Answer for question 4400.

Have you ever had a recurring dream? If so, what happened in it? Do you still have that dream now, or were you able to finally shake it?
My dreams have always involved stress, anxiety and fear. In one common variation, i and another person, probably female and depending on me, were fleeing from an unidentified terror, these dreams were never resolved and occurred throughout my thirties and forties. Then they stopped. A second recurring theme (through my seventies) involved going to an unidentified school in the midwest either as a new student or anew instructor. The buildings had some characteristics of colleges i was familiar with in real life, but the buildings all had an Escher-like quality and changed their structure each time i entered or left. I could never figure out the schedule of classes and could never get to the places i was supposed to be. As a student my grades were far worse than in real life. Only once, the last time, was the dream ended with any sort of finality or resolution.

I'm curious if yours is the same school as the one I still dream of. I too, have a lot of trouble reaching my destination. There is an elevator with unlabeled buttons, taking you to unnumbered floors; With random gaps in front of some doors. Balconies become cliffs, windows frame walls before one is truly ready to see into them.

I still go to this school at least 4 times per week.

I have attended schools in Tacoma and Seattle, WA, Carlinville, IL, and Denver, CO. I taught in Boise, ID. The schools in my dreams sometimes resemble a bizzaro version of the school in Boise, but it is usually in undesignated midwestern small town, and under construction. Stairways bypass some floors, so it is never certain where one will wind up if one starts up or down a flight. Other people seem to find their ways around just fine. Not me!

I am grateful I hardly ever remember my dreams. I know they are about anxiety producing situations but I can never recall the details.

I am not a Freudian nor an aborigine, so i attach no particular significance to my dreams. It is interesting that i remember mine, but not especially meaningful.

Didyou ever dream that you were going up and down on a staircase at the same time?

No, but i understood that sometimes i would have to move to a higher floor in order to get to a lower floor, or vice versa.
