I should post a bit from my dream journal–I dreamed last night I had the runs and had an accident just inside the front door of this building. I think the building was one my husband was building, but it was sort of like little apartments or temporary domiciles for some sort of excursion or vacation. Each one slept about four people and I had the feeling most of them were young people, traveling. Some of the “dorms” were superior to others. There were strangers I didn’t know that didn’t particularly take to my “accident.” However. Especially one woman.
Luckily, most of it was on this huge “welcome mat.” And I could clean it up. Isn’t that a funny image??
Hm, now it doesn’t take a shrink to figure out that dream and I wondered how soon it would be before I felt guilty for expressing my anger–justified or not. Everybody has a hard way to go in this life and I might not have made it easier for some.
Still, anger and feelings are part of life. And if we aren’t allowed to express it once in a while, it’s not much of a life and our loved ones don’t really love us much if they aren’t willing to engage with it.
I did manage to get this all cleaned up in the dream. It strikes me as provocatively but weirdly amusing. Perhaps my “accident” had nothing to do with this recent thing at all–a harbinger of things to come like that decapitated bird on my deck!
But I’ve never had a dream like that before. So it must mean something pretty significant.

I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…
