A Heavy Storm

1. I dream I am reading a newspaper or magazine and I see an article about the election. I try to read it but suddenly it starts raining. It’s a heavy storm, a torrent of rain coming down. The print of the article runs. I’m feeling frustrated because I don’t understand what’s going on.  2. I dream I am in the backyard cleaning up dog poop. There is more poop than there should be. I am using newspaper not just plastic bags to clean up. Then I realize that the poop contains information that will come out after the election. I don’t know what to do with it. 3.  I dream I am in a ditch or ravine. It is like a long gash in the globe, deep and dark with steep walls. I don’t know how I will get out. I am trying on clothes. There is a pile of men’s suit jackets. I am trying to decide which jacket to put on to protect me from Trump.

Three short dreams from a woman in California in her 50’s. Dreamer’s comments: “I have had dreams with this ravine before, although in the past they usually involve me trying to rescue or help someone. I associate this dream with trauma. One of the triggers is Trump barging in on the girls dressing at the Teen pageant and his inappropriate talk about his daughter… In the dream I think I’m trying to dress like a man or be a man as a way to avoid this invasive behavior.”
