      Congratulations on the lucid, man! I loved the pre-lucid interaction with Newman btw

      The part with David is great... that feeling when an LD has you so overflowing with joy that you just have to grab the nearest DC and share it with them! Good stuff!

      Two nosepinch false negatives back to back?! Dang! I've never had the nosepinch fail on me when I can remember to. The red door fade away, why do they always seem to fade away when we're on the cusp of something exciting!

      I know what you mean. Like trying to find a sweet warm comforting spot right between the hotness of the heater and the coldness of old man winter's wind screeching against the window. And I guess there's no short way around it and have to figure out who you are by staying lucid/aware so that you can notice how you perform best. Because only you'd know that specific temperature that suits you best.

      It's comforting to know, that I'm wasn't the only one mulling over this and and more and what? Considering how much you've accomplished in LDing, I hope I can complete as many dream goals as you. And you're totally right. It's a journey, and I might as well make the most f it. Do it the way that makes me happy, instead of just looking up the shortest route via google maps, I could just figure it out my own way and have fun in the process.

      And yes I do my best to address my need to overdo it. I'm getting better it though. Even now I'm doing my best to keep my reply short and concise and not totally over the top haha.

      I am mostly writing this based on your Goals section. Let me know if it was of any help or even if it wasn't.

      Personally I've found with my own DJing that I become dissatisfied returning to dream entries where I was too vague about the detail when I know for a fact I had better recall than that for the dream. For dreams where I simply don't have any recall anymore or I know/made note of the fact that recall was poor to begin with, this isn't so much an issue.

      On the other hand, I have also found that if I make very long DJ entries too frequently, my motivation can be a bit dampened by the fact that it's a lot of time and effort to do all the journaling then (sometimes I've taken almost an hour to put together a DJ entry). Lately, I think my general approach has been a bit touch and go but I just try to gauge intuitively how much time I feel I want to spend on DJing when the time comes; more often than not in the last few month's I've been far too tired to make side notes properly on some entries, so I try to just let go of my need for the notes and accept that I might come back to it later or that I can be fine with not being as detailed with my thoughts at times.

      Edit: And of course you will be best equipped to figure out what's the best balance for yourself, I just hope sharing my experience may help you with your decisions in either direction.

      I believe in you. It's funny how much your thoughts, your ideas, your doubts/concerns resemble much of my own. But yeah, go out there and experiment!!! That's what makes things exciting! If I told you the many things I've attempted in making lucid dreaming stick with me! Man, what a journey, and it's only just begun. And the thinking, the theorizing, it's the place where the magic happens; when we get inside our head and just analyze and go over things one, two, three, and a hundred times. Then we put forth a plan, set it up, and observe. It's a continuous cycle that repeats itself and changes; it grows with every new opportunity. We refine and continue to refine.

      Don't forget that rest is a thing! It might be the most important advice I've read. Take it from me, I meditate Sunday to Friday, and rest on Saturdays. If the week is hard for whatever reason, Sunday's off as well. Our muscles/skills only grow if we let them rest. And remember there's always another night.

      Have you ever seen the show, "The Queen's Nose"? It Starred Jordan Metcalfe. It has a ferret that talks after his character made a wish on the Queen's Nose.

      How cool! I was actually able to find that on YouTube. I watched the first episode with the ferret. Very cute.

      That dream with the man on the lake was very interesting, painted quite an interesting visual in my mind.

      Wow, today I learned the Charmin bears don't exist anymore over in Europe. Maybe the Koala has a better subconscious draw for business done..."down under" (forgive me)
      I did remember those bear mascots from when I was young but I didn't know what the brand name was (may have been localised to something else, some big brands were sometimes) but it's interesting that you mentioned it because I just didn't remember their existence at all until you'd mentioned it now. But I honestly don't care enough about the mascots on things as much as a product's quality though.

      Interesting set of dreams. I'm envious that you always seem to have a lot of creatures and beasts featured in your dreams. Very cool stuff
      Maybe you weren't looking for a solution or answer, but I hope I can be of some help.

      Firstly, I don't know if I can give you an adequate answer as to why I have dreams featuring creatures and so on so often but my guess is that a large part of it is that I have never been satisfied with the lack of choice in terms of personal appearance when regarding our general form, silhouette, colouring/patterns, etc... So I've always found alternative humanoid forms to be quite appealing, especially in the sense of wanting to have such forms, and much of my drawn artwork also relates to these themes. Apart from that, I do spend a fair bit of time dwelling on and reading about symbols, many of which are imagery of animals or mythical creatures.

      If you wanted to dream more about creatures and beasts I would certainly encourage you to fill your head with the respective visual imagery, either from illustrated stories or films or just from trying to draw them yourself. I don't think a person has to be a good artist or draughtsman to be able to use drawing as an effective technique to delve into this sort of thing and get appropriate results.

      That said, I have never been able to incubate dreams properly and dream lucidity is something I haven't yet really gotten more regular than once or twice a year at best, so for all I know, my advice may not necessarily be good advice, but based on my general knowledge of the topics, I think that if you'd like to see these themes more frequently yourself, it would certainly be worth spending a bit of time exploring some ways of bringing that about, actively.
