new ~

Discovering a new room in a familiar place like your own house is a common dream that is sometimes interpreted to mean the discovery of a new talent or a new part of yourself.

The proponents of this simplistic symbolism seem to ignore the obvious fact that extra rooms in a house will by definition be useless.

Save your need for symbolism for when you wake up and rush to claim the new room as your own by moving your bed in it and making a pillow fort by the door.
