Bad dream again

Whenever I have a bad dream, I feel a certain discomfort. Especially if  during the dream,  I felt stressed  out or like I was horrified or agitated leading to a feeling of distress.

I don't like dreaming about disasters or tumultuous events. I dreamt about the EDSA Revolution. Perhaps 6 months before it happened. I also dreamt about the Mt.Pinatubo eruption, not the actual volcanic eruption but what I saw was the sea like volcanic ash which we all saw after the natural occurrence. My dream happened a year or so before Mt Pinatubo decided to unleash its fury..

And so what did  dream about this morning?

Flood in its browniest brown colors.. UNIVERSE, please take us far away from this "disaster".
