Just asking for a little help.
Trying to figure out the significnace of a dream I had last night (morning of Feb. 23, 2012).
The content of the dream itself was rather mundane; I was volunteering my time to a group I've worked with in the past, tasked with cleaning out a
video camera bag (I am not
a videographer or a photographer in any way).
I finished the task, and reported my progress to the person in charge of the group at the time; a person I had not meet before, and who, I understood
to be "second-in-command" to the true leader of the organization, and a long-time friend, hence my association.
Not being familiar with "Number 2", I asked his name.
He replied, "Nike".
Thinking that I had mis-heard him I clarified, "Mickey?"
To which he corrected me by repeating "Nike".
Which, having some familiarity with mythology, I thought was an odd name, at least for modern times.
He was a young man, early to mid-twenties, slight but fit build, about 6 feet tall, fair to medium complexion with short, wavy reddish-blond hair and
light brown eyes, clean-shaven, no glasses.
He wore a white(-ish) shirt (unsure if it was patterned or not), long sleeves, un-buttoned, and faded blue jeans with a medium brown belt belt.
I was a bit put off by him at first sight, I got the impression that he was a capable second in command, good leadership qualities and all; but maybe
a bit of a "jock"-ish attitude and not someone who would be easily capable of creative or non-linear thought on his own.
A Soldier, not a General.
He thanked me, checked the bag and agreed that source of the stench coming from the bag, as I had discovered and reported, was a couple of damp, and
now mildewed, bath towels.
There the dream ended.
My quandry is this:
I immediately recognized the character's name from mythology, even though I was not familiar with the mythological character, per se
apparantly considered a "lesser" goddess by the experts).
And, in researching the reference further, I discovered that Nike was a Greek goddess
, so the depiction of Nike as a 20-something
in my dream is a bit confusing.
And then, of course, there's the fact that self-identifying Greek gods/goddesses have never troubled themselves to visit me in my dreams before!
Your thoughts would be much appreciated!
