Yes. I always dream in colour too. All the sound effects are there, like watching a movie on the big screen! Sometimes when I wake up, it takes me some time to 'get back' into the 'here and now' so to speak. I often carry the atmosphere of the dream for some hours after - be it a happy dream, or a not so happy one.
A lot of my dreams have been symbolic too, like when I was ill, having a repeated dream of riding a bike which had tyres that I had to keep pumping up, because they kept going flat!
Interesting things - dreams!
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
