Watches as Gifts

Dear Peregrin,

I had a dream last night that I was in the living room sitting on the sofa with my dad. My mom then comes in after visiting the neighbor that lives a couple of doors away. She hands my dad and me a gift. I think it was gifts from the neighbor.

My dad opens his and it is a watch. The face of the watch was an LCD display. It had no numbers, but it had the hour and minutes hands. I believe the color of the watch was green, he liked it.

Then when I opened my gift, it was one of those fancy looking women watches. There were 2 of them. I noticed that one was bigger then the other though. I felt happy for some reason, I recall becoming teary-eyed.

My brother got a silver figaro bracelet and was showing it off. My mom then explained to me (while I took the watch out of the box) that it was the neighbors, but that it did not fit her (or something like that) so she gave it to me.

I think that is when I woke up. I don't know what to make of it. Could the dream be telling me that my "time is up," or that I'm wasting time, etc? You know is it a death premonition? I ask because my fiance, who passed away a few months ago, had a similar dream with a watch he received in a box. But, the person who delivered it to him was a mailman. I'm just curious to know since it was my father and me who got the watches.

A few weeks ago, I had a dream that I looked at a watch on a wall and it said 5:00PM. I said to myself, "great, now I'm late" that is all I remember. Thank you very much.

Good morning, Dreamer.

There's little doubt that dreams involving clocks and watches are trying to call our attention to time, but I doubt that this one is a premonition of your death. Rather, I think that this kind of thing is on your mind because of your fiance's dream, and then later his death.

The watches are all gifts, to and from family members, and you got two - an unexpected bonus. What's going on here is likely a realization that time spent with your loved ones is precious, and if you get a chance to spend a little more than expected, you ought to take it.

The watch on the wall may carry a similar message. The question I'd want to ask is, what were you late for at 5:00pm? This is universally recognized as the time people get off work, so I think you were late for your own personal time - time taken for your own enjoyment.

Pleasant dreams,
