A retired college professor who specializes in dreams offers me an interpretation of a weekend dream. I dreamed about an event that had two geographical locations combined into one. The first was the home where I grew up…the other the home where we live now. We have an air lock in our present home for security and other reasons. In my dream, the air lock was a part of my boyhood home. In the dream, my now adult son, Scott, was about 10. He had the outer-door of the airlock open talking with two men. I opened the inner door to see what was going on. The two men pushed past Scott. I immediately went into a martial arts defensive-offensive mode and began kicking them. I awakened kicking the bed sheets and shouting for Scott to move back inside. My wife said I was loud.
My friend’s offered interpretation: I’m resisting what both my conscious and subconcious minds know are inevitable. The two intruders are my mortality=death. Scott is the link to extending my life, so in my dream, I fight to protect him and myself.
