Lately, my dreams have been very vivid. Looking back, in my daily journal, it seems that in November this is a common burden.
Last night’s dream was the strangest one yet. I was in a group, that was traveling to a conference. We were discussing the ramifications of climate change. In the group, of unfamiliar faces was one celebrity, Mr. Brad Pitt. I can’t ever remember dreaming of celebrities, and I don’t follow the celebrity culture, so this was a surprise. When we arrived to the conference hall the meeting room was dark and empty. Someone suggested that we renovate my home as an example of how an urban dwelling can exist as a”green” alternative, an “off the grid compromise” .
Mr. Pitt lead the design team. When they were finished the house was completely unrecognizable. The second floor washroom was floating between the first and second floor within a mezzanine floor plan. It was an open space with no walls or windows. It contained a waterless toilet, shower and sink.
I remember turning to Mr Pitt and asking,”Why did you change the washroom location?” The idea of a waterless system made sense in my dream. A team member replied,” By relocating the washroom, we were able to add a Flying Pad.”
I asked,”What’s a Flying Pad?”
Mr Pitt replied,” It’s a landing pad for your flying car. Everyone will have one next year.”
That”s when I woke up. My mind was trying to wrap around the idea of a wall-less bathroom, flying cars and Mr. Brad Pitt, the futuristic renovator.
What was this dream about? I looked up the following from an online dream book:
1)Dreams about celebrities:
“To see a celebrity in your dream represents your beliefs and understanding about her or him. Consider what the celebrity is famous or known for and how you relate to that quality. Something in you waking life has triggered these similar beliefs and feelings. It is not uncommon that your obsession with a certain celebrity may carry over onto your dream world. Celebrities are often seen as heroes and all that is mighty. Also consider any puns within the name.”
Did this mean, the name “Pitt” could be synonymous with, our house is a “money pit”?
2)Dreams about renovations:
“To dream that you are renovating indicates that you are looking at life from a new perspective. Your old ideas or habits are being replaced by new ways of looking at the world. Alternatively, the dream suggests that you have triumph over much adversity. “
I have to think about this interpretation.
True, we have a pending decision about renovating the second floor bathroom with other small fixes waiting to be started. Was this an anxiety dream? Probably. And most of all, if you install a waterless toilet, do you need a toilet paper roll holder?
