dreams

Today I woke up pretty late, around threeish and I went upstairs to wake up Missy so that we could have our usual morning gossip session. After all the stories were heard we got to talking about the dreams we had last night. It seems that every night I go to bed I have extremely vivid dreams the next morning that always seem so true. I want to start a dream notebook or something so that I can keep track of them or something but am of course too lazy to do such a thing. But anyways, this is what I wanted to blog about today. When we go to sleep are our minds really at rest? It doesn’t seem that way at all; not when you can go to bed after being up for hours on end and then have a dream that totally recaps your day and night. This dream, however, includes different people and different endings that can either be exciting or really terrible and can you into trouble when the gossip session comes the next day since you really don’t know what was a dream and what wasn’t. If our minds are that busy at night then what is even the point of sleeping? When I woke up today at three, I felt as if I had been up all night and I got a good 9 hours of sleep. How do we know that when we are sleeping and dreaming we aren’t actually living and that when we are living it isn’t really a dream? I know that this probably doesn’t make a bit of sense but it is something that I have been thinking about quite often recently since I have been having such long and realistic dreams.
