Dreams Created

I have never seen the Northern Lights.

Until last night.

And even then, I only saw them in my dreams.

Bizarre really.  I don’t have vivid dreams and I don’t always remember my dreams.  Yesterday a friend had posted that we wouldn’t be able to see the Northern Lights because of cloud coverage in our area.   I thought to myself that’s a bummer.   Even though prior to seeing that post I hadn’t paid a bit of attention to the fact that the Northern Lights were playing their magnificent beauty for the world.   But being informed I couldn’t see them, caused a brief reaction of disappointment.

Until I went to sleep.  And they played out in my dreams.

I could tell you the entire dream but it would likely bore you.   Mostly because there is no way I could verbally paint for you what my mind created for me to enjoy last night.   And I don’t want to lose the power of what I saw by trying to explain to you how the village on water, with the hodge podge of beautiful homes, large and very tiny, tied in to the huge city buildings.   And how the lights played on the world for just me.

But I woke this morning wondering…..what is it people will tell me I can’t have today….that I might just have a hidden power to create for myself.

I’m eager to find out.

  1. Colleen, you have done it again. You have supper impressed me. To take a simple conversation, and create a dream around it which allows you to live an event you would not have, is so cool. I rarely remember my dreams, and I don’t think i ever used my mind to present myself a reality I couldn’t achieve. Personality you could have shared the entire dream and I would have really enjoyed it. Take care, Bill


    • 🙂 Thanks Bill. I thought about writing the entire dream out. But I really don’t think I could have captured the vibrancy of it. Amazing what a little comment does to our psyche when we only pay a fraction of a second of attention to it.


  2. I love it when our nighttime dreams make up for our daytime deficits. I’ve seen the northern lights twice, once in MA when I was a kid, and late at night in Montana driving back from Glacier NO. They weren’t spectacular like the ones farther north (more of a green, undulating glow) but way cool nevertheless.


    • I just want to say “oooooooooooooooooo” when I think real eyes get to see the real thing. Can you imagine being at the very point on earth that this vision is at it’s greatest???

      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I can imagine it but I doubt my imagination comes close. 🙂
