Full Moon Dream

I’m driving down the interstate and am drowsy. I jerk awake and it seems as if I am on a different road.  It is still two lanes in my direction (I feel like I’m going south) but there aren’t many street lights.  Seems more like a more rural highway.  I’m not sure how I could have gotten onto this road.  I see flashing lights in the distance and as I come to a stop, I see a grisly accident on my right.  It’s two mangled cars, but up on the hillside along the road, as if the intensity of the crash flipped them up onto the hill.

There are several cops and also mechanics at the stop. One of them uses a catapult-type contraption and shoots a spherical object up into the sky.  I’m not sure what it is.  While I sit in my car, I suddenly here a bang and feel something drop behind my head and catch in my hair.  I look up and there is a small hole in the ceiling of my car, about ¾ of an inch.  I get out of my car and show the hole to the cops and mechanics.

Suddenly I’m in a car repair shop and there are two mechanics telling me that it will take 30 days for them to get to the car and they’ll call me when it’s repaired. I tell them that they should call me when they are ready to work on it because I’m not leaving the car with them for 30 days.  They consult a bit and then say “well, if you can wait, we’ll do it right now.”   Then I’m rolling over and hitting the alarm.

As I’ve mentioned before, I subscribe to the “detritus swirling around in your subconscious” theory of dream interpretation, however for this particular dream, I’ve got nothing.

What do you think my dream means?

  1. You have a sense that you need to be somewhere, but wherever it is, it’s not where you are right now. Also, those tomatoes on your salad last night were perhaps a bit overripe…

  2. I was fascinated by the recent news story about the young woman who dreamed she swallowed her engagement ring, and then woke to find she really had done so.

    1. I’m still not sure what the spherical object was. In my dream. It seemed clear to me that whatever went up was what came back down and came through my car roof although clearly much smaller by the time it came down. Like a meteor burning up in the atmosphere. And although in my dream I thought about it a few times I never did check in my hair or in my hood to see what had come back down.

  3. OT – Cokie Roberts has passed away from complications of breast cancer at the age of 75. A great journalist, and a much needed voice of reason; she’ll be missed.

  4. Rise and Shine Baboons,

    I think that dream was a stress dream and an accumulation of thoughts and stuff.

    The other night I dreamt I was done with surgery and just waking up. My knee did not hurt as much as I thought it would. In fact it ached and throbbed just like it does when the weather changes. Then I woke up and realized the weather was changing which is why it ached and throbbed, and I I had not had surgery yet. Anxiety dream.

  5. That’s a good dream there VS! Lots going on. No idea what any of it means other than your life is busy these days.

    I dreamt about the theater again last night; I thought the show was open and I was over theater dreams for a while. Three nights ago I dreamt about tractors and that was nice.

  6. It’s amazing to me that you recall so much detail, VS! I rarely remember anything these days but maybe one fading image, and I usually can’t remember that after I’ve been awake a couple of minutes.

    What I wake up with is a feeling, usually of being in the middle of some huge project that I’m just about to get a handle on… This would fit, as the Fall Book Sale I’m coordinating is just 11 days away – it’s my first time doing it, and though I have guidance and help, it’s a steep learning curve. I’m sure there will be fodder for a blog post once it’s over.

  7. I don’t know much about dream interpretation, but perhaps it’s significant that it felt like you were going south. According to one idiom web site, to go south can mean:

    1. To escape; to vanish or disappear. (Not necessarily in a southerly direction.)
    Everyone in the gang went south when they learned that the police had discovered their hideout.
    2. To fall or drop; to depreciate; to lose quality or value. (Especially related to finances or stock exchanges.)
    The company’s stock profile continued going south for the third day in a row today.
    I used to be a big player in the stock market, but all my investments have gone south lately.

    3. To cease working or functioning; to quit, fail, or fall apart.
    Talks between the labor union and the construction firm went south yesterday, so it looks like workers will be on strike again soon.
    My computer is only a month old, and it’s already gone south.

    Maybe it’s a warning that you should take your retirement funds out of the stock market.
