I walk in the countryside with rubber boots on my
feet, holding my two years old daughter in my arms. The weather is sunny and
the landscape beautiful. On the road are many pits filled with water and I jump
into them to amuse my daughter. The water splashes higher and higher and she
laughs. Then suddenly I jump into a bottomless pitch, my rubber boots fills
with water and drags me down. I let go of my daughter and am relieved to see she
floats up to the surface. I keep sinking and cannot get up.

Dreamer’s thoughts to the dream, own interpretation:

I had this
dream just after I split up with my daughter’s father. I think the dream both
shows the joy I felt when being with her and the anxiety of feeling responsible for
her alone in our everyday life.
