Dream Delivery Service

I signed up for the Dream Delivery Service after reading about it at LWA.

Dreams have been arriving more or less every day for a few weeks now in these little pink envelopes.



Sometimes two dreams arrive in the same envelope.






Except for dream number 10. That one is AWOL. Dream 10 arrived - it seems that it was mailed without a stamp, returned, and resent after a stamp was affixed.




Now dreams 15 & 16 are MIA. As of today, there are 5 dreams left to receive.

Here's my first dream.


Update: a link to a video on the BBC about the guy behind DDS


I dream occasionally, usually forgetting the details after I wake up. I know I've been dreaming, as I wake up feeling like something just happened, and that while it was happening it was vivid and memorable. But I can never remember what the dream was.

Do you dream?

Would you like to receive a daily dream in the mail?

What about a daily nightmare? 

(FYI, you had to pay extra for Nightmare Delivery Service - some would say why pay extra when we already have USPS!).

  1. I usually do not remember my dreams in the morning. Which I find a bit frustrating. This idea to receive a dream is a good one.

    1. It has been interesting, although I feel that I would not be dreaming any of the dreams I received.

  2. I felt really curious about this! I dream, and sometimes remember dreams. I occasionally explain my dreams too someone, but often this seem too intimate. However, someone are funny... I can send one of those to you!

    Definitely, I wouldn't pay for nightmares. I have my own paranoias, you know.

    1. Yes, no need to pay for nightmares, that's for sure!

  3. Good description of a dream. At least you stayed on topic long enough to fix the mess.

    1. Always interesting to have a postal oddity.

  4. I don't remember my dreams either, they seem to obliterate themselves so quickly. What a dreamy idea to receive them like this.

    1. It has certainly been interesting. One day, everyone dreamed the same dream... or so my dream says.

  5. I do remember my dreams often, but at times not. I love my dreams actually:)

    1. If I could remember them, maybe I would love mine too.

  6. Some dreams I remember and some nightmares. The Dream Delivery service seems like a mail oddity.

  7. That sounds really intriguing, though I don't know if I'd want a daily delivery. I sometimes remember my dreams; I often remember parts of them. Sometimes they are very vivid.

    And it's so strange when you wake up, and this entire life and universe just dissolve away.

    1. Yes, don't dreams often seem more vivid than real life?

  8. Intriguing!

    I remember many of my dreams. Some are somewhat prophetic (last ones just before waking). I've practiced lucid dreaming for years and can sometimes consciously change what is happening in a dream. I just tell myself I'm having a dream and I don't like where it is going. It works!

  9. Shivers! Oh, I like this! That dream sounds more like a nightmare though. LOL. Very clever.

    I remember most of my dreams. Does anyone dream in color? Do your dreams ever come true?

    1. Yeah, I'd hate to see what the nightmares looked like.

      I'm guessing I dream in color. Since I don't remember them, I can't say if they come true or not.

  10. That's interesting, getting dreams in the mail. Or nightmares. (Would those come in black envelopes?)
    At first I wasn't sure if these would be dreams as in nocturnal vividness, or dreams as in hopes for the future.

    1. I have no idea if the nightmares arrive in different envelopes - I'm guessing he has a giant stack of pink ones, though. The dreams have all been in the vein of weird things that could only (hopefully) happen in a dream.

  11. Hi Phillip - rarely remember my dreams .. but getting them in the mail - I think I can create enough anxieties without dreams arriving too. Saw the film: Your Name last night - Japanese film on dreams ... Wiki has articles about it ...

    Cheers Hilary

    1. The dreams have been interesting, but not anxiety-causing. I think it is because, even though I don't remember my dreams, the ones that have been coming in the mail don't seem like dreams I would dream. I wonder how I know that?

  12. This is so cool. I do dream a lot. When I was in high school and part of college I used to write down my dreams in great detail. I became quite good at dream recall back then. A dream or a nightmare in the mail would be interesting. Maybe creepier would be if one of the robocalls that I get turned out to be a dream recounter rather that a sales person or an appointment setter.

    1. Although a robo-call dream would be better than the usual robo-call.
