The Monster

Dear Peregrin,

I'm in my bed and my mother is downstairs doing laundry in the garage. I get up to try and find my mother for something when I hear a noise. So I go downstairs to see what it is. I hear it again, and it sounds like someone is knocking on the door. The curtains are closed so I can't see who it is. I walk over and look behind the cutains and this very enormous guy is standing there, and he is saying, "Let me in." I remember that he had extremely huge fingers and especially his fingernails. He had red, crazy hair and large pointed teeth. I was terrified beyond belief. So I called my mother for help. She hears me and comes over to see what is wrong. But for some reason she doesn't see this hidous guy wanting to come in. I cry and cry but she just walks away like nothing is happening. Then I look over and there he is still wanting to get inside. After awhile I start to open the door. All I can focus on is this guy's fingers becuase they are so big. As I am opening the door his mouth waters and that is when I wake up.

Good morning, Bornkrae.

This dream setting reminds me of "The Three Little Pigs." The big guy wanting in sounds like a terrifying human personification of the Big Bad Wolf. If this were my dream, I would try to think of anything that had me worried or scared lately, something that Mom may not know about or perhaps something that I think that she wouldn't understand... and then I would try to make her understand, anyway. This dream seems to be filled with feelings of being powerless, and it sounds like any help from outside would make things a lot easier.

Pleasant dreams,

Peregrin
