Puppet display comes to life - dream analysis

THE DREAM I am by the harbour. I start picking up lumps of excrement and I am feeding them to the birds. Then I get onto a fishing boat. There seems to be some artwork being sold. I see a kind of three dimensional work. There are five people in some kind of puppet display. I later come back and see the same display. Now it has come alive. The figures in this little puppet display are now moving as if real. They are running around the stage.

GUESSWORK The very next day the dreamer was due to finish a project that was taking a long time. He had a written a book about maritime history. He had some ideas to turn this into an audio book.

The "Guesswork" stage of interpreting a dream involves spotting issues likely to cause dreams. For help with this click here

1. The dream takes place down by the harbour. That's a strong association as the dreamer was writing a book about maritime history. The dream could easily be about that in some way.
2. Picking up excrement and using it to feed birds suggests something negative. It suggests that the dreamer was maybe using material which wasn't very good.
3. The puppet show is an easy symbol. It comes to life and it also features the phrase "motion picture" or something like that. This is clearly a symbol for bringing something to life. It could easily be about making a book interesting and capturing the reality of the history.

DREAM ANALYSIS In guesswork the dream was linked to the dreamers thoughts about finishing a book. The dream deals with the following themes
- Bringing something to life
- Using something which is not good quality

If you weave together the different themes you find that they could capture this thought that the dreamer was thinking at the time-"I have done quite a good job with this book. But I should have been more selective with the material. I hope to really bring the subject to life by making an audio book."
