Another "running on all-fours" dream

I'm not sure you could call this dream reoccurring, since it is never the same. Only one element remains each time, running on all-fours. I have been having dreams similar to this for ... I'd say at least six years, maybe more. I haven't kept an exact count. I do keep a dream journal. And since I'm fascinated with dreams, I do quite a bit of dream interpretation. This one has me stumped as far as interpreting, but I highly enjoy it every time:) Anyone out there care to give it a shot?

Here's last night's dream:

I was in the parking lot of my old high school. The old building has long since been torn down and a new one built on the same site. In this dream, construction was still going on. I had been walking around, not sure why. I remember needing to get inside before they closed.

I took off on all fours, running through the grass and clay. This is the first time in a dream like this that I've gotten my hands dirty. When I stopped in front of the door, obviously the girl inside looked at me funny. LOL I mean, I'd just been running full out like an animal across the grass. I held up my hand and said, "I need to wash my hands. Can you let me inside?"

She did. I washed my hands and she quickly locked me out. hahaha The next thing I know I'm in a mall. Don't remember ever being in this mall before, but it had nice carpet:) I couldn't seem to get where I wanted to go fast enough. So, in front of everyone I started running on all-fours again. I didn't get nearly as many strange looks as I'd expected.

Then, I woke up. The thing that always strikes me about these dreams is how good running like this feels on my hands. Always there is cool grass crunching underneath my palms, the wind in my face, and a sense of absolute freedom. It feels powerful, good, and free. I've never ran in a building before, until this dream. I enjoyed the carpet, but not nearly as much as wet grass.

If anyone has seen the new Wolverine movie, in my dreams I run exactly like Sabertooth. So, when I saw the movie, I didn't have to imagine what that would feel like, I know. Yes, my hair grows really fast and I do feel drawn to Wolverine. But that's beside the point.

Does anyone have any clue what this reoccurring element to my dreams, or this dream in particular might mean? Like I said, it's been going on for a long time.

I'm still here

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I've just had a lot going on and am a bit overwhelmed. Mostly financial stuff that I won't get into. I'm having a lot of trouble finding a second job that will pay anything at all and not screw me out of hours or screw me out of the job completely.

Anyways, I'm still here. I'm still writing. I've just got a lot of crap going on.

About the space opera I'm working on

I think this space opera is going to be great once I get finished. Here's the plot so far. There are five intergalactic mercenaries who, because of the side they take in a war, get accidentally labeled as superheroes. LOL

Beyond that, there are two crew members who have a relationship they are trying to deny developing between them. It's some pretty hot stuff. Right now I'm about 34 pages in and we're on our way to rescue a friend from a sex slave trade on a foreign planet. Woohoo!

Oh, I forgot to mention it still has paranormal elements. One of the main characters is a part of an endangered species ... vampires.

Blah, Blah, Blah

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. I've been really busy with a little of this and that. One of my friends is about to have a baby any day now, so I've been spending some time with her. We've been crab fishing and to the beach several times. (Yes, the pregnant lady too. lol) None of us particularly like the sun, so we've been going at night. lol

Besides that, I've started a new book. The working title is The Night Shift. It's a space opera, my very first. If you're wondering what a space opera is, please dismiss ideas of someone in a phantom mask singing about his loneliness in space. hahahha

A space opera is like a soap opera, it just takes place in space. Of course, there are other more genre specific things that define it, but that's a pretty simple way to sum it up.

I should be writing right now. I'm really running on empty here. I've been too busy. I need to be working, plus I think I should just go ahead and realize that my critique partner is gone. Not to get into details, but I think the part of her life where she listens to (and helps proof read) my stories is over. I should just suck it up and get used to doing it by myself.

Holy crap I'm tired. I'm gonna try to get some writing done before I have to go to my other job.
