Yep, but point 2 (forgetting it) does work out only until I get in one of that sentimental moods (2++ L of beer or it's equivalent in some other alcoholica or that bloody early darkness in autumn/winter), then stuff pops up again.

question for Sunday, Oct. 21:

Are you aware of your sense of smell in your dreams?

trisherina 10-21-2007 12:42 PM

Sure. Sense of smell is very important to me while awake, so it makes sense that it would appear in all my dream-memories.

auntie aubrey 10-21-2007 12:44 PM

rarely, if ever. i'm trying to think if i've had awareness of smell in a dream but i can't think of a specific instance.

smell is more of an awakening sensation. if i actually smell something it will wake me up from a dead sleep. it doesn't really work its way into my subconscious. that i'm aware of.

T.I.P. 10-21-2007 12:52 PM

Smells are also important to me in real life, and i think i can smell things in my dreams, though i've never really paid attention to that sense in my dreams. I will try tonight.

(OT digression:

A new addition to my dream sensations was feeling of INTENSE pain in my left hand in a dream i had last week. really wierd. I don't think i've ever felt pain like that in a dream. When i woke up my hand felt fine :confused: )

^I had my fingers shut in a door last week.

That TIP voodoo doll is coming in really handy. :D

I don't have a very good sense of smell at all in my waking hours; I grew up in an area with really bad air pollution, so maybe the inside of my nose is dead. :eek: Oddly, though, I sometimes have olfactory hallucinations before I get migraines, and my sense of smell often plays a big part in my dreams. I was telling someone a dream of mine recently, and she was surprised I ever smelled things, so I've been wondering which is more common.

lukkucairi 10-21-2007 01:26 PM

yes, I remember smelling things in dreams.

I have also been woken up from dreams by smells that were so strong they intruded into my sleep.

note: lentils before bed is not a good idea :)

After consultation with my legal team, I have elected to exercise my right against self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.

My dad died many years ago; in my dream, I am aware that he is gone...I identified him (in my dream) by burying my face in his shirt and breathing in deeply. It was my dad...his scent was immediately identifiable. It made me infinitely happy.

auntie aubrey 10-21-2007 06:35 PM

^ okay yes, i have had one of those. just one.

brightpearl 10-21-2007 06:37 PM

^^Yeah, me too...I dreamed about helping my friend's wife go through his things after he'd died, and I could smell him on his shirts as I packed them away. It's interesting that that comes up frequently for people...

Tunesmith 10-22-2007 12:29 AM

No, not that I'm aware of...my dreams are usually these trippy landscapes that seem as if my subconscious has been experimenting w/ LSD.

I had one last night in which I was photographing myself photographing myself photographing myself photographing myself...in some kind of strange loop. :cool:

Stephi_B 10-22-2007 06:31 AM

^Fascinating dream loop thingie :)

No, can't remember ever smelling something in my dreams. Sounds are rather rare, my dreams are mostly visual I'd say and some sort of motion is quite common too.
