For the past two months or so, I've been having some strange dream experiences. If you know me at all, you'll know that's saying something. I've been a lucid dreamer since I was 9 or so and heard a program on NPR that gave tips on how to develop the skill. My dreams have recognized … Continue reading Dreams?
I'm not even sure where to begin. I suppose this isn't a big leap from my last post. I'm sitting here in front of the keyboard, a jumble of words trying to fight for the right to flow from my heart through my hands. Maybe I'll start with what I did today, and see where … Continue reading like a hermit moving through a dark night of the soul
I woke up this morning after dreaming several dreams about my dad. It's not the first time, but it was pretty vivid. I sat and wept for a bit this morning. He's left such a huge hole in my reality. It's been almost three months and the hurt is still acute. I know part of … Continue reading Dad, Portland & Other Stuff
Last night I had a dream that I had a baby boy named Aidan. I was at some kind of school reunion, but had to wait in a Catholic church because there wasn't enough room at the school. The church was ornate, with lots of stained glass and deep-colored velvet pews, but it had a … Continue reading Dream
So toasterstrumpet brought up an interesting point on Facebook this morning. I noted via Twitter that I passed two dead birds this morning, both being eaten by other birds. One was at my apartment complex, the other here in front of my office. Her response was to note that it's rather Morrighan-like. After thinking about … Continue reading Birds, Blood & Dreams
Today is Nina's 1st birthday. We're just doing a family thing for her and will have a cake and open the presents that have been sent. I'll take pictures and we'll either post them here or at Ofoto, and I'll post a link here. Last year on this day, at this time, they had just … Continue reading Happy Birthday, Nina!
I know you don't want to read yet another entry about how my body aches, but damn, we worked my shoulders good today. Last week was very good -- some soreness, but not of the debilitating kind. The scale is inching down, though my impending period will probably halt that somewhat. Anyway, for anyone who … Continue reading Body Parts & Fire
Wow, did I have a weird dream about Jeff's mom this morning. I know it was inspired by a phone call from her yesterday, but it disturbed me. When she called yesterday, she was clearly not doing well. She has multiple sclerosis and in the past ten years or so it has really had its … Continue reading MIL Dreams
Two things I want to write about this morning. First, I had a dream about my uncle and Jasmine. At first my dream seemed to be about Jeff and I. We were arguing because he had made plans for Sunday without talking to me. I said, "You've done it again! I asked you the last … Continue reading Two Things in the Morning
Had a dream last night. Civil liberties had finally deteriorated to the point that people who had spoken out against the government in any way were being rounded up and then disappearing. And if they couldn't get the "dissident" then they would take their family. My husband and children were gone and I was running. … Continue reading Dissident
