What are your Dream Symbols ?

How much of your dream time is of modern social nature, to the ratio of the natural or primordial.
Also any recurring dreams.

Recurring dreams are:
1. I'm on a road or path, sometimes through buildings or forests, and there are signs of people having been around perhaps the day before. But I never see any other people.
2. I'm driving on a road and suddenly remember where I am. I'm close to a sideroad that I discovered years ago, a road that leads to the edge of a canyon that dwarfs the Grand Canyon, a road that slowly descends the cliff-face, revealing a panaramic vista of rock formations in every color of the rainbow. I try to find that sideroad and usually fail. Once, I actually found it.
3. There's a person I desparately need to see, and I'm traveling to see her. I keep getting distracted in the dream and then remembering to resume my journey.

I don't have reoccurring dreams.
My dreams run the gambit from futuristic space odyssey to a learn how to fly boot camp in a wilderness setting. I don't normally dream about animals, but when I do they are usually malicious.
Actually, now that I think about it, there is this one old man that has shown up in my dreams on 3 separate occasions. He taught me how to fly. He has also shown me the most amazing sunset/sunrise I've ever "seen".
I find it interesting that some people do not dream in color...

Like Pyrotex, my repeated dream is most often one of discovery, often discovering new rooms in a building. This symbolizes needing to discover our hidden talents. I have used a dream symbolism book to interpret my dreams, and found this helpful. Sometimes predicting a major life change. These were most common when I was in a bad marriage that I really needed to get out of.
I regret not having nature oriented dreams. I am think I would like to get out of city and reconnect with nature.

I see and hear one of the blood hounds is hurt and limping and making high pitched yelps.
I stop running and call the dog over to examine its wound. Suddenly I am surrounded by officers of the law. They seemed more concerned about the dog than apprehending me.
They ask about the blood hounds injury, I tell them it looks like a snake bite, they carry the dog away.
I keep walking until I reach a farm house, as I come around the corner of the house I'm startled to see strange barnyard animals in the front yard. They appear to be a mix of mythological creatures and run of the mill farm animals, and one very large buffalo.
They appear to be in the middle of a discussion, they all turn to look at me. I get the feeling they were waiting for me and the buffalo is the leader. I see a light on in the house and realize that I have stumbled into a fairy tale story, the house was the lair of an evil witch and I was about to be inextricably drawn into the plot were I play the hapless traveler abducted by the witch for some vile propose. I was having none of it, I turn and run across the field toward an open stretch of water, with the horde of beast chasing behind.
When I reached the edge of the water I lift my arms to grab the tension in the air and pull my self up and up and begin flapping my arms into a speedy flight pattern. I look back to see I am still being pursued by what looks like a flock of sand hill cranes and the buffalo is now flying beside me and has grown a set of wings. It has a human type face and is smiling at me knowingly, as if to say, this is part of the story. I wake up and checked the clock 4:10 am.
