Dreams and thoughts from the Old Year…

The New Year is here and I have some thoughts about life and some dreams I have had.

–I dreamed the other night that my heart chakra was clutched in an enormous, dark fist.  The fist was my own.  It has been a necessary part of my life, protecting my heart from being damaged.  This reminds me of a country-western song about a personal ad…”one heart, slightly cracked and only comes in blue.”

–I dreamed the other night that I was a member of an historical re-enactment troupe and we were acting out events of the Holocaust. The project required months of rehearsals and location scouting.   I played the part of a Jewish man, escaping down a rushing river to safety.  As I drifted past towns and hamlets in the chilly water, scenes of terror and brutality lined the shore.   I was swept along with the current.   I washed up on a rocky shore.  I staggered into the foyer of a large hotel in the south of France and was re-united with my fellows.   I wept.  We embraced.  There is more to it than that.  It is hard to put into words.  You had to be there.  It was actually quite uplifting.

–I dreamed the other night that instead of eating the gavros fried by the fisherman on the beach in the noonday sun, a taxi driver and I sought out the best gavros in town, cooked by someone’s grandmother. We ate them in the cool shade of a small taverna.

–May 2014 bring us all the dreams we wish and revelations that fill our hearts.
