|Sketchbook Collage, July 2014|
Some frequent dream images or situations ~ big houses with lots of rooms, climbing hills or mountains, locations in San Francisco, homes I've lived in in the past, places I worked at in the past, actors I like (it's never sexual), streets in places I've lived in (Santa Cruz, San Francisco, LA) albeit never like they are in waking reality. I've had so many dreams about a particular organization I worked for over 20 years ago that I can hardly remember the reality of my working there. Bizarre.
I always hoped I'd dream of great spiritual things like spirit animals, symbols, nature, etc. But no ~ the messages come to me in rather mundane stories. Earlier in my life these strange dream tales spoke loudly to me of things I was dealing with in waking life. Now, I'm not exactly sure how the dreams fit into my everyday reality. Except, perhaps, to confirm for me that I am on the right path in slowing down and removing as much stress from my life as possible. My cockamamie dreams are stressful enough.
Finished my hybrid (regular writing & shabby style) journal yesterday. Will post tomorrow. I'm almost ready to start using it.
We're having typical early-June weather in Fortuna now. Overcast and cold, often lots of wind, if we're lucky the sun will come out mid- to late afternoon. And then it'll get hot for a couple hours before it cools off again.
Strange days. Unusual life. Enjoy yours. xo
