So I have a lot of dreams about houses, usually big ones. But my favorite house dream is where I keep finding new rooms, all this space I had no idea I had. I had such a dream the other night.
In my dream, Leif had gotten the blueprints to our house from an unnamed uncle. He went upstairs and came down shortly, saying, “Can you come upstairs a minute?” I went upstairs, and inbetween Leif’s studio and the guest room was a door I had never noticed before. It opened into another room like the studio, except there was a crib. But there were huge cracks in the floor, and I thought I would never put a baby in this room, it would fall through the cracks!
I noticed off this room was a doorway to the right. I went through into this beautiful open space that had a line of windows on one side. I realized we were on the third floor and there was long porch outside, and snow was falling. I decided immediately that this would be our new bedroom. I looked to another wall, and there was a staircase going down. It led into a gymnasium, and I was so excited to have such a large dance/yoga space. I thought No wonder our heating bills went up, all this time we’ve been heating these extra rooms.
The funny thing about it is I was so deliriously happy to find all these rooms. Everything was filled with sunny light and I was full of joy. Then of course I woke up to find my house had not changed.
