Dear Dream,

How have you been? Long time. I have been sleeping well lately.

You know what I wrote about chasing dreams. I will keep this one short.

I thought I will take this opportunity to thank you for changing your shift from night to day. Because, Day-dreaming is so much better than nightmares for both health and creativity.

Keep it up and don’t look back.

  1. I can attest to how negative nightmares are for daywalking hours, you never feel rested.

  2. I could help but look up what ‘chasing a thief’ dream may mean. I’m sure you must have researched the hell out of it.

    As a young person I had a recurring dream of trying to run away but feeling I was stuck in some mud, unable to move fast. This brought about even more frustration in the dream because in reality I was quite a good 100 metre runner at school. I think my dream is quite common and linked to some type of anxiety.

    “The thief in your dreams may be a fear that you are being taken advantage of, or you are being manipulated. … Feelings that you may have encountered during a thief dream may be: Loss, bound, stealthy, pursuit, fear, manipulated, overwhelmed, robbed”.

  3. Thanks for the research. I didn’t do much of a research because it was so sporadic and I used to think it was an influence of a heist movie that I may have watched. From your description, pursuit stealthy, fear and overwhelmed may have been the cause. These days with an infant at home, I am usually knackered by the time I sleep. So resting well 🙂

    And I used to have that dream as a kid as well. I often catch myself in the dream where I am chasing or running away in full speed, my legs doing the movement but still I will not move an inch. If it’s common, then probably treadmill was born out of a dream
