I was skiing on a flat light day. heading down a line I had never tried before. there was a lot of blowing snow in the air. all of a sudden the chute started narrowing very quickly. I came in to an area that I couldn't see until i was right on top of it. a large band of rock and small cliffs. there was no way down with out taking a fifty to sixty foot air, and I couldn't see the landing. Also I knew I was going to need a lot more speed then I would be able to get to clear it. I felt a surge of panic. the sort of adrenaline that usually accompanies those situations. I remember opening my mouth to say something but nothing came out. I was completely exposed. There was one line that looked safe but for some reason it scared the shit out of me. I looked around in every direction and noticed a weather tower that had some sort of cable going from it into the trees below the cliffs. The next thing I knew I was scrambling to get to the top of the tower. once there I managed to get my skis back on. then using my poles I slid down the cable as if it were a zip line. I zipping along high over the cliffs and all feelings of fear had long gone. I knew I could let go and stomp into the powder below. so I released my poles and floated down into the softest white snow. safe and sound. skiing away.

Of the four Elements, air and fire are regarded as active and male; water
and earth as passive and female. In some elemental cosmogonies, fire is given
pride of place and considered the origin of all things, but the more general belief is
that air is the primary element. Compression or concentration of air creates heat
or fire, from which all forms of life are then derived. Air is essentially related to
three sets of ideas: the creative breath of life, and, hence, speech; the stormy
wind, connected in many mythologies with the idea of creation; and, finally,
space as a medium for movement and for the emergence of life-processes. Light,
flight, lightness, as well as scent and smell, are all related to the general symbolism
of air (3). Gaston Bachelard says that for one of its eminent worshippers,
Nietzsche, air was a kind of higher, subtler matter, the very stuff of human
freedom. And he adds that the distinguishing characteristic of aerial nature is that
it is based on the dynamics of dematerialization. Thoughts, feelings and memories
concerning heat and cold, dryness and humidity and, in general, all aspects of
climate and atmosphere, are also closely related to the concept of air. According to
Nietzsche, air should be cold and aggressive like the air of mountain tops. Bachelard
relates scent to memory, and by way of example points to Shelley’s characteristic
lingering over reminiscences of smell.
To dream about the air, symbolizes creativity and intelligence. If the air is foggy or polluted, then it suggests that your thought process or mind is clouded.

In the Egyptian system of hieroglyphs, the tower is a determinative
sign denoting height or the act of rising above the common level in life or society
(19). Basically, then, the tower is symbolic of ascent. During the Middle Ages,
towers and belfries held the significance of watch-towers, but also, by the simple
application of the symbolism of level (whereby material height implies spiritual
elevation), they expressed the same symbolism as the ladder—linking earth and
heaven. The tower-symbol, given that it is enclosed and walled-in, is emblematic of the Virgin Mary, as can be seen in a great many allegorical designs and litanies
(14). Since the idea of elevation or ascent, implicit in the tower, connotes transformation and evolution, the athanor (the alchemists’ furnace) was given the
shape of a tower to signify inversely that the metamorphosis of matter implied a
process of ascension. Another symbol usually mentioned in this connexion is the
bronze tower in which Danae, the mother of Perseus, was imprisoned (48).
Finally we would point to the analogy between the tower and man: for just as the
tree is closer to the human figure than are the horizontal forms of animals, so, too,
is the tower the only structural form distinguished by vertically: windows at the
topmost level, almost always large in size, correspond to the eyes and the mind
of man. It is in this sense that the Tower of Babel acquired special symbolic point
as a wild enterprise bringing disaster and mental disorder (31). And, for the same
reason, the sixteenth enigma of the Tarot denotes catastrophe by the image of a
tower struck by lightning. However, it is possible to discover a dual tendency in
the symbolism of the tower. Its upward impulse may be accompanied by a
deepening movement; the greater the height, the deeper the foundations. Nietzsche
talked of descent during ascent. Nerval (in Aurélia, to be precise) refers to the
symbolism of the tower and says: ‘I found myself in a tower, whose foundations
were sunk so deep into the earth and whose top was so lofty, reaching up like a
spire into the sky, that my whole existence already seemed bound to be consumed
in climbing up and down it.’
To dream of seeing a tower, denotes that you will aspire to high elevations. If you climb one, you will succeed in your wishes, but if the tower crumbles as you descend, you will be disappointed in your hopes.
To see a tower in your dream, signifies high hopes and aspirations. If you are looking down from a tower, then it indicates that you have a perceived superiority over others. Your ego is inflated. Alternatively, a tower symbolizes the phallus.
To see a water tower in your dream, suggests that you are keeping your emotions inside. You may be unable to express your true feelings, especially feelings of love. Alternatively, a water tower indicates a false sense of security.

To dream that a tower is falling or crumbling, heralds a drastic change ahead.

The Tower represents sudden and sometimes shocking changes in events and can often represent problems or delays relating to your home or the purchasing of home.
