I’m finally feeling better after being sick for a week. I never get the flu–always get that flu shot! I rarely get a cold. But this really laid me low.
The worst of it was the fever. I ran a fever of 101 degrees or more for three days. And I had the same dream all three nights, just picking up at a different place each night.
I dreamed I was designing a website for someone (which is not at all in my skill set, but in the dreams I could.) The site was vividly colorful. At some point I realized that whatever I did to the website was being echoed in the real world. I remember thinking this was pretty cool, watching colors and images cascade out from the screen into reality.
Then on the third night of this dream I made a terrible mistake, and everyone in the world suddenly had reptilian scales instead of skin, in a sort of purple-and-black python pattern. And people turned and looked at me with snake faces and black, snake eyes. I freaked out and woke up.
Someone at work said this was a responsibility dream. Apparently I’m afraid of screwing up in a really big way and having it affect other people. I am getting ready to start a new job, and I am both excited and worried about starting a new endeavor.
I guess the good news is, whatever I do will spill out into the real world, but it’s unlikely I will turn people into purple-and-black snakeskin monsters! Thank goodness my powers are limited 🙂
