Last night I dreamed a man gave me a hat.
I have no idea who the man was, or even what the hat looked like.
Obviously, this was not a dream full of rich details.
I don’t dream very frequently, so when I do dream, I tend to pay attention – not so much to the dream, but to the feelings provoked – and from that I can usually interpret a meaning for me.
In this case, I felt that the dream meant that I was changing roles and accepting a different kind of responsibility.
It felt good. Beyond that, I don’t know any further details. Perhaps it was a view of the future.
This morning, as we started to sort out curtains for our bedroom, I felt drawn to a rack of fabrics. Imagine my surprise to see a hat; just sitting on the bolts. There was no-one around and there was no sign of anyone who even looked like they might be the owner.
I was tempted to take the hat – remembering my dream – but I thought of the distraught owner having lost his precious hat, and I resisted.
When we left the hat was still sitting, waiting for the reunion.
I’m still waiting for the change of roles and responsibilities.
