“Dreams are illustrations... from the book your soul is writing about you.”
~~ Marsha Norman
Most of my blog followers know I like to collect quotations and use them in my posts. Today I came across the one above which made me start to worry: what might my soul be writing about me?!
I have recently started having very bizarre dreams. In last night's dream, for instance, I was concerned when our neighbor Brian (sorry, Brian, don't know how you got mixed up in this) started putting out dishes of dog food to draw polar bears away from our homes and protect our dogs. I expressed my fear that instead of leading them away from us, perhaps he was only attracting more to our area. Of course huge polar bears then started lumbering out of the sea oats and oleander, closing in on us.
I realize these bizarre dreams may be due to a lack of sleep from the early morning turtle patrols and sporadic 10+ hour night shifts from dark to dawn as a Wildlife Observer, but dreams such as polar bears descending on the island or me galloping around trying to rustle up a herd of racehorses, etc.?
Perhaps a more fitting quote for today would be,
"I have a grip on reality, just not this one." ~~ Author Unknown.
