Yeah, I know other people’s dreams are boring, but last night’s dream had an interesting point. I’ll share it here with some disclaimers.
- First disclaimer. This dream took place at the Rescue Mission where I work, but none of the people were the same. And none of the views in this dream are endorsed by Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission.
- Though a politician appears in this dream, it is a dream version of this individual and should not be taken as an endorsement or attack on his character.
- This dream is not meant to disparage frozen desserts. We, in fact, endorse such edibles in most circumstances.
So, on to the dream:
I was leading a discussion with a group of homeless men about what led them to be in their current situation. Sitting in on our conversation was a former President of the United States, William Jefferson Clinton (along with some members of the Secret Service). As is the way with dreams, no one found this peculiar.
One of the men in the group began to rant about the government and how no one in office cares about them at all. Those in office would be just as happy if everyone on the street overdosed and died. This led to an awkward moment as everyone realized a former officeholder was present, which led to much staring at the ground.
Then former President Clinton stood up and said, “I could use some ice cream. Would anyone else like ice cream?” And he proceeded to scoop ice cream cones for all the men.
I don’t think there’s a lot of meaning in this dream, except this: I think the instinct of most politicians is to avoid discussion of serious issues which might involve hard work and serious choices. Also, ice cream is yummy.Published in
