    My wife and I have been talking about dreams as of late and we both seem to have very different dream life's when we sleep. My wife thinks that my dreams that include cartoon characters Like scooby doo or science fiction characters like captain kirk or spock are very unusual. So I am curious am i the only one who remembers dreams from time to time and does any one else dream of fictional characters or some thing from the movies or TV? If not what do you dream of? As for me lately I have been dreaming of group counselling sessions with Albert Eisenstein as the therapist and gilligan, Eric Estrada, William Shatner, Gary Coleman and my self as the group. although the group and councilor can very in the four nights I had this dream.
    So what do all of you think? Are dreams one of those taboo topics that no one should speak about or is it ok to dream about Scooby Doo and Shaggy to. Any help would be appreciated.

    dreams are just the mind's way of dealing with the day. sometimes dreams have meaning, and sometimes they don't. i rarely remember my dreams. most times the characters in my dreams are people i don't know and i don't see their faces. someone interpret that one for me. he he he

    Slik_kitty I feel the same way about the mind dealing with day concerning the dreams. In the past when I have been dealing with a tough problem and it is starting to stress me out some times my dreams will point me in the right direction. On more than one occasion the fictional character Spock from Star Trek will counsel me on my problems. For any one who knows start trek you will probably laugh when I say he tells me to do the logical thing and try control my emotions.
    So thanks Slik_kitty I like your response.
