MickinMD Posted February 11, 2020 Share #1 Posted February 11, 2020 I have a recurring dream theme that happens a few times every year where I can't find something specific that should be easy to find and I spend a lot of time not finding it: a street, a building, a car, a person, something small, etc. Perhaps my subconscious is telling me there's something I haven't found or accomplished yet in life but the objects or people I can't find sure don't give me a clue. Last night in a dream I had another with that theme. I parked my car near a restaurant (the dream was in color: a big yellow sign was above the doors) at 72nd street (there is no such street in the location I was in, but I didn't realize that in the dream). I walked a short distance into a building of Johns Hopkins University (not a JHU building I know in real-life, a sort of museum-looking place: huge with lots of rooms and hallways) and after an indeterminate time wanted to leave and go to my car. I walked outside and realized I had exited from a different door than the one I had entered. So I walked back into the building and tried to retrace my steps to find the door I had entered close to my car. At one point, I looked out a window and saw a signpost that read "4th Street." In the dream it didn't occur to me that I couldn't be in a 68 block-long building (having entered near 72nd St.), but when I looked out a while later and saw a sign that read, "9th Street," I realized it was going to take forever to get to 72nd Street. I figured there must be some unusual street numbering, so I went outside and soon got completely lost on a darkish street with row houses on one side and a high stone wall on the other that prevented a long view for orientation purposes. I had asked people I passed by, inside and outside, how to get to the restaurant (I remembered it's name in the dream) my car was parked near and how to get to 72nd Street. Some said they didn't know, some ignored me. I don't know how much longer the dream lasted but it remained a continued, very frustrating inability to figure out where my car and the restaurant near it was. Then I woke up, relieved of the fact I wasn't really lost. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
