I was woken this morning at 1.45 to the sound of someone pounding at the front door along with a dog howling in pain and/or despair.
So convinced was I that I’d heard theses noises that I got up to look out of the front bedroom window. There was nothing and nobody there, nor had the security lights come on, meaning that nothing larger than a mouse had moved around out there for at least ten minutes.
I have to assume it was a dream, yet I find it odd that I recall nothing else. According to dream therapists seeing or hearing dogs in dreams represent your current state of mind – and given that we are trying to finalise a house move I guess a howling dog is as good a symbol as any. The pounding fists at the door could be likewise interpreted
Or perhaps it was just the neighbours (I gather the police were called to a domestic a few doors away just last week) yet there were no blue lights flashing.
Curious and vaguely disturbing – but always grist for the writing mill!
