But you can't help it, can you?

I chose not to remember,and that is the actual context of the thought. The subject was a dream about a group of icons with symbols on them.
They were beautiful, but the true beauty was in thier meaning. When i tried to remember this dream,only moments after waking, i was able to go only so far before having to decide whether or not to try harder to remember.I remembered that it was a beautiful experience, possibly even important, but at that point decided to leave it at that and felt good about that decision...so i wrote that down. later i thought about other interpretations and i think i understand what you mean

very moment I spent with you... was beautiful. I try not to remember but sometimes I just can't help it.

I know that frustration of trying to remember a dream that you know is something special to remember, but not being able to put the words to it is my biggest problem. I know the emotions or how I feel from it, so yes, there are times I just find myself happy to have that. Those emotions are what make it beautiful for me.

it is interesting how they run away as you try and catch them.

i take melatonin each night mainly for its action as a terminal antioxidant. ( the best kind of antioxidant) but if you cant sleep & take 3 mg and its not real bright in the room you will go to sleep usually in about an hour.I think its safe s long as you not pregnant
Regular sleeping pills are very bad for the brain and i would never take any. I love to get a good 7 hrs a night and consider dreams a real bonus when i remember them...the real scary nightmares i could live without

I think I am really fortunate,, just put me horizontal and I am asleep. I fight that position until I am ready and then I can sleep for up to 10 hours if allowed. I think I make my own melatonin. Always dream... I only remember one nightmare in my whole life and the person who hurt me was my mother. I think it's because those scary beasts of dreams... I make friends with them. Kinda like "Where the Wild Things Are." When you lucid dream.. you can make anything happen.
