As dreams go, this one was an enigma, until I dug a little deeper to the simplicity of the message in it.
Leader of a menu-planning session, I suggested putting biscuits – bread, the sustenance of life, on the menu. Quickly I was reminded that a plan was already in place for pocket bread. Oh-kay?! That was the dream.
The meaning of the dream was about the contrast between one’s belief of the way everyday life will unfold – the idea of it, versus the reality of it.
Biscuits – simple, easy, and quick; under 30 minutes from start to hot bread. Contrast this with pocket bread – two hours and seven steps later, you can fill this delectable bread.
So, the gist is that I want a little bit of ease in my daily life (biscuits). Doesn’t everybody? Getting from A to B is often so very complicated (pocket bread).
However, the reality is that life is more often than not, not linear, simple, easy, nor as prompt as we would like. It goes off on safari. It goes on walkabout. It goes over to la-la-land. No straight line, more like a jumbled mess of a rambling map to everywhere, nowhere, then, back around to “go,” and I didn’t even get to collect $200 (Monopoly game?!).
No biscuits for you! You make pocket bread!
Alright. Bread is bread.
