Friday Five: Dream (a little dream of me?) (copied from old weblog)

the friday five

1. What's the last vivid dream that you remember having? I don't know. If a dream hits me as being interesting for further reference I write it down before I forget it, otherwise I can't tell you what I dreamed about by noon of the same day no matter how vivid it was.

2. Do you have any recurring dreams? I have several; the most common was written by Robert into a piece called Junction.

3. What's the scariest nightmare you've ever had? Drowning. I nearly did when I was 4 due to a neighbor putting me into a flotation device designed to keep toddlers upright and my subsequently falling into the pool head-first. While my aversion to getting my face wet is barely noticeable to people now, I still have the occasional nightmare about it.

4. Have you ever written your dreams down or considered it? Why or why not? I write dreams down in the morning that strike me as particularly vivid or significant upon waking. I figure that dreaming is how I subconsciously resolve loose ends in my thoughts, and that by observing what I dream about I can gain a bit more insight into myself. (Yeah, I'm weirder than the things that come in your breakfast cereal, although AOL CDs in cereal boxes are simply Wrong and Bad.)

5. Have you ever had a lucid dream? What did you do in it? Yes, on several occasions. I use the technique to self-intervene when I'm most prone to nightmares. Keeps me sane and all. (:
