I know some people like myself pay attention to their dreams...Usually I can figure out what the message is, if there is one at all...


Well last night, I had a dream that a couple of guys and some chick were trying to break into the door downstairs (the one in the hall that goes outside)...I live on the third door, so I walk out onto my porch and say "Can I help you?"...I had heard them arguing and decided to see what was going on because the two bottom floors are empty and were in my dream also...So, I am out on the porch and suddenly one of the guys is standing next to me holding a bag of coffee with the fair trade certified stamp on it..and he is ranting at me because he feels that it is not fair to his grandmother (who lives *somewhere* and owns a coffee plantation) for me to buy fair trade coffee...We get into this whole discussion and it ended with me saying-you really think it is not fair to buy fair trade?...and then I woke up..


Weird....I wonder if someone was trying to tell me in a very roundabout way that I should be buying fair trade more often...I try, but around where I live you don't find much...just coffee really...and some chocolates..

That was the strangest dream I have had in a while...I had some other ideas too..but, my head is still spinning from thinking about it...lol

Apart from the stress-induced dreams that are pretty obvious (like the one where my parents have me committed because I don't know what grad program to pick)  I've had a handful of really memorable, really inexplicable dreams and some horribly freaky nightmares.  Usually, if I remember a dream, I'll remember it forever or have it more than once, otherwise its gone.

Do you guys dream in color?  I only ask because I don't, my dreams are a grainy kind of black and white.  And on the rare occasions when there is color, it is predominantly one color.  I'm just curious if I'm a rule or an exception.

I had a dream last night that was like I was watching a movie.  I could see the screen and everything.  It was a good movie too.  Maybe I should become a screenwriter.

I write in my sleep. I get all kinds of great ideas in my sleep. Its like someone is telling me a story but I see it playing out like a movie with a narrator.

I really must find a way to let yall read my one about religion being banned without giving up rights to it.

Im guessing you read Brendas game thread and it made you think about where to get free trade items. If not then I got nothing for ya.

BTW go join Brendas game if you havent cause its cool.

I dream in color and stereo. :)

When I attended the School of Metaphysics, they said that people in dreams represent different parts of your personality.  We were asked to record our dreams every night, and then assign attributes to each person in the dream.  Those  attributes were things we were supposed to work on in our lives.
