What a hoot!
It was like something from a comedy movie! Very vivid!

My dreams are all over the place. They're usually in color although sometimes certain parts of dreams will sometimes be what I'd call "artistically grey-scaled". They'd fade to mostly black and white, or a monochrome scheme with colored objects being emphasized, or certain people or parts of the setting being in color. I experience whatever senses are most important to the "story" at the time. Sometimes I'm in my dreams, sometimes I'm not. Sometimes I'm myself in my dreams and sometimes I'm someone else. Some are third person, some are first person, some switch back and forth. Sometimes I can change them if I realize I'm dreaming and other times I can't.

Recently the dreams I've remembered have been pretty gruesome and anxiety producing. Kind of like if the Criminal Minds crew did a crossover episode with The X Files and Outer Limits. Really creepy and disturbing. Not sure what's causing them but I can't wait until they're done.

I have a dream that I actually like that I turned into a poem for my creative writing class last semester. If you guys are interested I can post it.

purple alien giraffe - please post poem.:) as a child i believed that i would die in real life if the monster ever actually caught me, if i ever hit bottom after falling from a cliff, etc., etc. then one fine nightmarish night i DID hit bottom after falling from a mountaintop (too much roadrunner?) and upon landing, bounced high and softly and happily harmlessly at the bottom, like a beach ball, to my waking surprise....

Last night I had the most bizarre dream of my life and I would not described it to anyone to save my life! I'm embarrassed to even have had it!

That's pretty cool! I've always abruptly awakened the instant before the final act. You mind took care of itself!

I never remember my dreams although this morning I awoke to the double sonic boom from the last shuttle landing as it passed over our area a few minutes before touchdown. Of course I was sure someone was in the house and after turning the news on I realized what had happened

I'll betcha they are working on or testing a new type of shuttle out as we speak. It's somewhere in the desert and taking off directly from the ground and flying into orbit with capability of carrying 20 people.

Betcha!
