I think that dreams mean something. And I don't mean that like how you read a dream analysis book* and they say: Oh, you dreamed about a tomato, that means you are going to be invited to a wedding. I think that dreams are far more personal. They are your brain pondering a situation or trying to work something out.
That said I like to try to figure out what my dreams were telling me. Sometimes it is real obvious and other times it is a puzzle. Sometimes the big obvious thing (the elephant in the room) in the dream isn't the message your brain is trying to send you.
Most of those kinds of dreams (for me anyway) tend to be epic adventures with large casts of characters. Sometimes even those have some deep seating meaning. I have a friend who also has the epic dreams with large casts. She once noted that in dreams you skip the boring parts and just jump from one adventure to the next. She's so right and that's a good way to explain how/why dreams jump around so much.
The Fine Print: All products by Stampin' Up except paper flowers by Prima. * Although dream analysis books are fun because of the weird and random connections they come up with.
