Going back to something yesterday, have to admit I've been thinking about you and knives a fair bit - knives, blades, swords, it all connects. No distinct conclusions, but some considerable possibilities.
OK. Here's what I
got out of my dream:
Ohio: for the past three years I have travelled to Ohio at about this time of year. This year it looks like I won't have the funds to do it (or, while I could take them out on my credit card, I've more got this possibility earmarked for Nimbus
). This is annoying as I've really, really enjoyed my Columbus, OH trips and the people I've met there.
Travelling uncomfortably down a long and increasingly windy road: what it says. Angst.
Jonathan Ross: very funny on They Think It's All Over
, largely crap on his own comedy shows.
Fear of falling: partly what is says, partly I believe this is a pretty frequently encountered thing in dreams with a reasonably well-known meaning, though I don't know what it is.
Aaron Solomon: bloke I respect a lot and am thrilled to hear that he's doing so well. I suppose I have a nagging fear that he doesn't respect me as much as I respect him.
Remembering his complex e-mail address from years ago: damn, I'm geeky even in my dreams. Ah. Smug mode.
Giving ill-received presents: what it says. Angst. Fear of rejection, probably.
London Underground: I think and dream about this enough and like thinking and dreaming about this enough that I don't think it has any particular significance.
David Wallace: someone I haven't seen for years who I respected and liked but wasn't close to. Discussions of seeing people who I haven't seen for a long time might have indicated him. See also Aaron Solomon above.
Nick Parish and fiancée: like them a lot, have been thinking about them a lot recently.
Their particular location where they don't live any more now: I once went there for a surprise party for Nick, which was a lot of fun. General thoughts of going to parties.
Sword: no idea. If it helps, it was a really bloody big sword, stretching from damn close to my shoulders almost to my feet. I love dancingrain
Swordplay: reminded of friends at Oxford, particularly on the RPGsoc side. Some of you lot, in short.
Formula One and differences between real life and dream: was reading about this on Monday, thinking about Sunday's funny advert and so forth.
David Coulthard: favourite driver.
Being a co-driver of someone I respect: not sure, but probably significant somehow. Probably the role in which I feel most comfortable.
Fear of being in a car and falling again: not sure, but it's evidently a running theme.
Being in a car which falls into a body of water: used to be an occasional nightmare for me, but evidently I'm a bit happier with it now.
Landing in the water and being pretty much unharmed: ooh, maybe something to do with conquering past fears, I hope.
Being scorned by the mechanic/fan: a fear of scorn if I do go ahead and conquer past fears, but it didn't turn out too badly.hermorrine
: have been thinking about her (you!) recently, for obvious reasons. I suspect a lot of you others were in there as well, just the names didn't stand out.
Said pop stars: well, this one's down to you lot. I have very little notion of either of them other than from Friends list postings and the like.
Wondering if someone who I've been corresponding a lot with recently is still interested in me: I'm afraid I suspect this is just what it says and it's evidently just percolated down to my subconscious. :-)
OK, there's what I got from pretty much a surface scan. Further analysis very welcome indeed. I think there are probably some standard things in there which have reasonably well-known second meanings, but I don't know what they are.
Not sure if I actually believe any of the meanings or significances, but it's certainly fun.
