In a dream this morning I am shopping with my wife and she buys a plain sliver cross. She senses that I’m not happy with spending the money on it and she starts brooding about it. I hold her close and I begin to see images of myself flashing through her mind as if she’s trying to find a particular image of me. As the images flash by I realize that she’s trying to find an image of me wearing a cross around my neck but there are none. Suddenly, it occurs to me that she had purchased the cross as a gift for me and now it will not have the meaning or significance she’d intended. I find myself wondering how to explain my lack of religion to her in a way that’s not demeaning to her beliefs.
Although I found seeing images in her mind interesting and unusual, it did not trigger lucidity.
