the flying funeral dream

Haven't posted dreams a a long while. Here's one I had last night.

The dream finds me in a mall where I'm with some old friends. We're at the food court ordering pizza. I go to find a seat. I see my friends sitting in a circle. I go get a seat. My other friend comes to sit down beside me. I help her sit down with me. She puts her hand on my leg and starts to eat her pizza. I start to eat my pizza. After a few bites my friend asks me if I want to go and eat in her office. Guess she works at the mall. I tell her "Sure" and we get our stuff and leave the circle. We're walking towards her office when someone comes up to me. They ask me to run an errand for them I try to get out of it as I knew what would be happening if I headed back to the office with my friend but I couldn't. Next thing I know I have a suit on. I'm at a funeral with her. The friend from the mall. I'm walking with her in a graveyard towards a huge circle of people. I don't think I know any of them. I don't think I know the deceased. Anyway, I'm walking with her. The circle seems father as much as it feels like its getting closer by every step. The circle seems like its beginning to be like an enigma. We finally get there. We're standing there while a man dressed up as a priest is a man I know from my childhood. He was my junior high school gym teacher. I look around. Some people look familiar, some people don't. The girl is there though. Beside me. Holding hands. The funeral ends and we start to walk away from the group. We start to find more momentum in our step. The more we're walking faster the more we're feeling we're not on the ground. We're suddenly flying. Holding hands. Flying high in the sky. We're looking all over trying to fathom the fact that we're ridding beside birds and plains. It feels cool. We feel free. We're flying....

I wake up.

By the way. Looked it up. When you dream that you're flying it means "If you are flying with ease and enjoying the scene and landscape below, then it suggests that you are on top of a situation. You have risen above something. It may also mean that you have gained a different perspective on things. Flying dreams and the ability to control your flight is representative of your own personal sense of power." Meanwhile, when you dream you attend a funeral of someone you don't know it "suggests that something in your life is supposed to put to rest or put aside so that you can make room for something new. You need to investigate further what aspect or component of your life you need to let go."
