The Dream Blog.

I've never done that blogging thing before, nor will I make a habit of it.
Recently I decided to record any dreams that I have (not many), and I figured that a blog would be an interesting way of doing it. The dream threads we have had in the past have all been buried. It will probably prove to be no different here.
These dreams are not necessarily interesting or entertaining. They are just the ones that I recall.
Date: The morning of 18th July. (aka the night of 17th July, etc).
I saw ancient Greek tripods on a sea bed at the bottom of the ocean. It was presumably part of some sort of wreck.
That's essentially all it was visually, but I 'knew' in my dream that they were the automated self-moving tripods of Hephaestus described by Homer.
I guess I was hovering over the tripods and looking down on them, but I had no sense of my body or my existence.
But my recollection of the dream would undoubtedly have been damaged. When I woke I only recognised that the dream had happened for a fleeting second or two, and then my waking mind wandered to how cool Hephaestus is, etc, etc. Then the day began.
Only later by chance whilst reading for uni, and accidentally turning to the wrong page (an image of an ancient Greek tripod), was the dream brought back to my memory and I was able to write it down.
Thoughts / Interpretations:
Nothing really amazing or exciting there.
I guess the origin of the material has been in my thinking about Hephaestus' tripods recently as I was making brief plans to use the character in my own fiction (fiction which will possibly never go beyond the idea stage).
I'd also recently (a week or so ago) had a discussion about underwater archaeology and ship wrecks with someone.
My mind was likely continuing these thoughts, so I do not think that there would be any interpretation required. There is material there for a deep interpretation, but it is late.
Feel free to use this blog space to record your own dreams, comment on the dreams of other people, interpret the dreams of other people, or whatever. It's just a bit of fun, but I am fascinated by dreams.0 Thanks, 0 Likes
