A new avocation for Jim?
Please click on the picture to check out the back cover.
I do not dream, nor does Mrs. Jim. Dreaming is one of the most enjoyable pastimes I ever had in earlier life. It didn't even rob me of precious working or play time. I just did it while I was sleeping. More enjoyable too was savoring them and telling of them while I was awake doing things.
I have learned how to use the book, now I need some dreams to learn on. If any of you have dreams you would like interpreted, send them on to me. Either by comment or via e-mail, or by putting a private note to me through my
I will put the e-mail address in this first comment. It is possible to find it through some of my blog headers or side bars; it isn't in my profile but is in the "About Me Meme."On the right trackOur Sunday school lesson for this Sunday is about poor little Joseph getting thrown into the pit and then sold by his mean brothers. Don't feel too sorry for him, he was doing a little bragging. And though he was Joseph's favorite son, he wasn't his older brothers' favorite little brother.
His dream was that while working in the fields, his sheath of wheat stood erect and all the other brother's sheaths bowed down around it. I tried my interpretation on Joseph's dream.
Now I don't think it takes much of a super seer to find what this means. Just in case you need help, the Bible at Genesis 37 tells the interpretation. Simple, all the other brothers were to pay homage to Joseph who would rule tall over them! (Some of you could envision sexual things here also. OK, use your imagination but it wouldn't be Scriptural!)
Could your dream with my interpretation end up here on this blog? Yes it actually can happen! But only if you want it that way. If I get really good dream interpretation would be a natural for my Ask Dr. Jim (blog)!
If I get some before we leave for Ireland I will practice there using my new-found book to determine their meanings for you all.

"Seven or eight hours is a competent time for a melancholy man to rest, as Crato thinks; but as some do, to lie in bed and not sleep, a day, or half a day together, to give assent to pleasing conceits and vain imaginations, is many ways pernicious." (Robert Burton 1577 - 1640)
Yes, day dreaming is dreaming while still awake. Either in wish-fulfilment fantasies or regression to and rehashing of earlier time memories.
Freud believed extreme day dreams were a precursor to hysteria. I would continue further and consider them a form of scheming and plan formulation mental activities.
And how sad that you don't have dreams anymore. I recently heard a theory about dreams being the "practice" for events of real life - like it used to be to sharpen our survival skils. Which is why children have nightmares. It was an interesting theory.
Sorry for such a long comment, I just find the subject fascinating! :-)
I want to dream of the Astro's back in the world series but I think that is more of a wish than a dream. So far we are 1 and 3.
Take lots of pictures on your trip to Ireland and you and Mrs. Jim have a good time.
BTW: I love that parable of Joseph and his brothers. It is a multi-leveled story.
What do you think this means.
Someone They're Valued." Good advice for us all. I laughed at the note your Mom left you - so funny.
I have a book similar to yours, but rarely remember any dreams I have.
Then I don't bother looking them up.
Good luck with your new hobby!!
Enjoy your trip and your life. Take care, Regards, Merle.
I dreamed that I was asleep and he came into the room wearing hot pink roller skates and he had pink hair rolled up in great, big, pink rollers the size of orange juice cans or biscuit cans. It was so vivid that when I awoke, I had to think a moment to remember if it was a dream or not.
I'm sending this blog from GA. Howdy!!
That said, I will look in my book, probably Monday or Tuesday. Thanks.
Once I dreamed that there was a goat walking on the roof.
Have a wonderful blessed Sunday Jim. If I dream tonight I'll try to remember it!
I dream every night, the wierdest things. I'm beginning to wonder if I'M weird. It's unsetttling.
