School dreams: retirement

I was on a busy school playground trying to find my classroom, but no one would help. It seemed like no one could see me. I was invisible. That describes my first retirement dream. Our minds are amazing in the way they put a number of unfinished thoughts into vivid brain videos that visualize and process those thoughts.

I take dreams seriously as there are typically nuggets of wisdom in dreams--another remarkable aspect of our minds. Often those vivid visualizations of unfinished thoughts point to the essence of those thoughts. The dream above clearly demonstrated that my place in life is a new place, not the old place. Pragmatists may say that's not surprising, but for someone like me that's always so curious about how the brain works, I think it's amazing.
