I wish my subsconcious could let go and dream BIG while I slept. There are some dreams that are memorable and beautiful - my friend and I both hummingbirds and soaring into the night sky, looking down at the earth and its jewelled lights far below. I can still see and feel the images from that dream.
The dream I had last night doesn't even come close to memorable. I am almost embarrassed to share it because of the sheer unimaginative quality. The dream I had last night may be what separates me from movie stars - surely celebrities never dream such dull and uninspired dreams as the following.
Last night, I dreamt of granola. I was telling someone about the brand of granola that I eat and that the grocery store will sometimes offer a dollar off coupon. I was very animated and eager to share. I really need to stimulate my imagination. There are so many ways that the dream could have been more interesting:
- Eating granola while perched on the back of an elephant
- Shopping the cereal aisle with the Dali Lama
- Driving madly after someone who had spray painted the word "Granola" on my car door
- Finding a time capsule filled with granola
Any of the above scenarios would have been more interesting. But no. In my dream I was simply blathering on about my favorite granola and the availability of coupons. How can I supercharge my imagination, friends?
