I had yet another nightmare about a tornado last night. Makes it the third one in a week.

I have no idea why I'm terrified of them, it's not like they're a regular occurrence around here.


Oh well, just thought I'd share that with you all.

Ooooh, Nettie!

I have had recurring tornado nightmares my entire life!

The worst one was where they were fire tornados, eek.

Oddly enough, I had them more when I was living in areas that didn't really get them. Now I live in area that does but I don't have them as much.

I can definately sympathize though, they are terrible dreams.

I always seem to be running desperately away from them as they loom ever closer.

And in the ones I've been having lately I'm with my family trying to get to a shelter and Christian won't come with us, saying he'll be along soon but we're really over-reacting. Nothing to worry about.

It scares the absolute crap out of me.

When I was younger we had one come near our house while I was staying with my grandparents (who lived right next door to us). My grandfather refused to come to the basement for shelter... decided to watch the whole thing from the front porch!!! It was surreal with the warning on the television and the sirens going off... I was very young and didn't really realize the danger until much later.

Ok, so that doesn't help you much Nettie, but believe me when I say that tornadoes aren't really interested in tormenting individuals... or sentient for that matter.

Go have your dream "interpreted" if you will... maybe they will fade away if you "understand" the message better?

I'm not one for 'interpreting' dreams Joe. I think it's a load of codswollop to be honest.

It's probably just my mind sorting through it's insecurities. I like to feel in control of events and obviously a tornado is as far from my control as anything. Also I worry that Christian doesn't worry enough so I have to worry for him and honestly it would be just the thing that Christian would do - shrugging off the danger and saying I'm over-reacting.

Actually, I did look tornado up in an online dream dictionary. You're pretty much on the mark as to what the "experts" think it means, Nettie.

MadCarlotta said...

Yeah, Smerk is right Nettie, if you went for Jungian analysis, that's pretty much what they would tell you.

See... your friends sought out the interpretation although you already had a pretty good grasp of the idea anyhow.
