I was just going to pout this in different thread in a reply to Del, but thought I'd open up a whole new thread for people to enjoy and post into...
What dreams have you had come back repetitively to you thoughout your life? Or even aspects of dreams?
I've had a few, some I can interpret as slightly related.
Firstly, and perhaps most significantly for this forum, from when I was a little kid, I had dreams of coloured lights (red, blue, green, yellow, orange) in the sky above at night. They were about as bright as Venus or Mars (or Sirius, or only half-sirious - hahaha). As life progressed (using a very liberal interpretation of the word :p), those lights would get closer. I recall that in my late teens or early 20s, I saw them up in the sky (through the roof), and then they came down and were only just above my head. One of the last (and most powerful) of those dreams was looking up at the sky, and seeing them get closer. I ran inside and tried to tell my family - and was promptly ignored. So, I went back outside. They came down, and then one evolved into a big saucer ship, and I was going to get in. At that point, people all around were looking up, dumbfounded, shocked, etc. My father was flabbergasted. And I said to him, "Yeah, I know. I tried to tell you, but you wouldn't listen. BTW, bye, I'm leaving now (with them."
One of my other series is that of a distorted hometown... yet, the distortion is always fairly similar. It generally relates to the way the river runs through the city, and how the suburbs are arranged around it - like the river is higher, and so some suburbs have been inundated. I had this one again only a couple of weeks ago.
Obviously, I've had other series (usually involving school stuff, and the one true love of my life... but those aren't so relevant to this forum).
