Dreaming About Online Friends

One of my online writer friends posted something on Facebook yesterday. I responded to his post and he then responded to my comment, and the conversation went on. This morning I awoke to this dream:

As I was walking down the street to my home (not at all where I currently live), I noticed a large thin box, dimensions that might have been 2 feet wide by 7 feet tall and 7 feet deep. What drew my attention to the box was the man inside the box, standing inside it with pillows and blankets, calling out to me as I passed his box to enter my home. He was obviously  living in the box.

I invited him to my home and he accepted.

Nothing weird about this dream, really. I probably would have invited him into my home anyway, and I didn’t think it was at all strange that he was living in a box. I know he has been homeless, so my imagination probably placed him in as comfortable a box as I could find for him.

But I found this dream both funny and comforting. Though I have never met him in person, I know I would feel comfortable in his presence.


  1. I like the symbolism behind this dream---the fact that you provided him with the pillow and blankets because you were concerned about his comfort.

    1. In my world (even in my dream world), my goal for myself, and apparently others, is to be comfortable – and if you ever saw the way I dressed, you would know that I always choose comfort over style ;) Thank you for commenting!
