Do you ever have strange dreams? Mine come in waves. Sometimes I swear it's a full moon that's two days away and the light is recharging the wild and random parts of my subconscious. Other times, I'm not so sure. It is what it is, I guess.
The other night I had some odd ones, though. One involved my husband. He was by me, and you could flip a light switch and he'd change from white to black. Like, legitimately turn into another man. On-off-on-off. Hubby. Not hubby. Hubby. Not hubby. I think he looked like Kanye West. (Maybe that was from recent news reports.) I had to laugh because the imagery was so surreal in the dreamscape.
I also dreamt of opening my cell phone and batteries flew out (for some reason, triple-As, which definitely weren't right). It was followed by a very large orange butterfly emerging, and flying right into my eye. I felt it brush against my eyelashes and lid, and jerked. Suddenly awake, I was looking around for the butterfly, but then realized it was a dream.
Or was it?
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was a dream, but you know, they feel so real.
Maybe in some other realm they are.
Or maybe while you're dreaming them, they are real.
Or maybe it's the brain mucking through all the clutter of the day.
In any case, it's interesting. I've had more interesting dreams than the shifting husband or the butterfly, but these were so vivid, like getting some super high-def dreaming in.
Do you have strange dreams? Do you dream in color?
