Interesting two-part dream last night. It may have been two separate dreams, I don't know. Anyhow, I'm hiking uphill in the Naomi Peak Wilderness Area above Cache Valley, Utah. I've been there a few times by myself in the summer. This time, however, my in-laws are urging me to keep climbing. Also, there is no snow anywhere in sight, unlike every other time I've been up there. Instead, there are beautiful, colorful Alpine trees and flowers in full bloom.

In part two, I'm atop a very long waterslide in Charleston, South Carolina. It's not a typical waterslide, however. Instead, it's a metal slide much like you'd find in a public park, and it's only wide enough for one person. As I get to the top (I'm almost there when the dream starts), I think I'm going to be sliding into the Atlantic Ocean. Instead, I see a fast-moving river at the end, a couple of miles down. I give some advice to a person who has never done this slide before (evidently I have gone before), then that person disappears from the dream. I start sliding very fast, then see a woman and a child in front of me, with a Nissan automobile in front of them. I slow way down and take the kid in my lap. The car is almost stopped, but it is moving along slowly. The dream ends there, before I get to the river.

Scintillating Part II dream!! Dontcha wish you knew who was in that car? Dreams are such a fun way to step out of the circle of real existence, and sometimes the dreams are so amazingly unique I wonder how I came up with that all by myself without consciously trying to.

I don't know what the car represented, except perhaps that it was just something to slow everything down. I do, however, own a Nissan, and my previous car was a Nissan also. The dream Nissan, however, was different from those. It was a 1995 or so Sentra. Could it be that I'm the driver of the car and the person trying to get down the slide? That would be interesting, especially if the dream is about what I think it's about.

So are you going to tell us what YOU think the dream is about? (Not that you have to, just wonderin'.)

Dream #2 sounds like you have traffic anxiety. The slide sounds like an entry ramp and the river sounds like a highway.

But maybe that’s what it would be for me because as I read it, it reminded me of my driving experience every day.

Randy, thanxs for sharing your voice. Actually you sounded pretty much as I imagined and I didn't think it was nasal at all - very cool.

Hey Randy, you sounded just as I imagined you would. Oh and not at all nasal. Very nice putting a voice to my online friend that I love to converse with. Hope to hear more in the future.
