In my dreams

Last night I dreamed I went on a blind date, and when I arrived to meet the man, he turned out to be a four year-old boy. His mother and father were also there; I liked them very much and spoke to them most of the night. Later, his parents paid the bill and left early, and for the first time in the evening, I sat down with my date at a table for two.

"Listen," I said. "I don't think this is going to work out." (The boy looked as if he'd heard these words many times before). "I mean... you're not really that tall... and I'm super tall, you know what I mean?"

My date had a pained look on his face.

"But my mom had to pay for this," he said, and I got the feeling this wasn't the first date his mom paid for.

"You're right," I replied, "I didn't think of that; I should have chipped in."

There was silence. "Listen," I said, "If it makes you feel any better, I have every intention of sending your mother a nice bouquet of flowers tomorrow."

Suddenly my date eased up, as if everything wrong was now made right.

KT, this is a dream very much of the Jungian persuasion!
At its most basic level it is affirming the changes you have been expressing, and alluding to a much stronger connection to your spirit.
This dream brought to my face a great big smile for you!
(And I would like to suggest that the strange man on the street whose heart you dropped saw that in you too.)

Be well,

Ha! Guy, you're funny... this dream brought a big smile to my face as well, but I didn't see it as you did. I showed up to meet a man, and he was was four. I think even Jung would have a laugh and not bother with the analysis. Thanks for yours nonetheless, always nice to hear from you!

Having married a number of men who turned out to be "four-year-olds", I loved this blog post :>)

Great trick to get a babysitter. We're going to have to try it!
