(no subject)

I keep having my train dreams. I'm always waiting for trains, hopping from train to train, sometimes following people, sometimes leading people, sometimes running from or after people, sometimes alone. In the context of the dream, I always know exactly where I'm trying to get to and why, although that information never sticks around when I wake up.

The only feeling, other than the general urgency of needing to direct myself or others wherever, that I can remember from these dreams is a sort of general "unauthorized" feeling, like I'm really not allowed to be doing whatever it is I'm doing, although it's definitely the right thing to do.

They're always varied forms of train - I'll sometimes hop off a normal electric LIRR train, only to board an old-fashioned steam engine. Sometimes they're even trains of really futuristic design.

I've had this recurring dream for a long time. The only change I'm noticing in the dream, is I'm alone more and more often in my train-hopping these days.
