My niece mentioned the other day that it would be cool to video tape your dreams.
I’ve had dreams similar to that one throughout my life. I’ve always wondered if it’s because when I was very young we lived in a haunted house with a basement just like the one in my dreams. I can recall being afraid to go in that room by myself. So naturally it makes me wonder, even to this day, if something malevolent resided there. Or, maybe it wasn’t evil at all, but then again, why was I frightened to be alone in that basement?
I don’t know.
This one time a friend of my parents was staying with us. One night, he ran up the basement stairs scared out of his mind. He told them as he was falling asleep the covers levitated off him. Needless to say, he never entered the basement again by himself.
So, back to recording our dreams. It would be cool to do, because maybe it would help us answer questions about things we’ve always wondered about. It might even unlock a subconscious door that would help us discover things about ourselves or what happened to us we’re not consciously aware of. But then again, are some things better kept under lock and key? What do you think?
