zombies


Had a horrific dream this morning involving zombies. They were marauding through town in huge bands (a gaggle of geese, a murder of crows, a band of zombies. I believe that's the grouping class)creating mayhem. Initially, I was at our first "married" apartment, which actually belonged to a work friend in the dream. (Interesting aside about this friend: she has two little boys almost exactly the same age as mine. Is this significant? I dont know!) We were in some sort of gated community which left the band of zombies outside but we could hear these horrible noises echoing through the entire apartment. Zombie Mayhem. I was never clear what the zombies were doing. Eating brains? (I just made the mistake of consulting with Gill Smoke about zombie activities and got a completely unsolicited "dungeons and dragons" explanation of zombies. Eating brains did come up though, so we will go with that...) It was horrific. Certain we were all going to die, I just waited through the night until about 4am. We then heard a news report that the zombies had started off from our local university and were heading down the express way in the other direction. Sunrise was coming and in the dream, zombies could not tolerate sun.

The next night found me at the home where I grew up. We had just eaten an elaborate dinner (the dream picked up after the meal) and my older brother was cleaning the kitchen (which NEVER happened). I was watching 60 minutes with my father enjoying some sort dream sense of karmic justice (about the kitchen cleaning) and a report came through that they were heading back. We attempted to lock everything but I had the sense of dread that the house was simply not zombie proof. It was extremely disturbing. I cant describe the dread. At that point, Norm (against his father's direct instructions and my pleadings the night before) came in to ask me what time I was getting up (he can't even tell time) and I woke up. I gave little Norm a big hug for getting me out of there. Yet, the whole dream made me realize that my own house is definitely not zombie proof. Not a good feeling at all....

I have horrific dreams about zombies from time to time too. Particularly when I'm financially stressed. They seem to represent problems that "won't die". The more zombies, the more overwhelming the problem.

And the funeral might've been a contributing factor too.

Wow, Gretty. Thats AWESOME. I totally didnt make that connection. Both the problems that "won't die" and the funeral. Strangely, after I woke up this morning I was thinking about last night and thinking about all of us (in a good way!) Ive heard talk that there may be an intervention about my financial problems. I have a feeling that you may be asked to get involved....just don't let them make me think its a surprise party (hehehe).

I don't have any great insight into your dream (which is ok, since you already got some here), but this made me laugh. :)
