I’m a lucid* dreamer. I have been for as long as I can remember. Even still, I’ll occasionally lose myself to vivid dreaming. These can be a bit scary for me because they seem so real, In the vivid dreams, I’m not sure if I’m awake or still dreaming. Good thing I don’t sleep walk. The strange part is waking up (for real, I think) at home and feeling like I’m not in my home. That woozy feeling of being displaced can last for a few hours.

Oh yes, and then there are the dreams within dreams where I wake up from one to find myself in another, then another and finally I awaken in the foreign location called home. Crazy, huh?

What are your thoughts on lucid or vivid dreaming? Have you ever awakened at home, but it felt like you woke up in the wrong place? Do you think it adds or takes away from being creative? Does it even matter?
