"Just remember, we're family, that's what having a good driveway means." Quote from a group of friends sitting out on the screen porch bonding and worrying that they won't have as good of a time again in the future. Looking out on the newly refinished driveway someone gets up and proclaims the above.

--

Get a call in the middle of a very busy day that a close friend (a real life friend too...not some dream extra playing the part of my friend) is in the hospital and has one day to live. I drop everything and drive to the hospital to hold her hand and say happy things in her final hours of consciousness.

Waking up from that one was FUCKED UP. (And actually REALLY happy to realize how far from reality the dream was.)

--

Leave it to me to forget the long action adventure dream of the night. I knew I shoulda written it down at 7am when I first woke up.

I normally tell friends when I dream about them but I feel kinda weird telling a friend "I dreamed that you were dying."

I mean, it's kinda depressing and morbid.

Oh God - when I first read that, until I got to the part, I thought it WAS real.

She might be happy to know that you rushed right over.

You don't have to tell them you had a dream. Just call to keep in touch, silly rabbit.

Aw, Zach... i just got your IM...

i'm fairly happy that i'm not dying either! But your story made me blush nonetheless, just because your dreamself was so sweet & loyal. It reminds me of when i used to talk to you wonderful people on channel...2 years ago.

It seems that a disproportionate number of people have dreamed about my death, strangely enough. :) i know it is silly, but it still shocks me that i am important and/or memorable enough to show up in someone's dream.

That is very strange indeed, since as I was reading his post, I guessed that it might be you, as well. Figured I'd never find out, until I saw your comment.

Dreaming of Death

(Link)
I can't say that I have ever dreamed of anyone I know dying. If there exists any dreams of death, usually it is of myself killing other people for whatever reason that they've offended me.

The most bizarre dream I've ever had was one where I was dead and my spirit was visiting my own funeral. I didn't know that it was my own funeral until I walked up to the casket and saw myself lying there. Then I started to knock things over scaring all my friends and family. It actually amused me to do that in my dream.

Re: Dreaming of Death

I've only killed other people in my dreams in times of INTENSE stress in my real life. Most of the time I'm killing super bad guys.

In one dream, pretty much the worst dream I've ever had, I thought I was killing a Nazi but it turned out to be a guy I really looked up to and even after I realized who it was I didn't let up. I just stood on his throat because I was scared for my life (trapped in a bombed out house in WWII France with a bunch of Nazis). That guy represented my ideal of selflessness, thats what I was killing in that dream out of fear. It's the only dream I've had where the "meaning" of the dream was crystal clear to me. It all made a lot of sense in the context of the time and the INSANE personal crisis I was going through at the time.
