When Someone Else's Past Haunts Your Dreams

I recently read Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces in an attempt to better understand story arcs. (He’s the person who outlined The Hero’s Journey, a narrative structure that has influenced George Lucas and countless other storytellers.)

Joseph Campbell put a lot of stock in “dreams that blister sleep,” drawing parallels between their imagery and universal archetypes. So I’ve been paying close attention to my own dreams lately, and writing them down when I can.

I keep dreaming about wild animals in my parents' backyard.
