Leaving the Athlete


I had a dream a few days ago.

I was lying in a snowy land and I could see snow around my face. When I got up, I saw a bus far behind me. There were many people gathered around the bus. I was curious, so I came up to the bus.Then I saw a famous athlete who was waving from the window of the bus.

When I woke up, I thought that something was likely to leave me. Well, what is represented by the famous athlete for me? In general, a famous athlete is made from very hard training and needs good support. Also, his ability in a sport is by far more excellent than ordinary athletes.

The athlete in my dream might signify a part of my character or an ability, but I don't know what it is. So, I might not need this ability any more.

On the other hand, I could guess that the athlete symbolises that I should stop relying on something particular. It means that the famous athlete is a kind of hero, but one hero alone can't maintain a high level in sport. Keeping and developing your level requires cooperation with many other athletes and supporters.

Now, it might be coming to the time that I need to synthesise a variety of ideas, experience and abilities for my way of thinking and my life.
