I had a meta-naked dream last night, very odd.

I've never been afflicted with the standard "realize I'm naked in public" sorts of embarrassment dreams.

But last night, in the dream plot, some strangers-neighbors were at the door to my dwelling, wanting to come in. I was toweling off from a shower, and that, and several other reasons, I felt it was unwise and unprudent that I let them in. They disagreed, and I was more than a little concerned that they weren't concerned.

I suspect the standard fare is fear of public embarrassment/humiliation, while yours sounds more worry either about where you set your boundaries, or whether others will respect them.

Me, I have dreams about powerlessness. Something relentless is pursuing me, or can snatch my children from my very arms, or something has given way and the water rushes in faster than I can bail, or...

Interesting. Is there anything in your life that's going on now that might give you pause to think about some preconceived ideas?

When I was in college, I once dreamed I was walking across campus naked, and couldn't remember whether it was on purpose or I'd just forgotten to get dressed.

Right after I moved up from PDX I had the closest dream I've ever had to the meta-naked dream: I was at school in bra and panties, and I kept trying to get to my locker to get my uniform and get dressed, but people kept asking for my help and otherwise distracting me. The near-nakedness was pretty irrelevant to the dream, except that it made me pretty obviously totally unprepared to do any sort of work in kitchens.

Hmm... I guess the worry symbolism there isn't too opaque. ;)
