None at all? I think I recall a little book "The Interpretation of Dreams", by S. Freud.

Edit: There is an online English translation of Freud's book at http://www.psywww.com/books/interp/toc.htm.

The few dreams I remember these days are bad dreams and they wake me up. They reflect my fears. No mystery.

A year or two ago I had a very strong premonition of death, alone in a far place, but it did not happen. That was very vivid and it shook me up.

The brain plays tricks on us. It is a screenwriter in the dark.

I guess the monkey must have been your father, and your pinky is your clitoris. You needed to fend off his advances or propitiate him. Fortunately, despite your fears, he didn't penetrate you. Overall, it seems you are resolving these old family conflicts which (according to Freud, anyway) we all have.

A hard serve right down the centerline to the rightie's back hand.
