...And You May Find Yourself in a Beautiful House..
David Byrne and the Talking Heads made quite a few lyrical references to houses, including that snippet from "Once in A Lifetime." (Another classic, "Burning Down the House," apparently was about living in Los Angeles. Let's hope that tropical storm heading toward Mexico veers north and saves them.)
Well, according to a story by Sarah Kershaw in the New York Times, you may find yourself in a beautiful house while you're fast asleep. It's a fascinating piece about the sometimes pleasant, sometimes unsettling dreams people have about their homes.
I recall a vivid dream I had--more than once--while in the middle of building a home addition. In my dream I found a new door in our unremodeled home, opened it, and discovered a great big room that I hadn't known was there. Why remodel with all that unfinished space? After the work was done, the dream went away. An architect friend of mine told me he's had a very similar dream while in the throes of remodeling.
Do you ever dream about your home? And if you do, what do you think the dreams mean?
