I have pretty vivid dreams and tend to remember them in the morning, at least for a little while. I woke up this morning around 6 and then drifted in and out of sleep for an hour and fifteen minutes. I’m being specific because here’s where the weirdness comes in.
Just a few minutes ago, I was in bed and dreaming. I was dreaming that I was driving down Studemont going north, just before I-10, and I saw the space shuttle fall out of the sky. It was upside down, and it crashed on the other side of I-10, somewhere in the Heights.
Not that odd, really, and I do have recurring planes falling out of the sky in my dreams sometimes. What was odd was when I sat down to do my morning routine of email and TV news and saw that the space shuttle landed (safely, thank god) literally at the same time as my bad dream. WTF? On some level, I may have known the shuttle was coming back today, but I’m sure I didn’t know the specific time.
Anyway, good to know there’s still a collective unconscious out there and it can still be tapped into.
