When I have a particularly vivid dream I write it down as soon as possible. If I wake up in the middle of a dream I try to write it down straight away not leaving it till morning when the details of it will almost certainly be lost forever. One night while sleeping I was also aware that I was dreaming. During the dream I heard some of the most beautiful choral singing I have ever heard. It was literally divine so that I didn't want it to end. While still dreaming I thought to myself: "I'll write this tremendously uplifting and inspirational music down when I wake up." Sadly, that was not to be. For when I awoke the next morning the only thing I could remember was the "feeling" of delight and fulfilment I got from the music - but not one note of the music remained in consciousness. It was a truly heavenly experience too such that I often wonder if I did actually visit heaven that night! Does anyone else keep a dream-diary? I too have had many "running away in a panic" dreams which can be pretty frightening but a great relief when you wake up at the moment of being caught! That's a heavenly expereince too. I've also had the strange experience of telling myself jokes during a dream (jokes I've never heard before) and then woke up laughing at the punch-line!! That can be a little embarresssing at 3-00am when the house is as quiet as a mouse! I have a vivid imagination. I keep notebooks by my bed so that should I wake up in the night with an inspirational idea, a line for a poem, words for a song, or a subject for a talk I'm giving somewhere I get out of bedd and write it down. It's good practise which I highly recommend. The brain is alert and inventive while we sleep. Some of the best material I've ever written was set down in the small hours by the light of the moon.
