Wow, Tabitha, what a great dream. Thank you for posting it.

If you don't want my take on it, stop here!

The tank coming out of the tree, is it that you feel or fear something damaging to your famliy, or your relationship to them, is coming out of therapy?

You write that the tree is your therapist, and you cause these events.

You hide from the tank, you escape it. Is it that you escape the damaging effects of therapy? Hm.

You can't get back to your family in your present form, the way is blocked. You spend a long time wandering the chaos of the town.

Your family and your other self are transformed by the nerve gas, you are your real self elsewhere, a person apart from the the big head (intellect vs. emotion?).

The aliens battle the humans - that could be the interior battle you are fighting. What part of you are the aliens? What part the humans?

For me in my dreams, the "therapist" often represents a part of me.

The think about the cowboy - I can't help but relate this to the present political situation. How Bush, who is a cowboy, is terrorising the country with fear (of terrorism). He is crushing underfoot and befouling.

If this were my dream, I'd see a battle in myself, that I am struggling with leaving behind a part of me - and my life, and my family - that I am afraid will be transformed (in my own mind) and lost to me. I am taking chances, and I am afraid of what this will mean, how it might change my life, will it make me an outsider?

I'll stop here. I hope you are not offended that I applied my imagination and my self to your dream. It's a really good dream, surely full of the things you are mentally digesting. My T would have a field day if it were my dream.
