Because Dad isn’t there

Dream

I am driving my bus to the start of my next run, but I have to first go to All Saints Parish Church, Ainslie, to help my mother with the cleaning, because Dad isn't there. The church has a circular driveway and drive the bus into the driveway, entering via the exit and park the bus, facing the wrong way. I realise that the days takings , from the church hasn't been banked, because Dad isn't there, and I will have to go and bank it before starting my bus run. I wonder how can I bank it because I don't have a deposit book. I decide to also bank my days takings from the bread run as well, kill 2 birds with one stone. 2 off duty colleagues of mine, from Brookvale Bus Depot approach. They are waiting for my bus. The 3 of us are walking towards the bus and I have my dog, Jedda, with me (she died many years ago) I get a sense that she wants to go to the toilet and walk her off to where she can do her business. She does an enormous pooh that is about as big as her, under an oak tree.

Dream notes and associations

My 2 colleagues, I only know by sight, though I do know one of them by his first name. All Saints is my parents church, where I went to church as a child and teenager. My father passed away almost 9 years ago. There are a number of oak trees around and near the church. Can't remember when Jedda died, but it was a long time ago, late 1990's. The photo, above, is one of mine of All Saints Church. It was a Mortuary Station at Rookwood Cemetery, in Sydney before it became a church in Ainslie.

My feelings throughout the dream and on awakening

Can't remember any feelings associated with this dream

Hi Lindsay, it sounds like there’s a strong theme here of taking responsibility for someone who is absent or no longer around. It might be worthwhile to observe whether you are pulling most of the weight in a life situation or taking on additional work for someone else?
