I was in my Grandmothers house. My Grandmother and I sat together at
the kitchen table, we shared a meal that she had cooked. The room was
light and sunny, she smiles at me and talks
merrily. I feel that I am very found of her. Then she goes out into the
corridor and starts to walk up the stairs. I follow her some
steps after, not to stress her, since I know she walks faster if I walk
too
close behind. On the top step she turns around, smiles at me and
disappear.
I run after to see where she has gone, but the stair turns into big
sails of
canvas. I use all my effort to hold onto the sides of the sail and try
to hoist
myself up to the first floor, but the canvas gets slacker the further I
climb
and I slowly slide down.


Dreamer’s thoughts to the dream, own interpretation:

I was very found of my
grandmother and part of my childhood I lived with her. I could trust
her, knowing that she was always there for me, and she had this
wonderful
quality of not underestimating children. When I had this dream she
was 91 years old, and I think I sort of prepared myself for that she could not
live forever. I could bring with me the qualities she had given inside of me,
represented by the meal we ate that she had cooked

I had just been in an accident together with three other people and
literary lost my head, I did not bleed much though. We where at an old
fashioned hospital and sat together thinking and speaking. I found both very
difficult without a head. I tried to write a bit, but all I wrote became
disjointed and senseless. Our heads were on the bed behind a cupboard and we
put them back on our throats when we wanted to smoke. But they where completely
loose and had nothing but a mechanical function. Some cats came in and I
cuddled them, it felt simple to do that and I liked it. It was something I felt
I could manage. Doctors came in to examine us, and thought we functioned odd,
but they gave me little attention. Then the doctors chased away the cats, I
tried to protest, but it was not easy to talk without a mouth. The cats did not
heed them and came back and I continued to cuddle with them. A doctor called
and asked us many questions on the phone said he was doing a paper on our case.
None of us where good at talking, but some of the others took their heads back
on, in the end I managed to speak using only my vocal chords. I could not
think, but tried anyway to answer the questions.

Dreamer’s thoughts to the dream, own interpretation:

Maybe
this dream is about loosing ones head in the sense of not beeing able
to think. It might also be a reminder of how much of our consciounsness
that is in our heads, but that it in some ways is possible to function
without this “head consciousness”. In this state I can relax with
simple things, things that got to do with sensing, touching and love
for animals.

Snails, I was about to hold an origami workshop for some snails, but
they came to early and I did not manage to take proper care of them because I
was busy cleaning out of the house and packing for a flee market. They was
crawling around in the attic; they needed to be warmed a bit to make them
lively. Some laid in a drawer with steam, the others were getting cold and some
were lying on their backs. I became frightened that they where about to die. My
mother told me there where certain rules for politeness that hindered guests
from dying, but they where not usual. She asked: “Are they dressed?” I told
her: “No”. “Then you can’t ask them to undress and bid them sit down with a cup
of coffee”. I was moving from the flat and everything was bearing sign of
breaking up. I found some old things and pictures connected to memories.


Dreamer’s thoughts to the dream, own interpretation:

I feel this is about beeing too busy making changes in life, leaving
too little time and effort taking care of friendship, to keep relations
with friends “warm” perhaps? Why snails? I have no idea! Then I get
this advice from my mother about how custom can help me hinder my
friendships from dying.
