Today’s writing prompt was write a post about how far we traveled from our home. I’ve already done this in July 2014. Instead of repeating the same post I’ve decided to write about dreams and the confusing dream I had recently.
Dreams mainly occur in the rapid eye movement(REM) stage of sleep– when brain activity is high and resembles that of being awake. Rem sleep is revealed ,by continuous movements of the eyes during sleep.
People are more likely to remember the dream if they are awakened during the Rem phase.
A few days ago I dreamed I had an interview for a job, I was thinking whether I should go to the interview, suddenly in my dream I made up my mind to go. It seemed to me it was not too far from my home.
On my way I stopped at an unknown house and asked two little kids whom I had never known if they’d like to go with me Strangely enough they agreed .Three of us were walking, without knowing where we were going, the kids were following me, they didn’t ask any questions.
In my mind I knew where it was and I was walking, where I thought it was, was in Gander where I used to live.
We stopped and went into a house to ask for help, one of the men whom I never met offered to take us there in his wooden car. We got in as he was driving along I saw a building, I quickly exclaimed, “that’s Bait ul Mukarram, I know now which way we should go!”
Then in my dream I was thinking, it doesn’t make sense, ‘Bait-ul Mukarram’ is in Dhaka, Bangladesh, how can I be there, I live in Canada?
I was disoriented, I could not think anymore, I opened my eyes and found me in my bed, I was trying to think what the name of my street was.
Why I dreamed all this I have no idea, unless it was the effect of the flu’ shot I had a day ago.
