Dream 01_200809

Dream of the Month (September 2008)
  1. Title: One That Got Away
  2. Date of the Dream: 2008 (mailed Sunday, 31 August 2008)
  3. Dream: I was fishing in a boat on a lake near our family's cabin in a northern Midwest state. Suddenly, I had a large fish on the line and became very excited about pulling it in. There were family members in the boat, though I can't precisely remember which ones. I asked one of them to get the net. Finally, I pulled the fish in, but to my great disappointment, it had been bitten in half, with its frayed insides hanging out. I had assumed it was a large muskellunge, but it was a smaller fish than I had expected. I assumed a larger fish must have eaten the fish on my line and gotten away, fooling me into thinking the fish I had on my line was really big. At that point, my only thought was to put it out of its misery, so I grabbed a knife to pierce its head.

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Striking Characteristics: Fishing in dreams is often associated with striving to fulfill an objective or goal.

This dream takes us through three stages: the initial excitement of a promising situation, the disappointment of seeing the fish is only half there, and the full realization that this was never a really big fish after all. Although it seems rather sad, the dreamer is brutally realistic and deals swiftly with the situation that has revealed itself. There is no need for the fish to suffer, and there is no reward in regret either. Perhaps the situation hes dealing with could impact the other people (family members) who are in the same boat. In any event, this is a dream of recognition and assimilation of a new situation, and this dreamer is meeting it head on, fully aware, and unafraid to take swift action. The dreamer is taking the gutsy course of action, and the brave perspective as he assesses things. There appear to be no hard feelings, but he wont be fooled twice or waste any more of his time. Next time, the prize will be his.
