Last night I had a dream where I thought I was with my neighbor
going through some of her things that she had out for the trash.
I picked out a number of things that I could not believe she was trashing,
and brought them home. Then I find out it wasn't her stuff,
but belonged to a neighbor farther down the street,
and she wanted to be paid for everything.
And her prices were higher than I would pay,
so I knew I had to pack it all up and return it.
And then, in the dream, I realized I could just wake up from the dream
and not have to do anything about the dream!
Which I did. I woke myself up, and lay there thinking about that.
The dream is highly symbolic for me. In "my waking life"
I also don't have to pick out the neighbor's trash,
or pay exorbitant prices for someone else's trash.
I can just "wake up" and say "interesting!
Thanks, but no thanks!"
