dreams: recycled road signs + rulers

maybe recording my dreams is changing me. i have a good theory about this one, but of course my sisters' views are always welcome. i dreamed I made an art project out of converting old road signs into bookends. i cut the danger sign down to size to prop up my books. i think this is warning me to take care of myself as I work on this fun but deadline driven writing project I have on at the moment. the next dream was about cleaning up a desk. I kept finding rulers of all shapes and sizes, hidden among the pages and clutter. mundane I suppose but telling I think. need to ponder on that one a bit. ideas welcome.

earth hour

how did you spend earth hour this weekend? we spent the hour reading this book by candlelight. lovely. no opera from the muse but a virtual vacation and I don't even drink wine! she is a great writer.

live in the land of oars

sometimes you are your own best guru.

i rediscovered this wisdom and find it is on my mind a lot. god grant me the strength to change the things I can. the courage to accept the things I can not change and the wisdom to know the difference. friday was a low but this reminder helped to turn things right again.

dreams: birds + apples

i'm back. so many posts to catch up on. last night i had a dream that this predator bird (black) was about to eat this tiny robin. the robin almost accepted her fate and at the last second, when she was in his mouth, she used her beak to attack the predator bird in the eyes, and she was free. awhile ago, i had a dream that eldest sisters (me) weren't allowed to eat apples. so many "sisters" rolled apples across a field secretly to me. it was all about secretly getting me the apples i needed. the sisterhood of the travelling apples. both dreams seemed like good signs. what do you think?

good find: bridget

the last two episodes of tapestry have inspired me lately. celtic rituals are fascinating. poetic. here's to celebrating the Irish mind, holding two thinks at the same time. heal, baby heal.
