My father is suffering from post retirement depression. Now he's become a non-energetic lazy blob. However the father appeared in my dream today gave me a totally different impression. I'd like to believe it was his real self.
dream: I was in Japanese country side staying at a traditional inn. I remember watching a poplar tree for a while. The tree had no leafs, but I could see little green buds on its trunk. I found myself playing with my dad in the river. We were on the cliff and the water poured into a little lake down there. The height of the waterfall seemed like a little less than 100ft. I looked down at the bottom and got shaken up. When I tried to stay away from the edge, my father jumped from the cliff. He was like an Olympic diver. He didn't have any fear. Right before he fell into the water, his body made a pirouette. I was totally impressed by his braveness but I came back to the inn without waiting for him. I was sitting on the bed when I saw him walking into the room. He was soaking wet. He said something and sit on my bed. I told him not to do that for my bed was getting wet, but he just kept sitting on it. I felt he was joking so I pushed him. I pushed him all the way to the entrance like a piece of rock.
