Things Aren’t Always As Big As They Seem

Last night I dreamt I was in a strange library.  On a huge shelf, way above everything was this enormous book.  It must've been two stories high and as wide across as the front of a house.  The title, which I could barely read, said something about the history of giants, which changed when I looked at it again to the history of miniature, toy soldiers.

Someone decided to get a long stick and poke at the massive book until it fell down, so we could look at it - though it was going to take a few of us just to open the cover.

He started poking and the book began to fall, but as it fell and turned we realized it was only a page, and as it settled to the ground it rolled itself neatly up into tube-rolled poster.  The entire thing had been an optical illusion, drawn to look like a massive book with millions of pages - when, in fact, it had only been a large sheet of paper; like the art of Julian Beever.

Anyone else get the feeling that my dream is trying to tell me not to make mountains out of molehills - that maybe what seems huge and overwhelming is actually quite small and manageable if only I change my perspective?
