Tuesday Night Dream

The dreams I remember from last night were very mundane so I will present you with a dream that I have from time to time. I don't consider this one to be recurring in the same sense as the train dream because the train dream has been exactly the same (except for the end) both times I have dreamed it.

Occasionally, I dream I'm working at a job I had thirty years ago that I hated. I was a receptionist in an ophthalmologist's office. The women I worked with were great and we had a lot of fun but the doctor and some of the patients could be very mean. In the dream, the office is always horribly busy and I'm trying to do a million things at one time. At some point in the dream, I always realize that I have a job that I love now and that I'm just dreaming and the dream ends.

Okay, dream sleuths, off you go...

I did work at an ophthalmologist's office and it was a nightmare. At staff meetings we had to meditate for 10 minutes. He was also into Indian iurvedic medicine. Shark cartledge cured cataracts. He and his wife (an optomitrist who worked with him) refused to let their babies have vaccinations because they were into homiopathic medicine etc. And that is only part of the story of the drs.

I believe the old job represents chaos (past & present) and your new job, which you love, represents peace, harmony, and contentment.

I further believe that the present chaos which threatens to disrupt your inner peace stems from suppressed emotions of which you feel for a certain person to whom you have become very close.

Despite, however, the chaos, you are happy, content, and at peace with yourself and your relationship with this certain person.

Jill - I wonder if all ophthalmologists are odd birds.

Anonymous - You're right about the job part, that's for sure. I was also still married to my ex-husband at that time. Talk about chaos.

We'll all have to wait to see if I decide to unleash any suppressed emotions. Whoever you are, you evidently understand that it's just not my way.

I guess the question is, why rock the boat if I'm happy and content?

Calls to my mind the old proverb -- "if you're happy and warm in a pile of shit, keep your mouth shut."

Sometimes dreams are very, very literal. That's what this sounds like. I bet the time it takes for you to realize you're happy is in direct proportion to how happy you are.

Popeye - Interesting. I'm going to watch for that next time have that dream.
