spotless mind

Writer's Block: Dream On

Do you ever have recurring dreams? If so, are they good dreams or nightmares?
I have two dreams which reoccur from time to time. In one of them I'm trying to escape a valley filled with hundreds of tornados. The valley is usually filled with broken down, abandoned buildings in which I run through searching for my family. If it ends up taking too long to find them, too many obstacles getting in the way, that's when I'm able to control what's happening. In the other dream, which is really a nightmare, I'm inside a house with a boy ghost living downstairs. The set up of the dream is always different, but the ghost and the way the stairs look never change.

I used to have other recurring dreams that I haven't had in a long time. There was the one of my brother, who seems to be withdrawn into his own mind and completely oblivious to these men in suits trying to track him down. So I would have to drag him into the shadows and to all these secret hiding places, all the while trying to remain unseen by these mystery men. The other recurring one is quite possibly the coolest dream I've ever had, along with this one of two men stalking paris hilton and fighting amongst themselves. Strange, yes, but funny!

Ok, so the coolest dream ever... I was walking down an invisible road at night, which seemed to be in the middle of the sky. There's an abundance of stars above me as well as beneath my feet. It was lightly raining. I could see the raindrops  as they collided against the invisible pavement, but I could not hear them or feel them. The rain was silent. Everything was very silent. I was walking through this beautiful silence, and I was lost, but not in a hurry. I knew home was somewhere down this invisible road, but I didn't know where, and I wasn't really worried about it. I was lost, alone, and content.
