Vivid Dreams

I had some really vivid dreams last night.  Sometimes I wake up and I almost feel like I’ve been living another life while I sleep.

In the first dream I was living in a house with some friends.  This place looked nothing like anywhere I’ve ever lived.  There was  a small yard, and bordering the yard at the back edge of the property was a huge, derelict looking building.  I asked someone what the building was for, or if it was used.  And they said yes, it’s a prison.  So I ended up IN the building somehow, sneaking around and trying to figure out what was in there.  I ended up running into a guard, and she said, “Check out our new coat room” and pointed towards a door.  I went through the door and through this narrow staircase and ended up in a HUGE room that was a giant thrift store / gift shop.  I remember thinking, “how are they ever going to sell anything, it’s hidden in this prison down some creepy hallway.”  There were all sorts of different things, clothes, books, giant exercise machines, and even a frozen food section (I’m not kidding).  I remember thinking how strange it was they were selling food and why they were doing it.  I ended up looking at the old records that they had, but the only record player they were selling was broken.

After that, I ended up on the top floor.  I remember it was really creepy, and it was like some creepy old mental hospital from a movie.  These sprinklers randomly came on and sprayed everything with this bleach like chemical.  I got caught underneath and got soaked.  Anyway at some point I asked someone where the prisoners were, and they pointed to this room and were like, they’re all in there.  It looked like they were all cooped up in one room and they were all pounding on the windows.  It was pretty creepy.

That’s the end of that dream.  In my second dream I was this little Jewish boy (??  I know weird) somewhere on the border of Germany and Russia (there’s no such border, but whatever) and I was running around in the woods trying to escape from the army.  I remember I was with a couple other people and we were trying to set up tents in the snow.  One person was dumb and set up their tent in plan sight of the road, so I set mine up back behind some trees.  Eventually I found my way into some giant lodge near a camp site and the owners of the lodge didn’t seem to mind me going in there.  At one point I was scouting for a better hidden campsite and I ended up in this area with these giant old propane tanks.  Just then about 10 people from the army came around the bend and one of them saw me.  I tried to hide further, but there was a shootout or something.  I somehow managed to make a run for it, but I remember having molasses legs (you know in a dream where you can’t run fast but you want to?  or maybe it’s just me).  I managed to escape and cross the border and they wouldn’t let the soldiers go across the border.  It was so strange.  I ended up going into this movie theater to hide.  But I remember looking down and I was in this blue outfit with one of those yellow felt Jewish Stars that the Jews had to wear in WWII.

OK I have NO idea where these dreams came from or what they mean.  They sound creepy but I wasn’t really that scared in the dreams, just maybe stressed out a little.  I guess one theme in the dream is feeling pursued or trying to hide from people.  Not sure where the holocaust theme came from.  Weird.
