myrtI have several recurring dreams but one of the most traumatic has been my beach dreams. Prior to my vacation I would frequently dream about going to the beach but never being able to set foot on the sand or touch the ocean. The only theme that recurred in this dream set is my inability to get to shore. What prevents me from getting there is always something different, something new.
The obstacles range from abductions, distractions, fight scenes, you name it! My imagination tends to get out of hand. The more frustrated I become in my dream about not being able to set foot on the beach the weirder the obstacle becomes. At the end of the dream I would always return home overwhelmed with the feeling of disappointment.
I would wake up the next morning yearning for the ocean; for me the ocean is a Siren attempting to draw me in. It offers a peace that I can find nowhere else; when I’m at the beach a feel completely serene. It’s an everlasting Prozac without the toxic side effects. I suppose my subconscious felt like it was an unreachable financial goal for me to make it back to the ocean. So my subconscious tormented me night after night with its ridiculous attempts to remind me on how badly I missed the ocean.
Out of nowhere last night I had a beach dream but this time it was entirely different. The ocean came to me! I was in a stairwell and the ocean rose and flooded the mainland. In this dream I actually had to try to intentionally get away from the ocean instead of fighting to get to it. So what is my subconscious trying to tell me now? Do I need to stop overindulging myself? I don’t know, I’m not much for dream interpretation but I thought this was a nice spin on my recurring dream.
While I was on vacation I made sure to wake up early every morning to watch the sunrise. It was my favorite part of everyday. Each morning the sunrise was slightly different from the day before. Here’s some GIFS I made of my sunrise pictures; to view the sunrise just click on the image below. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
