Holy mackerel! Last night I had a dream about getting into an argument here on Bettermost about posts that went back years!  :o

I won't say with whom the argument was with; I don't want to start a real one!  :laugh:

I went to Boarding School here in the UK ....after my mom died. This was decided by my father.

I dream I am back there some nights. It was/is a beautiful place. I remember I had a favorite tree I loved to climb there. A large old Cedar tree.Standing proud and strong. In my dream I find myself running down the forest path ...I am in tears ...broken hearted actually. I get to my favorite tree. I feel safe.I throw my arms around the expanse of trunk then I say " I won't leave you....I won't ever leave you".

 My time at the school wasn't particularly happy.........so why would I want to stay ?  :-\

I have dreamed this so many times over so many years and I have no idea what it all means !

suelyblu, it's clear that the cedar tree represented a haven for you, and possibly reminded you of the safety net of your parents. Even though you were unhappy at school, it was a beautiful place in the garden underneath the shelter of the tree. The sight, touch and even the smell of the cedar tree must have offered you comfort. Don't worry, you can always return there in your dreams.

Last night I had a dream that woke me up. Just a short dream where I was driving recklessly on purpose on a windy mountain road. There were no guardrails and rocks were falling both onto the road and off the edge of the road down a sheer cliff into a valley far below. Now, before you tell me to lay off the video games, I don't play them! But I did get a look at a game my son-in-law was playing yesterday. He plays "League of Legends" incessantly.

Later on I remember a snippet of a dream where my daughter was coming inside the house and stumbled over some things that looked like oval rocks. She said, "You should pick up that bread." I went over to look more carefully and they were loaves of bread that the children had taken out of the cupboard, taken one bite out of, and then threw them on the ground.

That sounds like the Million Dollar Highway, over the mountains between Silverton and Ouray.

I had a dream last night that kind of frightens me. I saw my maternal grandmother in the dream, and I can't recall ever having seen her in a dream before.

In the dream my dad and I were driving in a car along a road near the town where he and my mother were born and raised, and where my grandmother always lived. I saw my grandmother walking by the side of the road. She was headed in the same direction as my dad and I were driving, so I didn't see her face, but I knew it was my grandmother in the way you know these things in a dream. Besides, she was wearing the sort of house dress that my grandmother always wore. Oddly, she also had a wreath of daisies on her head.

My dad was doing the driving, and I told him to stop the car, and I would get out so that my grandmother could ride with him, and I would walk the rest of the way into town. So this is what we did. My dad stopped the car, and I got out, and my grandmother got in. And that's about all I can remember. I don't remember seeing them drive off.

Why does this dream frighten me? Well, at some time before my mother died, she told me that back in 1992, when my dad was recovering from his open-heart surgery, my mother had seen my grandmother and my uncle, my mother's oldest brother, approaching the bed my mother and father shared. Mother told me that she "knew" they were coming for my dad, and so Mother said to them, "It's not his time, yet." and they went away.

So, was my grandmother coming for my father again? By getting out of the car so that she could get in with my dad, have I let her "take" him?

Incidentally, my grandmother died the day after Christmas 1980, and my uncle died in the early-mid 1970s; I forget the actual date, but it was while I was in high school.

I think I'm going to have give my dad a call, because the more I think about this, the more upset I'm making myself. And I'm not making any of this up.  :-\

Jeff, my mother dreams often that her first husband, my father, is coming to take her to the pearly gates. The idea of a loved one escorting us to heaven is comforting; however, facing our mortality and that of our loved ones is upsetting to say the least. The Tibetans believe that in sleeping we are rehearsing for death and that in dreams we can learn much about the life beyond. Do take every chance you can to call your dad and to be with him.
