Odd Dream

I had a really strange dream Saturday night, and I thought I'd share it.

In the dream, I was driving on the freeway, and my car broke down. There were people with me, but I don't remember clearly who (I think it was my kids). I called a tow truck, but when it arrived, there was no operator, so I had to hook up my car myself.

I hooked the car up and lifted the front wheels off the ground. Then, because the cab of the tow truck was locked, I knew I'd have to ride behind it in my car. The problem was that there was no driver. Instead, there was a control box with a long wire that I strung back to my car. So I ended up sitting in the driver's seat of my car, trying to remotely control the tow truck that was towing me.

Driving on the freeway was a little challenging, because I couldn't see over the tow truck. I tried to go slow, use my signals, and watch for other cars as much as possible. Then I woke up.

I think this dream could have several meanings for me. It could mean that I now have to help myself. It could also mean that I realize that I now have to do things myself that traditionally I had help with, but that I'll manage. Another interpretation might be that although I cannot see the road ahead, I have no choice but to take control and go forward. Maybe it's a combination of all three.

I welcome any other amateur interpretations.

Well, that dream was kind of freaky! But your interpretations were pretty good. My fist thought was of one of your blogs from a week or so ago. Your "Faith in the Unknown". Not being able to see the road is an "Unknown". Maybe your subconcious (sp?) is trying to tell you it's time to "practice what you Preach" and have that faith. Deep down you know things are going to work out, you also know that it's just a matter of time.

That's an interesting perspective - thank you for sharing it.
