Back to Normal….I hope

No dreams. Is that true? Or is that what I want to believe and what I want to tell my family? Nah, no dreams honest. I took a couple of diazepam and managed a pretty good nights sleep. Emma seems to be a bit more chilled about stuff today. She didn’t watch the new Ricky Gervais/Karl Pilkington thing last night so we can catch up with that later. The kids, three out of four anyway, were fine this morning as well, resilient little buggers.

I’ve had a chance to really think about my recurring blue chicken dreams, I’ve even subscribed to a dream analysis blog. They had the following to say on dreams:

We always attempt in finding out what dreams mean because there may be an underlying message behind it. Here are the other types of dreams experienced by people:
•    Recurring dreams: This repetitive kind of dreams somewhat delivers a message to the person’s conscious mind that enhances well being and happening, should once chooses to go for this. Basically, the message is transmitted continuously until the dreamer gets the meaning.
•    Prophetic-like dreams: Dreaming of a higher being or loved one makes the dreamer realize that a lot of people do care about his or her existence in the world.
•    Desire Dreams: These dreams reflect what the desires of the heart and soul. Dreaming of wealth, well-being and a better life do always exist in the dreams because these are feel-good goals.
Finding out what these dreams mean always ends up with the dreamer and how he or she interprets the images seen during sleep.

The first of these is obviously my particular blue chickened problem and, as it states, is attempting to deliver a message to my conscious mind, continually until I get the meaning. Not tremendously helpful as my real issue is not understanding what the message may be. No that’s not strictly true, I can’t even begin to think about what may lie behind any possible interpretation of the continual appearance of a blue chicken in my dreams.

Ok, let’s think about this logically; a blue chicken, OR a chicken that is blue. I Googled the term (can’t believe that ‘Googled’ is now an accepted word) and the top ten were (after a bunch of images of blue chickens):

Nothing rings a bell particularly or even strikes a minor chord, please feel free to follow the links and offer suggestions. There are alternative interpretations, a blue (as in pornographic) chicken. What a horrendous thought. Puts me in mind of that poor Spanish bloke (another irrelevant Google search straying from my focus)

This appears to be true!!!

A thought occurs; films, books etc. Search for general media!!

No movies, TV or radio. Books now that’s a different matter. A Blue Peter book about chickens but, and here’s a hope:

The Case of The Blue Chicken (A Sam Wallace book) by Jim Nelson. I’m going to check this out.

More tomorrow.
