Text of most memorable dream reports from participants in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011 and other sources. Exact question used in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011: We are interested in hearing the story of an especially memorable dream you had, from any time in your life. Please try to recall as many details as possible, including the setting, characters, colors, actions, and any feelings or thoughts you had in the dream. Three dreams really stick out. One was when I was aobut 8 or 9 and I had a dream that I was at my grandma's house and big bird from seasame street was there sitting on a nest in the backyard. I was very confused about that and still don't understand it. My brother and my grandparents were there. Another was a recurring for a while but I haven't had it in a few years. I was probably around 10 the first time. I had a dream that I was in my old friend's house and all of a sudden someone started leading elephants on a leash through the door. Everyone around me was acting like it was completely normal. I was a big fan of elephants back then they were my favorite animal. While everyone was acting normal I was terrifyed and hid behind the couch while they attempted to poke at me with their trunks. Soon everyone left and I was alone to "babysit" these elephants. I think the dream had something to do with being different or maybe not I really don't know. The third and most recent & meaningful was one I had a little less than a year ago. I was backstage at a concert and there was this guy there...I couldn't figure it out for sure but it seemed like he was supposed to be my boyfriend. He wasn't familiar to me when I woke up I had know idea who he was I just felt like I loved him. I was thinking about it for weeks straight nonstop before I began to get over it. I never dreamt about that boy again but everytime I meet someone who has the same features dark curly hair brown eyes and a guitar player...I try to figure out if maybe they could be the guy from my dream. Also I remember that his name sounded like Bryan or Dylan or something like that. I don't remember it though and I wrote down everything I remembered right when I woke up. I was 14.
