I didn’t like it very much. The dream left me full of questions because it was one of these dreams that you have and that you know means something.
The dream began with the sensation of falling. Then I realize that I’m about to land in a fast moving ditch full of water about 10 feet wide and I land on the steep grassy bank and grab handfuls of grass trying to stop my falling into the water and I do come to a stop.
I am relieved in the dream to have stopped before I landed in the water, but the ditch bank is very steep and I can tell that the handful of grass that I am holding has stopped me but that if I pull in order to pull myself up the grass will tear and I will end up in the Water.
I pause as I consider my situation grateful that I was not in the water and imagined how cold it would have been and marveled at how close I had come to landing in the water.
Then I heard the sound of the grass tearing. Not all of it, just a few blades but enough to start the feeling of panic and my senses are heightened at that moment and I look and see that my legs ARE I the water and the added tensions of the current is what is causing the grass to give way.
It is then that I notice that most of my body was in the water! And that just a foot from where I hang I see a culvert that intersects the ditch and disappears underground beneath a large golf course I was apparently on.
Much of the water moves past the culvert but I am hanging just inches from its entrance and the current that is pulling me is stressing my hold on the grass and pulling me towards the water that is disappearing underground in the culvert.
I think to myself that if I am quick enough I could get my legs beneath me and gain a foothold before the current carries me down into the darkness but the current is so strong that I don’t know if I can do it fast enough.
Then I notice for the first time that the water IS cold and I hear the grass tearing and giving way, and I wake up.
To me this dream is about my relationship with Anneliese, because to me everything is about Anneliese. Its about me about to lose everything, including her.
SO, if anyone thinks they know what this means I’d be glad to listen.
