I dream...

What do you dream about?

I sleep a lot a lot a lot. 
I ♥ my bed!
I probably sleep more than the average person and would sleep more if I could!
The only problem with my sleeping is that I dream a lot a lot a lot, probably more than the average person.  Sometimes my dreams haunt me, I have a lot of nightmares.  My Psychology of Sleep and Dreams professor told me creative people are prone to nightmares.  Maybe I should be satisfied with that concept, but my nightmares still plague me.

I’ve created this as a girl who is sleeping/dreaming… but in reality it’s me daydreaming… about either being at home in my comfy bed or lounging on the beach. J

I ask the question again… what do you dream about?

I have a blank sketch ready to receive answers:

  1. Hi Misty,
    I'm so glad you stopped by my blog now I'm introduced to your blog. Your art is so beautiful and soulful. I've always been a "dreamer" not necessarily in the day dream sense, although I do day dream..But my dream life has always been extremely vivid and sometimes frightening. If a person has had a lot of trauma in the past (abuse of any type) and I don't know that you have, but they tend to have more nightmares than people who've lead a relatively happy life. It's also part of the artistic soul. However, I am now in therapy with a Jungian and I'm guessing you know a little bit about Carl Jung if you're taking classes on psych. and dreams. Since, I've been in therapy with my current therapist, my dreams have altered a lot! I still wake up from painful and sometimes scary dreams, but it's strange how they're transforming so much and don't leave me feeling exhausted and overwhelmed as much as I used to. So, perhaps one day you'll be able to work with a counselor who practices dream work. Would love to see more art of your dreams. Sorry, I wrote such a long book here ;)

  2. Misty, beautiful painting! I truly love your art! You know, I dream alot to! I actually day dream alot as well! Sometimes, I am sitting and I just fade away. At night, I dream about so many things! And, I wonder what they mean? Could be a guy? Sometimes, I find myself in highschool and I keep forgeting my locker combination, so I am late for class! LOL! Other times, buildings are falling down, or I am flying. I really try to remember them! Have a great day my friend ;o)

  5. Hi Stacy!
    hahahaa oh man, the high school dreams scare the beejeezus out of me! I always feel so out of place (do I realize subconsciously I'm an adult or is my subconscious expressing how painful high school was for me - just so awkward at that age)!
    Oh, and flying is one of the common themes for dreams (I love those dreams btw)...
    now you have me daydreaming... :)

  6. Hi Eimear!
    Sounds like we play in the same boat! :D

    oh and btw to you and Stacy, there are methods you can practice to teach yourself to better remember your dreams if you are interested. :)
    Try keeping a dream journal for starters. :)
