My boyfriend used to work very early mornings as a van driver, and his getting out of bed woke me momentarily. When I am awakened and then go back to
sleep, I consequently have very lucid dreams.
One morning, after Pete had left for work I had a very vivid dream I was doodling on a piece of polystyrene with a biro pen. Dull subject for a dream
- until I was woken by the sound of my mobile phone ringing.
It was Pete, ringing me from a job. As it was such a strangely dull dream, I told him about it. He was quiet for a moment, and then explained that
literally just before he had phoned me, he had been absent-mindedly doodling on the polystyrene packaging that the washing machines he was delivering
were packed in- with a biro.
Too much of a coincidence? Maybe there is something to learn from this about what dreams actually are.
