A Recurring Nightmare

During a lovely family outing, my father would remind me that I had to walk up a pretty little path near the lake. I knew the path would go higher and higher, and get smaller and smaller, but I had no choice. And every night I had that dream, I would wake up falling...(call the shrinks!).

This is fantastic. Very simple and clear. Good one.

Great! I can relate to this having sleepwalked a few times as a kid. Once I unbolted the back door and ended up calling for my Mum at the bottom of the garden ankle deep in mud!

LOVE this, especially that wide blue space really makes you focus on the other great details. Once you discover what the dream means, you'll stop having it.

Falling is a very common sensation when you dream, and there is some scientific explanation for it that I can't recall. Well done!

I love this! Really illustrates your fear well. I frequently dream that I can float or fly and the sensation is amazing. I think it's about as common a dream as falling.

Excellent collage! I used to have recurring nightmare of free falling inside a lift.

despite being a nightmare, it's scenery is so beautiful!
