Dream Diary

Pisces are often associated with dreams and spirituality, people who spend their time drifting between reality and fiction. 

"Pisces alternate between reality and non-reality in keeping with their introspective natures; their voyage between consciousness and an unconscious dream state says much about their intuitive, almost psychic natures. For this reason, Pisces can be hard to pin down, prompting some to call them the chameleons of the zodiac. The Fish are happy to be considered hazy, since there's a certain sense of safety in that self-proclaimed netherworld. That said, they won't stay away for long, since one of their primary goals is to help others. Pisces are compassionate, charitable and will quickly put the needs of others ahead of their own. "  (Astrology.com)

I am a dreamer. I day dream often, inspired by stories I read, by the films I watch, by the fictional characters I love. For those who have been following us for a while, you will already know just how passionate we are about films and books. The truth is, we love stories. Stories fuel the imagination. I love going to bed at night, and immersing myself in a fictional world, following a character's journey. It's an escape from reality, a short break from the chaos of everyday life. It's a chance to sit back and get inspired, to fall in love, to cry. Daydreaming is something I have always done, for as long as I can remember, my internal monologue would suddenly be interrupted by a string a thoughts, like a random quote from a book I read years ago, or a scene from a movie. Holly & I often reference movies or books when the opportunity presents itself, because why not? (Also it's pretty fun). 

My daydreams are pretty interesting, but my dreams are just impressive, and by that I mean weird. Maybe it's because I'm a Pisces, maybe it's because I read too many fantasy books, or maybe it's because my thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations (see what I did there?) meaning that my thoughts, ideas and imagination are so scattered, I have a hard time putting them together and expressing them, so my mind tries to process them through dreams. And so here we are. Freud once said that "the dream is the expression of a disguised wish". Maybe that's true. Or maybe my dreams don't mean anything at all, and sometimes you just end up dreaming about a gorilla at the gate of your house for no reason. 

I'm extremely happy that I experience the strangest dreams. Whenever I tell them to a friend or a family member, most of the time they simply raise their eyebrows and respond "Wow Summer that's weird." And trust me, they are. I recently started a "dream diary", where I would write down my dreams and illustrate them, attempting to capture the images I saw on paper. Unfortunately my drawing skills aren't exactly breathtaking, and the drawings consist of stick men, but at least it's enough to remember the surroundings. It's for this very reason that I thought of starting a Dream Diary page on the blog. Not only would it allow me to share my dreams on a bigger platform, but it will also be beneficial as I want to improve my writing skills. I intend to write them as a story, not just describing the people and surroundings, but actually following my character's journey.

Would you guys be interested in such a page? Please let me know! Have a lovely end of the week.
Summer xx
