Odd pose cartoon.

I met someone sitting in an odd pose, when I was in a fast food restaurant. The young man was tired and stretched his legs out, resting them on a chair at the opposite end of his table. I know this is common at home, but seeing this in public, in a crowded restaurant, is something odd. Where has common manners gone? Imagine the amount of dirt and germs left on the seat of the chair used as a foot stool.

Yoga New Favorite Pose

Yoga’s new favorite pose for Generation Z.

I think this should be Yoga’s new favorite pose for Generation Z. Is this something we should be proud of?

This is a sarcastic (tongue-in-cheek) look at how many people are using technology in daily life. Picture done for drawing prompt below:

Tough decision (comics)

Kira’s Sunday Scribbles for Word of the Day challenge, reminded me of a comic I drew and posted recently. Its because Kira’s drawing showed the woman crying tears into a bucket.

She thinks about getting her period/ menstruation. She dreams about it.

She went to the pharmacy for a home pregnancy test kit.

What should she do about her test result?

She spoke to her boyfriend but he wasn’t going to help.

Faces of emotion and turmoil.

What happens when your body changes …

She had an announcing dream about the gender of her baby … its a boy!

Decision: Pro-life or pro-choice?

A young woman discovers she is pregnant. She tells her boyfriend, who refuses to be responsible. She has an ultrasound scan and … its a boy! She is undecided on her next course of action … or inaction. What do you think she should do?


Everyone’s Nightmare (comics)

Dreaming of being lost in a new place.

If you had a bad or threatening experience during the day, you may dream about it. This dream/ nightmare is about a woman who had traveled somewhere with her family and friends. Somehow, she got into a taxi by herself and became separated from her group. She used her smart phone to send a message to her partner to tell she was lost and asked for help.

Have you dreamed of getting lost in a strange, new location? What did you do?

I have a dream (picture)

I have a dream which confirms the theory that during sleep, the unconsciousness plays a theme that continues the day’s topic of concern.

Anxiety during the day continues in a dream.

The girl has a dream that her cell phone is damaged because she dropped it during the day. Her well-being and routine is disrupted by a damaged hand phone.

55 common dreams

Common themes in dreams.

(1) Who among us, has NOT dreamed of being chased? Please stand up. No one? That’s because dreaming of being pursued by human, animal, weather or un-natural elements, is a common dream theme.

(2) Sex is like one of the primary needs of mature adults. It is a common dream theme.

(3) Sometimes, when we are very sleepy, we close our eyes and suddenly, we feel like we are falling down from a height.

(4) Anxiety over academic studies, a company report, or anything of the nature of education,  is a common dream theme. The quest for paper chase creates anxieties. As day life spills over into dream life, the sleeper dreams of their studies and how they perform in them.

(5) Being late for an important appointment/ occasion, is commonly occurring in dreams. When there is fear/ anxiety in life, the sleeper continues this state of high tension. The dream of failing punctuality is a threat simulation that reflects the state of threat in real life.

(6) The dream of going to fall is due to threat and the simulation of falling to prepare the mind and body to face the consequences in waking life.

(7) When we are stressed, tensed and worried about a living person, our state of mental stress triggers a dream of the living person being dead. This dream shows a simulated threat on the person. It does’t mean that person may die. The dream isn’t likely to be a prophesy. Unless the subject is known to be suffering from a terminal illness, there is no logical basis to suppose that the dream is a prophesy.

(8) If you have tried practicing an art/ skill repeatedly during the day, you may dream about doing an action  repeatedly. You had a fear of failing, or fear of being unable to perform that act well. The dream is a simulation of threat, to send you the message on the difficulty of that art/ skill.

(9) Some people haave a fear of flying. Or they are uncomfortable with flying, but do not admit that. Some people dream that they have the ability to fly. Some psychologists explain that dreams could take fragments of childhood experiences, and replay the memories. So the adult may have the childhood memory of being lifted up in the air and swung around. That created the impression of flying and the memory is special. The brain may have retrieved the memory of flying, activated it, and made the brain see it in a dream.

10) This is a trick. As the sleeper is falling asleep, they feel being slowly detached from conscious. This detachment creates the subsequent feeling that there is a presence close by.

11) Dreaming of failing an exam is a simulation of threat. A staged scenario of a failure in any situation, is an expression of threat and risk.

12) The desire to possess an attractive partner is a wish. It is also the need to feel loved in return.

13) To be afraid and unable to move is a reminder of the possibility of threat.

14) A deceased person appears in a dream because of nostalgia for them. The memory of the dead is activated and replayed in the dream.

15) Dreams are often of childhood memories. The dreamer has self awareness of being inside the dream and since it is about a childhood memory, the dreamer thinks they have returned to being a child.

Common dream theme – being chased.

Dreaming of alive person being dead may be reflecting that subject’s state of poor health.

Common dream themes – attraction and frozen in fright.


55 common dreams Part 2.

Common dreams – swimming, insect, spider, scorpion.

Common dream theme – eating food.

16) Dream imagery of being attacked and killed, are about threats. The dreamer needs to think about the kind of threats they face in reality.

17) Swimming is a common theme because it depicts the struggle in life. Hardship is also a threat simulation.

18) Who, among us, is not afraid of insects and spiders? These are often poisonous and cause health threats.

19 and 20) Nudity or being inappropriately dressed, are threats.

21) Discovering a new room may be a figurative symbol for saying the dreamer found out something new.

22) Losing control of a vehicle is a situation that’s severe. The threat to safety  s an indication that all is not well.

23) Eating is a pleasure. However, over-eating causes obesity and other problems.

24) Fire is dangerous and a threat.

25) Being half-awake and paralyzed. This happens when the sleeper is in a lucid state and aware of what is happening.

26) Finding money is important because, hey, who doesn’t want money and more money?

27) Magic powers and 28) Supernatural abilities are similar.

29) Killing someone and 30) Being smothered are similar. These two speak of threats. The dreamer feels threatened and may defend/ attack themselves in acts of aggression. Being smothered is being harmed and is a threat to oneself.

31) Being confined and locked up is a threat.

Dream interpretation of yell: Dream meaning of yelling

Men scolded for boundary violations. Or a woman yelling.

What’s the dream meaning of yelling? What’s the dream interpretation of yelling?

Early one morning, I dreamed I heard yelling. It sounded like a man’s voice. He was very loud and unpleasant. Then I woke up.

To dream of yelling means something wants your attention. The noise aims to attract your focus. If you wake up immediately after the dream metaphor of yelling, it means the dream has accomplished its purpose.

Sometime, your internal body clock wishes to wake you up. It knows its time for you to wake up and arise from bed, because you have to start your day.

If you had a recent bad experience, and you think this dream symbol is related to it, the you might be having some lingering trauma. The nasty experience had embedded a “thorn”, which served as a reminder. Every day that you face a new nasty experience, it will trigger the old memory, to be replayed in a dream.

Other dream symbols that are similar to yelling are shout, shouting, screaming, and loud noises.

Dreaming of letting your hair down

If you always style your hair up, then a dream of letting your hair down, is unusual. Like the metaphor goes, to dream of letting your hair down, means to let loose and relax. If you had been stressed in your waking hours, then this might trigger a dream to tell you to relax and let your hair down.
