Sweet Dreams


Have you ever dreamed you were the opposite sex?  Did it freak you out both in the dream and in reality?  I have dreamed this more than once.  And it has freaked me out.  Do I want to be the opposite sex?  Or is it just morbid natural curiosity? 

Have you ever dreamed something that left you feeling sad, angry, or guilty--whatever emotion you may have experienced in the dream when you wake up?  I have.  I have woke up feeling angry and not because I was in a bad mood--although it didn't help.  It was because of the dream I had.  And then I have to spend the better part of a day convincing myself it was just dream.

Have you ever dreamed you could do something you can't really do?  I often dream I can figure skate.  Like Kristi Yamaguchi!  I will pull off triple axles, triple toe loops and the whole thing.  However, when I dream I have magical powers they always fail me.  Now where is the logic in that?  I couldn't do a triple anything in reality, but for some reason I can do that in a dream but not twitch my nose and make things appear.

Have you ever dreamed something scary?  And you wake up scared to move.  Scared to breathe.  I had a series of bad dreams the other night, and never was I so grateful for my little man to wake me up because, "one of his bad dreams did not get caught."  (in his dream catcher)  Well neither did mine.  But I pulled up my big girl panties and got out of bed to take care of things.  I set the boy up on the floor next to our bed, and climbed hastily back into my own.  I scooted as close to husband as I could get and grabbed his hand.  He was my reality.  I was seriously freaked out by these dreams.  When I drifted back into sleep, the dream had shifted.  Instead of being caught in the midst of the scary things, it was a movie I was watching.  Well I suppose a movie is easier to dismiss.

What have you dreamed lately?  Don't be shy.  We don't judge.  Play along with Glamazon!

The letter U is not an easy letter to work with.  Then it hit me...kind of hurt too.  Unicorns.  Who doesn't love these mythical majesties.  They are elusive, graceful, and have healing powers in their horns.  Did you know that?  I didn't.  I learned that from wikipedia on the internetz so it must be true.

Growing up one of my favorite movies was The Last Unicorn.  A story about a lone unicorn who learns she is the last of her kind.  She doesn't believe it to be so she sets off on an adventure to find her friends.

I tape recorded this movie.  That's right, tape recorded it.  Because we didn't have a VCR...yet.  So I LISTENED to my movie over and over.  I still remember some of its dialogue.  Another favorite tale of the unicorn is told in a poem by one of my very favorite poets as a kid, Shel Silverstein:  The Unicorn.  It totally explains it all! 

What little girl doesn't fall in love with these beautiful creatures.  Real or imagined, the unicorn is an amazing and magnificent creature.

Today's post was brought to you by the letter U
And by the number 5
