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. In my dream I was in a town where I used to live but it was dark so dark. The town had changed from the light and bright town I had known to a town where people were shadows and the darkness seemed to shut out even the brightest light. I was looking for an old friend who I loved as an aunt. The people kept stopping me and asking me where I was going and I thought I would never reach the library where my "aunt" worked. I finally reached the library but when I went inside my aunt did not remember me. Another old friend was there and she gave me a big hug. She remembered me! But my aunt never recognized me. The one person who I wanted to remember me didn't. I felt lonely and shocked and downhearted. I felt unloved and betrayed. This one lady who was one of my dear friends didn't care enough to remember me. I was so very sad. I remember waking up from dream just sobbing my heart out. I was about 14 at the time.
