My ex and I haven't spoken for more than a year, on purpose by my choice, and we have very few mutual friends at this point (he burned a lot of bridges on his way out). Other than a couple blurbs through the grapevine and one drunken and curious episode where night I looked at his family's photos on facebook, I haven't thought about him much. However, twice in the last two weeks I have dreamed about him, both dreams them involving him, his wife, and their baby son.
The most weird scene of both of them was when in one, I was in charge of holding the baby when a whole bunch of family was around (I'm pretty sure it was his, hers, and some weird combination of my family). I adored this child, thought it was the most cherubic thing ever.
From both dreams, I woke up feeling weirdly neutral. I've written before about how powerful dreams can be, but not in this case. I just felt really curious. If anybody has any theories as to why I would have these dreams or what they mean, I would love to hear it. Seriously.
