Two nights ago I had another distinct dream. The hubs and I were having to evacuate because of some sort of disaster (thank you Walking Dead marathon) but that was not the part that made such an impact. Rather it was while we were gathered with other dislocated people, we ran into someone we knew 10 years ago and started talking about our lives and such. Some how, in the way dreams work, we moved onto a conversation about design and then we were looking at the prototype of an Eames-like lounger. I could practically sketch the thing right now it’s that clear in my mind. What was interesting to me about it was that it was collapsible like those cheap-o sports/beach chairs that fit into their own bag.
The dream went on but the only thing that really stuck with me when I work, was the chair. So… I went straight to my handy dream source (like I have before) and found the following explanation:
I am at a bit of a transition right now professionally/vocationally and this was actually an insightful reminder for me to not be in a hurry or anxious about the future, but to continue to be open to my present. And mostly I think it’s the last of the explanations: contemplation before action. (Or rather as my sister would say: paralysis by analysis.) I’m evaluating several things right now and want to make sure I make the “right” move. Thanks dream-brain for helping me unravel some pressure I’m feeling to make a decision!
