Last night I dreamed I got on a plane and flew to New England. It's not a rare theme for my dreams, since I really want to move to New England. I'm scared of planes, though, and every dream with a plane is like "Everything's okay, I can fly" but then I wake up.

The weird thing about this dream was that I was only there for a short time. I wanted to go to another state in New England and hopped on a plane, that plane took me back to Oklahoma. Boo!

Shure, I can relate to that. I can't get out of the damn building.

Has anyone ever flown under their own power in their dreams? It seems to be something that happens more often now in mine.

I love the feeling.  :tellmemore:

...  Another time I dreamed that I was running swiftly and gracefully thru the forest on all fours -- still very much human.  It was fun.
I've had this dream too!
I was running through the forest from a predator but I wasn't going fast enough so I started running on all fours and that's how I got away. I woke up so tired.

Maybe you can write a quasi-military fairy-tale from yours. :)

I agree with Randy, you have wild dreams, xSilverPhinx:snicker:

All that studying Silver does may have caused brain damage. It would explain a lot.  ;)

I've been sleeping fitfully for a week now, not because of dreams, but more like visions or hallucinations of doing a big painting. The details of the subject matter are very clear in my mind and I even see the size: 2 m high by 3 m wide. I know what's going to happen: this is going to hound me until I am compelled do it. Is this a sign of mental disturbance, or inspiration, or both?

Completely normal. :lol:

:secrets1: I like to call it: completely normal temporary dementia.

I could tell you a little more about what goes on in the brain while asleep that could cause these urges, but that would make it less mysterious. :grin:

Thanks, I suspected you could provide a bit of insight, even if it isn't something I wanted to hear. Temporary dementia? It may be a bit more permanent — it survives into my waking hours, to the extent that I have started preliminary sketches and even measured some walls!

It may also just be a pathetic attention-grabbing stunt with no artistic merit.

And me!!! In my dreams I can do the breaststroke in the air and fly as high as I like, all the while keeping an eye open for any high tension power lines above me.
