Perchance to Dream

I often wonder what my dreams mean–not that I usually remember them at all.  When I do, I figure it must mean something.  I’ve often puzzled over a dream I used to have about Sadie, my late and very beloved beagle–she was driving away in a beige Ford Fairlane, braking for a stop sign, while I pursued on foot, yelling for her to come back.  Instead, she signalled a left turn and pulled on out into light traffic.  :)  She was quite a good driver, for a dog.  I was afraid, for a while, that the dream was a premonition of her imminent departure, but in actuality, she lived for a long time afterward.

Then there was the one about the three level mansion.  It was HUGE, and the first two floors were lovely.  The third, however, was always off-limits, somehow dangerous.  Yet I knew it was beautifully furnished and wanted to use the space.  I had the dream several times before I took a friend’s advice and asked my guardian angel to accompany me there if the dream came again.  Sure enough, it did, and I climbed the stairs to the mysterious floor, where there was, among other things, a magnificent grand piano.  The space did feel a little creepy at first, but, after that, everything was okay.

Venturing a guess, I’d say that scary third floor symbolized an unconscious fear of going to a new level in some area of my life, but who knows?

Have a lovely weekend, my friends.  Smile at someone.  Relax with a good book. 

That’s what I intend to do.

    Not sure if dreams actually mean something, but I can usually trace where a thing in the dream came from. Like a stray dog I found, house I was looking at, or maybe a relative I had been thinking of. (I know, never end a sentence with a preposition

    Another interesting dream. I wonder if I don’t remember because I don’t usually sleep very deeply?? I sure know that my mind can keep me awake if somethings bothering me big time. I always told my husband I could solve the worlds problems before falling asleep. He would be out in 10 seconds, it never seemed fair.

    Hi Linda, I LOVE the way you write. I now have a vivid mental picture of your Sadie driving away in the Ford Truck, maybe with a big doggie smile cuz she’s driving. :) I get this same experience with all your books, especially the western books.

    Also, one quick question. In The Creed Legacy book, the character Carolyn Simmons was browsing I believe in friendly faces (?) and saw that Slade Barlow was a widower and available. Is he the same Slade Barlow from Big Sky Country? I trully hope not; but if so, will you be writing another book for Slade? (I guess it’s two questions) :)

    I love the dream of Sadie driving a truck away. I can see her doing it in my mind. I don’t remember many dreams but when I do they seem very real. Enjoy your weekend and happy crafting.

“Keep your ear to the ground” referred to the practice of plainsmen listening to the ground to hear hoof beats. It became the westerner’s warning to stay alert.
