Como Zoo is Drowning

Welcome to my new Dream Interpretation blog! The first dream comes from Laura. Here's what she sent me.

All I remember of last nights hellish journey through dreamland was this:

A groundskeeper at Como Zoo standing there watering the already flooded and over saturated grounds, which were atmospherically miserable...cold, dreary greens.

Bad. What do you think?

Yeah, that sounds pretty bad, Laura. I love how dreams like this can be scary without anything really scary happening. A groundskeeper watering? ...But it is creepy.

Water is essential and life giving and a zoo is usually connected to fun, and again, teaming with life. (Except for the depressingly cramped giraffe ironically named "Sunny" and the obsessive compulsive polar bear that won't stop repeating the same movements and tapping the same piece of wall with the same paw over and over again.) In your dream, what should be life giving is drowning life.

So, to spell it out, you feel like something that should be good for your life is instead suffocating and damaging the ground you stand on.
... or your having bladder problems and hate the disgusting restrooms at the zoo. Take your pick.

  1. I love the name and very good job analyzing that dream, i think you hit the nail on the head!

    ps. in your "about me", you should probably add your credentials or at least say something about your "knack" for analyzing dreams.
