I like hearing about the lives of our subconscious selves. What's showing up in everyone's dreams these days?
I dreamed the other night that I raced to a performace at a choir concert and when I got there they were stalling on the stage waiting on me. The pianist was improvising a long introduction as I gathered myself and prepared to take the stage. The music was something unusual and new that I don't even know in real life. But what made this concert extra special was my outfit. I had on a bright red top with small flowered print, a pleaded plaid skirt, a pink/red/black/white plaid jacket, hot pink tights, and long black army boots. I thought I was really something in this dream, and when I awoke, I was a little jealous that I didn't actually own any of the articles of clothing I wore in my dream. My true wardrobe is comparatively bland, and concert black is the standard when taking the stage.
My second dream is a recurrent typical teacher's dream. I'm teaching one of my students, and I've assigned her a piece that's way over her head and now I don't know how to fix the situation. For better or for worse, she decides to take charge of the lesson and ends up teaching herself. Unfortunately, the lesson time is over, two other ladies are waiting for a joint lesson (I don't remember this being an option in my Policy!). We are now 15 minutes into their lesson time, and I have no idea how to get the first student to stop and leave. Plus, I've never seen the other two ladies before, they have a whole slew of kids with them, and I figure the best thing to do would be to send them away and start them next week. The dream ends with me trying and trying to get everyone to leave, but they just won't go.
