The Yellow Snake Dream


I had just checked in to a hotel for another dreaded two-week business training seminar. I was with Randy, my old partner, and another (unfamiliar to me) female co-worker. I was in a panic because I had made the hotel reservation for only one night, not for two weeks.

Construction was going on behind the building due to a flooding problem. They were digging up the ground to install a drainage system.

When I opened the door to my room, the carpet was flooded and soggy and snakes were crawling out from everywhere - from under the bed, under the baseboards, and under my pillow. All the digging was driving them out of the ground.

The snakes were yellow with a diamond pattern. They reminded me of snaky yellowjacket wasps. I was trying to remember the rhyme to determine if they were poisonous. Is it black and yeller, kill a feller? Or is it red and yeller kill a feller? I can never remember.

A couple of the snakes were solid black like chicken snakes. The largest one was a black one and about three-feet long.

I knew I had to rescue my cat from the room who inexplicably I had brought with me and was already in the room.

When one of the snakes crawled up to my foot I woke up.

Had an attack of sleeping sickness today. Went to bed at 10:00 last night and woke up at 11:00 this morning. Ate a bowl of cereal and went back to sleep.

Woke up around 5:00, ate some supper and went back to sleep again. Finally woke up around midnight. Now I'm wide awake and drawing.

Just had to share a quote I have written in one of my journals. "I believe that dreams transport us through the undersides of our days, and that if we wish to become acquainted with the dark side of what we are, the signposts are there waiting for us to translate them. Dreams say what they mean, but they don't say it in daytime language." Gail Godwin in "The Finishing School." Miz Dee

My entire childhood was filled with similar dreams, so if you figure out what it means...maybe you could let me know!!
