In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Nightmares.”
Describe the last nightmare you remember having. What do you think it meant?
I cannot recollect the last time I had a nightmare before or since I retired. There are instances in my waking life that seemed like nightmares I wanted to wake from.
My years as a parent of teenagers at times was like a nightmare. I know parents who still require therapy for several waking nightmarish traumatic events when their now adult children were teenagers.
I have friends who experienced real nightmares with the death of family, the infidelity of a loved one, and the diagnosis of an illness, all of which they wished was a nightmare.
At this time in my life, my nightmare would be awakening from a deep sleep to see myself at my work desk.
With that last thought, its time for something stronger than coffee.
