Silly Dreams of Shakespearean origin

We all have dreams from time to time. Some are dramatic and perhaps disturbing, whilst others are easily forgotten or not remembered at all when we wake up.
Have you ever dreamt that you were a chicken wearing a pin striped suit to work and they would not let you in because your tie was the wrong color?

Or dreamt that you went to see a hypnotist to cure you of the compulsion to visit hypnotists?

Whilst at the hypnotist you asked him also to cure you of your fear of heights? He did so; and when you woke up you were on top of the cupboard?

No? Never had such dreams?

Well, neither have I.

My dreams tend to be memorable. Last week I dreamt that I was in a marshmallow factory, a bit like in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory book by Roald Dahl.

Anyway ... I dreamt I was in a marshmallow factory and when I woke up I'd eaten the pillow.

I remember being told off in the morning for ruining the pillow!

The best dreams of course are those that inspire us to greater things. They can be dreams we have when asleep or indeed something we think about when awake and mull over in our minds and spur us into action.

Many a great idea started with a day dream, an inspiration, a word of encouragement ...

The ideal dream is to make life better for someone else. It need not necessarily be a big thing that you do. Perhaps a kindness to someone. A smile. A helping hand.

For when our time is at an end, we should not be remembered for who we have been, but for what we have done.


  1. I know I dream, but I'll be darned if I can ever remember them...perhaps I'm no meant to remember them!!!

    1. That's right Cathy. Sometimes we're not meant to remember our dreams.

      I dreamt the other day that I was at a meeting in my office. When I woke up I found that I was ...

      God bless.

  2. I can never remember my dreams either. But I also day dream. And it was a day dream that helped me find healing and the courage to help others. God works through all kinds of dreams eh?

    1. That's true Colleen. God uses our dreams, day dreams too, to guide us along the road of our lives. I've known this to happen often.

      God bless you.

  3. No, I can't say that I ever dreamt that I was a chicken wearing a pin striped suit. But then again I don't wear suits. Chicken in a dress? Yes.

    Do you ever have those strange flying dreams? Or the ones where you take a bite of something and all your teeth crumble?

    You have a way with words, Victor :)

    1. Yes, Mary. Flying dreams, or dreams that we are falling from a height, are quite common, I understand. I've not had a dream about crumbling teeth though.

      As you know, when in hospital I had some very strange dreams which I wrote about here.

      Thank you Mary for your kind words about my writing.

      God bless you.

  4. Yes, I remember those dreams - the life changing type! God bless you too!

    I responded to your little "poem" on my blog ;)



God bless you.
