In college I had dreams I was late for an exam and had to walk across campus. Later, working in the theatre, I dreamed that "Places" had been called and I was not in my place, and had to get there. In one series of theatre-dreams, I was running up a down escalator in slow-motion, trying to get to the spotlight booth.
But recently my anxiety dreams have featured a kind of technological advance! My psyche has entered the modern age.
In my dreams now, I am frantically trying to call someone on a cell phone, just in time to avert some dread disaster or misstep. The battery is dying. I can't get a signal. The number is not in my contacts and I have to look it up. My fingers fumble the little keys.....
It's good to know I'm keeping up with the times.
