Last night I had an interesting dream, which has stuck with me, as few do. It seems significant that it followed the huge relief I felt when I learned that my friend does not have cancer. I have not dreamed this dream before, but it seemed a little familiar.
I was attending some large assembly like G.A. and was with a couple of friends or perhaps my hotel roommates. We were walking along a sidewalk late in the day, hungry for supper; I suddenly found myself talking to a former boyfriend who looked quite frail and elderly (he actually died a couple of years ago of a heart attack). I was somewhat separated from my friends at this point and after hugging him, I decided to go to the hotel before dinner and drop stuff off, get cleaned up, whatever.
But though I found the hotel fine, I couldn't find the elevator. Or rather, I found one but a clerk was just shutting it down with an "out of order" sign. So I went looking for another one. All the elevators in this building seemed to be in remote, hidden corners, and difficult to find. I couldn't find one and was starting to get rather annoyed when I woke up.
This dream mystifies me. I can't find threads in it, a la the Jeremy Taylor Dreamwork process, though I do see that my former boyfriend had come back to life somehow which connects to my friend's reprieve from cancer. And yet it feels significant.
A la Jeremy, "If it were YOUR dream.........." what would be happening here?
