Welcome to day ten of the Createyou86 May A-Z Blog Challenge. These posts have been full of little personal tidbits that we hope you are enjoying. One more tidbit is that generally I (Emily) do not remember my dreams, and any dreams I have that i do remember are in black, and white.
As a child I had a couple of recurring dreams. When I say recurring I mean relatively frequently (a couple of times a month). In one particular dream I am a very young child in a black and white city that is literally crumbling down around me, and I am with my family. In a panic to get out of the city I am separated from my family, and find myself alone surrounded by lava coming out of the cracked earth, and sheer panic happening all around me. In an attempt to find a safe spot, I run as hard, as fast, and as long as my little legs will take me. I end up in a town down the road that is relatively untouched by the surrounding chaos. I decide to run into the forest where I seem to have played before, and looks familiar to me.
I have stopped running, and begin to take in the wildlife surrounding me. I hear the birds chirping, the plants are luscious, and as I walk deeper into the Forest, and the foliage becomes thicker I happen upon a barrier. Seemingly a wall, but upon closer inspection it is a triad of doors made from the surrounding trees, and there is no way around it. I must go through one to continue my journey. Each door has a number placed upon it, 1, 2, 3 so I rely on some childish schoolyard edict and think to myself .
First is the worst, second is the best, third is the one with the hairy chest!
While deciding that the second door is clearly the best choice, I step closer to the door a little fearful of what will be on the other side.
I place my tiny hand on the handle, turn, and push.....what greets me on the other side of this particular door is not my family who I had lost in the earlier panic, but my best friend. He was much younger then, but he is my now fiancé, and I couldn't think of anyone I'd rather be trucking through a dream with. Have you woken up yet?
If you were in a nightmare, and had 3 doors to pick from that you had to go through what would be on the other side of one of them? Let us know in the comments below!
