Lately, I keep returning to the same places

in my dreams, or at least it feels like I am. As far as my conscious self is concerned, these places are non-existent, or rather, to my own knowledge, I have never visited them while awake. It’s a strange feeling. It almost makes me feel like dreams are more than just unconscious thoughts. Last night, I found myself in the middle of a town-square-like place that felt and looked as if it might be somewhere in Europe; cobblestone streets, old Victorian era architecture. The feeling of familiarity with this town didn’t come from feeling as though I had dreamed of it before, and I don’t believe that I have, but as though I had actually been there several times in the past. I knew this because I was standing on a street corner, the town was this messy entanglement of streets and intersections, and while I don’t remember what I was doing or where I was trying to go, I knew my way around and never had to second guess how to get where I was going.

I also had a similar experience with a dream from a few nights back, where I visited a record store with some of my friends. Again, I don’t have any solid memory of ever dreaming of this particular record store, but after walking inside, a complete sense of recognition and familiarity swept over me. I knew exactly where everything was because I had been there before.

I have no idea what to make of either experience, but I hope I have more dreams like these because they are blowing my mind.

Okay, so I love it when I have a weird dream but I know exactly what influenced it. This commercial was the last thing I saw on TV before I fell asleep last night. Needless to say, I had a dream that my non-existent cat had kittens, like, a lot of kittens and they were just the cutest things ever. There were also little baby piglets running around (just like the ones in the commercial, but without pajamas). I mostly just remember playing with kittens though. Anyway, the results of all of this are that I REALLY want a kitten! And maybe a baby pig too!
