It’s All Just a Dream
Would you too like to experience the mind-bending thrills of the movie ‘Inception’? Delve into reality’s multiple incarnations and get lost in dreams that may be real and reality that may only be a dream! All you need is a functioning uterus and some handy male genitalia. Combine, stir, wait. A lucky few will then find themselves enacting their own ‘Inception’ storylines!
Seriously, pregnancy dreams are wacky beyond belief. The most incredible experiences happen between six am, when I am woken by my husband leaving our bed, and eight thirty am, my new, mandatory “wake time” (without which I could spend days in there….days…) Between my dissolving memory and the dreams within dreams that mirror real life situations I encounter during my day, I am constantly asking myself – wait, did I just dream that? Did the architect and I agree on a 27” fridge, or was that conversation entirely a product of my sleeping brain? This morning I was at my parents house, sad because my father was dead, when I woke up. My father came in the door singing. Stupid me! His death was just a dream! Five minutes later I woke up “again”, my father alive, not talking to me. Perhaps I’ll wake up again soon, and find this all dissolves, and my father in reality, is a functioning communicative father.
To paraphrase Descartes, maybe this all is just a dream….Printable Version
