Nope, my husband swears he doesn't dream. Ever. Never mind that the man speaks in his sleep, or tosses and turns as if something violent is happening. He doesn't recall therefore it didn't occur. So it made me wonder if something was wrong with me and of course, I had to do some research. My findings?
Acording to a research conducted by David Watson, a professor of psychology in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, "People who are prone to daydreaming and fantasy have less of a barrier between states of sleep and wakefulness and seem to more easily pass between them."
In laymen terms, I recall because I believe what is not as easily acepted by others. My husband is one of those people who is grounded in reality. I, on the other hand, prefer to explore the realm of possibilities. Everday I wake with a different song in my head ( today was 'Red Solo Cup' by Toby Keith) and an intense emotion. My dreams inspire characters, shape scenes in my stories and make me think about things I would normally scoof at.
What are your dreams made of?
