> Dreams play a huge part in my analysis - I chose my analyst because he specialises in this kind of work, in fact. But I don't really want to talk about that here. As you say, it makes me feel vulnerable. Sorry.

That's completely understandable. I always assume people will write what they are comfortable with. It's interesting to know that there are people out there who use dreams in their therapy - and in that some cases dreams are central to the therapy.

> Have you ever read a paper by Ogden in "This Art of Psychoanalysis" called 'On not being able to dream'? It is not easy reading - you will need to have read quite widely in the psychoanalytic field to make sense of it - but it's very interesting if you can.

I'm afraid I haven't read widely in the psychoanalytic field. Yes, I have read a limited amount but I am still more ignorant than informed! I will keep the article in mind though.

It's rather nice keeping a note of ones dreams. Some dreams are very beautiful or powerful and some are so equisitely detailed it is hard to capture everything in writing. I shared a particularly engaging one at my last session and it lead to some interesting material, which gave me a lot to think about afterward.

I will definitely persevere with it and see how it develops.
