I rarely have David-dreams but they happen now and again. The last huge one I had was more than 2 years ago about my desperation to wean off my ODD … or Die. (I believe I chose Death … the ODD kind, you know 😉 ) The subject of that traumatic dream was posted here some time ago.
But David wouldn’t stop haunting my dreams and I had another one recently. This time, it was not of a do-or-die nature. It seemed to have many symbolisms though and still a little weird. Excitement is gradually escalating for his return and my dream cells (yours too probably) are a little out of control and gone a little wonky. Let me share this weird dream with you.
I dreamed that David and I were old buddies. We sat down to play a game of chess. A relaxed and not very competitive session as we are both not very competitive people. 😉
Then he suddenly announced that he needed to go to the toilet. So he left.
After mucking about a bit, I felt my jeans were too tight. Before I could stand up to make some adjustments, Ed Sheeran appeared from nowhere.
David is in the loo, I said to him.
No, Ed replied. He is singing and banging on his piano now.
Oh let’s go listen to him, I suggested.
The piano was not down the hall, nor was it in the next room. It was at the peak of a mountain where the ground was covered by a carpet of lush green and fresh-looking grass which looked like it had been newly mowed, and dotted with leafy green trees, gently swaying. There were some gusty winds blowing as I climbed. Ed Sheeran had somehow disappeared. I had to trek up that mountain alone with my hair flapping about and tickling my nose. The mountain looked alot like this:
Then I spotted David, true to form, at his piano and belting out a song I did not recognise. His voice rang through the wind while I perched by the piano and listened.
Do you sing? He asked, still banging on the piano. (I know I can’t sing but does he have to know it?! Sadly, in the presence of this dude, you just don’t feel like you are able to lie, so I told him the truth)
Well … no … I replied.
“I can’t marry you then”. (Title of a new song?) He said matter-of-factly – while still banging on his piano.
I woke up with a start. Obviously, even my dream spirit was incapable of handling the shock of that out-of-the-blue statement. On retrospect, it was not the remark itself that brought about the trauma of embarrassement that woke me up. It was because that issue had never crossed my mind! How dare I ?!! Who wants to marry him anyway, I thought. I could be his Great Grand-aunt! Tut tut!
Many have maintained that
Dreams have their origin in real spiritual excitations
And are the outward manifestations of spiritual powers
Whose free movements have been hampered during the day

Since it is impossible to have a face-to-face consultation with Dr.Freud who I adore, I made a concerted effort to make an analysis myself, of the state of my mind these past weeks … months, to have dreamed a dream such as this –
The sudden appearance of Ed Sheeran must have owed to my having been watching The Voice where he was co-coach to Christine Aguilera – so no brainer and no blame on David.
David’s sudden departure from our chess game to go to the gents – could it symbolise his departure almost 2 years ago? (There is in no way that I am comparing one of the venues with the other, so do stay calm guys! 🙂 )
David playing his piano and singing on top of a remote mountain and my need to climb it to reach him – was probably about our inaccessibility to him the past umpteen months?
A song I did not recognise – I must have been desperately wanting new music from him?
The gusts of wind during my climb – could that be our anxiety for David’s future career facing obstacles?
The fresh green newly-mowed grass and the beautiful trees – could it be an indication of David’s new, refreshed career?
As for the “marrying” part haha, it was obviously brought about by reading so many recent archu-speculations whether he would be soon fulfilling the staunch wishes of his Church to quickly get married and start a family – “to be fruitful and multiply … to populate the earth abundantly and multiply it” 😉
As a mummy-archie, I have been harbouring fears that David might marry the “wrong” girl one day; someone who might bully him and take advantage of his sweet nature. Anyway, who am I (or us) to have any say or control over a situation which is not our dang business. But worry, I’m sure we will – From Archies With Love, David!!
As for my jeans being too tight – no brainer! We should all know where THAT came from! 😉
