Lately, my dreams have found me back at work in a television newsroom. But in these dreams I'm struggling, because I know nothing about the news business. I'm not sure if this means I want or need to go back to work. I think Freud would say that I'm subconsciously lamenting not living up to my full potential in my past career.
So I had one of those dreams for what seemed like five minutes last night, then awakened to my cat sleeping and purring on my head. When I went back to sleep, I dreamed I was pregnant. It was a very vivid dream. Strangely, my "pregnant" belly looked bigger when I lay down than in a side profile. Those around me were marveling at the miracle of my conceiving a baby, when they thought I couldn't. To top this off, in the dream I was almost due with a healthy baby.
Then again I woke up, thanks to the cat. I can't remember if I went back to sleep.
