Weird Dreams

I’m not sure what a dream interpretation book would say about the dream I had last night, but it sure was a doozy.  It just started off strange, with my family and myself going to some type of local play at the college town I grew up in as a child.  For some reason we had to stop by some people’s house who were some type of animal caretakers and we visited with some people we knew (who were from my current town of residence) and when we went outside there were so many people leaving the theater and college students rushing around that I got lost in the crowd and separated from my family.  The next thing I knew I was being pushed onto some train with a crowd of strangers.  After riding the train a short distance , the doors of the train opened and I exited noticing a carnival in the distance near a mountain (that looked nothing like the town I grew up in) so now I had no clue where I was.  While looking at the lights of the carnival I noticed a huge Ferris wheel – like the world’s biggest Ferris wheel in Singapore.  I exclaimed amazement at it and then the next thing I knew some type of piping popped out from it and a trapeze artist began swinging in a huge arcs around with the Ferris wheel.  I like a little excitement and thrills in rides but even I knew in my dream that this would be terrifying.  The ropes he was swinging from stretched so far out that when he was at the top of his arc he was nearly touching the clouds.  When the ride stopped and he stepped off I noticed that his wrists had been tied to the ropes so he couldn’t fall while looping around and I made the mistake of saying “Oh, well then that wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be.”  Which made people around decide that I would be the next one to ride!  I don’t know how they got me hooked up but in my dream I remember circling around and as I got to the top of the arc being scared to death but I just held on to the ropes and let my body dangle from the far and as I started the downhill part my stomach started to drop like going down the hill on a roller coaster.  But then I realized that it wasn’t that scary, it was actually kind of fun.  That’s when I started enjoying the ride to that the next time I was up near the clouds I stretched out my body like I was flying like superman and went down that way, laughing and whooping and hollering.  Every time I’d loop around my stomach would drop a little like the roller coaster ride but then the fear would turn into fun again.

Strange, but fun dream.  Don’t know why I dreamed it…haven’t seen any carnivals lately…
