Dream Date April 20, 2007

I am helping my mother hang some of the old clothes from my childhood out on the lawn, because she is having a yard sale. I say, "I'm 28 years old and my mom is just now selling my old clothes."

A man comes and sits down at a chair at a table that is outside. He says that he used to live in the house across the street and that he remembers me. He pinches my cheek.

Your clothes are very revealing. I'm sorry I mean your dreams.
Maybe this means you are finally giving up your childish or childlike personalities, traits, fas~ade. But why do you still need your mother's help to do this? And she has no right to exploit or reveal them.

And maybe you have to part with your memories as well. You have to make the decision. The table suggest this. And the house across the street could mean a kindred spirit.

Not very imaginative today.

Do you feel a sense of freedom in letting go of some of your past with the old clothes?

Maybe it's your mother whose having trouble letting go of you and it manifests itself in YOUR dreams. I find that if you keep a consistent dream journal, the clues will reveal themselves.

I like anonymous's interpetation, could very well be that you are now ready to give up the past, the old man could represent wisdom and the pinch on the cheek an afirmation that you are doing the right thing.

Anonymous, this dream could be very indicative of personal change, so you may be right. A lot has been going on in that particular department, lately. :) I'd say it's all for the better, and mostly I've felt that I've matured greatly in a very short amount of time

Leighton, I do. It's mostly a sense of relief. It's like I'm shedding my skin and coming out renewed.

Alexys, it might be true. My mother often complains of the empty nest syndrome, even though her nest has been empty for a couple years now.

Very nice interpretation, Mark. Clearly, change is present. :)
