This is an interesting dream. It can go at least four different ways. You can choose which one feels like a fit.
In the first interpretation, you lead a kicked-back lifestyle where you love to ponder the universe in a dream-like state. Its very visual. I can see you perfectly, floating on your back, not a care in the world. Then suddenly BAM! reality hits and your reality has A LOT of responsibility (big fireball). Uh oh, better duck for cover (angry boss, wife?) The danger passes and youre back floating through another cosmic dream.
In the second interpretation you suffer from either major depression or bi-polar disorder. Your express anxiety and a loss of control (
uhh, shit and dammit). The black sea, the blazing fireball. It all could fit. Or maybe you suffer from migraines or asthma attacks. You tell me.
In the third interpretation you are in a creative field where you spend a great deal of head-time letting your creative juices stew. Then WHAM! an inspiration comes and calls you to action. BUT, you dont want to work that hard. After all, it takes a lot of work to manifest a creative inspiration.
Last, but definitely not least, is St. Elmos Fire, a flame-like, fiery appearance, usually at sea (note) that appears during stormy nights to strike fear in the hearts of all who witness it. Legend has it that it is the soul of someone who has committed suicide (note: major depression) or has been murdered. It is also rumored that when it appears, it leads people astray. Does this one work?
Our psyches are so complex all four and possibly more could be flirting with the truth. Let me know which fits.
One final note: If it is the third interpretation, you could really leave a creative stamp on the world if you didnt slack off and duck the fireball. Its just a hot idea, after all.
