THANK YOU TO ALL of you who were so gracious with your condolences on my last post. Your words really do feed my soul.
On to other subjects. It's raining here. I know many of you are having record heat but we lucky souls here in the Pacific Northwest have it pretty dang easy. That is if you like rain. And I do. It beats sweltering heat any day of the week. If you're reading this while a fan is blowing air on your head or you can hear the hum of the AC, I'm sending you buckets of PNW rain. Feel better soon!
I wanted to write about dreams. Since sleep is a part of being alive and dreams are part of sleep, this subject is one we can all relate to, right? I think dreams are fascinating. I have a couple of books that document dream-themes, dream-symbols and the (controversial) Jung-inspired "collective consciousness." The books haven't made me any smarter but I still like the whole idea of understanding ourselves through our dreams.
Twice now in the past, say, two weeks I've had the same dream. I'm in my house but it's not my day house. It's a different place but it's my house. It must be my "dream" house but it's not my day "dream" house because I don't live in that house. (I can't afford it.) No it's my night-dream house and it's not a house I would want to live in because it has spiders. And they're big spiders. And they only come out at night so I guess you could call them night-spiders. They're worse than day-spiders. You'll be sleeping on the floor (because in my night-dream house we apparently don't own beds) and out from under the blanket will come a huge spider. And out from the cracks of the walls, (My night-dream house must need a handyman.) will come these humongous spiders. We, my night-dream family (who are different than my day-dream family who aren't really a dream-family except on Christmas morning maybe) want to leave this weird house because we can't sleep with these vicious, huge spiders coming out at night. And that is the end of the dream.
Anyone care to venture a guess as to what this means? And, do you have recurring dreams? One you'd like to share here? Ah, come on... It'll be fun.
