A Dream of Water

Afternoon naps have become a rare occurrence lately but today, a Sunday, I managed to catch a long one.  I had intended to doze for just a quarter hour then get up for lunch, but instead I woke up around three.  

I had a vivid dream.  I was on a shore and I was facing a vast ocean.  It was so vast it took my entire field of vision.  As it stretched into the horizon its gradient tracked the spectrum from green to blue.  

Then the ocean rose, the tips of its peaks lined with white roiling surf.  It was a beautiful frightful sight.  The ocean threatened to engulf me.

I stood there and I said: "Bring it."

Then I woke.

What could the dream have meant?
