What Dreams May Come -- and come -- and come

Today on Facebook a friend was posting about the "teaching dreams" he's having.  We all have them -- mine is that I'm standing in front of a class full of students who are talking and laughing and surfing the net, not paying any attention whatsoever to me. I'm up in front saying "um, hello -- " and no one even looks at me.  The teacher anxiety dreams come to everyone -- any teachers out there?

Another one I have is obviously a frustration dream -- I'm trying to get somewhere, usually to an airport, and I cannot get out of the house.  I can't find my passport or tickets, my check-off list is not working at all, and the clock is ticking closer and closer to the time the plane takes off or the cruise heads out to sea.  What's really frustrating is that I *never* get to where I have to go.  Had this one the other night . . . 

 The dahlias will come to an end soon, I promise.

I have another one but it's not appropriate for a family-friendly blog :)

Do you have recurring dreams?  What do you think they mean -- why do you keep dreaming whatever it is over and over?

every now and then i get stuck into a dreaming pattern - i have 'school' dreams where i'm a student. supposedly when you dream of school, life has a lesson for you to learn and you're not paying attention. who knows...

Before a new semester starts I always dream that I cannot find my classroom...I am late...the students are either gone or I have forgotten all my lecture material ;). I always use this example when I get to the 'dream' section of our class material. Love the processing of the flowers...so soft and lovely.

I don't care if the dahlias NEVER end! :)
When I was younger, I had recurring dreams, not so much anymore.

I'm not a teacher, but I do trainings for adults at work, and, sadly, I don't need the dream as this often happens to me in real life :( your photo is dreamy, though :)

I don't often have recurring dreams, but when I do they are usually frustration dreams. Usually people I know don't recognize me and I keep chasing them.
