Amelia's Running Dream

She has vivid dreams of running. Sometimes through cities with imposing buildings. Sometimes she's being chased. But the running remains the same. Always running.​

​Since she's had these dreams as long as she can remember, I said it's pretty clear she's running from something. That the dreams are so vivid, so consistent in theme--it's her brain trying to get her attention. Her mind is not only reviewing what has been, but is rehearsing for what is to come.

It must be exhausting.​

I suggested she try and turn around. To pause. To stop running....both in her dreams & in the waking life that's fueling what her dreams are made of.
