CarolCooks2…#bloganuary 2022…Write about a dream you remember.

Day 23 of #bloganuary…Today’s prompt is…Write about a dream you remember.

Dreams are stories and images that our minds create while we sleep. They can be entertaining, fun, romantic, disturbing, frightening, and sometimes bizarre.

They are an enduring source of mystery for scientists and psychological doctors.

We may not remember dreaming, but everyone is thought to dream between 3 and 6 times per night

It is thought that each dream lasts between 5 to 20 minutes.

Around 95 per cent of dreams are forgotten by the time a person gets out of bed…given that we are said to dream that many times a night its weird that we don’t remember them…sometimes I remember a dream the next day but they are never memorable enough to remember them days or weeks later…

It seems many dreams are caused by our thoughts which are either happy or sad but unconsciously driven by us…

I cannot honestly say that any of mine have been memorable enough to stay in my subconscious for years…As compensation for that I will leave you with this beautiful song by Fleetwood Mac…

This post is part of the WordPress Bloganuary Challenge 2022 where everyone is provided with a writing prompt each day. Today’s prompt was to write about…?. Write about a dream you remember.

    HI Carol, I am prone to nightmares and repeat bad dreams. For years I dreamed I was lost in a water maze and couldn’t find my family. Then I dreamed that I hadn’t given Michael some or other medication and he was dying and I would wake up in a cold sweat. Before Greg got his final results, I dreamed only two results came through and they told us they’d lost the other 6 papers. Weird, isn’t it? How are your daughters doing?

      That is awful , Robbie I have never had nightmares luckily and very rarely remember dreams and the ones I do are generally connected to circumstances which I don’t really class as dreams just my brain working vertime as it is want to do at times…Thank you for asking about the girls Donna has one more session of chemo and then she is hopefully finished her treatment…Lauren has just has =d another scare but her ultrasound yesterday proved to be scar tissue which was a relief…plus she had a really reaction to her second lot of chemo so starts a different one this week so fingers crossed all will be well…I’m guessing they will monitor her closely xx

    I feel the same as you, Carol. I remember very few dreams, and certainly not for extended periods. I woke up last night and remembered a dream clearly, but that is rare. My wife and I were just discussing this tonight. She had one separate dream where her parents came to her in her dreams. I occasionally recall my parents in a dream, but it’s the same as any other vision. They are characters that are just there, and I happen to be a spectator.

    Nice post even with the artful dodging. I forget almost all my dreams but have a few that I have remembered for years, even decades. My problem has been fitting the prompts into the flow and focus of my blog

    I still have prophetic dreams. They are not as frequent these days, but I am confident enough of a ‘bad’ event happening to say so to my wife. Sometimes they are quite specific (unfortunately not as to time and specific place,) In a similar vein, I had a very definite premonition one Sunday morning about 18 months ago. I recorded on my phone that ‘something’ tragic had just happened so I had proof of my saying it. News broke later that day, and the timings matched up.
    I kinda freaked out a wee bit! 😀

        From his first album, 1966, which I absolutely loved. A very poignant song. He’s probably more remembered now for writing If I Were A Carpenter and Reason To Believe, both of which have been much covered. Also wrote a song about his heroin addiction – Red Balloon – which was beautifully covered by the Small Faces. The addiction took him before he even reached 40. Another sad waste of talent. x

    Interesting subject Carol. I am aware that I dream a lot but can never recall the content of my dreams. I have deliberately woken myself from a nasty dream but then can’t remember what it was.
