Strange Dreams - What do they mean?

So from time to time we all most of us have a strange dream or two and most of them we just wake thinking well that was a weird dream. I had one of these weird dreams the night before last and it left me curious as to the meaning.

In the dream I am back in my home town at the grave of my granddad (spooky right?) I am putting down yellow flowers when my phone rings its an old friend, someone I feel close to, we go for a walk in the woods but nobody talks. That's the basics of the dream anyway, I woke wanting to check that my friend was ok as its odd for me to dream of him, In fact he has never been in any of my dreams.

So I decided like a normal sane person to dissect the dream to come up with the meaning to hopefully make myself feel better.

SO I took the first part of my dream to be Home as I guess that's what the dream was getting at:
   To see your home in your dream signifies security, basic needs, and values. You may be feeling at "home" or settled at your new job or environment. Alternatively, the dream represents your basic needs and priorities.
In particular, to see your childhood home, your hometown, or a home that you previously lived in, indicates your own desires for building a family and your family ideologies. It also reflects aspects of yourself that were prominent or developed during the time you lived in that home. You may experience some unfinished feelings that are being triggered by some waking situation. Alternatively, the dream may represent your outdated thinking.

Secondly I was at my Granddads Grave:
To dream that you are at a grave indicates that you need to delve into your own subconscious in search of an issue that you thought had been put to rest. You need to stand up for yourself for no one else can do it for you. Alternatively, it represents something is about to be completed in your life. You are leaving behind the old and making a new start. The dream may also be a pun on feeling grave or concerns about a serious or sad situation.

Thirdly my Friend:
To see an old ex-boyfriend from childhood in your dream refers to a freer, less encumbered relationship. The dream serves to bring you back to a time where the responsibilities of adulthood (or marriage) did not interfere with the spontaneity of romance
Alternatively, dreaming of a friend indicates positive news.
You may be wanting to escape the pressures and stresses of adulthood. Consider the relationship you had with this friend and the lessons that were learned. 
To see friends from your past in your dream points to your desire to reconnect with a part of yourself that you have lost touch with. 

Fourthly the woods:
the woods symbolize the unknown and the subconscious. You need to open yourself up to discovering your potential and your instinctual nature.
To dream that you are walking through the woods signify your return to an aspect of yourself that is innocent and spiritual. 

and finally the silence:
To dream that someone is silent means that you are unsure about this person's intentions. Perhaps you are still trying to understand them. There may be a sense of uneasiness

So here is what I got. I am feeling uneasy about something ( not sure what but I am sure I will find out) and so my friend was in my dream as I am comfortable with them but I do not completely understand him. I am feeling innocent and spiritual and need to open myself for new things.

Basically I am none the wiser but it was fun finding out the meanings behind the dream. 

Have you had any strange dreams? or do you understand dreams?
