I hardly ever remember my dreams. I know I dream. As a psychotherapist I occasionally interpret dreams (as a vehicle to talk about what is hard to talk about). So it bears considering that I remembered this one. In the dream I was standing in our laundry room pulling dead leaves from a small artificial Christmas tree and my mother-in-law was standing next to saying, “That’s the job of a taker…what are you giving in return?”
So…what does it mean? Is it about me? Her? Someone else? Is it about the Jasper Lilla series I’m writing these days?
