my recent dreams have been largely third person, with a clear 'me' character whom I follow around but not quite in sync, more like a silent invisible person slightly to my side, sometimes looking back at, or down at what seems to be me. I am not sure how much I control my actions, though, or whether I am just an observer.
when I was younger I also had a lot of slightly removed dreams, including some peculiar 2D dreams, ones that were just, scenery without any plot or action. usually those were in colour, although some with very muted colours, or stylized rendering similar to the work of Maurice Sendak, whose books I read often as a child. >>245
this sometimes, less so now, though mine were more totally abstract, or as described above.
