I don’t know how many of us dream every night, remember them, too as if they were for real, wake up, drift off to sleep and continue the same dream? I came to know that a fellow blogger dreams in Technicolor. So do I. My dreams have never been monochrome. My dreams have been most often than not, action-packed, thrilling, enjoyable, and pleasant. I meet long-lost friends, find myself back in school or college, like we have just returned from a really long holidays. Such dreams repeat fairly a lot. And they are the pleasantest. But I do not miss the thread of the present. Actually it’s kind of funny as I find myself sitting in my old hostel room exchanging notes with my collegemates about our present day life too, like our marriage and children! But how we have bunked college for years, and now it’s suddenly our final semester exam and we have to cram up everything at the last minute!

All in all, my dreams are a platform where I relive my cherished past but try to incorporate my present onto it too. So I take assurance in the fact that I am not subconsciously obsessed with the former and discontented with the present.

Friends who visit my page are most welcome to share their dreams too. Would love to hear about them. When I say dreams, it’s the nutty chaotic kind we experience at night during sleep. As for the serious kind, mostly meaning “ambitions” I wish you all success that you realize every one of them.

Deepa !!

So you get dreams in technicolor..LOL..

I've tried many times to recollect the dream but in vain.

Like twitter blogs, yesterday I was experiencing bits and pieces of dreams without any correlation..

But strangely once I got a solution from my dream. I was seriously writing a short story but did not have a clue how to finish it.....On that day I got a better solution in my dream.

That story was a grand success among my blogging frenz....

well, what do you say abt it ??

Deepa J said...

wow! You are a lucky dreamer :-) Would love to read the short story.

I like to dream. Hence I like to sleep! :)

Nice post. But I've never bothered whether my dreams are in B&W or technicolor.

And I've once had the dream of talking with lord brahma in my childhood. Before I could finish asking him the boon, my mom woke me up!!

Anyways... that was the effect of previous night's "Vishnupuranam" serial which I later realised...

Do you have the time to dream now? How does Neha allow it??:)

Ok, I never dream much though I daydream a lot. I usually pray I don't get nightmares :) Dhur swapna dharse nashathi.

Deepa J said...

aaaaargh Ramki! don't you say that!Neha has just started sleeping through the night, from about 11PM to 8AM. I should say, this itself is a pleasant dream come true! :-)

உன் கனவுகள் கவிதை போல் இருக்கிறது.
கடந்த காலத்தின் சுகமான நினைவுகளை மீட்டுவது போல இருக்கிறது.
சரி. நேகாவின் கனவுகளை அறிந்தாயா?
தூக்கத்தில் திடுமென, சன்னமான கன்னங்குழியும் சிரிப்பு வருவதைப் பார்த்தாயா?
கீதாஞ்சலியில் தாகூர் அதுபற்றி அழகாகச் சொல்லியிருக்கிறார்.
நீ எழுதியவைகளையெல்லாம் மெல்ல படித்து எழுதுவேன்.
