Dream of: 22 May 2021 "Short Trip"
self may be discovered at
the end of a search
Another fellow and I (we are both probably in our mid-20s)
are walking across plowed fields from Portsmouth to West Portsmouth,
Ohio. We try to wend our way past many highways blocking our path.
The other fellow is ruggedly handsome (and reminds me somewhat of an
old, highschool friend I used to have). I am somewhat upset with
myself for undertaking this trek without a car. It seems as if we
have already been out here for a long time and as if the trip may
last all day just to arrive in West Portsmouth. This trip has turned
into a big problem. We can see a row of white houses in the distance
in West Portsmouth, but I am still not entirely sure of the path to
take to reach the houses.
As we start walking across a field, I notice a woman (also probably
in her mid-20s) standing on the other side of a wooden fence and I
decide to ask her for directions. I step up to the woman and
ask her how we can "get to West Portsmouth." She points at the
houses in the distance as if the way should be clear, and she says
something like, "Well, there's those houses over there."
She is a pretty woman, dressed like a farmer. As I stand on my side
of the fence, the fellow with me also walks up to the fence. The
woman stands on the other side of the fence and stares at the
fellow, obviously attracted to him. I move back out of the way as
the woman moves closer to the other fellow. She brings her face
close to his and begins kissing him right in front of me. I feel
left out and rejected since the woman has clearly picked the other
fellow over me even though he does not seem interested in her. He
seems to be simply taking her kissing him in stride, as if this kind
of incident sometimes happens to him because he is so good looking.
They continue kissing for perhaps thirty seconds until she backs off
and begins walking across a little field toward a small, dark
farmhouse behind her where some other people are standing outside.
The other fellow and I continue walking on our journey toward West
Commentary of 23 May 2021
I have noticed that a common theme that ties many of my dreams
together is that I am on a journey. I wonder if I am viewing my life
as essentially being a journey of some sort.
