what I was dreaming about, but some how a skunk walked through that dream. His presence was so realistic that I can recall thinking, “Maybe I should wake up,” to get away from the scent.
I woke about 6:30 and got my day started without much more thought about the dream or the scent, but as we pulled out of the garage on our way to exercise, Dear Husband commented that a skunk had visited in the night. 🙂
I guess we DO process what happens in our lives!
