A Dream 一個夢

University of Washington 華盛頓大學

What do you dream about?  你作什麼夢?

Love?  Sex?  Things that happened before?  Tests you took?  愛情?  色情?  以前發生過的事?  考過的試?

Or maybe you don't remember what you dream.  Maybe you don't dream at all.  Or maybe your dreams don't make any sense, or maybe they are impossible to describe.  還是你不記得你做過的夢.  也可能你根本不作夢.  或者是你所作的夢沒有意義, 或是無法描述夢境.

I suppose I dream a lot, though I don't always remember what I was dreaming.  Most of my recent dreams are fairly uninteresting, though I do have some strange ones now and then.  我常常作夢, 可是有時候忘記自己作了什麼夢.  我最近作的夢大部分是無趣的.  可是偶爾是作奇怪的夢.

Last night, for example, I dreamed I was back in college.  I think it was the University of Washington, where I was a student years ago.  I was in my twenties again, and on my way to class.  Somewhere between my apartment and my class I lost both the front wheel of my bike and my cell phone, and I was looking all over the campus for them.  比方說昨天晚上, 我夢到我還在大學念書.  那所大學應該是我幾年前讀過的華盛頓大學.  夢中的我二十幾歲, 正在去上課的路上.  我住的套房跟教室之間掉了我單車的前輪跟手機, 所以我在校園裡到處在找那兩樣東西.

Eventually I ran into two girls who helped me in my search.  We never found the wheel and the cell phone - probably because my alarm went off, and woke me up before the dream was over.  When I woke up I still felt very worried and pressed for time.  過了一會兒遇到兩個女人幫我一起找.  我們三個都找不到手機跟車輪.  大概是因為我的鬧鐘在作完夢前響了, 把我叫醒了.  我起床的時候還是感到很緊張和時間的壓力.

The strange part of the dream was that I wasn't just "me" in it.  I was also one of the girls who were helping "me."  And I was also a second "me," watching the first "me" and the two girls look for my bike wheel and my cell phone.  I can remember the second "me" being amused at the proceedings, and thinking That guy better hurry up, or he's going to be late! 最奇怪的部分是我在夢中時不只是自己一個人.  我同時也是幫我找東西的其中一位女人.  我另外也有一個分身看第一個"我"和那二位女人找車輪跟手機.  我還記得第二個"我"覺得他們這樣找東西很好笑, 也覺得第一個"我"要趕快去上課, 不然要遲到了.

Ah well.  My brain is sometimes a weird and scary place.  And maybe the dream had some other, Freudian kind of meaning... if you go in for that sort of thing.  I've never been big on psychological symbolism, so I have nothing to say about that.  哎呀!  有時候我自己的頭腦是一個很恐怖的地方.  可能我這個夢在心理學上還有其他的意思.  因為我不是很相信心理學, 所以我不知道.

And you?  What did you dream about last night?  What were you doing?  I'd be interested to know, if it's something you can share.  Maybe your dreams are even weirder than mine?  那你呢?  你昨天晚上作什麼夢?  你在夢中做什麼事?  如果願意跟我分享的話, 我很想知道你夢中發生什麼事情.  有可能你作的夢比我的還奇怪!
