I enjoyed reading Freud s book When he speaks about dreams and their interpretation, I am reminded of a microfiction I had published years ago where the editor told me it was the weirdest story he has ever read and that a Freudian psychoanalyst would have a field day interpreting Here it is below If anyone would care to offer an interpretation according to Freud or any other school of psychoanalysis, I m sure you could have some fun The Roof DancerSidney and Sam, identical twins, crackerjack roofers, started work up on a roof one sultry July morning when Sam tripped on a piece of tar at the roof s peak and slid down head first He would have plunged straight to the ground if Sidney hadn t reached over at the last moment and snatched him by his boots.Hanging over the side upside down, Sam had a view through a second floor bedroom window The lady of the house was completely naked Her ample rear end was bobbing and swinging to a polka playing on an enormous ancient phonograph.Sidney yanked Sam back up to the roof but Sam became so excited in the process, he ejaculated his semen seed By the time the seed popped out of the bottom of his dungarees, rolled off the roof and landed in the yard, it was the size of a cantaloupe From all corners of the yard kids skipped over and began frolicking with the seed Its round conto

This was a much interesting book than I thought it might be The nature of dreams is something that is hard not to find fascinating The thing is that we spend quite a bit of time dreaming not the third of our lives we spend sleeping, but enough time to make us wonder why we dream at all It seems incomprehensible that our dreams would be completely meaningless But then, they can be so bizarre it is hard to know just what they might mean Freud starts with a quick run through how dreams have been interpreted in the past from Aristotle on Aristotle is a good place to start, as he says we dream about things that have been left unresolved from the day and this is a core idea that Freud also includes in his theory of dreams Essentially, Freud sees dreams as playing a key role in helping us to process stuff that happened during the day But dreams are a truth that likes to hide Their meaning covers itself in remarkable allusions and images that are often amusingly apt, but sometimes it is as if we are determined to hide the true meaning of our dreams even from ourselves.Freud makes it clear that this will not be a book of off the shelf interpretations oh, you dreamt of a lion last night, that means you should have been born Leo and spent time chasing gazelle To Freud it is impossible to understan

I dreamt that I had written a huge modern rewrite of Moby Dick, except instead of a whale they were hunting a badger It was full of gothic scenes of Ahab staring moodily into some light woodland, reminiscing about how the white beast had bitten his foot once, and how he would ultimately earth the hated brock in his dank and stinking sett, and finish him utterly Instead of the Pequod, Ahab and the narrator cycled through the forest on a tandem bicycle, studying tracks and peering through the shrubs Every now and then, one of them would point through the branches and shout, Lo The white badger , and they would pedal off.In my mind this was a serious literary project Unfortunately I have never finished Moby Dick, and so the book just devolved into chapters full of interminable facts about badger biology, lifestyle and cultural history, and the foundational role they play in th
