Memory (Snow) Bank
Before I moved to England in 1985, I had a dream which seemed significant at the time. The one image that recurred in last night’s dream involved my assisting a woman who’s car was stuck in snow. It’s strange to dream of such things in summer, but that’s what makes dreams so interesting.
This time, the dream brought up subsequent events after I moved to England. The baby that was ‘left outside alone’ seems to be the main point of the dream. Guilt!
The mother of this baby was sleeping inside my home. Her husband came for her. We (her husband and I) embraced, and spoke in gentle tones while she slept on the couch. Then she woke up. The first thing she said was, “I’m taking you home with me.” This she said to her husband, much to my surprise.
I went outside and brought the baby into the house and gave it to its mother. Then I went outside again, and tried to keep others from nicking the baby clothes that were spread out on the kerb. I wasn’t entirely successful.
I happened to come across a small family tree on ancestry that was attributed to this woman. In the discussion about it, with a different woman who established the tree, I discovered that she and the baby’s mother are friends. I mentioned that if she ever wants to viewed my extended family tree, all she has to do is ask. I suspect that this dream was in response to that statement.
