crossposted to dreamers_online... symbolism, anyone?

i woke up this morning from a dream.

i dreamed that i woke up tangled in my sheets with a cricket in my right hand, a spider on my hip, and a grub worm at my feet.

now if THAT isn't symbolism....

(I should have been a cynical writer)

that's whats been bugging me all freaking day(s)....

i used to be so freaking good at dream interpretation, but now?

and the book i normally use for it had nothing on worms or crickets (or grasshoppers for that matter.. i remember calling it a grasshopper in my dream, but it looked like a cricket.), and just said something about the spider being symbolic of a smothering motherly presence.

I have a 19th century book called "The Royal Imperial Dream Book" and it has no entries for spiders or crickets or their significance but there is one for "worms", read it at your own caution:

"To dream that you see a great number of worms in your path, is an indication that the death either of yourself or some one dear to you, may shortly be expected. For a young woman to dream that she has trod upon a worm that was crawling in her path, signifies that the engagement between her and her lover will be in danger of being broken off through the machinations of a jealous rival, but eventually a reconiliation will be accomplished."

The book is a gas to read otherwise when it not predicting your imminent demise or some romantic chicanery. Since the 19th century ended quite a while ago I don't think you are in any true danger, but I would watch out for those jealous rivals.

huh.

the only thing i could find in my interpretation books was the spider, symbolizing a smothering motherly force.

That's so symbolic!
You should write a cryptic song that sounds really cool and creepy but is really just based on the dream.

You sure you didn't just wake up outside and not notice?
