When I am stressed or feeling overwhelmed I often have dreams of Utah- of being trapped there. Typically, there are variations on characters- Alan is always there though. Last night, I had a new variation on the same dream, again, Alan was there, I was stuck there but this time there was an addition: my kids. They were with me, trapped also, and I was helpless to help them.
This dream was kind of strange for another reason: we got out. Somehow- I don't recall how it happened but we got out. This is the first time that has ever happened in a Utah dream.
