Last night, at time of writing, I had the most perplexing dream. I missed the boat! Not once but 3 times! Strange but true! I woke wondering what it all meant. I often have really visual dreams, my subconscious trying to find its way through all that murkiness, like a fish swimming through weed, where is the coral? Lol.
Not only did I miss the boat, I missed it 3 times!! I was in Rottnest Island, a quaint place just offshore 20km from Perth. I was planning to get the morning ferry, and quite literally as I went to step onto the ferry, it moved away from the shore and left. I missed the boat.
I was quite upset about this, and flustered. I remember thinking it was quite odd. I then scurried around trying to book the next boat. After an hour or so, and some adventure, I realised this one was fully booked, we were too late to get the tickets, I was going to miss this one too. Finally there was an evening boat which was a guarantee, according to the boat guy. I am not sure if I even made that one to be honest, as I woke up by this point! But seriously!? How could I have missed all those boats?
The most obvious answer or interpretation perhaps is a missed opportunity. But nothing seems obvious. Have I missed the boat on marriage, kids and house buying? Maybe these are the deeper fears? Who knows! I dare say I don’t think I have missed this trifecta just yet, life continues to surprise me the older I get and who knows what could be around the corner?
What perplexing dreams have you had lately?
Feel free to interpret!
Yours in crazy dreams!
