~*~ Jaron Dreams ~*~

When I became aware of geminispace, one of my first thoughts was that the text-based format would be perfect for dream journals. I've evidently been documenting my dreams since 2016 using Google Keep, which is convenient-but-gross. Now they will live here.

A funny thing happened as I began going back in time and reading some of these. On the same day, I was scrolling through my social media history (going back roughly an equal number of years) looking for a very specific video post. (I had turned the music from the Doom II level 'The Pit' into a retro sci-fi synth tune lol.) I found my personality in those posts a bit grating and difficult to reconcile with who I am now, but the thoughts and feelings expressed in these journals - even the stressful ones - made me feel happier and a little more self-assured somehow.

I enjoy how some are brief and perhaps oddly universal despite how strange they are, and how others are detailed, specific, and personal.

Other people are recording their dreams in geminispace as well. I will share some as I find them (which feels odd-yet-neat..?)
