I had a rather powerful dream this morning, but it was pretty funny, too Thought I would share because I think it refers symbolically to TMS. I dreamt that I was with my husband in the renovated basement of our house (which is really nice). There are woods behind our house, but suddenly somehow a group of teenagers were eager to come into our back slider door and play a musical ensemble for us (it was like they were part of a school musical band of some sort - I forget the arrangement they were to play for us). There were at least 8-9 teens and they were very friendly and non-threatening. While they were preparing to play us their music, I went to the other room in our basement and opened the door to find that there were hundreds of penguins in the room - LOL! But, in my dream, they were mostly baby penguins with a few adult penguins. They were jumping around all over the place. I was really annoyed and then I went to the main room in our basement where the teens were with my husband. I was angry with the teens and started to ask them in an angry tone where the heck they got those penguins, and why did they have the nerve to try to distract us with music and bring the penguins in???!!! I was really aggravated when apprehending them; the teens got out of our basement room and I talked to them briefly outside letting them know firmly that there may be repercussions for their having done this trick. I let them know that they may have to pay for the penguin cleanup. I said that I did not think they would be penalized by the police, but they would be reported to their sponsoring school. They all were rather timid in response, expressing some remorse for having tried to get the penguins into our home undetected. They left quietly. Anyway, I woke up with an aching back and this just doesn't happen to me these days! I was so ticked at the teens that I couldn't shake the backache for a few minutes. It did disappear as I told my brain that I knew what was going on and it was the frustrated feeling of my dream content that had caused the pain. Just so you know - I never had a dream about penguins before. Also, I don't have teenagers of my own nor do I work with youth. And last, I normally would be annoyed but would not be the disciplinarian. Finally, I did not watch TV shows or anything that alluded to penguins. I have my own theories about this dream. Any thoughts?
