Frustrating dreams--

A hundred times, I've been having an interesting dream, and then realized, "wait, I'm dreaming!" and woke up.

Once, just once, I managed to stay asleep and do the "lucid dreaming" thing, where I could steer the course of the dream and be an active character. Maybe I was just too tired to wake up that day.

This morning, though, I dreamed that I was having a lucid dream. It may have been about Photoshop.

I think that the moment that I realized that dreams were kinda neat and creative and WANTED to dream about stuff, the dream sprits (or dreamiyon particles, depending on what side of the fence you're from) went 'Oh SHIT! Work!!' and fled until they could figure out a way to not get sucked into that.

... and then the lens flares and sepia tones came rolling in?

I need to start doing lucid dreaming exercises again. I've been able to manage lucidity a few times, and it's just plain cool.

I've had a few lucid dreams, but my desires in the dream world are greatly different from my actual desires. *sigh* I do get the same thing you do though, and I am blessed with the ability to "jump" out of most nightmares.

The sad thing is when your only lucid dream is you realizing just before the critical moment that it is a dream and about to be a rather . . . . moist dream. Apparently I looked very happy to my tentmate, who woke to some rather . . . . . happy sounds.

Well, that would be the logical path for a lucid dream. The one time I've managed it, it boiled down to a few minutes of "oh, this is interesting," like if you'd gotten a virtual reality rig and were just fascinated by moving your arms around and looking at your computer representation. No sex. Grumble.
