Dreamland Transportation

Lately I’ve been hav­ing many dreams in­volv­ing var­i­ous forms of trans­porta­tion and how they fail me. A fre­quent one has me in a tiny boat that keeps get­ting swamped from rough wa­ter, leav­ing me strand­ed in the mid­dle of a lake; an­oth­er has me try­ing to get my un­wieldy bike down a steep and nar­row stair­case, with no rail­ing or walls, a fall would mean cer­tain in­jury.

I’m guess­ing these dreams are sub­con­scious at­tempts to deal with my fears of main­tain­ing a strong fam­i­ly and be­ing a good fa­ther. It isn’t an easy task, and I’m not con­fi­dent that I have a com­plete grasp on what it en­tails. Thus, the lack of con­trol over my var­i­ous forms of trans­porta­tion.

The dreams could al­so re­flect a sim­i­lar stres­sor at work, with my cur­rent work­load. I like be­ing busy, but two de­sign­ers and near­ly 70 sites to maintain/​convert is a pret­ty hairy recipe. Thankfully we’re get­ting the de­sign­er I re­placed back in mid-May.

I sup­pose the dreams don’t need to have spe­cif­ic caus­es pinned to them; al­though it seems fair­ly clear to me that I’m feel­ing a dis­tinct lack of con­trol over my life; and for those who know me, they know I like to be in con­trol.
